Compatibility between DriWe Charger and EMnify IOT SIM
I'm wondering if EMnify IOT SIMs can be used on Driwe Charger. I looked at the Driwe Charger data sheet but it only says that the charger is able to connect via TCP/IP and GPRS.
Regarding GPRS I suppose that this means that the charger has a slot for SIM cards.
Can anyone help me?
Thank you in advance for your availability.
If the device has a slot for a SIM card, it will work. According to the data sheet of the Driwe Charger, indeed it supports GPRS, so I assume it comes with a SIM card slot, but it could also come with an embedded SIM. Please contact the manufacturer for further clarification and let us know if indeed it comes with a SIM card slot, so that it can help other EMnify customers.
Once confirmed, In the settings tab of the device, you just need to ensure that the APN em is set. Then your device will be ready to start transmitting data.Azioni per commenti
Thank you very much for the answer, very useful. I'll contact the manufacturer to perform the check you suggested and I'll update the topic as soon as I have an answer.
A further question, eventually if the SIM slot is available, I am sure that I can connect the device to the EMnify backend even if the charger does not support a VPN connection or roaming? In the data sheet I read nothing about the VPN support and roaming.
Any modern device has the roaming feature available and enabled by default, I would not expect any issues with this.
With regards to the VPN, this is independent from the device, as the VPN is between the EMnify core and your application server. Your device should always work, regardless of the VPN.
