Discover our set of APIs to supervise and consume network resources
By simplification, last attach corresponds to last location update for one specific SIM. Location updates information includes the following information:
- MCC: Mobile Country Code
- MNC: Mobile Network Code
- RAT: Radio Access Technology
- IMEI: International Mobile Equipment Identity
An update is usually triggered:
- When the device is switched on (but not always in reboots though)
- When the device moves to a new area (and connects to a new cell)
- When the device connects to another bearer type (ex: from LTE to 3G)
- At regular intervals to keep the connection active, as each operator requires devices to do so to stay connected (the duration of these intervals varies from operator to operator)
For more information, please refer to network attach procedure definition.
Location update history
This API gives visibility on location updates of the past 3 months for one specific SIM, even if there is no traffic.
⚠️ Launch of a new attach procedure may depend on device / modem own network behavior.
Depending on your account settings, Off-net messaging may be restricted. Please contact your account manager to know more about this feature.
Both text and binary messages are supported.
- For text message, the content is expected in UTF-8 and as such non latin characters are supported as well
- For binary message, the content is expected as a Hexadecimal string
When sending your SMS message, you have the ability to specify the originator of the message. This originator could be:
- a number (MSISDN international format without +)
- a short number
- or a text
For network security reasons and to prevent abuses, any originator value must first be whitelisted and allowed for your account.
Please contact your account manager for any request regarding this configuration.
Our API supports automatic encoding based on your message content.
For latin characters, the standard GSM 7-bits encoding will be used automatically allowing to have up to 160 characters in a single SMS.
When non latin characters are included, the encoding will switch automatically to UCS-2 encoding in order to supports other languages, reducing the max number of characters to 70.
The encoding used to process your SMS, will be returned in our API response.
As a standard text SMS only supports up to 160 characters (when using standard GSM encoding), our API supports automatic segmentation which will allow you to send long SMS messages easily.
The number of segments generated by your SMS, will be returned in our API response.
All your SMS messages will be stored for a period of 3 months during which you can consult their details. Past this delay, they will be automatically deleted.
This API offers the possibility of sending OTA commands to SIM cards. Today we support one OTA command which triggers the switch from a public network to a private network.
