Question / Issue
Can I change wireless carriers?

Answer / Solution
LAN-Cell 2 (LC2-411)
The LAN-Cell 2 uses standard PC-Card (PCMCIA) modems -- the same cards used in laptops.  You can use any of the supported PC-Card modems on any available cellular carrier.   See the LAN-Cell 2 product specifications or contact sales@proxicast.com for information on the specific PC-Card modems currently supported.


LAN-Cell 1xMG-401, GPRS-401
The dual band CDMA and quad band GSM radios enable the LAN-Cell to operate on most wireless systems worldwide.  It is possible to redeploy the LAN-Cell onto a different wireless carrier than the one it was originally configured for.  The converson process depends upon the LAN-Cell model.

The carrier specific information for GSM models is primarily contained on the SIM.  You will need to acquire a SIM for your new provider, then change the APN, username and password on the LAN-Cell's WAN/CellularModem web configuration page.

For the LAN-Cell CDMA models, carrier specific configuration parameters are embedded in low-level firmware on the CDMA radio chip itself.  Reprogramming these parameters for a different carrier will require that you return the unit to Proxicast for the conversion.

Please contact sales@proxicast.com for more information about the availaiblity of specific wireless carriers, radio firmware upgrades and trade-in programs.
