An APN (Access Point Name) is a gateway between a 3G/LTE/LTE-A/5G mobile network and another computer network, accessing the public internet or private Virtual Private Network (VPN). It is a unique identifier that allows a connection to the network and identifies the data access services associated with your account. The APN is the exit point from the Mobile Network Operator’s (MNO) 3G/LTE/LTE-A/5G network into either the public internet or a private network.

Saicom’s Fixed Location APN (often referred to as LTE-A or Fixed Location LTE) on MTN’s network offers clients the benefits of postpaid, fully aggregated cellular data, with the ability to manage and report on every single SIM card. Clients are not required to install any extra physical infrastructure of their own in order to implement this solution, except for a possible upgrade of the CPE (Customer Premise Equipment). Clients are able to procure an enterprise data bundle and allow all LTE-A SIM cards to share in this data pool.

No, Each SIM can use as much or as little data as required, the total data bundle will increase by 10GiB per SIM, but that SIM is not linked directly to that 10GiB increase. So, 1 SIM could use 15 GiB while another uses 5GiB, and the total data bundle will be 20GiB
Only Router models which are Category 6 or above and MIMO 4/4 can be added to the approved list of routers. If you have a router which meets the above requirements, the router will need to go through an approval and testing process with MTN. If you would like to go through this process the below will need to be provided to us:

Packaging Information (Dimensions and Barcode information)
All the data will be pooled to your enterprise bundle. E.g. If you order 10 SIMs, 100GiB of data will be allocated to your enterprise bundle for all SIMs to share. As you add SIM cards the bundle will increase by 10GiB and decrease by 10GiB if you cancel a SIM after the contract period.
You also have the ability to purchase an Addon bundle to your Enterprise Bundle. Bundles ranging from 10GiB to 1Pebibyte are available.
If you exceed your Enterprise bundle you will be charge at the in bundle rate in increments of 10GiB
