Connect to the modem, enter the command: AT and wait for the response: OK
Reset the modem to the factory default configuration:
AT+CFUN=1,1
Set the error reporting to verbose, resulting in more descriptive error messages (optional):
AT+CMEE=2
Check if the SIM card is attached and is not locked with a PIN, expected response: +CPIN: READY:
AT+CPIN?
If you receive an error, the SIM may not be inserted properly or the SIM is protected with a PIN. By default, Monogoto SIMs are not PIN protected.

Query device information

Request the modem hardware version:
AT+CGMM
Request the modem firmware version:
AT+CGMR
Request the IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity):
AT+CIMI
Request the ICCID (Integrated Circuit Card ID), which is the identification number of the SIM card
AT+ICCID

Network Configuration

Manually set the network:
Monogoto's private LTE network is indicated with the MCCMNC code: 315010. To connect to the private LTE network, enter:
AT+COPS=1,2,"315010"
To test if the network is set correctly enter:
AT+COPS?
Expected response: +COPS: 0,2,“315010”,7 7 indicates that the modem is using LTE.
Check the radio signal strength and signal quality:
AT+CSQ
Example response: +CSQ: 22,1
+CSQ returns 2 values separated by a comma. The first value represents the signal strength and provides a value between 0 and 31; a higher number indicates better signal strength. The second value represents the signal quality indicated by a value between 0 and 7, a lower value indicates better signal quality . If AT+CSQ returns 99,99, the signal is undetectable or unknown.

Network Activation

Set the APN to data.mono:
AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","data.mono"
To test if the APN is set correctly, enter:
AT+CGDCONT?
Expected response: +CGDCONT: 1,"IP","data.mono","0.0.0.0",0,0,0
Activate the PDP (packet data protocol) context:
AT+CGACT=1,1
Test if the PDP context is activated:
AT+CGACT?
Expected response: +CGACT: 1,1

Request Serving Cell Information

AT#SERVINFO
Example response:
#SERVINFO: 55340,-69,“”,“315010",0000801,0200,320,3,-95
  • 315010 (the fourth value) indicates that the device being connected to Monogoto's Private LTE Network
  • 3 (the second-last value), indicates an active CS & PS service

Test what cellular band the modem is using:

AT#RFSTS
Example response:
#RFSTS: “315 010”,55340,-95,-69,-6,0200,255,,320,19,2,0000801,“240075817191342",“”,3,48
The last value: 48 represents the cellular band the modem is currently using.

Validate if your device received an IP address:

AT+CGPADDR=
Expected response: +CGPADDR: 1,10.XXX.XX.XXX
Do you see an IP address? Congratulations! 🎉 You’ve successfully connected the LM960 modem to Monogoto.
