What if your truck plies from Dubai to Oman? How could you set up roaming with a GPS tracking device? How can you possibly reduce/save on the roaming data charges?
In this post, I’m going to show you how to configure a Ruptela GPS device for a cross border truck in 5 easy steps.
Once configured, you will soon see that the device continues to use home country GSM network (Etisalat, UAE) until the truck crosses the border. Once the truck reaches the new territory it would automatically switch over to a new GSM provider, in this example (OmanTel, Oman).
The switch-over is achieved with a simple trick, GSM Operator code profile switching. This option allows you to define different module behaviour while the truck is in Home network and/or Roaming network.
The feature is commonly used for GPS device that is installed in cross border trucks on roaming, and the purpose is to have the device pass the location updates to the server while in Home/Roaming operator network based on a set of rules so that you can cut down on GSM data charges.
Please make sure your GPS device is updated with latest firmware and is configured with basic parameters. You may refer to Ruptela ECO4+ configuration guide for detailed configuration steps.
