​​​​​​APNs for data sharing and a more secure connection

​​Data exchange and safer internet connection through the Almadar Aljadid APN service

APN stands for Access Point Name. It is a setting on your mobile phone that identifies an external network through which your phone can have access to the internet.

It’s can be private and corporate and allows customers to directly access their LAN (Local Area Network) to specify certain parameters such the private address given to the device attributes for user authentication.

Once a corporate user has established a connection on the corporate APN, the GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) device will be able to exchange data with the customer’s corporate network.

Customers purchasing a private APN have the liberty to choose the name of their APN which can consist of up to 9 digits.

What is the advantage of a private APN?

With a private APN, traffic is secure and never goes on a public network, staying completely on GPRS. This reduces complexities in the communications path and constitutes one less chance of failure in the system.

As it is secure, devices aren't vulnerable to attacks from external parties such as spammers or virus-based activities.
