UNAVCO summary of Proxicast cellular modems and networking

Proxicast CDMA modems are being utilized for data downloading of Trimble NetRS GPS receivers at permanent GPS stations in the Western United States.



Proxicast recommends using a firmware-version-specific configuration file, so it is suggested that the new aqp3 firmware be applied before using the new aqp3-compatible configuration files.

AC881 cards (AT&T/Cingular) require the patched firmware version "402AQP3_AC881," but other cards/carriers should still use the regular "402AQP3D0" version.

Configuration Files

Internal only. See How to configure a UNAVCO LAN-Cell 2 modem.

Network notes

  • Proxicast modems obtain a new IP address on a daily basis. The initial configuration containing the name of the dhcp server from which the modem obtains its IP must be configured correctly. If the modem loses this DNS address for any reason, all communications to the modem will cease to exist and a site visit will be required.
