Machine Connect devices require external antennas to operate properly. For applications with low bandwidth requirements, in areas with solid 4G coverage one antenna (primary) is sufficient. For all other applications, two antennas (primary and secondary) are required.

To connect Machine Connect to 4G network

AT%CMATT=1      // attach to the eNodeB and register on the network

AT%DPDNACT=1 // enable the data-plane

To disconnect Machine Connect from 4G network

AT%DPDNACT=0 // disable the data-plane

If AT%DPDNACT=1 command results in ERROR, it most likely indicates problems with SIM card activation. Please call your Verizon account manager to fix activation issues.
