NetworkAccessProfile Resource


NetworkAccessProfile resources control which public land mobile networks (PLMNs) your Super SIMs can connect to:


_10
https://supersim.twilio.com/v1/NetworkAccessProfiles

A NetworkAccessProfile resource can be referenced in the API by either by its unique Sid or UniqueName:


_10
https://supersim.twilio.com/v1/NetworkAccessProfiles/{Sid}
_10
https://supersim.twilio.com/v1/NetworkAccessProfiles/{UniqueName}

Each NetworkAccessProfile (NAP) resource has a Networks subresource (NAP Networks):


_10
https://supersim.twilio.com/v1/NetworkAccessProfiles/{Sid}/Networks

Each NAP Network resource represents a cellular network that Super SIMs can connect to — an allowed Network.

The NAP Network resources in the Networks subresource will be a subset of all of the Network resources available from the main Networks resource. You can add or remove NAP Network resources from the NAP Networks subresource at any time to change which cellular networks your Super SIMs can access.

(information)

Info

The Super SIM Networks resource is a read-only resource which lists all of the cellular networks to which it is possible for Super SIMs to connect: it is a catalog of available networks for you to choose from. Once you've identified a cellular network you want to allow your Super SIMs to connect to, use its sid to add it to a NetworkAccessProfile resource's Networks subresource. See these examples to learn how to add or remove NAP Network resources.

(warning)

Warning

If your Super SIM has already attached to a network, authentication and authorization information may be cached in that network to allow devices to continue to use that network without re-authenticating. When you disable a network in a NAP, it may not take immediate effect for that Super SIM. The cached information for that Super SIM will need to expire before the Super SIM can no longer use that network. This may take up to a week, but varies by network.

To make use of a NetworkAccessProfile resource, it needs to be referenced by a Fleet resource. All of the Sim resources assigned to that Fleet will then be able to attach to the cellular networks allowed by the NetworkAccessProfile's Networks subresource. A NetworkAccessProfile can be used by multiple Fleet resources.


Forbidden networks

forbidden-networks page anchor

The Networks subresource serves as an allow list of the cellular networks to which Super SIMs can connect. Network resources not present in the Networks subresource are therefore blocked (i.e., forbidden).

When your device scans for available cellular networks to attempt to attach to, it may find a number of cellular networks. Super SIMs can only attach to a cellular network if the Network resource that represents the cellular network is present in the Networks subresource. If your device explicitly tries to attach to a cellular network that has not been allowed, the network will return the error 5004 / ROAMING_NOT_ALLOWED.

(warning)

Warning

There will be some cellular networks for which there is no Network resource available. As such there is no way to add them to the list of allowed cellular networks in a NetworkAccessProfile resource. No Super SIMs will be able to attach to these cellular networks.


New Feature Customers can now delete unused and unwanted NAPs and their associated data. This can be done in Console(link takes you to an external page): visit Internet of Things > Network access profiles(link takes you to an external page), click on the name of the NAP you wish to delete, and click the Delete NAP link at the bottom of the page. You will be asked to confirm your action before the NAP is deleted. NAPs which are currently assigned to Fleets cannot be deleted.
