nRF9160 Cat-M1, NB-IoT

Super SIM does not support NB-IoT.


The recommended initialization steps for the nRF9160 are:

  1. Set the APN: AT+CGDCONT=0,"IP","super" .
  2. Set the LTE system mode. The nRF9160 can only support one LTE system mode, either Cat-M1 or NB-IoT, at a time. Super SIM only supports Cat-M1, which is the default. If your module's configuration has been changed, please reset it by issuing AT%XSYSTEMMODE=1,0,1,0 .

Built-in network protocols

The nRF9160 doesn't support any of the usual AT commands for testing HTTP or sending pings. Please see Nordic's documentation(link takes you to an external page) to help you integrate this module into your product.

Low-power modes

Using these features, but especially PSM, can make the modem inaccessible to the terminal during its sleep time. It's best to experiment with these features locally. To disable all power saving, send:


You can learn more about implementing these modes in our low-power usage documentation.
