APN – Access Point Name

An Access Point Name provides routing information for SGSN (Serving GPRS Support Nodes) and GGSN (Gateway GPRS Support Nodes). The APN consists of two parts; the Network ID, which identifies the external service requested by a user of the GPRS service and the Operator ID which specifies routing information. Example: Operator ID = MNCyyyy.MCCzzzz.gprs Network ID = mpirical.net
