Frequently Asked Questions

Number of FAQs related to Cellular Data Services: 12

Expand AllCollapse All

  1. Contact Campbell Scientific Customer Service for assistance. Each subscription is prepaid for a year of service. Refunds are not available for early cancellations.

  2. Yes. While subscription terms are annual, the quantity of the data service on the order can be adjusted to indicate the number of years that are to be prepaid.

  3. A line of service can be suspended for up to 90 days. Contact Campbell Scientific Customer Service for assistance.

  4. On our website, log in to your account and select the Cellular Data Subscriptions option listed under Orders and Tools. This page will show your data use, modem status on the carrier, and other information.

    If you would like to give others access to this information, they need to create their own user account (an option on the Account Login page). Then share with them the modem phone number, which is also called the MSISDN number. After they log in, have them select the Cellular Data Subscriptions option listed under Orders and Tools and then the Linked Subscriptions tab. From there, they enter the modem phone number, and then they will then be able to view the information they need.

  5. Each data plan has a monthly limit. Data use is logged each day. When more than one line of service has the same data plan, the data allotment is pooled for use by all lines on the same plan. If the modem data use exceeds the plan limit for a month, an email will be sent to notify the customer contact. When overage charges beyond the pool limit reach $50.00, customers will be notified and billed. Data overage charges are billed at the following rate: $1.00/MB or $0.10/MB for 250 MB+ domestic plans. For more information, see Cellular Data Service Plan Terms and Conditions and Customer Agreement.

  6. We have access to over 600 cellular carriers in 185 countries. If the country where you need service is not on the Country List for Cellular Plans, contact Campbell Scientific Customer Service for a quote. We need to know the country and expected monthly data use.

  7. Yes, for RV50 modems. Place an order for CELLPROV with the desired carrier and data plan. Complete the Cellular Data Service Provisioning Order form, making sure to include the modem model number, serial number, and IMEI number. An activated SIM will be shipped to you complete with instructions to install the SIM and to program the modem.

  8. Campbell Scientific cellular data plans provide a private dynamic IP address. With a dynamic IP address, a data logger can connect to the Internet and push data or emails to a programmed location. However, because the modem is using a dynamic (changing) address within a private network, you cannot initiate communication with the data logger without the help of a routing service. Campbell Scientific offers the Konect PakBus Router service to enable this two-way communication between Campbell Scientific support software and the data logger. When you purchase a cellular-enabled device from Campbell Scientific, Inc., a complimentary subscription to the Konect PakBus Router is included with your purchase.

  9. The duration of a subscription is typically one year, beginning 10 days from the provisioning date. Service suspensions or multi-year subscriptions will affect the renewal date. Sixty days before a subscription expires, Campbell Scientific will send the customer contact a renewal notice via email with a link to the online renewal center on the Your Account page. From there, customers can renew the subscription and select a method of payment. Customers can renew their subscription at any time and can pay for up to five years of service.  

  10. Requests for cellular data service for cellular-enabled devices not purchased from Campbell Scientific must be reviewed and approved to ensure they meet the requirements for use on the cellular data network. Contact Campbell Scientific Customer Service for assistance. You will need the modem model number, IMEI number, model of the Campbell Scientific data logger and serial number, number of modems, and desired carrier and data plan.
