What is APN settings?

Let us explain to you ‘what is APN’ in mobile phone. The term APN itself stands for access point name. In layman terms, it primarily acts as a gateway between the cellular network of your smartphone device and the internet. Therefore, whatever your network maybe – 3G, 4G, 5G, the APN is needed to establish the connection. It acts as your digital gateway to the world of internet.

It is APN that determines your connection requests and defines it. Whenever you port to a different internet service provider, your APN ends up getting changed at the same time as well.

How to get Airtel access point name?

Getting an Airtel access point name is easier than you might be thinking. All you have to do is take an Airtel SIM, push it into a smartphone and voila! The moment you switch on the mobile data on the device, you are using an APN to connect to the internet. Now isn’t that quite simple and easy to understand? We certainly think so.

However, there can be instances when the new SIM inserted into the smartphone does not allow the APN to be changed. But, there is a way around that as well. If you have an Android device with you, you can just go ahead and create an APN for yourself.

The structure of APN settings

In itself, the APN has two primary parts that make it complete: a network identifier and an operator identifier. Here, the network identifier tells you which outside network the gateway should be connected to. On the other hand, the operator identifier plays its part by identifying which mobile network operator the gateway has been paired with.

Every APN usually ends with a ‘.3gprs’ or something like ‘.3gppnetwork.org’. We hope this has cleared the idea for you a bit. Now, let us look at the Airtel access point settings and Airtel access point names.
