Create a data plan

You can configure a data plan on the FortiGate with the following parameters:

config extender-controller dataplan
    edit Verizon
        set modem modem1
        set type by-carrier
        set carrier Verizon
        set apn WE01.VZWSTATIC
        set auth NONE
        set user
        set pwd
        set pdn ipv4-only
        set signal-threshold 0
        set signal-period 0
        set capacity 0
        set monthly-fee 0
        set billing-date 0
        set overage disable
        set preferred-subnet 32
        set private-network disable
    next
end
Note

When "private network" is enabled, FortiExtender allows the flow of non-NATed IP traffic on to an LTE interface. Otherwise, it does not.

Parameter Description
modem Choose “modem1”, “modem2”, or “all”.
type

Choose the way for the modem to select the SIM card:

  • carrier— Assign by SIM carrier.
  • slot— Assign to SIM slot 1 or 2.
  • iccid— Assign to a specific SIM by its serial number (18 to 22 digits).
  • generic— Compatible with any SIM. Assigned if no other data plan matches the chosen SIM.
iccid The serial number of the SIM, mandatory for “set type by-iccid”.
carrier The SIM card carrier, mandatory for “set type by-carrier”.
slot The SIM card slot, mandatory for “set type by-slot”
apn The APN of the SIM card.
auth-type The Authorization mode.
username The username.

password

The password.

pdn

The Packet Data Network (PDN) IP address family.

signal-threshold

The signal-strength threshold beyond which SIM switch will occur.

Note: Enter an integer value from <50> to <100> (default = <100>).

signal-period

The length of time (from 600 to 18000 seconds) for SIM switch to occur when signal strength remains below the set signal threshold for more than half of the set period.

capacity

The data capacity per month (from 0 to 102400000 MB).

monthly-fee

The monthly fee for the data plan (from 0 to 1000000).

billing-date

The billing date of the month.

preferred-subnet

DHCP subnet.

private-network

(Enable/disable) blocking all non-NATed traffic.
