Determining the Serial Number and Phone Number of a Globalstar Data Terminal
The Globalstar Hex ESN is available via the AT+GSN command. There is a 1:1 correlation between the Globalstar ESN and the MDN (i.e., phone number).
- Although there are no AT commands which provide the MDN of a Globalstar data device, the user already knows all the Globalstar phones and modems that he owns, and can easily correlate the ESN of the Globalstar device to the phone number.
- We recommend that manufacturers of remote data communication systems should incorporate the AT+GSN into their modem bootup initialization script. That way, if and when the manufacturer needs to troubleshoot a difficult problem and is reviewing lots of log files from different modems, each of which may look very similar, the AT+GSN information will make it very easy to correlate each particular log file with the unit that generated the log file.
