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).

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
