Quick Start Guide
What's in the Box
Digi 1003-CM CORE modem
Note The CORE modem included in your box may be branded for Digi Accelerated rather than for Digi.
Cellular Antennas (4)
Power Supply Unit
Temporary Battery Pack
1 x 18 inch
1 x 156 inch
CORE modem cover plate
Passive power-over-Ethernet injector
CM unit anchor screws
Ceiling rail clips
Drywall anchors (2)
Activate that SIM Card on your preferred AT&T Wireless plan.
Swap the inactive SIM with an activated SIM card.
AND / OR
Add a secondary active SIM card in SIM2 that can be used as an alternative connection.
Insert the CORE modem into the EX15 by aligning the white clip. Press the modem in and then push the white clip in until it locks firmly in place.
Secure the CORE modemwith one of the CM unit anchor screws.
Cover the installed CORE modem with the cover plate. The cover plate will snap into place.
Carefully attach the 4 antennas and note there is limited clearance so leave them straight until they are all attached. Once the antennas are attached spread them apart from each other as much as possible to limit interference. Please note you may need to overturn the antenna once to get it to stay in position.
If you intend to configure Ethernet WAN access, use an Ethernet cable to connect the EX15's 2/WAN port to a device with access to the Internet.
To provide LAN connectivity from the EX15 use an Ethernet cable to connect the EX15 1/PoE port to your primary router, SD-WAN, Firewall or PC.
Connect the DC Power or use the included PoE injector to connect power through the 1/PoE Ethernet port (this is especially helpful to capture better signal strength outside of the equipment room).
Verify that the signal strength indicator on the front of the EX15 shows 2 or more bars, and that the LTE LED on the front of the EX15 shows either green or blue (solid or flashing) for proper operation.
Note: The flashing LTE light means the 1/PoE port does not have an Ethernet connection and will need to be addressed for proper operation.
Most of the time an active SIM card can be used to connect the device to the Internet and pull down the device’s configuration from ARMT. If there is a custom APN or no SIM card available, an Internet Ethernet connection (with DHCP) can be used to connect the EX15 2/WAN port to pull down the device configuration (a great staging option).
If you want to configure the EX15 in the local GUI, connect a PC to the 1/PoE port and go to http://192.168.201.1 and log into the EX155 with the user name admin and the password printed on the bottom of the label (please note that if the device has already been configured a new password may have been applied).
Ethernet port default configuration
- Port 1 is configured as a LAN port and will issue a single passthrough IP Address using DHCP based on the IP received from the cellular connection
Note: By default, the EX15 device is in cellular passthrough mode. This prevents clients that attach to the device's LAN port from using the device's WAN internet connection. See Enable router mode for instructions regarding how to configure the EX15 device to provide internet connectivity to more than one connected device at a time.
- Port 2 is configured as a WAN port and will accept an IP Address from an existing local network router.
