The Oyster Edge is a highly configurable device. Many parameter options are available so that setup can be tailored to suit specific use cases, or enable features.
For many use cases, the defaults are a great starting point, but there are a few parameters which users should pay attention to and configure in order to optimise the performance and battery life of the device.
For optimal battery life, it is important to set the network profile in admin parameters.
The network profile sets the LTE-M and NB-IoT bandmasks on the device. Most networks only use at most a few bands. Setting the bandmasks means when trying to connect to the network, the device will only scan these bands, rather than all possible bands - saving a lot of energy.
See Setting the Network Profile - LTE-M/NB-IoT devices for instructions on how to set the profile, and create a template to apply to all devices.
If you are unsure on which profile to set, contact support.
Additionally, partners should consider using the Wi-Fi Value tier of lookups to save on lookup costs.
