The Wavecom Fastrack Supreme (now replaced by the Sierra Wireless Fastrack Xtend) is a GSM modem with a serial port, an external antenna connection and an external power supply. Like any serial port GSM modem, setting the device up is easy. Just connect the antenna, power supply and insert the SIM card. An often overlooked part of the Fastrack Supreme is the small black slider in front of the SIM card slot that locks the SIM card. Without this lock the modem does not load the SIM card. The Fastrack Supreme is connected to the ATC-1000 with a normal 9-pin serial port cable.

Since the GSM modem could be located literally on the other side of the world, it is not possible to use the Search button to let the GSM Modem Gateway the modem automatically. Instead, the TCP/IP connection is selected from the GSM modem port list and the Host name/IP number and port number of the ATC-1000 is entered manually.
The Test button confirms that the ATC-1000 is set up at the entered IP number and port and that the Wavecom Fastrack Supreme is found and connected to the mobile network.
