Cellular connection lost after 2 to 3 days

The question as below reach me. I will quote myself.

Q: Please let me know the tips , to ensure connectivity all the time. I am loosing connectivity after 2/3 days , I need to manually reconnect by ringing the modem again as on now.

A: There are several sources for disconnect.

Chapter: AT commands and logic loops for set up a communication channel

The client (what means your IoT M2M device) has to take care on a connection to the cellular network.

Chapter: Supply voltage

“Some power supply concepts including LT Spice modules for DC/DC regulators and load generator for the 2 Ampere peak currents are a part of the book too. Be aware, that the power down reset is still the main fault in designs with cellular modules.”
