Describe your service in the Mobile Broadband Metadata Authoring Wizard

You can provide descriptive information about your service in Windows, such as model name and manufacturer.

To provide descriptive information about a service

  1. Click the Description tab.
  2. Fill out the following fields.

    • Service Name. This optional field isn't used in Windows 8.
    • Service Provider. The operator name that appears in Windows Connection Manager.
    • Service Number. Specify a GUID that uniquely identifies your service. This GUID is used to identify the operator when using operator XML provisioning. If you update the device metadata package, this GUID should remain the same. Note This is a different value than the Experience ID and the file name of the device metadata package. For more information on selecting a GUID for Service Number, see Guide to Providing Mobile Broadband Metadata.
