Article Number: 10275
Manufacturer: Huawei
Supplier number: 55010261

ME909s-821 is the first LTE cat4 module based on Hi-Silicon chipset. Which is high-quality designed LTE module in small size and Huawei standard LGA form factor, especially for industrial-grade M2M applications such as vehicle telematics, tracking, mobile payment, industrial router, safety monitor and industrial PDAs.

ME909s-821 supports 150Mbps downlink data rate, including enhanced features like FOTA, USSD and Huawei enhanced AT commands.

ME909s-821 supports China region LTE Bands including both FDD-LTE & TDD-LTE, and has two different form factor: LGA and Mini PCIe form factor.

With Huawei pin-to-pin form factor, it is easy to migrate from MU609, MU709 or ME909u family to ME909s-821.

The Ulog is a log capturing tool for all Huawei modules.

It can work on PCs and various embedded platforms, and supports different operating systems (OS), such as Windows 7, Linux, and Android.
For Windows there's a graphical user interface available. In order to capture logs with Ulog the modules unique shell lock code need to be acquired based on the IMEI.

Question

How to access the serial AT command interfaces for Huawei HiSilicon chipset based modules in systems with Windows 8 and later?

Solution

Serial interfaces for cellular modules are recommended to be disabled by default by Microsoft for systems running Windows 8 and later.

The serial interfaces for AT commands etc. can however be exposed again by first using the tool in linked archive: "Huawei AT commands over MBIM interface tool for Windows 8-10 systems and usage guide" and send module the command bellow once (stored in module memory):
AT^SETMODE=1
(instead of the default value AT^SETMODE=0)
The module will now reboot and new end-points will be visible for the module once re-appearing.

By installing the linked drivers: "Huawei Debug Driver V.2.0.6.1 for HiSilicon" the correct end point drivers can also be loaded for the cellular module when used in this mode.

You should now be able to find AT commands accepting serial interface as following:
Huawei ME909s, and ME906s series:
HUAWEI Mobile Connect - PC UI Interface

Question

How to change USB composition mode to Mobile Broadband Interface (MBIM) that is used by Windows 8 and 10 systems for data connectivity and enabling support for the built-in connection manager in Windows?

Solution

This is done by sending AT commands to the Modem or AT serial interfaces that are accepting AT commands and changing the USB endpoint composition:

Sierra Wireless EM74xx, MC74xx series module:
AT!ENTERCND=”A710”
AT!USBCOMP=1,1,100D
AT!RESET

Sierra Wireless EM73xx, MC73xx series module:
AT!ENTERCND=”A710”
AT!UDUSBCOMP=8
AT!RESET

Simcom SIM7xxx series modules:
AT+CUSBPIDSWITCH=9003,1,1
AT+CRESET

ZTE Welink ME3630 series:
AT+ZSWITCH=8
AT+ZRST

Telit LM940:
AT#USBCFG=2
AT#REBOOT

Telit LE910x V2:
AT#USBCFG=3
AT#REBOOT

On Huawei modules the USB mode changing is done automatically by the Windows drivers and otherwise defaults to the modules standard endpoint interfaces.

Question

How to collect initial diagnostics data and logs for Huawei cellular modules needed when requesting Techship technical support?

Solution

In order to troubleshoot and solve a technical problem, we ask you to please provide information about your system and logs from the related Huawei module when creating a technical support ticket.

Problem description of what exact problem is and in what precise situations present

Describe the host system:
-Hardware (system board, peripherals...)
-Operating system and detailed versions (E.g. Windows, Linux release, kernel...)
-Drivers and driver versions

Identify the precise details of cellular module found on label:
-Model
-SKU/BOM or P/N code
(For RMA returns the IMEI number is required also)

If you are running on a Linux based system, please capture the terminal logs bellow:
uname -a
lsusb
lsusb -t
ifconfig -a
ls -l /dev/serial/by-id
ls -l /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices
dmesg

The logs from module firmware can be acquired by accessing one of the USB enumerated serial (COM) interfaces accepting AT commands. (In Windows this is the PC UI serial interface). Send the following commands to module and capture the text output and include them when creating the the technical support ticket.
ATI
ATE1
AT+CMEE=2
AT+CFUN?
AT+CPIN?
AT^SYSINFOEX
AT^SYSCFGEX?
AT^HCSQ?
AT+CREG?
AT+CGREG?
AT+CEREG?
AT+COPS?
AT+CGDCONT?
AT^AUTHDATA?
AT+CGCONTRDP
AT+CGPADDR
AT+CGATT?
AT+CGACT?
AT^NDISDUP?
AT^NDISSTATQRY?
AT^DHCP?
AT^DHCPV6?

AT^CHIPTEMP?
AT^THERMFUN?
AT^FOTAMODE?

The support ticket can be created after login at: https://techship.com/technical_support/

Question

How can we establish data connection for cellular modules in Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems?

Solution

Microsoft Windows desktop versions starting from Windows 8 and newer have built in data connection manager for WWAN, Wifi etc. that can be used to configure, control and establish the data connection of cellular module that support MBIM interface, which most cellular modules do.

The connection managers settings and controls can be found and accessed on Windows desktop start menu through the network icon (see picture).

The Cellular tab can be found in Windows system settings and if needed the connection APN details can be manually entered through "Advanced options".

Question

Why is there no serial interface for AT-commands available in Microsoft Windows 8/10 and newer, while in Windows 7 all the traditional module serial interfaces are available?

Solution

Microsoft demands cellular module vendors to use the Mobile Broadband Interface Model (MBIM) interface for signaling in newer operating systems like Windows 8 and 10 rather than the previous serial based control channels with AT commands.

The serial ports are phased out and enumeration in the host system of these are dropped by many manufacturers because of Microsofts requirements.

The connections can be controlled graphically in Windows by the systems built in connection manager as well as by commands in the command prompt starting with: netsh mbn

Microsoft: Overview of mobile broadband

Question

How can we use the Huawei ME909s series modules with dual Ethernet interfaces and separate APNs in parallel?

Solution

The Huawei ME909s series modules can now support dual APN and dual ECM network interfaces starting from firmware version 11.617.06.00.00.

This gives the host systems the ability to separate the IP traffic for dedicated services or use cases.
A SIM subscription supporting separate active APN connections in parallel is also required.

Usage instructions:
Activate the second USB CDC ECM network interface with the following AT command:
AT^SETETHNUM=2

The interface connections are established with the following AT commands:
AT^NDISDUP=1,1,"< APN1 >"
AT^NDISDUP=2,1,"< APN2 >"

Please observe that this feature is only supported by the Linux systems and drivers currently.
