Article Number: 10251
Manufacturer: Huawei
Supplier number: 55010461

Huawei MU709s-2 mPCIe is a dual band HSPA+ module (900/2100 MHz) with an attractive price performance ratio targeted for Europe and China market. Top class performance allows data speeds up to 21 Mbit/s downlink and 5.76 Mbit/s uplink. With a temperature range between -40 - + 70 degrees Celsius it offers a wide usage range for most industrial environments. MU709 has an embedded TCP/IP stack, PCM Voice and firmware-over-the-air update features.

The Huawei MU709s-2 is the first wireless M2M module from Huawei with a Hisilicon chipset and the MU709 is pin-pin compatible with MU609 and ME909.

This is the mini PCIe version of the MU709s-2 module. For the LGA form factor please refer to article 10250 MU709s-2 LGA.

To develop applications and to test the mPCIe module separately the article 10069 Techship MiniPCIe Developer Kit incl. Technical support could be very helpful.

Question

How to activate the data connection for Huawei cellular modules over the USB network interface in Linux?

Solution

The first step is to assure that the Huawei cellular module is properly loaded in the Linux system. Huawei modules are most often automatically detected in recent Linux kernels, this can be verified in different ways by commands bellow:

The lsusb command shows what physical USB devices are detected in the Linux operating system:
lsusb
root@support-up2:~# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 12d1:1f1a Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.

The lsusb -t command shows the USB endpoints exposed by the detected USB devices and the related drivers loaded for them:
lsusb -t
...
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 0, Class=Communications, Driver=cdc_ether, 480M
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 1, Class=CDC Data, Driver=cdc_ether, 480M
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 2, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 3, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 4, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 5, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M
|__ Port 4: Dev 5, If 6, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=option, 480M


The dmesg lists all the driver loading logs since system boot up:

usb 1-4: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB4

Enable the USB network interface in Linux host:
ip link set dev usb0 up

The command ifconfig list all network interfaces loaded in the Linux system, the cellular module interface can be named differently depending on the distribution used but generally named usb0, wwan0 etc. initially.
ifconfig usb0
usb0: flags=4163 mtu 1500
inet6 2a02:aa1:1601:d0da:1e:10ff:fe1f:0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x0

RX packets 120 bytes 6335 (6.3 KB)
RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0
TX packets 11 bytes 946 (946.0 B)
TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0

the command ls can list the USB serial interfaces detected:
ls /dev/ttyUSB*
/dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyUSB1 /dev/ttyUSB2 /dev/ttyUSB3 /dev/ttyUSB4

Once this far we can now start communicate with the cellular module over AT commands. There are different applications available in Linux that enables manual communication with serial interfaces:

minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB2
socat - /dev/ttyUSB2,crnl
etc.

Try writing to the modem/AT serial interface initially the command "AT" it should return you OK:
AT
OK

Enable input command echo:
ATE1
OK

Print general information about cellular module

Activate the data connection over for the network interface visible to host system using APN profile 1 previously created.
AT^NDISDUP=1,1,
OK

^NDISSTAT: 1,,,"IPV4"

^NDISSTAT: 1,,,"IPV6"

Once ^NDISSTAT:1,,,"IPV4" or (^NDISSTAT: 1,,,"IPV6" or if IPv6) is returned it indicates that you now have a active data connection to the network operator over either IPv4 or IPv6 or both.

You can then use a DHCP client in your host system to request the IP address from the cellular network:
dhclient -v usb0

DHCPACK of 2.69.217.204 from 2.69.217.201
bound to 2.69.217.204 -- renewal in 244094 seconds.

You now have a working cellular network data connection in your Linux system.

It can be tested e.g. by using ping over the specific network interface:
ping -4 -I usb0 www.google.com
PING www.google.com (74.125.131.147) from 2.69.217.204 usb0: 56(84) bytes of data.

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 49.486/67.774/115.379/27.544 ms

This is the basic way of bringing up the network interface. Additional checks and probing should be added in the control software or script if the process is to be automated. For scripting e.g. Python or other language can be used to setup the connection.

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

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
