GPS receivers of Sierra Wireless AirPrime modules can be connected to a passive antenna (which should be physically located very close to the unit) or a remote active antenna containing an LNA, which will both improve SNR and compensate for any cable/insertion losses.
This application note describes the use of the integrated GPS active antenna powering function when available, and how to design an external powering circuit where required.

This application note details how to setup a Rhode & Schwartz CMW500 platform in order to test the Sierra Wireless MC7304 throughput capabilities within the supported RF bands and MIMO capabilities (this application note is also applicable to all other variants of the MC73xx).

The following is also discussed:
Basic IP throughput description.
Explanation of the test results and its useful application for both TCP and UDP.
Overview and introduction to the “iPerf” tool.
Throughput results are achievable with the MC7304.
The document focusses on IPV4 configuration, however this can be extended to IPV6 with proper overhead computation (see “6.2.5 MTU and Protocol Overhead: Maximum Segment Size (MSS)” for details).

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 for Sierra Wireless EM/MC73 series cellular modules when requesting 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 module when creating a technical support ticket.

Please provide a problem description of what exact problem is and in what precise situations it is present.

Describe the host system:
-Hardware (system board, peripherals...)
-Operating system and detailed versions (E.g. Windows, Linux dist, 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 generally modem devices or AT commands serial interfaces). Send the following AT commands to module and capture the text output and include them when creating the the technical support ticket.

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

How can we capture DM serial port logs for Sierra Wireless EM/MC series cellular modules in Linux?

Solution

In the Sierra Wireless QMI SDK downloadable archive there is a a DM log tool in the tools folder.
Run the dmcapture.sh script with desired filter, and the ttyUSB0 (DM port) device selected.

E.g. like this:
sudo ./dmcapture.sh -l -d /dev/ttyUSB0 -o testlog -f ./filters/v11026_Generic_GSM_WCDMA_LTE_IP.sqf

This will create a log file that can be sent for analyze and debug to Sierra Wireless.

Question

How can I enable DC voltage output for active GPS/GNSS antennas on modules that support this feature?

Solution

The 3 volt DC Low Noise Amplifier voltage supply from the cellular module can be enabled according to AT commands bellow:

For Sierra Wireless EM/MC74 series:
AT!ENTERCND="A710"
AT+WANT=1

For Sierra Wireless MC73 series:
AT!ENTERCND="A710"
AT+WANTGNSSPWR=1

For Simcom SIM7100, SIM7500, SIM7600 and SIM7600 -H series:
AT+CVAUXV=3050
AT+CVAUXS=1

Question

The Sierra Wireless MC7304 shows multiple connections in Windows. I only want to use one, is there a way to turn off the other?

Solution

Sending the following AT Commands to the modules AT COM interface will change the USB profile used and the second connection interface will be disabled.

1. AT!ENTERCND=”A710”
2. AT!UDUSBCOMP=6
3. AT!RESET

Question

I want to use a specific network technique. Can I specify that with a Sierra Wireless module?

Solution

The AT command AT!SELRAT lets you specify what technique to use.

The parameters are:
00, Automatic
01, UMTS 3G Only
02, GSM 2G Only
03, Automatic
04, Automatic
05, GSM and UMTS Only
06, LTE Only
07, GSM, UMTS, LTE
