How do we configure the Simcom SIM7100, SIM7500 and SIM7600 series cellular modules for usage in Windows 8 and 10 systems and support Windows built-in connection manager?
The Simcom modules comes default set in a USB configuration used by Linux and Windows 7 systems. If you want the module to be fully supported in Windows 8, 8.1, 10 systems and later and take advantage of the Windows integrated connection manager you have to do a one time configuration and set the module to expose Mobile Broadband Interface Model (MBIM) interface as bellow:
Start by installing the latest Simcom SIM7 series Windows drivers (instructions included in download package). They can be found on on our dedicated product web pages.
In Windows device manager you can now find a serial interface called "SimTech HS-USB AT Port 9001 (COM5)" Memorize the COM* interface number in your system.
Open a command prompt with admin rights (right click Windows icon in bottom left corner). Copy and paste the command bellow, edit port number to match the one in your system and hit enter. The command will then be sent to module overt the serial interface.
ECHO AT+CUSBPIDSWITCH=9004,1,1 >\\.\COM5
If the command is received successfully by module, a restart of the cellular module will be performed and it appears with the new USB endpoints supporting Windows 8 systems and later.
Make sure that all Simcom module end points are correctly loaded in Windows device manager, a system restart might be necessary also.
By clicking the Windows network connection symbol in the start bar or navigating to the "Cellular" topic in Windows system settings you can now activate the connection and configure APN details and enter PIN code if it is necessary for the cellular connection and subscription you have.
How can I enable DC voltage output for active GPS/GNSS antennas on modules that support this feature?
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:
For Sierra Wireless MC73 series:
For Simcom SIM7100, SIM7500, SIM7600 and SIM7600 -H series:
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?
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:
Sierra Wireless EM73xx, MC73xx series module:
Simcom SIM7xxx series modules:
ZTE Welink ME3630 series:
Telit LE910x V2:
On Huawei modules the USB mode changing is done automatically by the Windows drivers and otherwise defaults to the modules standard endpoint interfaces.
How to collect initial diagnostics data and logs for Simcom cellular modules, needed when requesting Techship technical support?
In order to troubleshoot and solve a technical problem, we ask you to please provide information about your system and logs from the related Simcom 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:
-SKU/BOM or P/N code
(For RMA returns the IMEI number is mandatory)
If you are running on a Linux based system, please capture the terminal logs bellow:
ls -l /dev/serial/by-id
ls -l /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices
The logs from the cellular module firmware can be acquired by accessing the USB enumerated serial (COM) interfaces accepting AT commands. They can be named modem, AT, PC UI etc. (In Windows device manager, found under modem or serial interfaces). Send the following AT commands bellow to module and capture the output and include them when creating the the technical support ticket.

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