How to set up a simple data connection over the MBIM interface using libmbim and driver cdc_mbim in Linux?
Most 4G/LTE cellular modules implements the USB Implementers Forums Mobile Broadband Interface Model (MBIM) Interface. This because Microsoft request cellular module vendors to include the MBIM interface for good compatibility with Windows 8, 8.1, 10 and later systems. The Windows built-in connection manager also rely on MBIM interface for control of the cellular modules.
There is a open source Linux in-kernel driver supporting MBIM interface and it is called cdc_mbim. The library libmbim can be used to communicate with the cellular devices over the interface and do necessary configurations to trigger the data connection over the cellular network.
First install the libmbim Linux library using your system package manager like apt etc. (more details about libmbim here: https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/libmbim/)
Please relate to the FAQ bellow regarding how to set the cellular module into correct USB mode for usage with MBIM mode:
How to change USB composition mode to MBIM in cellular module, used by Windows 8 and 10 systems for data connectivity?
Verify that you have the Linux in-kernel cdc_mbim driver installed for the cellular modules exposed MBIM interface endpoint over USB:
Can look e.g. like this:
|__ Port 1: Dev 12, If 12, Class=Communications, Driver=cdc_mbim, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 12, If 13, Class=CDC Data, Driver=cdc_mbim, 480M
Using libmbim with the command line interface mbimcli:
List all available options for mbimcli:
The cellular modules mbim interface is usually named cdc-wdm* among the devices. For mbimcli this is defined by --device=/dev/cdc-wdm0 parameter. You should also use the proxy function to enable parallel commands to be sent to module even if the interface already is in use by a data connection. This is done by including --device-open-proxy or -p in every mbimcli requst to module.
Command example to query device capabilities and information (firmware & IMEI code etc.):
mbimcli --device=/dev/cdc-wdm0 --device-open-proxy --query-device-caps
The libmbim tool: mbim-network can be used to establish a simple data connection.
First create a config file containing your network operators APN details. Save it in the default location where mbim-network searches for the file: /etc/mbim-network.conf . The parameter --profile=[PATH] can be used to alter this path when executing mbim-network.
Save the APN details, (and username, password and authentication type if necessary) into the configuration file /etc/mbim-network.conf:
If the APN requires a username and password then it is also required to fill in the APN_AUTH protocol type with either PAP, CHAP or MSCHAPV2.
How to start a data connection after configuration file is in place:
Enter SIM PIN (if necessary for SIM card):
mbimcli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 -p --enter-pin=1234
Start the mbim data connection with command bellow, if successful it will print "Network started successfully"
mbim-network /dev/cdc-wdm0 start
You can now execute the mbim-set-ip script (download found bellow related to this FAQ) with sufficient system privileges:
./mbim-set-ip /dev/cdc-wdm0 wwan0
This script will collect the network interface IP configurations from the cellular module over MBIM interface using mbimcli, parse them and apply them to the network interface in Linux, this because DHCP requests are generally not supported over MBIM interfaces.
Once you have started the data connection and set the details with the mbim-set-ip script you should be able to ping the data connection:
IPv4 ping: (only supported if IPv4 address was acquired from cellular module)
ping -4 -I wwan0 18.104.22.168
ping -4 -I wwan0 google.com
IPv6 ping: (only supported if IPv6 address was acquired from cellular module)
ping -6 -I wwan0 2001:4860:4860::8888
ping -6 -I wwan0 google.com
The cellular data connection can be disconnected by commands:
Stop mbim data connection:
mbim-network /dev/cdc-wdm0 stop
Set network interface down:
ip link set wwan0 down
Other useful commands:
Query device capabilities and information (firmware & IMEI code etc.):
mbimcli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 -p --query-device-caps
Query SIM card information:
mbimcli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 -p --query-subscriber-ready-status
Query network registration state:
mbimcli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 -p --query-registration-state
Query connection ip information:
mbimcli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 -p --query-ip-configuration=0
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 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".
