Question

How to set up a simple data connection over Qualcomm QMI interface using libqmi and driver qmi_wwan in Linux?

Solution

Several cellular modules based on Qualcomm chipsets implements the Qualcomm MSM QMI RMNET Interface.
There is a open source Linux in-kernel driver supporting this interface called qmi_wwan. The helper library libqmi can be used to communicate with the cellular devices over the interface and do cellular module configurations to control and trigger the data connection over the cellular network.

Install the libqmi Linux library using e.g. your OS package manager like apt etc.
(Check out the official libqmi page here: https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/libqmi/)
Please be aware that libqmi is a 3rd party software not distributed by the chipset or module vendors. So full compatibility on all available commands should not be expected.
There are Qualcomm chipset standard QMI commands and in addition vendors specific custom QMI commands not supported by all manufacturers, but still available in libqmi. There are also new QMI commands not supported in older chipsets and vice versa, old QMI commands no longer supported in new chipset series.

Verify that you have the Linux in-kernel qmi_wwan driver installed and loaded for the cellular modules QMI interface endpoint over USB:
lsusb -t

Can look like this:
...
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 2, Class=Vendor Specific Class, Driver=qmi_wwan, 480M
...

If the driver is not loaded correctly, please verify that the cellular module is set to expose QMI RMNET network interface endpoint in its configuration. How to do so can often be found in AT commands guides, Linux implementation guides and similar from the cellular module vendors.

Libqmi library include a command line tool qmicli that can be used in a more convenient way communicate directly with the module over QMI interface for testing, scripting and troubleshooting.

The qmicli help will output information about all commands available:
qmicli --help-all

The qmi_wwan network control interfaces for modules are usually named like cdc-wdm# under /dev/ path.
Use the attribute --device or -d to specify it for qmicli in your command execution:
qmicli --device=/dev/cdc-wdm0
qmicli -d /dev/cdc-wdm0

In order to ease usage of the QMI interface and handle parallell command requests, libqmi include a proxy function to handle it correctly on the QMI interface, To use it, make sure to have the the attribute present in the qmicli command:
-p
--device-open-proxy

Example commands on how to communicate
Request module manufacturer:
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --dms-get-manufacturer

Get module model:
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --dms-get-model

Get firmware version:
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --dms-get-revision

Get module IDs (IMEI etc.):
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --dms-get-ids

Get SIM card status:
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --uim-get-card-status

The script qmi-network can be used to establish a simple data connection, it will automatically try to verify the IP framing type match them correctly between qmi_wwan driver and module (Raw-IP vs. 802.3 IP framing).

Create a config file containing your network operator APN details and if needed, the username and password.
Save it e.g. in the default location /etc/qmi-network.conf
The parameter --profile=[PATH] can be used to define the path to config when executing qmi-network.

Example config file content: APN details and enabling of proxy usage.
Add the username and password lines if it is needed for your APN:
APN=my-network-operators-apn
APN_USER=my-apn-username
APN_PASS=my-apn-password
PROXY=yes

Once the APN information is saved, you can start the network connection with the command:
qmi-network /dev/cdc-wdm0 start

The name of the related network interface in the Linux system can be acquired with the command:
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --get-wwan-iface

Once you see "Network started successfully" message, you can send a DHCP request on the network interface.
Please note that not all DHCP clients in Linux can handle Raw-IP format but udhcpc support it.
udhcpc -q -f -i wwan0

The IP information from the cellular network can also be acquired and set manually to the network interface by the user or scripting, the correct address details can be acquired from the cellular module over QMI with command:
qmicli -p -d /dev/cdc-wdm0 --wds-get-current-settings

If the connection was successfully set up and established, you now have a data connection. Ping request to a remote server using the cellular network interface can prove this:
ping -I wwan0 8.8.8.8

The ifconfig Linux tool can show the current details for the network interface:
ifconfig wwan0

To bring down and stop the cellular network connection, please use the stop command bellow:
qmi-network /dev/cdc-wdm0 stop

The ModemManager tool for Linux is based on libqmi. NetworkManager and ModemManager . Please note however that these two tools expect the cellular module interfaces to only be used by them so if you manually want to use the libqmi library or AT commands interfaces, please turn off/disable ModemManager and NetworkManager first.

The libqmi is a generic open source library for Linux systems and QMI protocol from Qualcomm, therefor there are several commands only working on selected devices and not necessarily on supported in the specific device you use, resulting in an error message.

Question

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

Solution

In order to ease the troubleshooting of technical problems and understand your end-product or application and its usage scenario we ask you to please provide the following information when creating a technical support ticket at: techship.com/technical_support/

Please give a detailed problem description and in what precise circumstances it is present.

Describe the host system:
-Hardware (system board, processor architecture, other peripheral devices...)
-Operating system with detailed versions (E.g. Windows version and build, Linux distribution, kernel version)
-Drivers used and versions (Linux: out-of-tree vendor drivers or in-kernel drivers?)

Details from the cellular module label:
-Model
-SKU/BOM or P/N code
IMEI number

For Linux systems, capture terminal logs from commands:
uname -a
lsusb
lsusb -t
ifconfig -a
ls -l /dev/serial/by-id
ls -l /sys/bus/usb-serial/devices
dmesg

The cellular module logs can be acquired by accessing one of the USB enumerated serial (COM) interfaces or physical UART serial interfaces accepting AT commands. In Windows device manager they are generally found as modem infterface or serial and ports interface types).
