Accelerate3g5 -- andreas¶
Summary and Ideas¶Main goal is testing the 3g network based on free software and a nano3G femotcell with different test devices (TD)
- TD1: Acer Liquid M330, Dual-SIM Windows Phone E3336 with Windows10 Mobile
- TD2: LG G3 LG-D855 android Phone with Android 7.1.1 (LineageOS 14.1 nightly build)
- TD3: Samsung Galaxy Tab2 10.1 GT-P5100 with Android 4.4.4 (CyanogenMod 11 nightly build)
- TD4: Huawei HSPA+ USB stick E1823 (used mainly with debian8)
Another aim is to extend the documentation to help users with little or no experiences with UMTS-networks.
2017-03-08 The nano3G femotcell arrived.
2017-03-13 Software is running. First successful registration of TD2 and TD3
2017-03-19 Successfully tested voice-calls and sending SMS between TD1, TD2, TD32017-03-26 TD1, TD2 and TD3 have internet-connection via HSDPA.
Results of browser-based internet speedtests of devices connected to the nano3G with an internet connection of 250 Mbit/s down and 20 MBit/s upstream:
- TD1: 5852 kbit/s downstream and 488 kbit/s upstream
- TD2: 6430 kbit/s down- and 481 kbit/s upstream.
2017-03-31 First tests with TD4 and wvdial/pppd: Connection worked, but Modem hangup after CHAP-authentification
2017-04-01 Using the latest sources from git with TD4 the pppd now gets an IP-address.
2017-04-08 After changing the [[https://osmocom.org/attachments/download/2601/wvdial.conf]][] to force the Huawei E1823 to register on the network, with "AT+CREG"-command, the IP-connection via pppd is working now.
Problems, issues, topics which came up during the setup of the nano3G, configuration of the software and running the 3G-network.
- SIM / USIM
Q: Is it possible to use a USIM-card from a commercial provider?
A: No, you need to know the Ki-key which cannot be read from the USIM-card.
Q: Is it possible to use a SIM-card?
A: No, only USIM-cards work with the 3G-network.
