     umsm -- Qualcomm MSM modem	device

     umsm* at uhub?
     ucom* at umsm?

     The umsm driver supports Qualcomm MSM modem adapters.  The	MSM chipset is
     found in EVDO, UMTS and LTE capable modems.  Typically these are CardBus
     and PCI Express Mini Cards	that incorporate a USB controller with the ac-
     tual device attached to it.

     The following devices are known to	work with the umsm driver:

     Some modems have multiple serial ports, however almost all	modems have
     only one effective	serial port for	PPP connections.  For example, the
     Huawei E220 has two serial	ports, but only	the first port can be used to
     make connections; the second one is for management.  The Option Globe-
     Trotter HSDPA/HSUPA modems	have three serial ports, but only the last
     port can be used to make PPP connections.	The Medion Mobile S4222	has
     four serial ports,	but only the first port	can be used to make connec-

     Some modems require multi-link PPP	operation.  For	example, the Huawei
     E1550 has four serial ports.  When	initiating a connection, the control
     commands have to be issued	on the third port, and after that the actual
     PPP connection comes up on	the first port.	 The function of the second
     and fourth	ports is unknown.

     An	example	demand dial configuration for Cingular Wireless	using pppd(8):


	   TIMEOUT 10
	   '' ATZ OK AT&F OK
	   AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","isp.cingular" OK
	   ATD*99***1# CONNECT


	   active-filter 'not udp port 123'
	   idle	600
	   connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/cingular-chat"


	   # Secrets for authentication	using CHAP
	   # client		   server  secret	   IP addresses	   *	   CINGULAR1

     pppd(8) is	then started using:

	   # pppd call ac875

     ucom(4), uhub(4), usb(4), pppd(8)

     The umsm device driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.0.

     The umsm driver was written by Jonathan Gray <> and	Yojiro
     UO	<>.

     For Verizon Wireless (and possibly	other services), cards require a one-
     time activation before they will work; umsm does not currently support

     The additional IEEE 802.11	wireless chipset found in the Option Globe-
     Trotter GT	FUSION is not yet supported.
