Important Notice
Because of the nature of wireless communications, trans­
mission and reception of data can never be guaranteed. Data
may be delayed, corrupted (i.e., have errors) or be totally lost.
Although significant delays or losses of data are rare when
wireless devices such as the Sierra Wireless modem are used in
a normal manner with a well-constructed network, the Sierra
Wireless modem should not be used in situations where
failure to transmit or receive data could result in damage of
any kind to the user or any other party, including but not
limited to personal injury, death, or loss of property. Sierra
Wireless, accepts no responsibility for damages of any kind
resulting from delays or errors in data transmitted or received
using the Sierra Wireless modem, or for failure of the Sierra
Wireless modem to transmit or receive such data.
Safety and Hazards
Do not operate the Sierra Wireless modem in areas where
blasting is in progress, where explosive atmospheres may be
present, near medical equipment, near life support equipment,
or any equipment which may be susceptible to any form of
radio interference. In such areas, the Sierra Wireless modem
MUST BE POWERED OFF. The Sierra Wireless modem can
transmit signals that could interfere with this equipment.
Do not operate the Sierra Wireless modem in any aircraft,
whether the aircraft is on the ground or in flight. In aircraft, the
Sierra Wireless modem MUST BE POWERED OFF. When
operating, the Sierra Wireless modem can transmit signals that
could interfere with various onboard systems.
Note: Some airlines may permit the use of cellular phones while the
aircraft is on the ground and the door is open. Sierra Wireless
modems may be used at this time.
The driver or operator of any vehicle should not operate a
computer or any other device connected to the Sierra Wireless
modem while in control of a vehicle. Doing so will detract
from the driver or operator's control and operation of that
vehicle. In some states and provinces, operating such commu­
nications devices while in control of a vehicle is an offence.

Introduction
This reference details the Attention (AT) command set
supported by the MP 700 Series GPS rugged wireless modem.
You should be familiar with the use of AT commands with
standard wireline modems to use this document.
The Sierra Wireless GSM products present two methods of
controlling the modem: AT commands and CnS (Control and
Status) language. Some features or capabilities of the modem
require the use of CnS. This document presumes that the AT
interface is the only interface available to you; features
requiring CnS are not discussed.
References
This guide covers only the command set used by the MP 700 Series GPS and does not deal with operational use. Refer to the product documentation for instructions on using your modem.
Not all commands include detailed descriptions. Commands are implemented to be compliant with industry standards and reference is often made to the following standards:
• IS-131 (Data Transmission Systems and Equipment Extensions to Serial Asynchronous dialing and Control)
• EIA/TIA-592 (Asynchronous Facsimile DCE Control
Standard, Service Class 2)
• EIA/TIA/IS-134 (Amendments to TIA-592 to Support T.30­
1993 (Facsimile protocol standard))

About This Guide
Document Structure
Following this introduction is a section on basic elements
important to understanding and communicating with the
MP 700 Series GPS. This includes notes on the connection
between the host computer and the modem.
The document then presents the commands, registers, result
codes, and defaults provided in the command state of the
modem.
Commands are often termed AT commands. Hayes™ origi­
nated the convention of prefixing commands with an
“ATtention” string for wireline modems.
In addition to the commands, this document also describes the
definitions and use of status registers.
Commands are referenced in strict alphabetical order. This
facilitates searches for the syntax, parameters, and operation of
specific commands. To help locate whether or not a command
exists to perform a desired function, there are tables
organizing the commands into groups.
Descriptions of the definitions and use of status registers, as
well as a table of the factory/reset defaults, follow, along with
result codes, both numeric and verbose.
Conventions
The following format conventions are used in this reference:
• Character codes or keystrokes which are described with
words or standard abbreviations are shown within angle
brackets using a different font: such as <CR> for Carriage
Return and <space> for a blank space (spacebar) character.
• Numeric values are decimal unless prefixed as noted
below.
• Hexadecimal values are shown with a prefix of 0x, i.e. in
the form 0x3D.
• Binary values are shown with a prefix of 0b, i.e. in the form
0b00111101.
• Command and register syntax is noted using an alternate
font: ATD6045559010.
Note: The AT characters must be included before all commands,
except as noted in the reference tables.
Rev 3.2 Oct.05

MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
• Characters that are required are shown in uppercase;
parameters are noted in lowercase. Parameters are
enclosed in angle brackets (<i>) to indicate that they should
be replaced with a value. Optional parameters are
described in the text, and may also be enclosed in square
brackets ([<m>]) for clarity.
• Supported parameter values (either set or returned) are
described in the text.
Note: The brackets shown with parameters are not to be included in
the command string.
The default settings are noted in the command tables. Note
that these are the factory default settings and not the default
parameter value assumed if no parameter is specified. The
factory defaults are also noted in a section at the end of the
Commands chapter, on page 107.
Result Code This is a numeric or text code that is returned
after all commands (except resets). Only one result code is
returned for a command line regardless of the number of
individual commands contained on the line.
Response This term indicates a response from the modem
that is issued prior to a result code. Reading registers or
issuing commands that report information will provide a
response followed by a result code unless the command
generates an error.
See page 20 for a discussion of how the modem frames these
two elements.

This section provides the information required to:
• Establish a communications session with the modem that
will allow you to enter AT commands
• Understand the operating modes and states of the modem
and what causes the modem to transition between them
• Understand which commands are available during
connections and which are not
• Understand how the modem’s results and responses are
framed and change the framing where required
GSM, GPRS, and EDGE
The MP 700 Series GPS operates on GSM network technology.
GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) is a type of
wireless communications network designed for mobile phones
that is widely deployed throughout the world. GPRS (General
Packet Radio Service) and EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for
GSM Evolution) are add-on data services to GSM networks.
GPRS provides a maximum data transmission speed of
56 kbps while EDGE provides a maximum data transmission
speed of 216 kbps. The MP 750 GPS supports GPRS while the
MP 775 GPS supports GPRS and EDGE service.
GPRS service has been implemented on most GSM networks
but there are a few areas (mainly rural areas in Europe) with
GSM coverage but no GPRS service. EDGE is less widely
implemented. The MP 700 Series GPS modem is primarily
designed to provide GPRS/EDGE data connections but the
modem can also be configured (using the Fallback feature) to
Rev 3.2 Oct.05
11
MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
establish CSD (Circuit-Switched Data) connections in areas
that have GSM but no GPRS/EDGE service (assuming CSD is
supported by your service provider).
Establishing a communication
session
Any terminal emulation program can be used to create a
communications session that will allow you to issue AT
commands to the modem. This section describes how to use
HyperTerminal, a program typically installed with Windows,
to establish a session with the modem.
To establish the communications session:
1. If the modem is not already connected to a serial port on
your computer, connect it.
2. If open, close Watcher (or any other program that commu­
nicates with the modem).
3. Launch HyperTerminal. (Depending on your version of
Windows and how it was installed, you can launch the
program by selecting Start > Programs > Accessories >
Communications > HyperTerminal.)
4. Enter any name and select any icon in the Connection
Description window and click OK.
5. Select the COM port to which the modem is connected
(usually COM1) in the Connect using field, and click OK.
6. Select these port settings:
· Bits per second
115,200
· Data bits
8
· Parity
None
· Stop bits
1
· Flow control
Hardware
Click OK.
To verify that the communications session is functional, enter
AT. The modem should respond with OK.

Modem Basics
Host connection basics
Hardware structure
The MP 700 Series GPS has two main components: the
AirCard® wireless network card and the controller board.
Each of these components has its own firmware (resident
software). There is a serial link between the AirCard and the
controller board.
All AT commands that begin with AT!MP are handled by the
controller board and all others are handled by the AirCard.
It is important to recognize these two command types because
during modem-to-network connections, the MP 700 Series GPS
does not respond to AirCard AT commands. (That is, only
AT!MP commands will work.) This means that it is not possible
to, for example, check the signal strength using the command
AT!RSSI? during a modem-to-network connection.
Host and network connections
When the MP 700 Series GPS is used to access Internet services
or retrieve data over a VPN connection, two connections are
required: the host-to-modem connection and the modem-to
network connection.

MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
Modem-to-network connection
Note: If you are developing a
network application to control or
monitor MP 700 Series GPS
modems installed in a fleet of
vehicles, it is usually best to use
Always On mode. (With On
Demand mode, it can be difficult
to track the modems’ IP
addresses.)
The operating mode determines how the modem-to-network
connection is established. In Always On mode, the modem-to
network connection is established whenever the modem is
powered and GPRS/EDGE service is available. In On Demand
mode, the modem-to-network connection is established only
when the host-to-modem connection is requested.
Regardless of the operating mode, the modem-to-network
connection is established as needed, if the modem has been
configured to send MTP data. (See the AT!MPMTCONF
command on page 50.)
Host-to-modem connection
The MP 700 Series GPS supports serial and USB host connec­
tions. To issue AT commands to the modem, the serial
connection is required. Having a USB connection in addition to
the serial connection has two main advantages:
• USB provides a higher data rate between the host and the
modem
Note: The AT command
AT!MPOPMODE is used to set
the operating mode.
• With a USB connection, the modem connects instantly to
the network on startup. With only a serial connection, you
must establish the connection using Watcher or Windows
DUN (Dial-Up Networking.) With a USB host connection,
and the operating mode set to Always On, it is not necessary
to run Watcher or DUN to make connections.
If you intend to have both a serial and USB connection, you
must install the modem using the USB option. (When you
install the modem software, you are prompted to indicate
whether you are using a serial or USB connection. When you
select the USB option, both the serial and USB drivers are
installed.) If you install the modem using the serial option and
then connect a USB cable, the host computer will not be able to
communicate with the modem.
Modem modes, states, and
conditions
This document uses the words mode (circuit-switched data,
packet-switched data, fax, or voice), state (command or data), and
condition (online or offline) to describe the modem’s operational
status.

Modem Basics
Connection Modes
The MP 700 Series GPS operates in three modes:
Circuit-switched data (CSD) In Circuit Switched Data
(CSD) mode, the modem operates much like a landline
modem.
The Fallback feature must be configured to allow for this type
of connection. (See !MPFBSETUP on page 41.)
Packet-switched data In this mode the modem establishes a
high-speed packet data connection using GPRS or EDGE service.
Voice If your account allows for it, you can attach a headset to
your modem and use it as a mobile phone. You require a 4-wire
headset with a 2.5 mm connector, to use your modem as a phone.
(This plugs into the Audio connector on the back of the
modem. You may need an extension cable if the modem is
installed in the trunk. Contact your service provider to
determine what extension cables are supported.)
States
The modem’s state indicates what form of communication is
occurring between the modem and the host computer.
At any time the modem is in one of two states:
Command The modem exchanges data with the host
computer as AT commands and replies. During voice commu­
nications the modem is always in command state.
Data
The modem exchanges computer data with the host.
Note: The modem cannot be in voice mode and data state. Even
while off-hook with a voice call active, the modem still communicates
over the serial connection in command state. Commands can be
issued and executed while a voice call is in progress.
Conditions
The modem’s condition indicates whether there is a network
connection (airlink). At any time, the modem is in one of two
conditions:
Online Actively connected to a remote terminal or network
(off-hook). In the online condition, the modem can either be in
command state or in data state.
Rev 3.2 Oct.05
15
MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
Offline Disconnected from any remote terminal or network
(on-hook). While in offline condition, the modem can only be
in command state (without an airlink).
The following tables show the possible combinations of
modes, states, and conditions:

State Transitions
The auto connect feature (see !MPPADSETUP on page 54) deter­
mines what state is established when the modem is powered:
• If autoconnect is enabled, on start-up the modem is in data
state. (A PAD session is established, but not necessarily an
Internet connection.)
• If autoconnect is disabled, on start-up the modem is in
command state.
Command to data state
Note: A transition to command
state from data state does not
require that the session be
closed. This means that DCD will
remain asserted while the
modem is in command state,
online condition.
The modem changes from command to data state when a
session is opened either by dialing a connection, or by
answering a data call. When a session opens, the modem
issues the CONNECT message and, depending on the DCD
setting (see page 58), asserts the DCD control signal.
Data to command state
The modem changes from data to command state when:
• The DTR de-asserts (depending on settings made, &D1 or
&D2).
• The modem is reset or power-cycled (if autoconnect is
disabled).
16

Modem Basics
• If there is an active PAD (Packet Assembler/Disassembler)
session and the PAD is configured to use TIES (Time
Independent Escape Sequence), the modem switches to
command state on receipt of “AT+++”. (The “AT” must be
in upper case.) The command !MPPADCONF (described
on page 52) is used to enable and disable TIES.
When the modem changes to command state, it will issue an OK
result. This may be preceded by another result (such as NO
CARRIER) to indicate that the session was closed by an event
outside the modem. The modem returns to command state when
a session is closed.
Modem Buffers
Communication between the host and modem is buffered
based on the modem’s state.
Command buffer
When in command state, the modem buffers the input from
the host until a <CR> is entered. The buffered data can be
edited using the backspace <BS>. The modem (unless Echo is
enabled) echoes the sequence <BS><space><BS> for human
readability.
There is a limit of 200 characters to one command line,
including the AT prefix and the <CR> termination (i.e. 197
characters of useful command buffer). If the command buffer
length is exceeded the modem will continue to echo input
(which is not buffered) until the <CR> is received. When the
<CR> is entered, the modem returns the ERROR result code
without executing any commands in the line. Once over the
limit, the <BS> will not bring you back under the limit; the
ERROR code is still returned.
The command buffer is distinct from the data receive and
transmit buffers. The command buffer retains the contents of
the last issued command until the AT command prefix is
received for the next command. This allows repeating of the
last issued command by entering A/.
Data buffers
Data being transmitted or received is buffered in several ways
depending on the mode and nature of the connection. Some
caution must be taken when disconnecting to ensure that any
buffered data in the modem has been properly processed prior
to breaking the connection.
Rev 3.2 Oct.05
17
MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
Specific settings for buffer controls are described in the
relevant commands and registers. Normal configuration of the
modem will not require you to adjust these settings.
Data flow control The modem’s CTS and RTS lines control
data flow. Where large amounts of data are being exchanged,
local hardware flow control must be used to prevent buffer
overflows; it is required for PPP connections. Hardware flow
control is enabled by default. (See the +IPR command on
page 98).
Command Handling
AT can be issued as a command without parameters. It acts like
a “ping” to the modem and always gives a result code of OK
(unless quiet mode is enabled).
Commands are not case-sensitive; they may be entered in
upper or lower case, or a combination. Arguments to
commands may be case-sensitive.
Concatenation
Note: When concatenated
together, AT commands may not
function predictably. It is best to
avoid concatenating commands
without first testing and verifying
the results.
More than one command can be included in a single line,
although some commands or their parameters must be placed
at the end of the line. When concatenating commands, a space
between basic commands is optional. Where extended
commands (those beginning with a non-alphabetic character
after the AT) are concatenated, they must be separated by a
semicolon (;).
Commands are executed in the order entered. If a command
results in the ERROR result code the balance of the command
line is ignored. Only one result code is returned for the entire
command line. The complete concatenated command string
must not exceed the 200-character command buffer limit. (See
page 17).
Parameters
Most AT commands support one or more parameters, usually
a number. Allowed values are specified in this reference.
Commands that normally accept a single numeric option
switch ([<n>]) and are issued without that parameter will
assume a value of zero (0).
18
2130309
Modem Basics
Note: Entering incorrect syntax
or a parameter outside of the
specified range may have
unexpected results.
Defaults shown in the command tables are those for the
factory settings of the modem. They are not the defaults
assumed for a command issued without parameters, which are
noted in the text.
Registers
Some registers are read only. Attempting to write to them
yields an ERROR result code.
Some registers store the setting of commands. Changing the
register is equivalent to changing the command setting.
The table for S registers indicates the standard default values.
The factory defaults are also noted in a separate sub-section.
Responses and Result Codes
Most commands return only a result code; however, some
commands request information, which is provided by the
modem as a response prior to the result code.
Possible result codes
Result codes are not shown in the command tables unless
special conditions apply. Generally the result code OK is
returned when the command has been executed. ERROR may
be returned if parameters are out of range, and will be
returned if the command is not recognized, or the command is
not permitted in the current mode, state, or condition of the
modem.
See the table on page 106 for a listing of result codes.
Human vs. machine interface
The AT command interface was designed for human inter­
action. When an intelligent host is managing a modem, the
interface may need to be altered (result code words replaced
with numbers, for example). Framing characters (line feeds
and carriage returns) must be properly understood to ensure
the host system properly parses the responses and result
codes.
As shipped, the modem is configured with these settings:
• Echo enabled (E1) causes the modem to echo characters
received from the host back to it while in command state.
The backspace is echoed as <BS> <space> <BS> in order to
erase the last character.
Rev 3.2 Oct.05
19
MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
• Quiet off (Q0) enables the modem to issue result codes
following commands. Quiet on (Q1) suppresses result
codes entirely; responses remain unaffected.
• Verbose result codes enabled (V1) provides results in
English text appended with <CR><LF>. Verbose off (V0)
returns the results as ASCII numeral codes. Numeric codes
are much easier to process using software.
With Echo on (E1 - the default) data received from the local
host while in command state is echoed back to the host. This
can present problems to machine control, which is not inter­
ested in an echo of its own commands to the modem. In some
configurations the echo should be turned off (E0).
Response and Result Framing
Depending on the modem configuration, modem responses
and result codes are framed, typically with the <CR> and <LF>
characters.
If you are designing or customizing software that will interface
with the modem using AT commands, it is necessary to under­
stand how the modem frames its responses and result codes.
Framing Characters The modem frames its replies with
carriage return and line feed characters as they are defined in
registers S3 and S4 respectively. These are normally the ASCII
value 13 for carriage return (<CR>) and 10 for line feed (<LF>).
(The following discussion assumes that <CR> and <LF> are
used.)
Response framing
Regardless of how the modem is configured, responses to
commands are in the form of ASCII text with a trailing
<CR><LF>. Where a response has more than one line, each line
is terminated with a <CR><LF>.
When the Verbose setting is on (ATV1, see page 102) each
response has a leading <CR><LF>. If Verbose is off (ATV0),
there are no leading characters prior to the first line of
response.
The setting of Quiet (ATQ, see page 102) has no impact on
responses.
20
2130309
Modem Basics
Result code framing
Every command will return a result code unless the Quiet
command is enabled. If Quiet is on (ATQ1, see page 102) then
neither framing characters nor result code is returned.
A leading <CR><LF> is inserted ahead of the result code if
Verbose is on (ATV1, see page 102). Otherwise there are no
leading characters prior to the ASCII numeral result. The result
code is always followed by a <CR>. There is a trailing <LF>
only if Verbose is on. For example, the result code OK appears
as:
• <CR><LF>OK<CR><LF>
if verbose is on (ATV1)
• 0<CR>
if verbose is off (ATV0)
When ATV1 is set and there is an error,
<CR><LF>ERROR<CR><LF> is sent to the host computer and no
subsequent commands in the command line are processed. If
ATV0 is set, result code 4<CR> is sent instead.
The ERROR (or 4) response may be replaced by +CME ERROR:
<err> when the command is not processed because of a GSM
radio connection error.
GPS data format
The MP 700 Series GPS sends GPS data out in UDP packets.
The packets contain either:
• TAIP or NMEA messages
• Data packets framed according to a Sierra Wireless
protocol called RNAP (Remote Network Access Protocol).
RNAP is described in detail in the Software Installation, Configu
ration, and Integration Guide on the CD that is shipped with the
MP 750 GPS.

Introduction
As described in the previous section, AT commands are
available with Sierra Wireless GSM products for users of the
COM serial interface. The commands allow control of Circuit
Switched Data (CSD) calls and data exchange, similar to dial­
up modems, but without wires, and with additional
commands available specific to GSM, GPRS, and EDGE.
The AT command set has grown from the original set used
with Hayes™ landline modems to support wireless connec­
tions and is now standardized by the Third Generation
Partnership Project (3GPP). The commands are defined in the
standards known as V.25ter (for standard modem commands),
GSM 07.07 (for GSM and GPRS) and GSM 07.05 (for text
messaging, also known as short message service—SMS). The
following sections describe those commands.
AT commands conform by default to the Phase 2 specifications
for GSM 07.07 and GSM 07.05. Some AT commands have been
implemented according to Phase 2+ in order to support
extended features, such as 14.4 kbps CSD connections.
Note: Not every GSM/GPRS
product supports all commands.
The AT commands provide the following features for Sierra
Wireless GSM devices:
• Voice service
• Short Message Service (SMS)
• Circuit switched data service (CSD), including V.42bis data
compression
• GPRS packet data service
• EDGE packet data service
Rev 3.2 Oct.05

MP 700 Series GPS AT Command Reference
Command Types
Note: The AT prefix does not
appear in the reference tables. It
is, however, required and
assumed for all commands
unless specifically noted
otherwise.
The command reference table (beginning on page 31) details
the available AT commands in strict ASCII alphabetic order
(including character prefixes such as !, & and +, which in ASCII
fall before the letters of the alphabet). Sections preceding those
tables outline how the commands are organized into
functional groups, including:
•
Standard modem commands, beginning on page 24.
•
GSM voice and circuit-switched data from page 26.
•
SMS commands, page 27.
•
GPRS packet data commands, page 28.
•
EDGE packet data commands, page 28.
Within each functional section, commands also appear in
ASCII alphabetic order, with a cross-reference to the full
description in the reference table. This format allows quick
lookup of each command to verify syntax, parameters, and
behaviors.
Standard Modem Commands (V.25ter)
Sierra Wireless GSM/GPRS devices support most of the
standard AT commands used by telecommunications software
for over twenty years.
The following commands are derived from the original 1981
Hayes AT landline modem command set, with some
additional commands specific to wireless devices.
These commands have been standardized by the International
Telecommunications Union (ITU) as ITU-T recommendation
V.250 (also known as V.25ter). You can find more information
on the standard at www.itu.int.

Command
!ACCR?
Description
Query SIM code status
Returns the status of the SIM, indicating:
• whether the SIM is detected
• what password, if any, the SIM is requesting
• the number of retries available (if applicable)
The PIN and PUK codes are used to prevent unauthorized use of the SIM. The
PIN code is user-defined. Typically the number of retries allowed on the PIN
code is three. If the correct PIN is not entered within this number of retries, the
SIM becomes blocked and the PUK code is required. Typically the number of
retries on the PUK code is ten. If the correct PUK code is not entered within that
number of attempts, the SIM becomes permanently blocked.
Some modems are configured for use with SIMs of a particular carrier. The MEP
code de-activates the mechanism that restricts the modem to SIMs of a
particular carrier. There is no maximum number of retries on MEP codes.
!ACCR? returns <code>[,<password retries>].
Supported values

•
•
<code>=”SIM READY”
<code>=”SIM PIN”
<code>=”SIM PUK”
<code>=”SIM NOT PRESENT”
<code>=”SIM MEP LOCK”
• <code>=”SIM NET REJECT”
• <code>=”SIM FAIL”
SIM is detected; no code is requested
SIM is requesting PIN code
SIM is requesting PUK code
SIM is not detected
Modem is not configured to work with
current SIM; MEP code is required to

Invalid account
SIM failure
The number of retries is reported where <code> = SIM READY, SIM PIN, or SIM
PUK.
Note: The SIM is peramanently blocked when !ACCR=SIM PUK,0 is returned.
Use the AT command +CPIN (page 89) to enter any codes the SIM is
requesting.

Report the state of the specified analog input channel
The MP 700 Series GPS has four analog input channels, allowing analog
sensors and gauges to be connected to the modem. These must be connected
to the appropriate pins of the DB15 I/O connector. (See the Software
Installation, Configuration, and Integration Guide on the MP 700 Series GPS
installation CD for more information about configuring I/O devices.) The
channels correspond to the pins as follows:
•
•
•
•
<chan>=1
<chan>=2
<chan>=3
<chan>=4
Analog input 1—Pin 14
Analog input 2—Pin 7
Analog input 3—Pin 15
Analog input 4—Pin 8
Channels 5, 7, and 8, correspond to test points in the modem. The voltage at
these points is measured for diagnostic purposes. Channel 6 reports the battery
voltage. Watcher uses this to control the low-battery indicator and display
warning messages.
The <scale> value determines how the state is reported:
• <scale>=0
Reports the raw value (0 to 1023)
• <scale>=1
Reports the scaled value (See
!MPAINCFG.)

Note: This command is only available on MP 750 GPS modems with firmware
version R2_2_1ap or later and on MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version
R3_0_5ap or later. The <vpnflag> parameter is only supported with firmware
version R3_0_7ap or later.
Sets the port number on which the MP 700 Series GPS receives RNAP/UDP or
raw-GPS/UDP packets and sets the VPN support flag.
The parameters are:
• <rnapport>
The UDP port number used to listen for RNAP packets (1 65535).
• <rawgpsport> The UDP port number used to listen for raw GPS (TAIP)
messages (1 - 65535).
• <vpnflag>
Determines how RNAP data is routed. When disabled
(<vpnflag>=0), RNAP data is encapsulated in UDP packets
and sent to the GSM network. When enabled (<vpnflag>=1),
RNAP data is sent to the host PC, so that it can be routed
through a VPN client.
The !MPMTCONF command sets whether raw GPS data or MTP data is sent.
(The <ctype> parameter is used to make the setting. See page 50.)
!MPCONFSNAP? returns the current ports.

Note: This command is only available on MP 750 GPS modems with firmware
version R2_2_1ap or later and on MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version
R3_0_5ap or later.
The Connection Watchdog monitors connections to determine whether the
modem is receiving any data. If the modem is not receiving data, the
Connection Watchdog either sends a DNS query to the DNS server or pings a
specified IP address, depending on how the feature is configured. If data
transmission is resumed following the DNS query or ping, the modem maintains
the connection. Otherwise the modem terminates the connection. If the modem
is in “always-on” mode, the modem attempts reconnection once the connection
is terminated. (See !MPOPMODE on page 52.) This command also allows you
to set the modem to either disconnect the data connection or reset the radio
component whenever the Connection Watchdog has detected an invalid data
connection.

(continued)
Description
Set Connection Watchdog (continued)
When a new connection is established, the modem verifies that the DNS server
is valid or that pings are possible (depending on the <mode> setting), before the
modem begins monitoring for data receipt. If the modem is unable to verify the
DNS server or the ping fails, the Connection Watchdog remains inactive, but the
modem continues to either ping or verify the DNS server at the interval set by
the <dnstime> parameter.
The parameters are:
<rxtime>
Interval (in minutes) at which the modem checks whether data
is being received. When this interval is reached, depending on
the <mode> setting, the modem either sends a DNS query or
pings the address specified by the <PING IP> parameter. The
allowed values are 0 to 240. When set to 0, the Connection
Watchdog is disabled. (0 is the default.)
<dnstime>
Interval (in minutes) at which the modem checks for a DNS
server or attempts a ping when a new connection is
established. On MP 750 GPS modems with firmware version
2_1_11ap, and MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version
3_0_5ap, the allowed values are 0 to 240. On MP 750 GPS
modems with firmware version 2_1_12ap or higher ,and
MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version 3_0_7ap or
higher, the allowed values are 1 to 240. (30 is the default.)
dnsport#
DNS port number used by the MP. The allowed values are 1 to
65535. The default is 7367. To avoid selecting a port number
that is in use by another component, it is advisable to use the
default port number.
dnsname
Website name for DNS to resolve (such as
“www.sierrawireless.com”). (The maximum string length is 128
characters.)
AC Reset Flag Flag that determines whether the radio component is
reset when the Connection Watchdog determines that a
connection has failed. When set to 0 (the default), the
Connection Watchdog terminates invalid connections but does
NOT perform a reset. When set to 1, the Connection
Watchdog resets the radio component after terminating the
connection.
Note: In firmware version 2_1_12ap on the MP 750 GPS, and firmware version
3_0_7ap on the MP 775 GPS, the <AC Reset Flag> parameter has replaced
the <max number of CW-triggered disconnects> parameter that was in
firmware versions 2_1_11ap and 3_0_5ap respectively. The <max number of
CW-triggered disconnects> set the modem to reset the radio component after
a specified number of consecutive Connection Watchdog-triggered disconnects. (The allowed values were 1 to 65535.)

<PING IP>
IP address that the modem pings when the <mode> parameter
is set to ping. The format is X.X.X.X where X is a value
between 0 and 255. (The default is 0.0.0.0.)
<mode>
Action that the modem takes when the <rxtime> interval is
reached; 0 = DNS query, 1 = ping.
As an example, the following AT command would configure the modem to verify
a DNS address when a connection is established:
at!mpcwsetup=10,30,7367,”www.sierrawireless.com”,0,0.0.0.0,0
In the above example:
• Once a connection is established, the Connection Watchdog goes into
“validating mode”, and attempts to validate the DNS server. (<mode> = 0)
• DNS validation is performed by looking up the domain name
www.sierrawireless.com (<dnsname> = “www.sierrawireless.com”)
• If the DNS lookup fails, the modem remains in “validating mode”, looking
up the domain name every 30 minutes (<dnstime> = 30)
• If the DNS lookup is successful, the Connection Watchdog goes into
“monitoring mode”. The modem checks the Rx byte count every 10
minutes (<rxtime> = 10). If the Rx byte count changes during the 10 minute
interval, the connection is deemed to be valid. If the Rx byte count does not
change, the modem generates traffic by performing a DNS look-up. If the
Rx byte count changes as a result of the DNS look-up, the connection is
deemed to be valid. Otherwise the connection is terminated.
• The Connection Watchdog does NOT reset the modem after terminating
an invalid connection in this example (<AC Reset Flag> = 0). If the <AC
Reset Flag> were set to 1, the radio component would be reset after the
modem terminated any invalid connection.
As another example, the following AT command would configure the modem to
ping a specified IP address when a connection is established:
at!mpcwsetup=10,30,7367,”www.sierrawireless.com”,0,100.101.102.10
3,1
In the above example:
• Once a connection is established, the Connection Watchdog goes into
“validating mode”, and attempts to ping the server. (<mode> = 1)
• DNS validation is performed by pinging the address 100.101.102.103
(<PING IP> = 100.101.102.103)
• If the ping fails, the modem remains in “validating mode”, looking up the
domain name every 30 minutes (<dnstime> = 30)

!MPFBSETUP?
Description
Configure the Fallback connection
The Fallback feature allows the MP 700 Series GPS to automatically establish a
dial-up (circuit-switched) connection when GPRS service is lost during a
connection. (Fallback is only useful in areas that have GSM but not GPRS
coverage. See the Software Installation, Configuration, and Integration Guide
on the MP 700 Series GPS CD for more information about this feature.)
!MPFBSETUP sets up the dial-up connection invoked by the Fallback feature.
These other commands affect the behavior of the feature:
• !MPFBTIME—determines how long the modem waits between losing GPRS
service and initiating the Fallback connection.
• !MPFBKEND—determines how the modem behaves if GPRS service is re­
acquired during a Fallback connection.
• !MPBARSVC—enables and disables Fallback and GPRS connections
(effectively enabling and disabling this feature).
Fallback only works when the default GPRS profile is in use, and only where the
network supports dial-up connections.
Parameter settings
The supported values are:
• Connection description <label>=
32 character string
• Username <Username>=
32 character string
• Password <Password>=
32 character string
• Phone number <Phone#>=
32 characters (0-9, #, *)
!MPFBSETUP? returns the current configuration.

Note that TAIP commands use “>” as the start delimiter and “<“ as the end
delimiter. For example, to issue the TAIP command QST (which queries the
operational status of the GPS module), you would enter:
AT!MPGPSCMD=" >QST<"
For a listing of TAIP commands see the TAIP Reference on the Sierra Wireless
web site (www.sierrawireless.com) or see the Trimble web site
(www.trimble.com). (The GPS module in the modem is the SQ. If no
documentation is available for the SQ, see the SVeeEight Plus GPS System
Designer Reference Manual.)
!MPGPSCOMOUT=
Enable GPS output to the AT command port
<enable>, <save to NV>
This command is only available on modems with firmware version 2.0 or
greater.
When GPS output to the AT command port is enabled (the <enable> parameter
is set to 1), the MP 750 GPS sends TAIP or NMEA data to the COM port. This
might be used to provide data to a third-party “moving map” application. Setting
the <enable> parameter to 0 stops the output. (The default is 0.)
The <save to NV> parameter is used to specify whether the <enable> setting is
saved to non-volatile memory. If the setting is saved to memory, it persists
across power cycles. (The default is 0, where the <enable> setting is NOT
saved to memory.)
Note: When GPS output to the AT command port is enabled, GPS output
occurs until the DTR line is deasserted or TIES is issued, depending on the
setting made using the command !MPGPSESC. (See page 45.)

Command
Description
!MPGPSSTOR=
<#GPSrecords>
Enable / disable storing and forwarding of GPS records
!MPGPSSTOR?
Note: This command is only available on MP 750 GPS modems with firmware
version R2_2_1ap or later and on MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version
R3_0_5ap or later.
GPS records (TAIP or NMEA) can be stored on the modem when the modem is
out of GSM coverage and automatically forwarded when GSM coverage is re­
acquired. The parameter <#GPSrecords> sets the total number of records the
modem accumulates while out of coverage (maximum 1000). When this number
is reached, the modem discards the oldest record as each new record is
captured so that the stored records are the most recent. The feature is disabled
when <#GPSrecords> is set to 0.
!MPGPSSTOR? returns the current setting, showing how many records are
being stored.
!MPGPSTAIP=<LN>,
<PV>, <CP>,
<AL>,<ST>
!MPGPSTAIP?
Set / query TAIP messages sent in RNAP
Note: This command is only available on MP 750 GPS modems with firmware
version R2_2_7ap or later and on MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version
R3_1_2ap or later.
This command requires that the module be configured to use the TAIP protocol.
(See !MPGPSRESET.)
GPS data sent from the MP 700 Series GPS is framed according to a
proprietary protocol called RNAP. (RNAP is described in the Software
Installation, Configuration, and Integration Guide available on the CD that came
with your modem, and on the Sierra Wireless web site,
www.sierrawireless.com.) Unless the modem is configured to use NMEA, GPS
data is sent in the form of TAIP messages which are embedded in the RNAP
messages.

Command
!MPGPSTAIP
(continued)
Description
Set / query TAIP messages sent in RNAP (continued)
This command allows you to specify which of the following TAIP messages are
sent:
• LN—Long navigation message
• PV—Position / velocity solution
• CP—Compact position solution
• AL—Altitude / vertical velocity
• ST—Status
The TAIP Reference on the Sierra Wireless web site describes these messages
in detail.
Parameter settings
For each parameter (<LN>, <PV>, <CP>, <AL>, <ST>), a setting of 1 enables
the message (includes it in the RNAP mesage) and a setting of 0 disables the
message. By default, only <LN> is enabled.
!MPGPSTAIP? returns the current settings, showing which messages are
enabled.
!MPGPSTRACK=
<track>
Set / query GPS tracking for MT reporting
!MPGPSTRACK?
Note: This command is only available on MP 750 GPS modems with firmware
version R2_2_7ap or later and on MP 775 GPS modems with firmware version
R3_1_2ap or later.
Allows you to suppress MT messages from being sent when the GPS module
does not have a fix on enough satellites to calculate its position. This command
only has effect when the MP is in non-polling mode (that is, the last parameter of
the !MPMTCONF command is set to zero). In this mode, the GPS module must
be configured for frequency or distance reporting in order for GPS reports to be
issued by the GPS module. )
When the <track> parameter is set to 0, all GPS messages are forwarded,
regardless of whether the message contains valid GPS data. When the <track>
parameter is set to 1, GPS messages are only forwarded if the GPS module is
able to calculate a position. (The module must have a fix on three satellites to
calculate latitude and longitude.)
!MPGPSTRACK? returns the current setting of the <track> parameter.
!MPGRESET
Reset the MP and the PC Card module
Generates a hard reset of the modem (the equivalent of powering down then
powering up).
!MPGVER?
Query current firmware revision
Returns a text string identifying the current firmware revision of the PC Card
module.

!MPMTCONF=
<engid>,
<ctype>,
<destip>,

!MPMTCONF?
<n>
Configure MT protocol
A proprietary protocol called “MT” is used to report the GPS and I/O data from
the modem. (“MT” is for “Monitoring and Tracking”. The protocol defines the
contents and format of the reported data.) The Software Installation,
Configuration, and Integration Guide on the installation CD provides a
description of this protocol.
The modem provides four independent reporting engines, allowing the MT data
to be simultaneously sent to four different destinations. The !MPMTCONF
command sets the destination addresses, port numbers, and timers for each of
the four engines.
Three timers control how frequently MT reports are sent: the low rate timer, the
high rate timer, and the GPS timer. Each of these timers can be set to send
reports at a different frequency. The high rate timer only becomes active when
an alarm condition is triggered by a rise or drop in the level of one of the digital I/
O channels. (The !MPDIOCFG command controls the alarm triggers on the
digital I/O channels.)
When there is no active alarm, the low rate timer and GPS timer determine the
frequency of the reports. Where both timers are enabled, the timer with the
shortest interval controls the report frequency. The GPS timer (which is in
seconds) is generally set to a shorter interval than the low rate timer (which is in
minutes). (Having the two timers allows for a system that reports data more
frequently in certain conditions. For example, the GPS timer can be disabled
when the vehicle is stationary and enabled when the vehicle is moving.)

Command
!MPOPMODE=
<value>
!MPOPMODE?
Description
Select operating mode
The MP 700 Series GPS has two operating modes: Always On and On
Demand. The mode selection determines whether the modem establishes a
modem-to-GPRS connection in the absence of a host-to-modem connection. If
there is a modem-to-GPRS connection, but no host-to-modem connection, the
MP 700 Series GPS can send GPS data and provide notification on the state of
any connected sensors or gauges. The host-to-modem connection is required if
the user wants to web browse or send or receive messages.
• Always On—the modem establishes a modem-to-GPRS connection
whenever GPRS service is acquired. The connection is only terminated
when GPRS service is lost or the modem powered down.
• On Demand—the modem establishes a network connection only when a
connect request is made (by an AT command or from an application such as
Watcher). That is, the modem-to-GPRS connection is established only when
the host-to-modem connection is requested. When the host disconnects, the
modem-to GPRS connection is lost as soon as the inactivity timer expires.
(See !MPIDTIME.)
The <value> is either:
• <value>=0
Always On
• <value>=1
On Demand
The setting is maintained across power cycles.
!MPOPMODE? returns the operating mode.

Controls how packets are assembled, how PAD sessions are terminated, and
whether echoing and buffer editing are enabled or disabled.
The PAD assembles and sends a packet to the network when any of the
following occur:
• The maximum packet length is reached (as defined by the <thre>
parameter).
• The Inter-character timeout expires, (if enabled by the <c2c> parameter).
• The forwarding character is received, as defined by the <fwdchar>

Description
!MPUSB=<n>
Enable / disable USB operation
!MPUSB?
This command is only available on modems with firmware version 2.0 or
greater.
The MP 750 GPS can be connected to the host PC with either a serial or USB
cable. If only a serial cable is in use, this command has no effect.
If a USB cable is in use, this command enables and disables USB operation, as
specified by <n>:
• <n>=1 Enables USB operation (default)
• <n>=0 Disables USB operation
If the modem is attached to the host PC by USB cable (or by both a USB and
serial cable), USB operation must be disabled to allow for a DUN (Dial-Up
Networking) connection using ATD. (ATD is described on page 100.)
The modem must be reset before the command takes effect. (The modem can
be reset using the reset button or the !MPGRESET command.)
!MPUSB? returns the current USB state.
!MPWATCHER=<LAN>,

R3_1_0ap or later.
NAT support is required where the MP 750 GPS and the host PC (running
Watcher) are connected to a router, and where the router uses Network Address
Translation (NAT) on the UDP port address. (That is, “port address translation”
NATing.)
This command enables and disables the NAT flag. When enabled the
MP 750 GPS uses the source UDP port number of incoming IP/UDP packets as
the destination UDP port when replying to requests from the host. (When the
NAT flag is disabled, the MP 750 GPS uses the UDP port address that is set
using the !MPPRIVIP command. See page 55.)

+CGACT=?
Note: The Sierra
Wireless modem permits
only one PDP context to
be active at a time.
Description
GPRS PDP context activation/deactivation
In GPRS packet data mode, the +CGACT command activates (<state>=1) or
deactivates (<state>=0) the specified Packet Data Protocol (PDP) context, then
returns the modem to command state.
<cid> (the PDP Context Identifier) is a numeric parameter which specifies a
particular PDP context definition. +CGACT=? returns the permitted values. (See
also +CGPADDR on page 70.)
Details
• If the specified PDP context is already in the requested state, the state for
that context remains unchanged.
• If the requested state cannot be achieved, the modem returns an error.
(Extended error responses are enabled by the +CMEE command, page 76.)
• If the modem is not GPRS-attached when instructed to activate, it attempts
to perform a GPRS attach first. (See page 63.)
• If no <cid> is specified, the command either activates the default PDP
context, or deactivates the active one, as appropriate.
• +CGACT? returns the current activation state for the PDP context, while
+CGACT=? requests information on the supported PDP context activation
states.
+CGATT=<state>
GPRS attach or detach
+CGATT?
Attaches or detaches the Sierra Wireless modem from the GPRS network:
• <state>=0 detaches from the GPRS network.
• <state>=1 attaches to the GPRS network.
Any other values return an error.
Details
• If the modem is already in the requested state, the command is ignored and
the modem returns an OK response.
• Any active PDP contexts are deactivated before detaching from the GPRS
network.
• The +CGATT? command returns the current GPRS-attach state of the
modem.

+CGCLASS?
+CGCLASS=?
Description
GPRS mobile station class
The Sierra Wireless modem operates only as a Class B device. (That is, it can
be simultaneously attached to GSM and GPRS and can transmit voice or data.)
This command exists to query the device and to conform to GSM/GPRS
specifications, but only one set value is supported.
Any attempt to set any class other than B returns an error. +CGCLASS? returns
the current class of the modem, while +CGCLASS=? returns the supported
class value.
Supported values
The available class setting is:
• <class>=B
Class B
+CGDATA
[=<L2P>][,<cid>]
Note: Since the
+CGDATA command
enters data state, any
other commands in the
AT command line are not
processed.
Note: The Sierra
Wireless modem permits
only one PDP context to
be active at a time.
Enter data state
Attempts a GPRS attach and PDP context activation. If successful, the modem
returns CONNECT and enters the online data state. (The D command can also
operate in a similar fashion. See “Make GPRS connection” on page 25.)
GPRS attachment and PDP context activation procedures may take place prior
to or during the PDP startup if they have not already been performed using the
+CGACT and +CGATT commands (pages 63 and 63). If the activation is
successful, data transfer may proceed.
After data transfer is complete, and the layer 2 protocol termination procedure
has completed successfully, the modem re-enters command state and returns
the final result code OK. If there is an error, the V.25ter command state is re­
entered and the modem returns the final result code NO CARRIER or, if
enabled, +CME ERROR. Attach, activate and other errors may be reported.
+CGDATA=? returns information on the supported layer 2 protocol.
Supported values
• The Sierra Wireless modem supports only IP PDP, so the only supported
layer 2 protocol value of <L2P> is PPP. Other values will return an error.
If context activation takes place during the PDP startup, a context ID <cid> may
be specified in order to provide the information needed for the context activation
request (see +CGDCONT, page 65). If no <cid> is given or if there is no
matching context definition, the modem will attempt to activate the context with
default values.

Description
Define Packet Data Protocol (PDP) context
Specifies PDP context parameter values for a PDP context identified by the
local context identification parameter, <cid>. The number of PDP contexts that
may be in a defined state at the same time is given by the range returned by
+CGDCONT=?.
Note: The D**## command (used to establish GPRS connections) uses only
those settings assigned to the PDP Context Identifier 1 (that is, <cid>=1).
Note: A special form of the set command, +CGDCONT= <cid> causes the
values for context number <cid> to become undefined.
+CGDCONT? returns the current settings for each defined context, while
+CGDCONT=? returns values supported as a compound value. (The parameter
value ranges for each <PDP_type> are returned on a separate line.)
Note: The Sierra Wireless modem supports only one active PDP context at a
time.
Supported values
The set command specifies a number of parameters:
<cid> (PDP Context Identifier) is a numeric parameter which specifies a
particular PDP context definition. The range of permitted values (minimum value
= 1) is returned by +CGDCONT=?. (See also +CGPADDR on page 70.)
<PDP_type> (Packet Data Protocol type) is a string parameter which specifies
the type of packet data protocol. Only the IP context is supported:
• <PDP_type>=IP
Internet Protocol (IETF STD 5)
<APN> (Access Point Name) is a string parameter used to select the GGSN or
the external packet data network. If the value is null or omitted, then the
subscription value will be requested.
<PDP_address> is a string parameter that identifies the MT in the address
space applicable to the PDP. If the value is null or omitted, then a value may be
provided by the computer during the PDP startup procedure or, failing that, a
dynamic address will be requested. +CGDCONT? returns the null string even if
an address has been allocated during the PDP startup procedure. The allocated
address may be read using the +CGPADDR command (page 70).
<data_comp> is a numeric parameter that controls V.42bis PDP data
compression, 0 for off, 1 for on.
<head_comp> is a numeric parameter that controls PDP header compression, 0
for off, 1 for on.

<Delivery order> is a number specifying whether in-sequence SDU (Small
Downloadable Unit) delivery is to be provided by the UMTS bearer, where 0 =
no, 1 = yes, and 2 = subscribed value.
<Maximum SDU size> is the maximum allowed SDU size, in octets.
<SDU error ratio> is a string specifying a target ratio for SDUs that are lost or in
which errors are detected. (The target applies only to conforming traffic.) This
should be entered in the form “mEe”. For example, the value “5·10-3” should be
entered as “5E3”. When this parameter is set to “0E0”, the modem requests the
subscribed value.
<Residual bit error ratio> is a string specifying a target for the undetected bit
error ratio in delivered SDUs. This parameter sets the bit error ratio in delivered
SDUs if no error detection is requested. This should be entered in the form
“mEe”. For example, the value “5·10-3” should be entered as “5E3”. When this
parameter is set to “0E0”, the modem requests the subscribed value.
<Delivery of erroneous SDUs> is a number that indicates whether SDUs with
detected errors are to be delivered, where 0 = no, 1 = yes, 2 = no detect, and 3
= subscribed values.
<transfer delay> is a number specifying the target duration, in milliseconds,
between a request to transfer an SDU at one SAP and delivery of the SDU at
the other SAP. When this parameter is set to “0”, the modem requests the
subscribed value.
<traffic handling priority> is a number specifying the importance of SDUs
belonging to the UMTS bearer relative to SDUs belonging to other bearers.
When this parameter is set to “0”, the modem requests the subscribed value.

Description
Send SMS command
Sends an SMS Command message from the host computer to the network
(SMS-COMMAND). The message reference value <mr> is returned (as
+CMGC: <mr>) to the host computer if the message is successfully delivered,
and can be used to identify the message if an unsolicited delivery status code is
received.
How the command is used depends on the SMS message format specified in
+CMGF (page 78):
• In PDU mode (+CMGF=0), messages are sent as follows:
+CMGC=<length><CR>
<PDU data><CTRL+Z>
• In text mode (+CMGF=1), messages are sent in this form:
+CMGC=<fo>,<ct>,<pid>,<mn>,<da>,<toda><CR>
<message text><CTRL+Z>
Note: In both modes, sending <ESC> instead of <CTRL+Z> quits without
sending the message.
Supported values
Parameters for the text-mode send command are:
• <fo>
first octet of GSM 03.40 SMS-COMMAND in integer format (default
2)
• <ct>
GSM 03.40 TP-Command-Type in integer format (default 0)
• <pid> GSM 03.40 TP-Protocol-Identifier in integer format (default 0)
• <mn> GSM 03.40 TP-Message-Number in integer format
• <da>
GSM 03.40 TP-Destination-Address Address-Value field in string
format; BCD numbers (or GSM default alphabet characters) are
converted to characters; type of address given by <toda>
• <toda> GSM 04.11 TP-Destination-Address Type-of-Address octet in
integer format (when first character of <da> is + (IRA 43) default
is 145, otherwise default is 129)
For PDU mode:
• <length> integer type value indicating the length of the actual TP data unit
in octets (i.e. the RP layer SMSC address octets are not counted
in the length)
+CMGD=<index>

The message status, as listed on page 78.
<alpha>
An alphanumeric phone number representing the destination address
<da> or originating address <oa> in the modem phonebook.
<length>
The length of the message body in characters.
<pdu>
In PDU mode, the SMS message, in the form of the GSM 04.11 SC
address followed by the GSM 03.40 TPDU in hexadecimal format. The
modem converts each octet of TP data unit into two IRA character long
hexadecimal numbers (e.g. an octet with integer value 42 is presented to
the computer as two characters 2A—IRA 50 and 65.)
<oa/da>
The Originating-Address-Value <oa> field in string format; type of address
given by <tooa>, or the Destination-Address field <da> in string format;
type of address given by <toda>.
<scts>
Service-Centre-Time-Stamp in time-string format: “yy/MM/

the default is 145; otherwise the default is 129.
Send SMS message
Sends an SMS message to the network (SMS-SUBMIT) directly, without
requiring that it be stored in memory. A message reference value <mr> is
returned if the message has been successfully delivered, in the form
+CMGS: <mr>. It can be used to identify the message if an unsolicited delivery
status report result code is returned.
PDU mode The PDU-mode send command is:
+CMGS=<length><CR>
<PDU data><CTRL+Z>

be given (i.e. SMSC address octets are excluded). The <pdu data> must be in
hexadecimal format (as specified for <pdu> on page 79) and given in one line.
The Sierra Wireless modem converts this coding into the actual octets of the
PDU. When the length octet of the SMSC address (given in the <pdu data>)
equals zero, the SMSC address set with command Service Centre Address
+CSCA (see page 93) is used.

below. If no PIN request is pending from the modem, the command returns an
error.
Certain types of password requests (SIM PUK or SIM PUK2) require a second
password <newpin>, which replaces the old PIN in the SIM card.
The +CPIN? command returns +CPIN: <code>, indicating which password is
required, if any:
<code>=READY
Modem is not waiting for a PIN.
<code>=SIM PIN
SIM password.
<code>=SIM PUK
SIM unblocking.
<code>=PH-SIM PIN
Password between modem and SIM card (anti-theft).
<code>=PH-SIM PUK
Unblocking password between modem SIM card (anti­
theft).
<code>=SIM PIN2
SIM password 2. (Only if preceding command was
acknowledged with +CME ERROR:17.)
<code>=SIM PUK2
SIM unblocking password 2. (Only if preceding command
was acknowledged with +CME ERROR:18.)
Change password
Sets a new password for the facility lock function defined by the Facility Lock
+CLCK command (see page 74).
+CPWD=? returns a list of pairs which show the available facilities and the
maximum length of their passwords:
+CPWD: <fac>,<passlength>
<fac>,<passlength>
etc.
Supported values
The +CPWD command generally supports the same values of <fac> shown for
the +CLCK command (page 74). However, +CPWD also supports the additional
value <fac>=P2 for the SIM PIN2, and does not support <fac>=PS, PN, PU, PP,
or PC.
<oldpassword> and <newpassword> are both strings, defining the old password
and the new one which is to replace it.
<passlength> is an integer showing the maximum number of characters
permitted for a password for the <fac> shown.

Reissue last AT command
Re-executes the last command string entered. The last-executed command
remains in the command buffer until AT is entered again or the modem is reset

A
Answer incoming call (or GPRS network request)
When operating in GSM voice, or CSD mode, ATA instructs the
modem to immediately go off-hook and attempt to establish a connection
without waiting for a ring. This is used to answer an incoming call if the autoanswer status register (S0—see page 25) is disabled.
GSM mode
The command presumes a RING has been received. If the command is issued
without a RING, and the modem is in command state, the modem replies with
OK and remains in command state.
Once the RING arrives, the modem looks for carrier to negotiate the connection,
and either issues:
• CONNECT and enters data state; or
• NO CARRIER and remains in command state.
GPRS mode When operating in GPRS packet mode, the ATA command
answers a network request for a PDP context activation announced by the
unsolicited result code RING. The modem responds with CONNECT and enters
the V.25ter online data state to initiate a GPRS connection.
D**##[n]
Make GPRS connection
Establishes a connection using the specified profile. The !MPSETUP is used to
maintain profiles; up to three profiles are supported. (See page 56.)
The GPRS profile used in the connection is specified by n:
• <n>=0
Default profile. (Set by the !MPSETDFLT command.)
• <n>=1
Profile 1
• <n>=2
Profile 2
• <n>=3
Profile 3
The connection uses the PDP context settings assigned using +CGDCONT,
+CGQMIN, and +CGQREQ to the PDP Context Identifier 1. (That is, the <cid>
must be 1. D**## cannot be configured to use any other value for the <cid>.) In
order to establish a connection with specific QoS (Quality of Service) settings,
or header or data compression settings, the settings must be assigned to PDP
Context Identifier 1 (<cid>=1) using the +CGDCONT, +CGQMIN, and

GPRS mode When operating in GPRS packet mode, the ATH on-hook
command may be used to reject a network request for PDP context activation
announced by the unsolicited result code RING.
The modem responds with OK. If there is no outstanding connection request,
the modem responds with ERROR.
Note: This is an extension to the usage of the H command from the V.25ter
standard.

Description
O[0]
Switch from command state to data state
The 0 parameter (ATO0)
is the only one permitted.
It is optional and has no
effect on the command.
Switches modem to from online command state to online data state. The
modem responds with the normal CONNECT response codes (if enabled) as if
the connection were new.
If the connection cannot be established, a NO CARRIER or NO ANSWER
response results, as appropriate.
P
(ignored)
Pulse dialing
This command is provided for compatibility reasons; no action is taken by the
modem. Parameters are ignored.
Q[<n>]
Quiet—suppress result codes
Controls the return or suppression of result codes to the host computer. There
are two values for <n>:
• 0: Result codes are returned from the modem. Default and recommended.
• 1: Enable Quiet mode, suppressing result codes..
If <n>=0, the modem returns OK. If <n>=1, result codes are suppressed and
there is no response.
S<n>[=<x>]
S-Register Set/Query
S<n>?
Sets (or queries) the contents of the specified S-register <n> to the new value
<x>. Zeros are assumed where parameter values are omitted.

Reset modem to user-defined profile
The modem disconnects any active call, and then resets the command and
register parameters to the defaults stored in the non-volatile memory’s user
profile by the AT&W command (see page 24).

Status Registers
Some of these registers relate to the call progress timing at the
IWF (the interface between the GSM network and the PSTN)
with the PSTN connection. These are noted below using the

GSM mode
When operating in GSM voice or CSD mode,
the S0 status register is used to set the number of rings before
automatically answering a call—<n> is a numeric value
between 0 and 255 representing the number of rings before
pickup. A value of <n>=0 deactivates auto-answering.
0
(cont.)
GPRS mode When operating in GPRS packet mode, the
S0 status register can be used to set whether the modem
automatically accepts incoming PDP context activation
requests from the network.
• If <n>=0, the modem will not automatically accept a network
connection request.
• If <n>=1 or any other greater value, the modem will
automatically accept a connection request.
Note: ATS0=0 does not perform an automatic GPRS detach.
Inquiry

ATS0? returns the current setting of the register.
Command line termination character (usually <CR>)
Sets the standard end-of-line character used to indicate the end
of an AT command. This character is also used as the carriage
return character for framing responses and result codes in
command state. The default and standard line termination
character is the carriage return <CR> (ASCII 13).
4
Response formatting character (usually <LF>)
Sets the standard character sent by the modem to the host at
the end of a response or return code in command state. The
default and standard response-end character is the line feed
<LF> (ASCII 10).
5
Command line editing character (usually <BS>)
Sets the standard character used to backspace when editing on
the command line. The default and standard response-end
character is the backspace <BS> (ASCII 8).

This register denotes the wait time (between 2 and 10 seconds)
before a blind dial, with no dial tone detection. The default value
is <n>=2 seconds.
The value of ATS6 is used when the ATX command is set to 1
or 3. ATX settings of 2 and 4 enable dial tone detection and
disable blind dialing. Therefore, when X is set to 2 or 4, the
value of S6 is ignored.
7
Wait time for connection
This register sets the limit, between 1 and 255 seconds, for how
long the modem will wait for a carrier signal from a remote
modem before hanging up. The default value is <n>=50
seconds.
8
Length of comma pause
This command is provided for compatibility reasons; no action
is taken by the modem. Parameters are ignored.
10
Carrier detection and carrier loss delay
Specifies how long the carrier from a remote modem can be
absent before the modem disconnects (between 0 and 255
seconds). Longer delays allow temporary disruptions to the
carrier without disconnecting. Shorter delays detect dropped
carriers more efficiently when the connection is good.
The default value is <n>=15 seconds. A setting of <n>=255
causes the modem to disable carrier detection and presume
the carrier is always present.
