Dial-up Networking

【Note】:You must use a SIM card with GPRS networking enabled and haven't out of service.

Dial-up Networking with Windows PC

  • Connect the SIM7600G-H 4G HAT (B) with the 4G SIM card to your win10 PC. After installing the driver, the PC will automatically recognize the module.
  • If Windows PC still cannot access the Internet, you need to start NDIS dial-up manually.

Open the SIM7600 AT port and send the command:

AT$QCRMCALL=1,1

And then press 'Enter'. At this time, NDIS dialing will take effect, and the PC can connect to the network.

  • If you still can’t connect automatically, you can use PPP dial-up. The operation steps are as follows:

GPS debugging

  • Plugin the GPS antenna and place the 4G HAT in an open outdoor (note that it cannot be tested in rainy weather). It takes about 1 minute to receive the positioning signal after power-on;
SIM7600G-H-4G-HAT-B-details-9.jpg

The test commands and screenshots are as follows:

AT+CGPS=1	       //Open GPS
AT+CGPSINFO          //Print GPS information to the serial port
AT+CGPS=0          //Close GPS

Make calls and answer

  • Insert the SIM card, connect the LTE antenna and connect the USB interface of SIM7600E-H 4G HAT to PC, Then press the PWRKEY to power on the boardl
  • Check whether the indicators blink correctly (PWR's and NET's flashes)
  • Send AT commands as bellow:
Commands Description Return
AT+CNUM Phone number (only supported by some SIM cards) +CNUM OK
AT+CSDVC AT+CSDVC=1: Handset output
AT+CSDVC=3: Speaker output
OK
AT+CLVL=? Check volume level OK
AT+CLVL=2 Volume level set to 2 OK
ATD<phone_number>; Make calls OK
AT+CHUP Hang up call OK
AT+CLIP=1 Phone ring OK
ATA Answer call OK
Sim7600CE-5.png

Voice output mode and volume adjustment

AT+CSDVC=1 		//Switch to earphone
AT+CSDVC =3 	        //Switch to speaker
AT+CLVL =?		//Query the volume range. If it returns +CLVL: (0-5), it means that the volume is adjustable from 0 to 5
AT+CLVL=2     	        //Set the volume to 2, return to OK

Answer the phone

Display the serial port of incoming call: RING
Send "ATA"                  //Answer the call
Send "AT+CHUP"               //Hang up the call

Audio parameter debugging

AT+CACDBFN=?
+CACDBFN: (Handset_cal.acdb,Handset_tianmai.acdb)	// It is recommended to consider setting this set of parameters
OK
  • In the initialization phase of the module startup, before making a call, add the following
AT^PWRCTL=0,1,3		// Improve TDD noise effect
OK
  • During the establishment of a voice call
VOICE CALL:BEGIN      // Module call establishment and execution to improve call effect
AT+CECM=1        //Echo suppression processing
OK
AT+CECH=0x500       //Improve the volume effect of the mobile phone
OK

Send the massage

  • 1. Plug the SIM card, connect the LTE antenna and connect the USB interface of the 4G HAT to PC, and power on the device.
  • 2. Check whether the indicators blink correctly: the PWR indicator is always on, and the NET indicator is flashing.
  • 3. Send AT commands as bellow:
AT+CMGF=1     //Set the massage mode to TEXT;
  • 4.Enter AT+CMGS="phone number" and then press <Enter> to set the recipient's mobile phone number, then this command will return: ">". And then you can enter the content to be sent, such as "Send message test!", and don't need to check 'AddCrLf'. After editing the message, send the information in HEX format, enter 1A in the send box, and then click SEND. After sending successfully, the module will return +CMGS: 15. You can see in the picture below:

【Note】: 1A is the key value of "CTRL+Z", which is used to tell the module to perform the sending operation. You can also send 1B that is "ESC'" to cancel the current operation.

Receive the massage

  • 1. Send a message with your phone, such as "This is a receive test for SIM7600X!" to the module.
  • 2. When receiving the information, the serial port will automatically report the information, "SM", 20, which means there are 20 messages in the SM, and the message just sent is the 20th message.
  • 3. Read the massage:
AT+CMGR=20     //Read the 20th information (AT+CMGL="ALL" means to read all the information);
  • 4. Delete the massage:
AT+CMGD=20
  • 5. Convert the displayed information into a text through a code converter
