No GPRS connection with some devices
« on: October 12, 2018, 09:33:46 AM »
Hi,

I installed yate and yateBTS on Debian sistem with a Bladerf x115 and i can easily call and send sms, with bot and with 2 device in the same network (I'm in NiPC MODE).
I can connect with no problem iphone 5s (apple SOC) and Huawei (Qualcomm SOC) in GPRS but i cannot get any connection with my Honor (Kirin Soc) smartphone, i thing that is something related to the different modem because similar post
here : https://forum.yate.ro/index.php?topic=1927.0
and here : https://forum.yate.ro/index.php?topic=1843.msg5990#msg5990
but i have no responce to my questions.

On attachment you can find the GGSN and SGSN log and a wireshark pcap, both related to honor smartphone connection.

Versions:
Code: [Select]
Yate 6.0.1 devel1 r6313
Code: [Select]
bladeRF-cli version:        1.6.1-2018.08-release-1-ppabionic
libbladeRF version:         2.0.2-2018.08-release-1-ppabionic

Firmware version:           2.2.0-git-3d38fac2
FPGA version:               0.1.2

I'm trying to go deep into the problem, i fond some difference in my devices and i wanna show to you.

In the GGSN log for the honor device i got a persistent loop blocked into "RAU"

and it goes for ever, so the sgsn dosn't get the ROUTINGAREACOMPLETE.

I can see the same on wireshark :

The only differences i can see are :
Code: [Select]
MsRaCapability[GSM_E]=( GPRSMultislotClass=12 GPRSExtendedDynamicAllocationCapability=1 GERANFeaturePackage1=1)
 MsRaCapability[GSM_1800]=( GPRSMultislotClass=12 GPRSExtendedDynamicAllocationCapability=1 GERANFeaturePackage1=1)
 MsRaCapability[GSM_850]=( GPRSMultislotClass=12 GPRSExtendedDynamicAllocationCapability=1 GERANFeaturePackage1=1)
for the HONOR device and

Code: [Select]
MsRaCapability[GSM_E]=( GPRSMultislotClass=10 GPRSExtendedDynamicAllocationCapability=1)
 MsRaCapability[GSM_850]=( GPRSMultislotClass=10 GPRSExtendedDynamicAllocationCapability=1)
 MsRaCapability[GSM_1800]=( GPRSMultislotClass=10 GPRSExtendedDynamicAllocationCapability=1)
for the huawei device.

I thing that GPRSMultislotClass is not a problem but GERANFeaturePackage1 may be a problem cause searching in the source code i found only this:
Code: [Select]
// Extended dynamic mode means # channels up > # channels down.
bool MSInfo::msCanUseExtendedUplink()
{
// The Blackberry and iphone set the GeranFeaturePackI bit, but
// the danged Multitech modems truncate the MS capabilities before
// the GeranFeaturePackI bit, even though they do support extended uplink TBF
// They are multislot class 12, so if the MS multislot class > 10, assume ok.
return gL2MAC.macUplinkPersist > 0 && this->msIsRegistered()
&& (this->sgsnGetGeranFeaturePackI(this->msTlli) ||
    this->sgsnGetMultislotClass(this->msTlli) > 10);
}

Thank you for the outputs John

To establish the GPRS connection the UE needs to send GPRS attach request.
In the traces , the UE is not sending this message when its expected to see

Please see this picture for working GPRS in NiPC lenovo mobile
https://imgur.com/a/MA6ea6h

You can use the wireshark filter: gsm_a.dtap.msg_gmm_type  in the traces
This picture from working mobile with the filter
https://imgur.com/a/yvj83SW

I was wondering if you can share with me datasheet for the modem you are using ?

Let's split the problem:

(1) for telit we have this kind of behavior

Device:
GT864_QUAD with modem GE865_QUAD with virmware revision 10.xxxx.03

Code: [Select]
https://www.telic.de/en/downloads/downloads-m2m-terminals
https://www.telic.de/Load/Telemetry/M2M_Terminals/GT864_QUAD/EN_UserManual_GT864-QUAD-PY.pdf
https://www.telic.de/Load/Telemetry/M2M_Terminals/GT864_QUAD/EN_Datasheet_GT864-Quad.pdf

the problem is when i try to activate context i got error.

Code: [Select]
AT+CGACT?
ERROR

and when i try to use it in a "normal" network i got full working gprs.
But now i'm going to retry and got more log with error reporting and many try of context activation.

(2) With that filter in wireshark i see that honor device sent a GPRS suspension and then go to RAU loop, see attach

EDIT:
added telit at command log + wireshark log + yate-vvvvv log, note that every time i try to activate gprs with at command i have about a mitues of lag on putty and i got 3101 error on terminal and :GSM RLC/MAC: PACKET_DOWNLINK_DUMMY_CONTROL_BLOCK (37) (Downlink)

Hello John

For the problem with Honor mobile:
It has been isolated to be MS issue


For the problem with telit

I wish to have more outputs that is organized differently  , please

1. from the telnet session to BTS
mbts config Control.GSMTAP.GSM on
mbts config Control.GSMTAP.GPRS on
sniffer on

2. Make TCP dump
tcpdump -i any udp -w <file_name>.pcap

3. From telit , the following at commands
- Prepare and register outouts
AT+CPIN?
AT+CGREG?
AT+COPS?
AT+CSQ
- Attach to the network
AT+cgatt=1
AT+CGDCONT=1,”IP”,”internet”
at+cgdcont?
AT+CGACT=1,1

4. The file
 ggsn.log


Wish you a nice day

John

Hi Nour,
thanks for your reply

i'm not able to get sgsn log, i don't know why because in my conf i have

Code: [Select]

[sgsn]
;Add layer-3 messages to the GGSN.Logfile, if any.
Debug=yes


link for attach:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y_CUePvmYDgTUyXGXQg_EiABZ8Q3hG9S/view?usp=sharing



tell me if you need more log o more output

Hello John,

The MS is registered to the network  and I can see the registration going ok on the wireshark capture.

IMSI            MSISDN
--------------- ---------------
222102402326785   2326785

What I noticed, the output of CREG is 5 which is registered / roaming.
-> is this the scenario you are trying to achieve?

On the other hand, I was checking for the tilet error message while triggering the attach and I found if there is a mismatch with auto attach command you will have this error message, can you please check:
https://m2msupport.net/m2msupport/atautoatt-gprs-auto-attach/
https://www.telit.com/technical-forum/product-specific/gm862-quadpygps/operation-not-allowed/

Let me know,
Nour

nope, i would have gprs connection, telit registers to gsm i can have calls and sms but no gprs connection.

ty for this indication but i think that this is not the problem, the telit should be connected instead i cannot navigate.
BTW i'll try to disable autoattach later and update this message, stay tuned.

ty for your reply

Hello John

After checking further, I believe the modem is using SIM with different network identity than 00101 that is configured in the BTS.
To solve this:
1. Try SIM with the network identity 00101
2. Enable data roaming in the modem.

Hello John,

Having the MS in home network or roaming network depends on both the SIM and the network
if the network identifier matches  , the MS will believe its connected to its home network.

In your situation, there is a mismatch , so the telit modem thinks its in roaming mode and GPRS for roaming needs to be enabled with AT commands.
Like in mobile phones, when you switch to roaming , you need to activate data roaming option from the settings.
As when you check registration from AT , you can see it thinks its in roaming  (5).

Thanks,
Nour

Hi John,

You are welcome  :)

Can you please try:
AT+WGPRS=<mode>[, [<parameter>] [,<parameter2>]
Mode 7: Automatic GPRS roaming inter-operator (the mobile equipment automatically reattaches itself to the network and reactivates its PDP context by changing the operator when reaching border areas. Only <class> is used.
<parameter>    Requested operation for <mode> (except for <mode>=4 and 8)
0 Disabled
2 Enabled

Then try to register and attach again.

Thanks,
Nour
