Description and Notes

From @shayne on GitHub:

I’ve pulled together the hardware and software required to run the SIM8200EA (8200) modem on a CM4 platform using the Waveshare CM4-DUAL-ETH-4G/5G-BASE (Base Board).



  • OpenWrt 21.02.3 - custom compiled with qmi_wwan_simcom 8200 specific driver support
  • Standard QMI connection via OpenWrt proto (i.e. not using simcom-cm dialer binary)
  • Modified qmi_wwan.c (adds support for 8200, ✅ using in my setup)
  • SIMCOM provided driver: qmi_wwan_simcom.c
  • Kernel config patch


  • I’ve experienced speeds in excess of 600mbps down and 400mbps up! example speedtest
  • Connection has maintained for several days now, seems solid?

See the GitHub issue for more information and updates.
