ModemManager in your phone

ModemManager provides a general purpose WWAN management stack, which has served as default WWAN management system for standard GNU/Linux distributions for the last 10 years, primarily focused on providing data connectivity to laptops and desktops. In addition to that, different teams building phones with FOSS operating systems have also considered ModemManager as a good tool to take responsibility for the full data and voice call management in phones, primarily because it supports a broad range of devices and systems: not only standalone WWAN modules, but also WWAN stacks integrated in Qualcomm SoCs.

This talk will provide an overview of the current state of integration of ModemManager in phones, and what's expected in future releases.
