FreeBSD is a free computer operating system based on BSD UNIX originally. Many IT companies, like DeployIS is using it to provide an up-to-date, stable operating system.

ufoma - USB mobile phone support



      ufoma - USB mobile phone support


      To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
      kernel configuration file:
            device ufoma
            device ucom
      Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
      following line in loader.conf(5):


      The ufoma driver provides support for USB mobile phone terminals in the
      subset of the Mobile Computing Promotion Consortium USB Implementation
      Guideline, which is adopted by FOMA, the NTT DoCoMo 3G system, terminal.
      These are partly like CDC ACM model based modems, which are supported by
      umodem(4), but the ufoma driver recognizes a specific USB descriptor that
      describes its role and interface structure, and it will negotiate its
      role when the device is open.  They support a regular AT command set and
      the commands can either be multiplexed with the data stream or handled
      through separate pipes.  In the latter case the AT commands have to be
      given on a device separate from the data device.
      The device is accessed through the ucom(4) driver which makes it behave
      like a tty(4).


      These devices often have a few interface sets and these interfaces have
      their role, sometimes multiplexed.  These roles are identified with the
      following sysctl MIBs:
              The modes which are supported by the interface.
              Current mode of the interface.
              Mode to transit when the device is open next.
      The modes are as follows:
      modem   Accepts AT commands and go and pass packet communication data.
              Accepts AT commands but it does not pass data.
      obex    Accepts OBEX frame which is used to exchange telephone book, etc.
      vendor1, vendor2
              Vendor specific data may be passed.
              When an interface is recognized by the system but not used, the
              interface will be set to this mode.
              When an interface is not yet negotiated, the interface is in this


      Devices supported by the ufoma driver include:
            SHARP FOMA SH902i
            KYOCERA PHS AH-K3001V (a.k.a Kyopon)
            SANYO Vodafone3G V801SA
      Specification can be found at:
      tty(4), ucom(4), umodem(4), usb(4)


      The ufoma driver appeared in FreeBSD 7.0, partly derived from the
      umodem(4) code.


      Interfaces with multiplexed commands and data and interfaces with com‐
      mands only are supported.


Based on BSD UNIX
FreeBSD is an advanced operating system for x86 compatible (including Pentium and Athlon), amd64 compatible (including Opteron, Athlon64, and EM64T), UltraSPARC, IA-64, PC-98 and ARM architectures. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large team of individuals. Additional platforms are in various stages of development.
