Establishing connections to multiple PDPs simultaneously with MBIM

Per specification MBIM allows you to have up to 256 simultanous data connections IIRC.

You can use the command line interface for mbimcli or even better modemmanager to allocate simultanous connections. Then you need to do vlan-tagging etc on the "ethernet device".

It is kinda complex but doable.

One operator I've used (Verizon Wireless), apparently requires simultaneous connection to one APN (vzwims) and another APN (vzwinternet) to enable full Internet access (the modem automatically connects to vzwims as it is the one that the SIM designates for auto-registration). I've not been able to see it work properly with just the vzwinternet APN yet. I did this with a different modem that uses NCM/AT commands, but I'd like to know if this is possible with MBIM. It didn't appear obvious in ModemManager or mbimcli that it was possible.
