Note the "--no-open=x --no-close" in the mbim-network commands...

This will close the session after executing the command.  MBIM CLOSE
implies cleaning up all state and resetting the modem to its initial
state after boot.  I.e., this will tear down any active connection etc.

Actually it will probably close the connection *before* executing the
command as well, beause it sends and MBIM OPEN.  Which implies MBIM

You need to use the "--no-open" and "--no-close" switches if you want to
send commands related to an ongoing session without deleting that
