Thank you for the response.

I am integrating an LTE modem, that supports MBIM, with a linux host (OpenWRT) and need the ability to configure it and monitor modem statistics (which will include unsolicited events) using a user process.
So would you recommend using Modem Manager?

ModemManager (version 1.7.0) currently gives this warning and does not start when I try to start if from the shell -
[5337]: <warn>  Could not acquire the 'org.freedesktop.ModemManager1' service name
[5337]: <info>  ModemManager is shut down

Also, I couldn't find an option in mmcli to send MBIM_CID_DEVICE_SERVICE_SUBSCRIBE_LIST.

The problem with unsolicited events and mbimcli is that the mbimcli actions are all independent from each other, and the port may get closed in between mbimcli actions, so there wouldn't be any process waiting to receive and process them.

ModemManager, instead, keeps the MBIM port open and configures unsolicited indications just fine with the MBIM_CID_DEVICE_SERVICE_SUBSCRIBE_LIST set command.

What's your use case?
