Dear all,

I was wondering if there is any plan to add some level of integration
between ModemManager and wwan_hwsim (e.g. expose interfaces created by
wwan_hwsim (
to ModemManager - not sure if this is the right approach though).

I recently added wwan_hwsim to Mininet-WiFi
(even though I still can't use it as I intend) and I think I could
emulate LTE/5G with

Nowadays I can successfully use mac80211_hwsim and mac802154_hwsim for
WiFi and IEEE 802.15.4, respectively, and it would be really great to
have wwan_hwsim working with some level of integration with user space
tools such as ModemManager.
