Telephony Stack Recommendation


Hi All,
I am new to Telephony stack and hoping to get some advice on a stack for telit based 4G modem. So far I found 2 stacks
1) ModemManager from Freedesktop and
2) Ofono

Are there more open source telephony stacks? Any recommendation?

Basically I am after a stack which is mature and hopefully well supported. I am ok with compiling and going through code if needed.

Actually I couldn't find any dedicated forums for Telephony stacks. I am hoping somebody here would be able to help.
I am running Ubuntu (with custom modified kernel), if that makes any difference.

Many Thanks,
Tony

You might be chasing rainbows for that one.

Android is the only open-source system I know that is used by cellphone OEMs and as far as I know it relies on some propriety components for it's telephony stack. (each OEM uses there own)

Even if you find an Android compatible telephony stack, getting it to work with Gnu based distros would be challenging.

Perhaps you could elaborate why you actually need a telephony stack and what you intend to accomplish with it? That will likely get more useful responses from a larger group.

Basically I have got Telit based modem. I want to get it to work with my Ubuntu laptop. So far I found ofono use OEM based plugins as you suggested and can be found Opensource. So far I am liking ModemManager because of the level of documentation.

Okay then, do you just want to use it to connect to the Internet? If so, then Ubuntu already has all the bits and pieces you need for the vast majority of 3G/GSM modems. All we need to do is make sure that Ubuntu 'sees' your modem.

How is the modem connected? Internal or external?
What model is it? (Telit have several)
Does it use a SIM card?
Which service provider are you using?

P.S: There is software for text messaging, but it's rather finicky and unreliable in my experience.
