You probably already checked with oFono ml about the issue? Were there
any ideas of providing proper support?
Yes. Actually, Denis helped me to add support for the modem (Sierra MC73xx).
So now, I'm able to use it.

Unfortunately not really. The overall architecture is such that the
plugins detect and manage certain network technologies and report those
to ConnMan. One would need to create a very special plugin that'd
detect only these hand-made interfaces. Providing proper support in
oFono for handling these modems is the only future proof way dealing
Ok, thanks for the information.
