I am using it personally. I am in the first step setting up The system with
Ubuntu 12.04 Server. I tried with CentOS. I work ussually with this distro,
but i could not make it work because of my lack of understaning this gsmopen
Yesterday i made it work with this:
Ubuntu 12.04 Server AMD64
Huawey E169
Install all the Libs i found in the freeswitch wiki (all)
I set up for the time been just only one dongle. ttyUSB1, ttyUSB2
Codec: G711
I made this dialplan:
<extension name="dongle">

    <condition field="network_addr" expression="xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"/>

    <condition field="destination_number" expression="^34(\d+)$">   /*
Because Spain Mobile */

        <action application="set" data="continue_on_fail=yes"/>

        <action application="set" data="hangup_after_bridge=true"/>

        <action application="set" data="sip_ignore_remote_cause=true"/>

        <action application="set" data="proxy_media=true"/>

        <action application="bridge" data="gsmopen/gsm01/$1"/>    /* Default
config i have, changing just only tty ports */

        <action application="hangup" data="NORMAL_CIRCUIT_CONGESTION"/>



My Experience:
Calling with G711: no delay, audio quality same like with your own mobile
(perfect), even with network operator low coverage were i am.
Calling with G729: little delay (sensible). Probably i had the system not
very well implemented.
A very important thing we did: 
We try unlocking the dongle. We did it. With every system we test, no
working. We soldered pinouts to a unlocking device. Reinstall complete
firmware with this device. Then from this factory firmware we unlock it and
activate the voice.
I am experiencing with it. In my opinion for the time been works very nice.
I need to stress the system with 8 dongles and live traffic to check all the
issues that can happend.
During this week i will do so many test. i will give you feed back.

Asunto: Re: [Freeswitch-users] E169 question

I was wondering if I could ask you some dongle questions.  I've been
testing out Gsmopen with an E160.    Do you have any experience with
that one and why do you prefer E169s?     

I personally have not. They were, however, recommended to me by a friend who
has experience with Huawei-brand dongles. 

I'm in NYC.  I might be
interested in a group buy, but I'm still trying to figure out if it's
going to reliable for clients.

I currently cannot verify anything about the Huawei devices. The group buy
actually fell through, and I was planning on getting one or two to play
with. If others are interested in doing a group buy I'd be more than happy
to facilitate.

In your setup, what is your general purpose for having them in production? I
planned on using a few for emergency backup in case the Internet or
something else went kaput. With the advent of cell phones these days, it's
really not an issue now. Otherwise, to me it's a toy. Now if you we're in
Europe, there are advantages to using gsmopen and a dongle with a few
different mobile providers to get free or reduced rate calling (within the
same network). 

I'm CC'ing the Freeswitch users mailing list, in hopes that someone can
better answer your questions. If you haven't already, subscribe to the ML by

Good luck in your future endeavors, and welcome to the wonderful world of

I'm waiting on an antenna at the
moment....I suspect that's my current problem.

Thanks in advance!
