It looks like an explosive list.
First of all, there are several use cases for gsm+lte, which should
also be added.
I think the current proposal / implementation treats these as an
enumeration. But in the future we should be able to expand this API to
simply treat the values as a list, e.g. "lte,gsm" should be possible as
well. Along with maybe even "gsm,lte,umts", etc.
But then there will be a 5g to the list, and all possible
We do not yet support 5G, so lets cross that bridge when we come to it.
of technologies, and most likely there should be a split for LTE,
normalLTE, catM and NB-IoT, and all the possible combinations thereof.
I would prefer to have it as a vendor-specific extension, so that the
combinations can also be controlled at the model level.
You can do that already now. It is already possible to add whatever
vendor API / extensions you want in the individual modem driver.
