Marvel AT Tester V1.1: Simple tool to send AT Commands To Devices Via Comport

AT commands are used to control MODEMs. AT is the abbreviation for Attention. These commands come from Hayes commands that were used by the Hayes smart modems. The Hayes commands started with AT to indicate the attention from the MODEM. The dial-up and wireless MODEMs (devices that involve machine-to-machine communication) need AT commands to interact with a computer. These include the Hayes command set as a subset, along with other extended AT commands.

AT commands with a GSM/GPRS MODEM or mobile phone can be used to access the following information and services:

1.      Information and configuration pertaining to mobile device or MODEM and SIM card.

2.      SMS services.

3.      MMS services.

4.      Fax services.

5.      Data and Voice link over the mobile network.

The Hayes subset commands are called the basic commands and the commands specific to a GSM network are called extended AT commands.

What can AT commands be used for? 

AT commands enable you to control everything around the modem, device, and SIM:

  • Wake the device or put it in sleep mode
  • Configuration of power-saving modes 
  • Scan for and register to available networks and radio types
  • Get updates about network condition changes 
  • Read/send SMS and USSD
  • Send data (TCP/IP)
  • Get hardware and SIM information (IMEI, IMSI, etc.)
  • and much more 

To get started, we will talk about the syntax or the types of AT commands that can be sent to the modem.

List of AT commands:

The AT commands for both, the GSM module and the mobile phone, are listed below. Some of these commands may not be supported by all the GSM modules available. Also, there might be some commands which won’t be supported by some mobile handsets.
