Proposal: WebMobileConnectionManager API for Multi-SIM

Currently B2G supports a single SIM architecture. This proposal wants to extend it for supporting multi-SIMs. In multi-SIM device, each service is independent and has it own status and information. Here we introduce multiple nsIDOMMozMobileConnection objects architecture. One nsIDOMMozMobileConnection object is binded to a service. You can use serviceId as index to get corresponding service object.

Web API

The change is quite simple -- navigator.mozMobileConnection becomes an array of nsIDOMMozMobileConnection obect, i.e. navigator.mozMobileConnections. The length of the array is actually the number of services provided on a device. And the index of the array is used as 'serviceId.'

We don't modify the existing interface, like nsIDOMMozMobileConnection, nsIDOMMozMobileConnectionInfo ...etc, to minimize the coding effort of gaia.

interface nsIMozNavigatorMobileConnectionManager: nsISupports
{
  // An array of nsIDOMMozMobileConnection.
  readonly attribute jsval mozMobileConnections;
};

interface nsIDOMMozMobileConnection : nsIDOMEventTarget
{
  const long ICC_SERVICE_CLASS_VOICE = (1 << 0);
  ....

  readonly attribute DOMString lastKnownNetwork;
  readonly attribute DOMString lastKnownHomeNetwork;
  readonly attribute nsIDOMMozMobileConnectionInfo voice;
  readonly attribute nsIDOMMozMobileConnectionInfo data;
  readonly attribute DOMString networkSelectionMode;
  readonly attribute DOMString iccId; // The iccId of the icc card which is inserted in this client.
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getNetworks();
  nsIDOMDOMRequest selectNetwork(in nsIDOMMozMobileNetworkInfo network);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest selectNetworkAutomatically();
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setRoamingPreference(in DOMString mode);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getRoamingPreference();
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setVoicePrivacyMode(in bool enabled);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getVoicePrivacyMode();
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest sendMMI(in DOMString mmi);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest cancelMMI();
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallForwardingOption(in nsIDOMMozMobileCFInfo CFInfo);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallForwardingOption(in unsigned short reason);
   
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallBarringOption(in jsval option);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallBarringOption(in jsval option);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest changeCallBarringPassword(in jsval info);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallWaitingOption(in bool enabled);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallWaitingOption();
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallingLineIdRestriction(in unsigned short clirMode);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallingLineIdRestriction();
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest exitEmergencyCbMode();
  
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval onvoicechange;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval ondatachange;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval onussdreceived;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval ondataerror;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval oncfstatechange;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval onemergencycbmodechange;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval onotastatuschange;
  [implicit_jscontext] attribute jsval oniccchange; // Icc card is inserted or removed.
};
interface nsIDOMMozMobileConnectionInfo : nsISupports
{
  readonly attribute DOMString state;
  readonly attribute bool connected;
  readonly attribute bool emergencyCallsOnly;
  readonly attribute bool roaming;
  readonly attribute nsIDOMMozMobileNetworkInfo network;
  readonly attribute DOMString type;
  readonly attribute jsval signalStrength;
  readonly attribute jsval relSignalStrength;
  readonly attribute nsIDOMMozMobileCellInfo cell;
};

...

Use Case

Listen Connection Status

  • Current B2G (Single SIM)
     var conn = window.navigator.mozMobileConnection;
  • Multi-SIMs
     // Listen connection status for specific service
     var conn = window.navigator.mozMobileConnections[serviceId];

Once the mobile connection object is obtained, the follow work is the same. We can get notification when voice/data connection change occurs in specific SIM.

     if (conn) {
       conn.addEventListener('voicechange', this);
       conn.onvoicechange = function onvoicechange() {
         ...
       }
       
       conn.addEventListener('datachange', this);
       conn.ondatachange = function ondatachange() {
         ...
       }
     }

And also you can get total number of service via

     var numberOfServices = window.navigator.mozMobileConnections.length;

Internal API and Implementation

Add clientId in the interface of nsIMobileConnectionProvider.idl and change the implementation of getVoiceConnectionInfo, getDataConnectionInfo, and getNetworkSelectionMode.

interface nsIMobileConnectionListener : nsISupports
{
  void notifyVoiceChanged();
  void notifyDataChanged();
  void notifyUssdReceived(in DOMString message, in boolean sessionEnded);
  void notifyDataError(in DOMString message);
  void notifyCFStateChange(in boolean success, in unsigned short action, in unsigned short reason, in DOMString number, in unsigned short timeSeconds, in unsigned short serviceClass);
  void notifyEmergencyCbModeChanged(in boolean active, in unsigned long timeoutMs);
  void notifyOtaStatusChanged(in DOMString status);
  void notifyIccChanged();
};
interface nsIMobileConnectionProvider: nsISupports
{
  void registerMobileConnectionMsg(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIMobileConnectionListener listener);
  void unregisterMobileConnectionMsg(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIMobileConnectionListener listener);
  
  nsIDOMMozMobileConnectionInfo getVoiceConnectionInfo(in unsigned long clientId);
  nsIDOMMozMobileConnectionInfo getDataConnectionInfo(in unsigned long clientId);
  DOMString getNetworkSelectionMode(in unsigned long clientId);
  DOMString getIccId(in unsigned long clientId);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getNetworks(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest selectNetwork(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in nsIDOMMozMobileNetworkInfo network);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest selectNetworkAutomatically(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setRoamingPreference(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in DOMString mode);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getRoamingPreference(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setVoicePrivacyMode(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in bool enabled);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getVoicePrivacyMode(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest sendMMI(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in DOMString mmi);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest cancelMMI(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallForwardingOption(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in unsigned short reason);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallForwardingOption(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in nsIDOMMozMobileCFInfo CFInfo);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallBarringOption(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in jsval option);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallBarringOption(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in jsval option);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest changeCallBarringPassword(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in jsval info);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallWaitingOption(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in bool enabled);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallWaitingOption(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest setCallingLineIdRestriction(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window, in unsigned short clirMode);
  nsIDOMDOMRequest getCallingLineIdRestriction(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
  
  nsIDOMDOMRequest exitEmergencyCbMode(in unsigned long clientId, in nsIDOMWindow window);
};

The data structures of voiceConnectionInfo, dataConnectionInfo, and networkSelectionMode may need to change to be an array format in RILContentHelper.js for storing the information among different SIM.

 // nsIRILContentHelper
 voiceConnectionInfo:  [],
 dataConnectionInfo:   [],
 networkSelectionMode: [],

Proposal: Architecture

Current Architecture

This is the current architecture supporting a single SIM card. Only one mobile connection to handle all events for Network/Data functions.

MobileConnection Architecture

Proposal Architecture for Multi-SIM

This is the proposal architecture supporting the multi-SIM card.

MobileConnection becomes an array of nsIDOMMozMobileConnection obect. API users can use 'serviceId' as an index to access corresponding service object.
