I have tried: sudo modprobe usbserial vendor=0x1199 product=0x9051

[  191.236770] USB Serial deregistering driver Sierra USB modem

[  202.268482] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbserial_generic

No wwan or ttyUSB devices show up.

sudo apt-get install usb-modeswitch

usb_modeswitch -v 0x1199 -p 0x9051 -S 1 -W
Trying to send Sierra control message
USB error: error sending control message: Broken pipe
Error: sending Sierra control message failed (error -32). Aborting.

So far no way to start connectivity.

I also tried: [url]http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/ModemManager/SupportedDevices/[/url] sudo apt-get install modemmanager

which won't work since these are headless servers.

Any help would be appreciated.
