Hello,

Does anyone know if there are any plans or if work is being done to
add a proper cellular modem layer in zephyr?
Sure: https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/pull/6344 and I know
Nordic also works on support for their nRF91.

I know I could do this
at the app layer, but I thought adding this into the OS would provide
a better solution.  For example, the cell module I plan to use has an
IP stack embedded in it.  To open a socket on the cell module, AT
commands are used.  The goal would be to use the zephyr networking
layer to open sockets which then sends the proper AT command to cell
module over UART.  This would allow seamless use of high level APIs
like MQTT, etc.

Thanks,

Ryan
