MDMA: Mobile Data Monitoring Access.
Aplikasi yang digunakan untuk memonitor penggunaan bandwidth internet kamu.
Cara kerjanya sama seperti Mobil client yang lain (Mobile connect, mobile partner)

Fitur2 di dalamnya:
- Mendeteksi kekuatan signal
- Bisa USSD

Backup! : MDMA (Direct Link)

Signal group
On the left is the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) in dBm, measured between -113dBm and -51dBm.
Next Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC) of the operator to which your modem is registered.
Next is the operator's long alphanumeric name. Depending on device and SIM card, this information might not be available.
On the right is the Radio Access Technology; GPRS, EDGE, 3G, HSDPA, HSUPA or HSD+UPA (High Speed Downlink and Uplink).
It is normal for the HSxPA indicators to only appear while data is being transmitted and while the connection is idle, 3G is displayed.
Below this is a bar graph indicating the signal strength.
The next line of information is information from the current cellular tower; the Location Area Code, the Radio Network Controller Identifier (RNC ID), the Cell Identifier and checkboxes indicating whhether the modem is currently registered and roaming.
Recent Huawei modems also provide SNR values but it is not clear what they represent. Further information here:
Further information on signal strength (RSSI):
Data Counters group (Huawei devices only)
The data transmitted and received in the current and last session is shown here.
You can track your total usage here as well.  The totals are stored in a file called 'usage.bin' located in the 'Common AppData' folder on your computer (normally C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\MDMA in Win2K/XP, or C:\AppData\MDMA in Vista/Win7).
The 'Reset Session' button zeroes the current session data counters and adds to the totals, useful if you want to see exactly how much bandwidth a particular operation uses.  The 'Reset Total' button zeroes the totals, you can use this when you top-up or get a new data bundle or on your contract billing day.
Data Transfer Speed group (Huawei devices only)
Here you can see your current upload and download speeds as well as the highest peak recorded.  There is also a 10 second moving average which shows the average upload and download speed over the last 10 seconds.  There are reset buttons for the peaks and the averages, these do not affect the data counters.  The negotiated QoS is also indicated here; this can vary according to your data plan, your modem and even the particular tower you are connected to.
Connection Type group
Here you can switch your connection type between GPRS/EDGE Only, GPRS/EDGE Preferred, 3G Only, or 3G Preferred.  This does not reset the card and you can do this and stay online, provided you have coverage of the signal type you requested.  For example you could switch from 3G to GPRS/EDGE to capture cellular broadcasts and then switch back to 3G.  This function works much better on Huawei cards; some older Option and Novatel cards or drivers sometimes require the card and/or your computer to be restarted before you can use them again.
APN group
You can view and set your default APN here, much easier than using a modem initialization string.
USSD Commands group
You can enter USSD commands here, these are commands in the form *123# that are normally entered on your mobile phones's keypad.
Clicking on 'USSD Help' will display a brief listing of some USSD commands offered by your operator (if available).
Sending a USSD command creates a session, some USSD services are billable, when you are finished, click the End Session button.
USSD commands that don't require any further input automatically end the session, in which case the End Session remains greyed out.
You can send multiple USSD commands sepeated by commas, for example: *111#,1,6 for Vodacom pre-paid data bundle balance.
MDMA will wait for a response before sending the next command.
Cellular Broadcast Messages group
Received cellular broadcast messages such as cell info, weather reports and tower info are shown here.
Not all operators provide 3G cell broadcasts, you might need to switch your device in GPRS/EDGE Only mode to receive them.
Start/Stop Logging
This function logs signal strength, connection type, LAC, Cell ID and cellular broadcast messages to a comma-seperated-values (CSV) file.  The signal strength is recorded in its raw format, as a number from 0 to 31 or 99 for no signal.  To convert this number to dBm, multiply it by 2 and subract -113.  To convert it to a percentage, multiply it by 100 and divide the result by 31. LAC and Cell IDs are recorded in hexadecimal.
Device Info
This interrogates your data device and SIM card, not all devices and SIM cards provide all the information.
Some information about the program.
Reset Device
This instructs your device to do a full reset, you should notice that the device disappears from your operating system and gets detected again.  Some older cards or drivers do not recover from a full reset gracefully and require you to restart your computer before they become operational again.
Connect / Disconnect
This allows you to connect and disconnect from the internet using a dial-up networking (RAS) connection.  When you click Connect,
MDMA executes 'rasphone.exe -d MDMA'.  Rasphone is a command line tool for dial-up networking which is part of your Windows installation.
You must have a dial-up networking connection named 'MDMA' otherwise you will see the following message:
'Error 623: The system could not find the phone book entry for this connection.'.
When you are online the button changes to Disconnect which disconnects the card in the proper manner and reset the data counters
for the current session and adds to the totals. (Huawei devices only)
Band Config
This allows you finer control of the bands used by the modem than the Connection Type described above.
Depending on your modem, you can enable and disable individual or groups of bands, e.g. GSM 900, UMTS 2100.
This is currently available for Huawei and Sierra Wireless modems. Band configuration of ZTE modems is currently disabled due to reports
of these modems not enabling UMTS 900 when set to default settings.  This can be enabled using a command line switch (at your own risk!).
Community support is available on MyBroadband forum in the following thread:
Command line options
