Several initialization functions must be called through the RPC channel
to bring up the 7360. Without this initialization the modem is not
functional beyond responding to simple AT commands. After initialization
through this interface the modem works as expected.

Because of this, the 7360 is currently nonfunctional beyond responding
to a limited set of AT commands. As for the 7560, my understanding is that
it is currently functional, and this interface simply supplements the MBIM
interface.

This is the only name I've seen it referred to by. I think XMMRPC/xmmrpc
will have to work.
