Added new modems models to Proxysmart

Recently I have added new modems models to my 4g proxy farm software Proxysmart (click), in particular Quectel family and ZTE MF79 and ZTE MF971. For each, it is possible to read SMS, and reset IP.

Those are new ZTE models that the cell operators start selling to the customers. Their WEB API is pretty the same as of previous ZTE models, except one thing. It requires authentication and hassling with cookies and tokens encryption. So it took some time to reverse its API.

Those are very promising, because they from the beginning work in NCM mode, yet they have awesome open API documentation, you have full control of almost every aspect of them. Yet it is possible to change their IMEI, which is useful for bypassing cell operators restrictions of tethering.
