cellular—Configure a cellular module on a vEdge router (on vEdge routers only).

The firmware installed in the router's cellular modules is specific to each service provider and determines which profile properties you can configure. You can modify the attributes for a profile only if allowed by the service provider.

To associate a cellular profile with a cellular interface, use the interface cellular profile configuration command.
