Notes:

1) [DEVICE] is given as the full path to the cdc-wdm character device, e.g.:
,/dev/cdc-wdm0/
2) The mbim-network script requires a profile to work. Unless explicitly specified with `--profile', the file is assumed to be available in the following path:
,/etc/mbim-network.conf/
3) The APN to use should be configured in the profile, in the following way (e.g. assuming APN is called 'internet'):
APN=internet
4) Optional APN user/password strings may be given in the following way:
APN_USER=user APN_PASS=password
5) If APN user/password is specified, the authentication protocol to use (one of PAP, CHAP or MSCHAPV2) must also be specified in the following way:
APN_AUTH=protocol
6) If you want to instruct the mbim-network script to use the mbim-proxy setup, you can do so by configuring the following line in the profile:
PROXY=yes
7) Once the mbim-network script reports a successful connection you still need to run a DHCP client on the associated WWAN network interface.
