Troubleshoot Sierra Wireless AirCard 880E for GSM on srx210 device

[ Edited ]

Hi Everybody

I have one problem with configuring 3G Modem  card (Sierra Wireless AirCard 880E for GSM). I configure as follow:

interfaces {
    cl-0/0/8 {
        modem-options {
            init-command-string ATS0=2;
        }
        dialer-options {
            pool 1 priority 255;
        }
        cellular-options {
            gsm-options {
                select-profile profile-id 1;
            }
        }
    }
    dl0 {
        description 3g-wireless;
        encapsulation ppp;
        unit 0 {
            ppp-options {
                chap {
                    default-chap-secret "$9$VNwgJ5T39tO"; ## SECRET-DATA
                    local-name mms;
                    passive;
                }
            }
            dialer-options {
                pool 1;
                dial-string 99;
            }       
        }
    }
}

routing-options {
    static {
        route 0.0.0.0/0 next-hop dl0.0;
    }
}

...

But when I use show interface terse command, I see that cl-0/0/8 interfaces is as follow

Interface               Admin Link Proto    Local                 Remote

cl-0/0/8                 down  up  
cl-0/0/8.0              up       down
dl0                         up       up  
dl0.0                      up       up

I don't know why my cl-0/0/8 is not up. Please help me to overcome this problem.

Thanks.
