Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Edison Breakout Board.
In order to enable USB modem support, you’ll need to build a custom Yocto Linux image. I suggest you to read this article:
Building Yocto Linux for Intel Edison with 3G USB modems support
There are also a couple of threads that may help you get a better understanding of the details of enabling USB modems support:
SSH access to edison connected via mobile internet 3g
Need 3G connection on Arduino board with Huawei E171
If you have any other question, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Have a nice day.

Building a custom image to that problem is like kill a mosquito with a rifle...
I get it working disablink HiLink, which was the element that has incompatibility ( i think cdc_ether was the missing packet). In raspberry works perfectly so would be a good point to add this compatibility easy.
Disable huawei hilink: https://zedt.eu/tech/hardware/switch-huawei-e3131-hilink-modem-mode/
Then i configurated the modem with umtskeeper (which include Sakis3g)
The same process like a raspberry, plenty of tutorials on the internet.
I run the " $ sakis3g --interactive" command, and perfect.
This solution was using debian Ubilinux, more easy than yocto. I think that only support yocto is a mistake..
