CnMaestro works great for nodes organization, health and firmware upgrades. I am greatly impressed, but I have a suggestion to make. It will be nice to have e-mails alerts feature develop on CnMaestro, so you will get immediately notices when a node goes down. Perhaps, not all the time you are looking at CnMaestro or you are away from you computer but your phone text or e-mail alerts will alert you when nodes are experiencing problems.
cnMaestro very much needs the ability to schedule software upgrades on APs and SMs.
cnMaestro makes batch software upgrades pretty simple already, but if I have to get out of bed at 4AM to push the button it doesn't happen.
We have several team members and everyone orders radios with licenses for their various projects, which we all support. Right now license keys and entitlements are stored in teh support account of the person who bought the keys.
It would be great if we could link our accounts together so that we could see all the license keys and entitlements available. or have a centralized license manager server.
noticed this mentioned a few times around the forum, and Todd recently asked as well, so i'll toss it here too.
I'd love to see a 3ghz epmp variant!
we've got plenty of old 320 gear, and the 450 is awesome, but doesn't meet our cost needs for that replacement. the EPMP is on point, even if its 20% higher cost.
This would be really handy for synced PTP options in nlos areas the 5ghz can't do, and isn't enough room on 2.4
900mhz would also be nice!
The ability for an ePMP1000/2000 access point to broadcast a second SSID and with default authentication key so that a newly upgraded Elevate client can connect to be properly provisioned for the "real" sector. This provisioning SSID should have some added security such as short term MAC limit and/or limited network access to prevent anyone using default credentials connecting.
Can we have some sort of improved license system.
If an AP fails, I dont send it back to the supplier, I just throw it out and put a new one up from the truck.
So I would like to purchase a pool of licenses. Eg. We buy 1000 licenses.
The AP should be able to connect to the licensing server and pull from the pool of licenses as subscribers connect and disconnect. If it cannot pull a license then the cpe device should be kicked off after 10 minutes.
For those that dont want their hardware connecting to an external license server, then the server should be able to issue a key instantly that is loaded into an AP and licenses it for the selected number of licenses from the pool, and locks up those licenses until the RMA process is completed or a downgrade key is loaded into the AP and a return code entered back into the license server web interface.
The important thing is there should be absolutley no waiting for licenses to be issued - the license server should be able to accept a license payment and issue it instantly. NO WAITING!!!
Would be GREAT if we could see the "last online" / "last disconnect" time on the session status page of our pmp450 ap's that way we can see if theirs some IDLE radios, when they all went off if at the same time or different etc...
I would like the ability to configure completely separate RADIUS servers (both auth and acct) for GUI/management user logins and SM registration. The idea is on-net management systems and off-net billing/customer systems.
Unless this can be done now and I'm just missing something...
Let us configure more than two DNS servers. Three would work for me as we run three geographically diverse internal resolvers. Four might not be a bad idea. Technically, up to 13 should be allowed, but that's just overkill.
I'm talking about NAT mode LAN DHCP as well as remote management interfaces.
NTP server won't accept hostname, only IP address while it's standard to configure NTP server as hostname for public ntp server so I think it would be a good idea to let us configure hostname.
Right now, while typing letter, every letter typed are ereased automaticly (odd). Tryed both on Firefox and Chrome so I guest it's the wanted behavior.
There should either be a link planner in cnmaestro, or a way to export the CPE locations+AP locations+Modulations at the moment. that way we can do near-real world estimations of swapping a 450 to a 450m i mean this would be super powerful for both internal evaluation, and as a sales tool for cambium i'd imagine to show what a simple swap out
Can Cambium consider making it possible to mark a device when it goes offline to NOT show an alarm. This would be an asset to seasonal customers who unplug thier radios. We have created another proceedure to avoid the alarm but a simple check box in cnMaestro would be much faster.
Thank You Steven
It would be great if ePMP could add the option(s) for 30Mh and/or 25Mhz wide channels.
Several other brands have the optiion for 25 or 30Mhz channel widths, and it's a good way to conserve spectrum in situations where 100 Mbit of capacity is all that's needed, or all that's available.
There are several places where we have 100Mbit Ethernet coming in from other backhaul gear, or places where the POE/Switch limits us to 100 Mbit Ethernet - and in those locations, it would make sense to have the option to configure the Radio for 25 or 30Mhz wide channels - so that we're not being limited by 20 Mhz channels or so that we're not wasting spectrom with 40Mhz wide channels.
In short - ePMP should have a Radio config option between 20 & 40Mhz channel widths - specifically 30Mhz wide.
I'd like to see Frame Utilization percentages added to the throughput monitoring data in the AP. That would allow me to look at frame utilization historically. Because of how variable the speeds on the 450s are, having the throughput isn't especially helpful; a single customer with a very weak signal could be saturating the AP without anything to indicate a problem.
