Great minds think alike. Start by seeing if someone has suggested what you're thinking of.
If they have, give them kudos and comment to endorse the idea.
Be an innovator. If no one has suggested the idea, start a thread to have it considered.
In LINKPlanner, I would like the PTP link windows to show the basic link info like azimuth, up/down tilt. The PMP screens show that for every single subscriber, but for the PTP links you have to generate the installation report and scroll through it. We should at least be able to see the basics.
Downlink/Uplink ratio settings is not availavle in ePTP master, slave mode in ePMP1000. Please intigrade Downlink/Uplink ratio settings in ePTP master, slave mode in ePMP1000. Ihave attached a file.
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 to create a limited username that permet the only monitoring of devices (downlink, uplink etc...) without he can modify, add or delete dvices or create jobs etc...
It would be useful for level 1 assistance to watch if the device is active, if occupy the entire throughput etc...
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!!!
I would like the ability to turn ethernet port security on/off through a future wireless manager update. The ability to limit the number of secure mac addresses already exisits, so it would be beneficial to turn on/off the port. We currently have over 1500 ePMP SM's deployed in our network, and the ability to conserve IP addresses in our pool would be highly benficial.
I wanted to request adding a section in cnMaestro on-premises where we can apply our own SSL certificate, instead of the default self-signed.
I previously did this through the console, but a subsequent update of cnMaestro (package update) wiped out all my changes. It would be far easier (and stable) if we could paste a certificate into the webUI and it were retained through updates.
It would be nice if our tech support would be able to unmask the WiFi passwords in the UI for the cnPilot R series routers. It would be nice to see them in cnMaestro and be able to change them.
We have a wireless network, and a fiber network. We would like the ability to organize "Managed Routers" under a different network so that we can quickly find our managed, paid for, customers. I like the ability that they self-discover in our wireless network, but for a customer to call us, it takes too much time to drill down to what tower, what sector, then what radio are they on.
We currently seperate the R201 routers out to a seperate managed router network, but under the Tools tab when selected, it doesn't show the CPE or AP that it is connected through on our wireless network. If we can have the self-discovery stay in the wireless network, and have the ability to organize it for quicker access, but still retaining the troubleshooting ability, that would be helpful.
It would be nice if NAT on PMP450/450i has the following functionality:
- NAT Port Mapping with more than 10 entries and/or the possibility to set a range of ports
- NAT Virtual Server (where you can set internal/external port)
- Editable LAN Subnet Mask
We would like the ability that if a customer factory defaults a router, it grabs the cnmaestro on-prememsis address (from DHCP) and then checks in, sees that it is already in inventory, then pulls last-known good configuration.
I searched into the Ideas section, but nobody have mentioned new features to embed into R200/R201.
So credit will be given to Doug at Blast for a portion of this idea. However, I want to elaborate on my concept of changes in the ePMP GUI. My technician's particularly like the Quick Start option, some WISP's would like this feature to go away after first config, and to change the priority of what's displayed first on the main page, IE RSSI / MCS / Quality / quantity.
So my thought was, on first boot have QUICK START be the screen that comes up, but then once settings have been changed and saved, the screen that loads first from there after would be an INSTALLER screen. Basically the Home Screen but broken down to only the necessary options, (if these were customizable that would be even better), but the end game is the technician looking at this on his phone can see the RSSI, MCS, and Quality's fast and efficiently, on a mobile device friendly screen. The Home screen, Quick Start, and other options would still be available, just through a few clicks on the menu system.
My goal in this recommendation is to bring to the community the concept and have more involvement on what the group as a whole would prefer for this startup screen. AT THE SAME TIME, we need to consider that, at least in my opinion, we don't want to lose functionality of the radio for convenience of the GUI. IE the more features for fancy GUI the more processing power we potentially sacrifice, I'd rather have a junk GUI and a powerful radio, than the opposite.
Without adding an additional light, I'd like to see some indicator for WAN connectivity. Perhaps the WAN light could flash rapidly if it had a physical connection, but no Internet or Gateway connectivity.
I think such a behavior would be helpful for remote troubleshooting.
