cnMaestro 1.0 Release Notes

cnMaestroTM 1.0 Release Notes

Wireless service providers and enterprises need an easy-to-deploy management system that enables them to efficiently administer and grow their network. Cambium Networks cnMaestro management platform is tailor-made to simplify the administration of your Cambium network. The cnMaestro platform is available in the cloud and will be deployable in the future on premise. It is built from the ground up for secure, end-to-end network lifecycle management: inventory management, onboarding devices, daily operations and maintenance. By offering full visibility across the network, cnMaestro greatly simplifies management of all network devices.


Detailed Features

cnMaestro is a full-featured network management system. The core functionality includes the following:

Hierarchical Dashboards

Visualize your devices from tower to edge with customized dashboards for each device type.

Advanced Troubleshooting

Display tower-to-edge status in a single graphic, view Wi-Fi client details and health, and troubleshoot client connectivity directly on the AP.


View immediate status with stateful alarms, and troubleshoot customer issues by filtering on alarm history and reviewing events.

Device Inventory

Access your devices at the system level, or by network, tower, or sector. Device data can be exported in PDF or CSV formats.

Statistics and Trending

View historical radio and network statistics.

Bulk Image Upgrade

Upgrade the software images in a sector or across sectors in a single job. Queue upgrade jobs during the day so they can be run in the evening, when the network is less utilized.

Template-Based Configuration

Push configuration to single devices or to groups of devices across your network using templates.

Maps and Map Modes

Leverage Google Maps satellite view to position your devices and visualize their health and connectivity. Change the mode of the map to graphically display various wireless key performance indicators.

Zero Touch Onboarding

Preconfigure supported Cambium devices so they will be automatically onboarded when provided with network connectivity.

Multiple Administrators

Invite colleagues by email to manage the devices in your organization’s cnMaestroTM account.

Network Access

cnMaestro requires all managed devices to have Internet connectivity to over port 443. Connections to cnMaestro originate on the managed devices, which means they can be situated behind a NAT firewall. Once a session is created with cnMaestro, it persists and allows real-time, encrypted communication.

Known Issues


Software update does not handle device PoE daisy chaining effectively.

The device supplying the power could be rebooted while its dependent device is updating firmware, which may result in corruption of the device image.

Please make sure to only upgrade daisy-chained devices one-at-a-time.


When upgrading the configuration of a ePMP 1000 Hotspot device, the “Overwrite Configuration” box must be checked into order to replace the existing configuration with the new configuration. If the box is not checked, then the new configuration will be merged into the old.


cnMaestro doesn’t log out even after restarting the browser. To resolve this, please explicitly log out of the application using the menu in the upper-left corner.


Administrators are provided full management support even though the “Admin” options is not selected.

Administrators in the first release are provided with global read/write access to all resources. The Admin button (displayed when creating an invitation to invite other managers) is not currently used.


Deleting an invitation in the Administration screen logs out the current user.


Hostname and latitude/longitude details pushed to a device are not always stored. Intermittently the original values are returned.


If two separate accounts are hosted in the same browser, logging out of one also logs out of the other.


cnMaestro doesn’t validate template configuration – it needs to be verified by the user when the template is created.
