Important: Web Browser
Restart your browser (or clear the browser cache with a hard reload) if you are having UI problems with the 3.2.0 version.

Beta Access

You can sign up by selecting Beta Programs in the header after logging into cnMaestro. You will be prompted to create a new cnMaestro account hosted on a beta server. This account should not be used for production devices, and CBRS and Wi-Fi Guest Access are not supported. The account will persist over time and can be used across multiple beta programs.

3.2.0-1

Assists X3

The Assists feature scans PMP configuration and generates an Assists Score. It evaluates settings that may lead to security or deployment issues, and it generates a summary score at System, Network, Tower, and Device levels. Assists Scores are displayed as a percentage of successful evaluations. This score allows users to recognize and isolate issues in their infrastructure.

NOTE: This feature is evaluated every 24 hours, and it is currently only available for PMP devices. In the future, Assists will be extended to support additional evaluations and device types.

Assists Dashboard

The Assists Dashboard presents the Assists Score and the list of evaluated Assists.

3.2.0-2

Assist Details

Assist Details presents information about individual Assists.

Would Cambium consider releasing the security aspect of this into the base version? Security as a paid feature is a bad look.
