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.
The Assists Dashboard presents the Assists Score and the list of evaluated Assists.
Assist Details presents information about individual Assists.
Devices failing the evaluation are displayed in a table.
PMP Dashboard with Assists Score
The PMP Dashboard is enhanced to include the Assists Score.

NSE 3000 Device Support
The NSE 3000 (Network Services Edge) is a new Cambium device that implements edge security and is managed through cnMaestro Cloud (it is not supported in cnMaestro On-Premises). The following management functionalities are available.
|Onboarding||Onboard using the serial number (MSN). Zero-touch deployment is supported.|
|Software Update||Bulk software update.|
|Configuration||Configure using NSE Groups. The following sections are available:
|Security||IDS/IPS Threats and Vulnerabilities for connected clients.|
|Network||WAN, LAN, and DHCP details.|
|Performance||Performance graphs for CPU and Available Memory.|
|Notifications||Events and Alarms.|
The NSE 3000 is claimed using its MSN (Manufacturer Serial Number) in cnMaestro Cloud.
When the device contacts cnMaestro, it is placed in the Onboarding Queue, where it needs to be approved in order to be managed.
The dashboard provides a high-level overview of device and security status.
Configuration Using NSE Groups
NSE devices can be configured by creating a new NSE Group and mapping it to a device. The configuration sections of an NSE Group are listed below:
VPN and RADIUS
The security page details network security events discovered by the NSE 3000. It includes threats detected by an onboard IDS/IPS, which monitors traffic in real-time, as well as a vulnerability assessment against internal clients.
The Threats page provides IDS/IPS statistics and includes a map displaying a visual representation of threat origins.
The Vulnerabilities page details problematic services discovered by scanning connected clients
Network statistics are available for LAN, Routes, and WAN.
The LAN page provides a list of VLANs configured on the device, including the status of the DHCP server on VLAN interfaces.
The route table displays the status of the default gateway on the WAN1 and WAN2 interfaces and the administrator-configured static routes.
The WAN page displays status of both WAN links, including details of the WAN connection (IP Mode, IP Address, Default Gateway, and Link Status).
The WAN Connectivity section presents health based on periodic keepalive responses; the Speed Test graph highlights the maximum capacity of the links; and the Throughput graph shows link utilization in real-time.
The performance page displays information about system performance, such as CPU and Available Memory.
The Clients table displays information about local clients and remote clients (VPN users). Clicking on the hostname navigates to the Client Dashboard page, which shows detailed statistics about application usage and security.
The Client Dashboard presents important KPIs, application usage, vulnerable services, and device details learned through fingerprinting.
The NSE 3000 uses DPI (deep packet inspection) to identify client applications and present detailed usage data, such as uplink, downlink, and total bytes.
The NSE 3000 scans the LAN network to identify vulnerable services running on client devices and provides the CVE ID for the discovered vulnerabilities.
Select the recommended software version from the drop-down menu to upgrade the device.
Edge Controller and PTP 820/850 Device Support
cnMaestro now supports PTP 820/850 device management using an Edge Controller, which is a software application installed on a Ubuntu or CentOS server running behind the customer firewall. The following management functionalities are available:
|Onboarding||Onboard the Edge Controller using Cambium ID.|
|Dashboard||Device Dashboard for Edge Controller.|
|Discovery||Configure SNMP rules to discover PTP 820/850 devices.|
|Monitor||Monitor Edge Controller CPU Utilization and Load, Process Activity, Memory Usage, Swap Usage, and File system.|
|MSP||Managed Service Provider support for Edge Controller|
|Software Update||Edge Controller updates (Edge Controller > Tools >Operations).|
|Onboarding||Onboard PTP 820/850 through SNMP discovery rules.|
|Dashboard||Dashboard for PTP 820/850 devices.|
|Configuration||Template support for a subset of PTP 820/850 configuration.|
|Details||Overview, Ethernet, Security, and Activation Key details|
|Notifications||Device-specific notifications and alarms.|
|Statistics||System, Network, and Tower Statistics can be viewed and exported.|
|Software Update||Bulk software updates.|
|Maps||Device and link display on the Map.|
|Tools||Diagnostics, Operations, and Services|
|Reports||System, Network, and Tower level Reports for PTP 820/850 devices|
The Edge Controller is installed using a script executed as super user. See the Edge Controller User Guide for more details.
The Edge Controller is onboarded to cnMaestro by configuring the cnMaestro URL, Cambium ID, and Onboarding Key through the Edge Controller CLI:
Once onboarded, the Edge Controller is placed into the Onboarding Queue in cnMaestro.
It needs to be Approved to complete onboarding.
A basic dashboard is available for the Edge Controller application.
SNMP discovery rules can be configured, and devices ignored through a blacklist.
Monitor resource utilization on the Edge Controller installation.
Onboarding PTP 820/850 devices is though SNMP discovery rules, configured in Edge Controller > Configuration. The Edge Controller will discover PTP 820/850 devices using SNMP.
Discovered devices are placed in Onboard > Edge Controller > Devices Onboarding Queue.
They need to be Approved in order to be onboarded into cnMaestro.
PTP 820/850 Device Dashboard
The PTP 820/850 Device Dashboard is presented below. It displays information on Radio Health as well as Radio Groupings, such as MC-ABC, HSB, XPIC, and AMCC.

Bulk Software Update is available.
60 GHz cnWave Topology Scan
This feature discovers the 60 GHz cnWave network and creates a comprehensive, detailed network topology. This tool only detects nodes operating in responder mode. It will not detect CNs with a wireless link already established. Offline nodes with a configured channel override will not be detected on a different channel.
Topology Scan Option
Start Topology Scan

Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS)
This feature is available under AP Group > Security page. It detects Flood Attacks such as for Association, Authentication, Disassociation, Deauthentication, and EAP.
WIDS monitoring details are available at the Site level. The WIDS page displays details of Rogue AP, Honey Pot APs, and Known APs for 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz.
Honey Pot APs
Miscellaneous UI Improvements
All existing provisioning action buttons – Basic Details, Set Location, Update Software and Configure Devices are consolidated into a single Edit Device action button to improve space utilization.
Also, the Approval/Undo Approval toggle button is replaced with an interactive icon button / .
Existing CBRS “Deregister Devices” action icon is replaced with .
Filter in Alarms and Alarms History Grids
Advanced Filter option added in the Alarms and Alarms History grids.
APs Tab renamed to Devices under Sites
Due to the release of the NSE (Network Services Edge) under Sites, the existing APs tab is renamed Devices.
Important: API v1 No Longer Supported
As announced during 3.0.0 release, support for the “v1” version is completely removed starting in 3.2.0. Please update to use the “v2” version. More information is found in the API Clients section of the User Guide.
