Note

The Browan Pico Next supports a maximum of 8 channels at any given time. During registration you will have a chance to select which sub-band of 8 RX Channels the Base Station should operate on to start.

Tip: After registration is complete, you can use the Senet Portal to reconfigure the RX Channel sub-band without the need to login to the Browan Configuration web interface (make sure to power cycle the Base Station after making any changes).

Browan Configuration Web Interface Initial Access Instructions

The Pico Next Base Station is configured by default to operate as a DHCP client. Once the Base Station's 'MAC' value is obtained from the back label and the Base Station is connected to a wired (Ethernet) network operating a DHCP server, a network administrator with access to the DHCP assignment table should be able to find the IP address of the Base Station if provided with the Base Station's MAC address.

Note

For more information, please refer to the Browan Pico Next User Guide

All users are required to obtain initial access via DHCP, in order to configure a a cellular network backhaul interface and/or configure the Base Station LoRaWAN Packet Forwarding to communicate with the Senet Network Server.

Wired (Ethernet) Initial Access Instructions

A summary of the default characteristics is provided below:

Interface Default Static IP Default Username Default Password
Wired (Ethernet) DHCP Client admin 'GUI Password' value

After logging in, as a security precaution it's strongly recommended to change the default password.

WAN Backhaul Configuration

In addition to the Ethernet backhaul, the Base Station can also be configured for cellular backhaul operation.

For customers wishing to continue using Ethernet DHCP Client as the preferred backhaul configuration, no action is required.

Note

For other backhaul configurations and more information, please refer to the Browan Downloads page
