Base Station Management
The Base Station Tab allows a user to manage the Base Stations connected to the network. Through this management view the user has the ability to view statuses, details, and edit Base Station settings.
The default table shows a list of Base Stations configured for use on the network that have an Admin Status of In Service. To see all the Base Stations configured for the network, change the Admin Status on the top right of the table to All
The first column of this table shows the connection status of the Base Station with a red or green dot. When there is an issue the mouse can be hovered over this dot to display more information on the connection status.
The Severity filter for the table can be used to selectively display conditions affecting Base Station status. These filter conditions are Base Stations with no issues, open alerts, open cases or connection issues.
For a quick overview of a Base Station hover over the EUI and click the icon to the right. This will then display a quick pop up of important information about the Base Station.
