Milesight UG65

Registration and Configuration

If you have not done so already you will need to register your gateway through your Developer or RAN Provider account using the steps below.

Prerequisite Registration Information

The Manufacturer EUI can be derived from the listed 'MAC' value. The Serial Number ('SN') and 'MAC' values can be found on the label located on the back of the Milesight UG65.

Note

To obtain the Manufacturer (Base Station) EUI from the listed 'MAC' value do the following:

Step Instruction Example
1. Note the listed 'MAC' value. 24E124F24207-09
2. Delete the dash and any characters to the right of the dash. 24E124F24207
3. Insert characters 'FFFE' in-between the 6th and 7th characters from the left. 24E124 FFFE F24207
4. Ensure there are no spaces and verify your final value has a length of 16 characters. 24E124FFFEF24207

Alternatively, the SN and Manufacturer EUI can be found in the Milesight Configuration web interface. For access instructions, see corresponding section below.

Registration on the Senet network

Once the Manufacturer EUI and Base Station SN have been acquired, return to the Senet Portal and complete Registration.

Note

The Milesight UG65 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 Milesight Configuration web interface.

Milesight Configuration Web Interface Initial Access Instructions

There are two methods to connect to the UG65 Base Station locally for configuration purposes:

 1. Wireless (Wi-Fi)
 2. Wired (Ethernet)

Each interface has a unique default static IP hosting the Milesight Configuration web interface. In this instruction set we show the wireless access method.

Note

For more information, please refer to the Milesight Official UG65 Quick Start PDF

All users will be required to obtain initial access locally in order to configure a network backhaul interface and LoRaWAN Packet Forwarding to communicate with the Senet Network Server.

Wireless (Wi-Fi) Local Connection

Open a web browser on your PC (Chrome is preferred) and navigate to the appropriate IP address. The default IP address and Username/Password for the wireless interface are listed below:

Interface Default Static IP Default Username Default Password
Wireless (Wi-Fi) http://192.168.1.1 admin password

Enter the default username and password as listed above, then click Login:

During the initial setup you will be prompted through two configuration menus:
 1. Select the antenna type for your device (Internal or External)
 2. Change the default password

WAN Backhaul Configuration

Configuring a backhaul connection to the Internet is a prerequisite to enable the Base Station to be remotely accessible and to forward traffic to the Senet Network Server. In this instruction set, the wired backhaul interface is configured through the static wireless default interface.

Configuring an interface for backhaul operation as described in this section will modify how the device functions:
 1. A correctly configured backhaul interface will enable the Base Station to communicate with Senet.
 2. The ability to connect to the default static IP address of the corresponding interface will be disabled.

Warning

Be aware that if both the wireless and wired interfaces are configured incorrectly it may become extremely difficult to recover access to the Base Station. It is recommended to complete Senet registration, Basic Station configuration, and verify connectivity through the Senet portal prior to configuring both interfaces for concurrent backhaul operation.

The Base Station will be accessible remotely through the web interface following a successful backhaul configuration and connection. In addition to Wi-Fi and Ethernet backhauls, the Base Station can also be configured for cellular backhaul operation.

Note

For more information, please refer to the Milesight Official UG65 Quick Start PDF

One additional backhaul interface can be configured so that in the event the main interface has a failure, the second backhaul connection will be utilized.

Screenshot

Note

During the initial backhaul configuration process, it's recommended to use an alternate interface than the one to be provisioned, if available. For example, if planning to provision the Base Station to operate as wired, its recommended to access the Base Station through the wireless local interface. In this way, newly assigned DHCP IP addresses can be found through the Milesight Configuration web interface. Otherwise, in the event an alternate interface isn't available and the interface to be provisioned for backhaul must be used for local access configuration as well; after DHCP settings are saved and Base Station is connected to wired network, a network administrator with access to the DHCP assignment table should be able to find the address if provided with the Base Station MAC address.

Wired (Ethernet) WAN Backhaul Configuration

If you are using the default wired local connection address (192.168.23.150), you will need to reconnect to the new configured address following making these changes.

Screenshot

Note

You can find the DHCP IP address assigned to the wired interface if connected through the wireless local connection by navigating to Status > Network.
