In order to integrate your Base Station with Senet's Network, it must be on-boarded. This process involves:
Installation & configuration of a supported packet forwarder.
Once registration is complete your Base Station's packet forwarder will communicate with Senet's network.
Senet Packet Forwarder for RAN providers
This integration option is applicable to Radio Access Network (RAN) Providers deploying Base Stations at scale. This option increases security over the standard Senet Packet Forwarder, which includes restricting local user accounts and preventing remote access.
Base Station Registration and Software Installation is only required for devices that are new to the Senet Network. If Senet provided the Base Station, no further action is necessary.
Supported Base Stations
For a list of supported Base Stations please see the Base Stations Software documentation.
