Network Status Map

The network status map provides a quick look at the status of the deployed network. This overview includes the current health of the deployed Base Stations and Devices.

Base Station Status

Connection Status

By default the map shows the connection status of the Base Station with color indicators. Icon colors are based on a combination of Connection Status, Alert Severity and Case Priority. The coloring is hierarchical, with the color of the most severe state taking precedence. This color should be the same as the color displayed for the status column in the Base Station table, the Base Station Details view and the Map popup dialog.

Status Color

Source Value Color
Connection Status 2 - Fully Connected(ws and ssh or exception case, ex. Collector)
1 - Partially Connected (WS or SSH)
0 - Not connected (no WS or SSH and not an exception)

Base Station Summary

When zoomed in on the map looking at a Base Station the icon updates to show more detailed information.

Backhaul Connection Type

The Base Station Status Icon also shows decorations that indicate the active backhaul connection type of the Base Station. The icon will show a wireless decoration if the Base Station is connected to the network via a cellular backhaul or an ethernet port decoration if an ethernet connection is used. Both decorations are shown if the Base Station is using redundant connections. If no decorations are shown, the backhaul connection type is either unknown or a less common type like satellite.

Base Station Coverage Area

Left clicking on a Base Station at the appropriate zoom level, will display the approximate coverage area for the Base Station. This coverage takes into account the surrounding topology, given antenna height and other factors.

Coverage Visibility

Coverage visibility depends on a number of factors including whether the Base Station layer is enabled, whether the Base Station is owned and whether the Base Station is a participant in the LVN. The following table provides an summary of these cases:

Coverage Mode Base Station Layer Shown - Owned Base Station Layer Shown - LVN Base Station Layer Hidden - Owned Base Station Layer Hidden - LVN
LVN Coverage Yes Yes Yes Yes
Owned Coverage Yes N/A Yes N/A

Coverage Image Opacity

The opacity of coverage images can be customized from the Layers button. Click the Set Overlay Opacity menu item to launch a dialog to customize the opacity.

Base Station Details Summary

Right click a Base Station's icon to show an informational dialog in the lower left corner of the map.

Base Station Analysis

The Base Station Analysis feature scopes Devices displayed on the map to those heard by the Base Station for the selected time-frame. The "Unique" checkbox will further restrict Devices displayed to those only heard by the Base Station for that time.

Example: Devices shown before Base Station Analysis
