Libre and Cambium

What Can Libre do for the Cambium operator?

Number of registered SMs. This AP has 7

 

Interface traffic

Number of GPS Satellites tracked

Modulation

Libre can be setup for thresholds.  Any of the above graphs can be set up to alert based upon a threshold.  You could setup an alert that says if SMs on an AP drop by 10% kick out an alert.  This could alert you to possible frequency issues.   You could set a threshold for if traffic reaches a certain level.

ePMP elevate webinar

Some highlights on the ePMP Elevate platform.

-Allows ePMP Elevate software to run on on non-Cambium 802.11n subscriber modules
-ePMP Elevate subscribers function as ePMP subscribers
-Solution for WISPs who have hardware deployed. Offers a migration plan.
-ePMP AP must be licensed for ePMP Elevate
-5GHZ Only
-XW and XM based Ubiquiti hardware
-17 supported models
-2.4 GHZ is in on the roadmap. No official comment on timeframe.
-cnMaestro support is available for XW hardware
-Replaces the UBNT software with a cambium interface. Looks pretty close to any other ePMP interface.
-If DFS is FCC certified on the hardware it will work on the hardware when it gets the elevate system.

Cambium ePMP 2.6 released

Release 2.6 update includes: 

  • RADIUS Authentication of Administrative Users – Allows for the centralization in a RADIUS server of passwords and administrative access to ePMP network elements
  • RADIUS Configuration of VLAN – Allows for configuration of VLAN settings on subscriber radios from the settings in the subscriber’s RADIUS profile
  • Support AP Lite License Keys – Allows customers to purchase a license key (Part Number: C050900S200A) that will allow AP Lites to be upgraded to support up to 120 subscriber modules
  • 10 MHz and 5 MHz  Channel sizes for enhanced PTP Mode of Operation – This will allow for easier deployment of ePMP Links in crowded spectrum environments
  • 10 MHz Channel Sizes for AP WiFi and SM WiFi – This will allow for a greater degree of compatibility with existing WiFi based solutions
  • Networking and Operations Feature Enhancements that include Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) Support, Separate Management IP Address Port Forwarding, Wireless MAC Address Filtering for Network Entry, and Display at AP of distance to each SM
  • Improved Interference Tolerance at the AP for On-Channel Interferers

PMP Software release 14.1.1

New Software Release 14.1.1 update includes:

450i Access Point now supports PMP 450 and PMP 430 Subscriber Modules. Network operators can replace a PMP 450 AP with the PMP 450i AP and benefit from improved packets processing capability of the PMP 450i.
450i ETSI complance for EU customers.
450i IC compliance for customers in Canada.

  • Multiple User Login on the GUI 
  • 4.9 GHz support under Country Other 
  • Ability to enable and disable management access on the SM from the Ethernet when Management VLAN is configured 
  • Ability to disable the SM’s primary Ethernet port 
  • Ability to disable factory default through power reset sequence

  • Improvements to Rate Adapt mechanism in ePTP mode 
  • Memory optimization

Upgrading EPMP GPS Firmware

Beginning with System Release 2.0, users can upgrade the firmware of the on-board GPS chip present on the Connectorized Radio with Sync.

To upgrade the on-board GPS chip on a Connectorized Radio with Sync:
1. Navigate to Monitor => GPS to check the GPS Firmware Version that is currently present on the radio.

2.If the GPS Firmware Version displays AXN_1.51_2801, navigate to Tools => Software Upgrade

3.Under the G P S F i r m w a r e upgrade section, select the same package used to upgrade the device’s firmware ex: ePMP-GPS_Synced-v2.4.2.tar.gz.

4.Click upgrade

5. The upgrade can take up to 3 minutes. Once the upgrade is done, the radio’s UI prompts for a reboot and the reboot button will be highlighted.

6.Click the Reboot button on the top right corner of the UI.

7.Once the radio has completed its reboot process, check under the Monitor => GPS page to check the firmware version

ePMP 100 version 2.4 released

New Features added:

Release 2.4 adds the following features:

eFortify™ Enhancements:

  • New ePTP mode operation: The release introduces a new mode of operation for point-to-point configuration providing significantly lower latency than other modes. Not available for DFS bands.
  • Improvements to VoIP performance
  • Ability to configure the Max MCS independently in each direction

eCommand™ Enhancements:

  • eAlign: The release introduces eAlign (found under the Tools menu), a tool to aid with link alignment
  • Session Time per SM on the AP (under Monitor->Wireless)
  • Improvements to the throughput chart on the GUI dashboard (under “Home”) 

ePMP Version 2.3.1 released

Highlights Include:
o RFC1213 supports standard interface MIBs. Items such as Ethernet interface Tx/Rx and
corresponding stats are now supported per the standard RFC. This allows users to utilize 3rd party monitoring tools that support RFC1213
Separate Management IP when SM is in NAT mode
o Separate Wireless Management IP will provide the ability to separate management traffic from user traffic when the SM is configured in NAT mode providing separate management access to the SM. This includes the ability to have a separate management interface when PPPoE is enabled on the SM.
ARP table display
o Displays all the ARP entries for interfaces present in the routing table
VoIP helper functionality under NAT
o When the SM is in NAT mode, ePMP inspects SDP packets and automatically creates appropriate
