RELEASE NOTES 1ST OF MARCH, 2020
Welcome to Version 6.0, our most ambitious update and upgrade to date, which includes exciting new features and performance upgrades on both the back-end and front-end of our network server infrastructure.
Version 6.0 is packed full of new features and component upgrades that have been built to support the next wave of scaled out LoRaWAN solutions.
With significant improvements to both the user and admin interface, and increased operator functionality, Version 6.0 provides significant improvements to the quality of life for network operators.
NETWORK SERVER 6.0
More colour coding has been added to the MAC Command log in order to better differentiate between Uplink and Downlink messages.
- Uplinks are now coloured blue
- Downlinks are now coloured grey
The new login window for both the User Interface and Admin Interface has been improved to enable a high definition white label.
✔ NEW Version 6.0:
The LORIOT logo can be replaced with a client logo to brand the server.
✘ OLD Version 5.7:
Charts and statistics shown in the User Interface are now consistent and displayed in the user’s local time.
Improved overview of the user account within the User Interface Accounts menu, such as a better overview of device capacity.
The gateway tap functionality has been reworked and is now displayed in the User Interface without opening a new browser window.
Users can now transfer a device between server Applications without having to remove and re-register the device. This ensures no restart or re-join is required and no interruption in service.
The User Application Log has been enhanced with a time/date option to view a specific data period and two filter fields to show logs from a specific DeviceEUI and from a specific event type.
Device Profiles is a tool to configure one or several devices with a pre-configured set of LoRaWAN™ parameters. Once you assign a profile to a device its parameters will be changed to match those of the profile.
Organisation Admins now have an improved Organisation overview page and can independently edit any details.
✔ With the additional Device Allocation Chart, device capacity allocation to users within the Organisation is clearly presented.
The Server Operator and Organisation Admin invitation page has been updated with the latest profiles, and outdated entry fields have been removed.
The Server Operator Log Browser has been enhanced with a time/date option to view a specific period and a minor visual rework to better accommodate the new options.
The Server Operator search tool for Gateways, Applications and Devices has been improved with new filter and search options, including new useful information displayed in the results.
Server Operators can now assign registered gateways to a Virtual Network and Multicast downlinks will be transmitted using only the gateways within a selected Virtual Network(s). Organizations on the server can be given permission to utilise Virtual Networks.
Improvement in the logging of the RSIG field in V2 gateways.
Users can now set a value between 0 (default) and 60 seconds for the MQTT KeepAlive interval.
Updates to maintain Adaptive Data Rate support for all regions.
Gateways with more than one LoRaWAN chip can now be assigned multiple channels
