Release date: June 29, 2023
Nextivity is pleased to release WAVE Portal version 1.7, which includes several improvements to user experience, including:
CEL-FI QUATRA 4000 series and QUATRA EVO systems are now able to select per-port operator assignments in the WAVE Portal. Previously, QUATRA 4000/i/c systems in North America limited each donor port assignment to a specific operator. A WAVE Portal user can now assign each port, selecting from a list of all operators supported at the Site installation address.
This improved operator selection adds the ability to assign the same operator to multiple ports, increasing the number of bands relayed for a given operator. For instance, Nextivity Partners in the USA may elect to update the configuration on existing QUATRA 4000 installations to repurpose a previously disabled "Sprint" port to another operator.
With the added flexibility to select any operator on a port, it's important to know the Band relay capabilities of each port. This information is now displayed in the Operator Settings section of the System Settings page. Also added to the dropdown lists in this section are the available Bands contained within each operator configuration.
When you select an operator from the list, the bands contained within that selection are compared to the list of bands the assigned port can relay. If the selected configuration contains bands that cannot be relayed by the assigned port, but could be relayed if assigned to a different port, then a message is displayed to inform the user.
Note: Valid and appropriate configurations will occur where the "Band # is not supported" feedback message is displayed. For example, when assigning two ports to the same operator because some desired bands are relayed by the first port and some by the second.
This feedback minimizes possible oversights while enabling configuration flexibility.
The WAVE Portal is a powerful tool for Nextivity Partners, used to both commission new systems and maintain existing installations. As a remote monitoring and management platform, it reduces the need for on-site visits and expedites the identification and remediation of issues. Troubleshooting just got easier with the introduction of System History Reports.
A "Reports" button has been added to the top-right of the NU Details page on CEL-FI systems. When clicked, a new window appears with a grid of measurements to select for further analysis.
Select the Date Range at the top: Last 24 Hours, Last Week, or Last Month
The rows list each metric available for reporting, organized by Asset. For QUATRA systems, each CU will be listed with its respective measurements. The measurements available are those which could previously be reported individually.
The columns organize the donor ports and constituent radios. Users may select multiple metrics for the same radio, the same measurement across multiple radios, or a mix of both. The appropriate selections will vary based on the situation and what needs to be analyzed.
A "Suggested" link is available at the top of each column to quickly select those measurements which are most often used to analyze performance issues. If a checkbox is greyed out, then the system's most recent report indicates that the radio is unused, or the measurement is not applicable to the radio.
Previously, reviewing multiple measurements required clicking back and forth, or attempting to open multiple windows. Once selections are made and the report is generated, all measurements appear on the same screen, as a stacked view of the charts for each measurement.
The charts can be rearranged to review relevant measurements on the screen at the same time. An Export option is also available to print the report to PDF.
