CnMatrix quick configuration guide using cnMaestro

Cambium’s cnMatrix switches allow for an additional layer to complete your end-to-end Cambium network. These switches can be onboarded, managed and monitored through the cnMaestro management platform. Follow our quick and easy guide on how to connect your cnMatrix switch and onboard the unit onto your cnMaestro cloud account. To start off, ensure that your switch is connected to the internet. Secondly, navigate to cloud.cambiumnetworks.com. If you are an existing user, you can simply sign in to your existing account, but if you are a new user, you will have to register an account and then proceed to create a company account. It is important that you take note of the various account types that are available on cnMaestro and whether the chosen account type supports the onboarding of the cnMatrix switches. Should you have an existing account that does not support the onboarding of the cnMatrix switches, you can change your existing account type to an ‘’Industrial Internet’’ or ‘’Access and Backhaul’’ by navigating to Application > Settings and selecting ‘’Industrial Internet’’ and save your changes. The next step is to navigate to the cnMaestro Home screen and simply select ‘’onboard device’’ to start the onboarding of your cnMatrix switches. Once you are on the onboard page, click on the ‘’claim device’’ tab and enter the switch serial number. The serial number can be found on the box of your CnMatrix switch (S/N option). Once you have successfully claimed your device, click on approve all and wait for the device to be successfully loaded onto your cnMaestro account. Navigate back to the cnMaestro home screen and select the...
3 Ways to update your analogue telephone system

3 Ways to update your analogue telephone system

Voice over IP (VoIP) offers major improvements to traditional communication networks, and as a result, legacy analogue phone systems are on their way out. Ten years ago, 80% of homes had landlines, but today that number is down to 43%— and businesses are following this trend as well. Traditional analogue communication systems were commonly used when users only had the need to use one line for one conversation at a time and used only one phone number. This system used older technology, such as copper phone lines to transmit analogue voice data. A full end-to-end analogue communication topology Although VoIP is becoming the go-to technology for communications, it is important to acknowledge that certain markets cannot convert to a new VoIP solution. This may be due to the lack of quality internet infrastructure where traditional landlines are the only source of connectivity and in many instances, end-users are protective over their existing phone hardware and are unwilling to have to them replaced. In these situations, a hybrid VoIP solution can deliver the flexibility and power of an IP solution while catering for the existing hardware and infrastructure limitations of the end-user. One of the most common reasons why businesses are reluctant to move over to VoIP is because of the existing infrastructure of their telephony network. A completely new communications deployment may be something that can scare a company, especially small to medium-sized businesses who have limited resources. An easy way to work around this is to construct a hybrid VoIP solution that maintains the initial analogue infrastructure while taking on the benefits that VoIP and SIP have to...
