Base stations

The Integrator/DECT manager automatically recognizes the base stations within the network. Base stations need to be confirmed, activated and synchronized.



Base station administration

Use the following web configurator page to assign base stations to the DECT manager.

SettingsBase stationsAdministration

There are two tables:

  1. Connected base stations lists all base stations which are already connected to the DECT manager.
  2. Pending base stations list all base stations which are not yet connected to a DECT manager.



Connected base stations
The page shows the connected base stations with the following information:
MAC address

Hardware address of the base station. With this address the device is uniquely
identified within the LAN.

Base station

Name of the base station. When added to the list the MAC address is used as name. The base station located at the same device as the DECT manager is
shown as Local.

The name can be edited

RPN

(Radio Fixed Part Number) This number separates the cells in which the base station could reside from each other (maximum 7 cells). It indicates for a
mobile device how many intercell hand overs the base station is able to manage.

DECT manager

Name of DECT manager the base station belongs to.
Currently always: local

FWFirmware version currently installed.

Pending base stations

The Pending base stations list shows the automatically recognized DECT base stations in the network that have not yet been registered. To integrate them into your DECT multicell system, they need to be confirmed and activated.
The base stations are identified by their MAC address.

Base stations

IP address type

The IP address type is copied from the setting for the DECT manager on the Network – IP page. You can change the IP address type. The settings for the DECT manager and the base stations do not have to match. For example, the DECT manager could receive a fixed IP address
so that it will always be able to access the web configurator with the same address, while the base stations receive their IP addresses dynamically.

  • Select the desired IP address type from the option menu.

If the IP address type is Static, you have to enter the IP address.
