BEAM XPRESSi WebUI - Network


Summary

The Network page contains information related to the device's networking features. This page is an overview of the Network page in BEAM XPRESSi devices

Mobile

The Mobile section displays information about the mobile connection and the SIM card in use. The figure below is an example of the Mobile page:

 Field Name
 Description
 Data connection state   Indicates whether the device has an active mobile data connection
 IMEI   The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit number used to identify cellular modules.
  GSM network operators use the IMEI to identify devices in their networks
 IMSI  The IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit (or less) number used to identify the user of 
 a cellular network
 ICCID  SIM card's ICCID is a unique serial number used to identify the SIM chip
 SIM card state  The current SIM card state. Possible values are:
  • Ready - SIM card is inserted and ready to be used
  • Inserted - SIM card is inserted
  • Not inserted - SIM card is not inserted
  • Unknown - unable to obtain SIM card state value. Possible communication issue between the the device and the modem
 Signal strength  Received signal strength indicator (RSSI) measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate a better signal strength
 Cell ID  The ID of the cell that the modem is currently connected to
 Signal level measurements  Overall signal quality is defined by different measurements for different connection types. Short explanations and recommendations are provided below. Click here for more in-depth information or click on one of the links below:
  • 4G
    • RSRP - reference signal received power, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strength
    • RSRQ - reference signal received quality, measured in dB. Values closer to 0 indicate a better rate of information transfer
    • SINR - signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio, measured in dB. Higher values indicate a better rate of information transfer
  • 3G
    • EC/IO - downlink carrier-to-interference ratio. Values range from -20 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal quality/cleanliness)
    • RSCP - received signal code power. Values range from -124 to 0 (closer to 0 indicates better signal stength)
  • 2G
    • RSSI - received signal strength indicator, measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate better signal strength
 Operator  Network operator's name
 Operator state  Shows whether the network has currently indicated the registration of the mobile device. Possible values are:
  • Unregistered - not registered to a network and the device is not currently searching for a new operator to register to
  • Registered (home) - registered, home network
  • Searching - not registered to a network, but the device is currently searching for a new operator to register to
  • Network denied - registration to network denied by operator
  • Unknown - operator state is currently unknown
  • Registered (roaming) - registered to network, roaming conditions
 Connection type  Mobile connection connection type. Possible values are:
  • 2G: 2G (GSM), 2G (GPRS), 2G (EDGE)
  • 3G: 3G (WCDMA), 3G (HSDPA), 3G (HSUPA), 3G (HSPA), 3G (HSPA+), 3G (DC-HSPA+), 3G (HSDPA+HSUPA), UMTS
  • 4G: 4G (LTE)
  • N/A - not possible to determine at the mom
 Connected band  Currently used frequency band. For more information on supported frequency bands, click here
 Bytes received  Amount of data received through the mobile interface
 Bytes sent  Amount of data sent through the mobile interface
 Restart Modem  Reboots the device's cellular module
 Restart Connection  Restarts the mobile connection
 (Re)register  Registers to the mobile network anew

WAN

The WAN section displays information about the Main and Backup WAN connections. The figure below is an example of the Mobile page:

 Field  Description
 Interface  WAN type. Possible values are:
  • Mobile
  • Wired
  • Wireless
 Type   Connection type or protocol. The value displayed in this field is dependent on used WAN type. Possible values are:
  • Mobile WAN
    • QMI - Qualcomm MSM Interface, a proprietary protocol used between Qualcomm cellular processors and their software stacks
    • PPP - Point-to-Point Protocol; uses a dialling number to establish a data connection
  • WiFi WAN
    • DHCP - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol; the WAN network interface controller acts as a DHCP client, meaning that it receives a dynamically assigned IP address and other network configuration parameters
    • Static - WAN network interface controller configuration parameters are set manually (used when the WAN gateway is not a DHCP server)
 IP address  Router's WAN IP address
 WAN MAC  MAC address of the WAN network interface controller (WiFi radio). This field is only visible if main WAN is set to
 WiFi
 Netmask  A netmask is used to define how "large" a network is by specifying which part of the IP address denotes the
 network and which part denotes the device
 Gateway  Gateway of the default route - an IP address through which the router reaches the Internet
 DNS  DNS servers used by the main WAN connection
 Connected  Currently used WAN connection uptime
 Backup WAN Status  Displays the router's current WAN failover status
 Refresh   Refreshes all information fields in the page

WAN settings can be customized via the Network → WAN page.
