Here are descriptions of some of the most interesting and significant changes made to AirVantage 15.04 for AirVantage Platform.
The documentation has been reworked to provide more developer oriented content, including tutorials to connect your devices.
What has changed?
Now AirVantage supports MQTT Quality of Service (QoS) level 0 and 1 from the MQTT standard:
A new library has been delivered for all Open AT gateways and modules: SL series, Q series and FX and GL gateways.
This simple library aims to help you to send data to AirVantage and receive commands. It can be uploaded in your development environment by using the package manager in the Developer Studio for Open AT and using the airvantage update site:
This package includes:
You can find an howto for the Open AT Connector here. But for each gateway or modules supported by AirVantage, you can find an howto for your hardware:
And if you can’t find a howto for your hardware platform, have a look to the reference guide here!
The top section of Monitor/Systems/Grid is now customizable. You can add any widget of your choice or replace the ones already in place, to match a specific use case.
As an example, to upgrade your fleet, you can pick the System Types and Deployed Firmware widget. This will permit to easily select a subset of the fleet with a specific version and upgrade, and then select another part and upgrade it without going back and forth to the start page dashboard.
Note that you can add more than 3 widgets, still this will push the grid down to the bottom.
A set of new gateways and modules are available in the Register activity.
Available in the start page configurable dashboard, a new widget for vizualising aggregated data over the fleet provides additional analytical capability. You can plot any numeric device management or application data for checking the fleet trend by configuring:
As example is shown an aggregation function for the anlysis of temperature for a large fleet:
Adds automatically a label when launching an operation on more than 100 entities. Then the label is now automatically removed.
From the system details, we not only provide a direct access to AceManager to the default connection port 9191, but now you can also benefit from the same functionality if you are using SSL or if you changed the default port. AirVantage will deduct the way to access AceManager from the device configuration.
