A Location is the place where your users access the Internet via the BEAM routers – i.e. the Hotspot. For example, this could be a ticket office or bus station. When it comes to a fleet of vehicles (e.g. buses), the default set-up is that one location covers all of the vehicle hotspots within the operator’s network, such as a city or region. This reduces complexity, management and ultimately costs for subscribing to the BEAM Cloud Hotspot, as opposed to specifying that each vehicle is a “location”.
To view your Locations in the Control Centre use the side menu and go to MANAGE > Locations.
To view and manage a Location, click on the location’s name in the list.
