BEAM OS Logo

Summary #

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

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:
BeamOS networking network mobile information 4g screen

Field NameDescription
Data connection state Indicates whether the device has an active mobile data connection
IMEIThe 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
IMSIThe IMSI (international mobile subscriber identity) is a unique 15 decimal digit (or less) number used to identify the user of
a cellular network
ICCIDSIM card’s ICCID is a unique serial number used to identify the SIM chip
SIM card stateThe 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 strengthReceived signal strength indicator (RSSI) measured in dBm. Values closer to 0 indicate a better signal strength
Cell IDThe ID of the cell that the modem is currently connected to
Signal level measurementsOverall signal quality is defined by different measurements for different connection types. Short explanations and recommendations are provided 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
OperatorNetwork operator’s name
Operator stateShows 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 typeMobile 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 moment
Connected bandCurrently used frequency band.
Bytes receivedAmount of data received through the mobile interface
Bytes sentAmount of data sent through the mobile interface
Restart ModemReboots the device’s cellular module
Restart ConnectionRestarts the mobile connection
(Re)registerRegisters 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:
BeamOS networking network wan information screen

Field NameDescription
InterfaceWAN type. Possible values are:
• Mobile
• Wired
• Wireless
TypeConnection 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 addressRouter’s WAN IP address
WAN MACMAC address of the WAN network interface controller (WiFi radio). This field is only visible if main WAN is set to
WiFi
NetmaskA 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
GatewayGateway of the default route – an IP address through which the router reaches the Internet
DNSDNS servers used by the main WAN connection
ConnectedCurrently used WAN connection uptime
PortsDisplays an image of the router’s front panel with highlighted Ethernet ports that are currently in use
WAN Fallover StatusDisplays the router’s current WAN failover status
RefreshRefreshes all information fields in the page

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

LAN #

The LAN section displays information about your Local Area Network and active DHCP leases.

LAN Information #

The LAN Information section contains data on the router’s LAN interface(s). The figure below is an example of the LAN Information section:
BeamOS networking manual network lan lan information screen

Field NameDescription
NameLAN interface name
IP AddressRouter’s LAN IP address
NETmaskA 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
Ethernet MAC addressRouter’s LAN MAC address
Connected forLAN interface uptime

DHCP Leases #

The DHCP Leases section contains information on DHCP clients that hold active DHCP lease. The figure below is an example of the DHCP Leases section:
BeamOS networking network lan dhcp leases screen

Field NameDescription
HostnameDHCP client’s hostname
IP addressDHCP client’s IP address
LAN NameLAN interface name through which the client is connected to the router
MAC AddressDHCP client’s MAC address
Lease Time RemainingRemaining lease time for a DHCP client. Active DHCP lease holders will try to renew their DHCP leases after a half of the lease time passes. DHCP lease settings can be changed in the Network → LAN → DHCP Server section

Ports #

The Ports displays an image of the router’s front panel with highlighted Ethernet ports that are currently in use. The Rerfresh button refreshes all information fields in the page. The figure below is an example of the Ports section:
BeamOS networking network lan ports screen

Wireless #

The Wireless section displays information about wireless connections and associated WiFi stations.

Wireless Information #

The figure below is an example of the Wireless Information section:
BeamOS networking network wireless information screen

ModeConnection mode. Can either be Access Point (AP) or Client. In AP mode others can connect to this router’s wireless connection. In client mode router connects to other wireless networks
EncryptionThe type of WiFi encryption used
Wireless MACThe MAC (Media Access Control) address of the access point radio
Signal QualityThe signal quality between router’s radio and some other device that is connected to the router
Bit rateThe maximum possible physical throughput that the router’s radio can handle. Bit rate will be shared between router and other possible devices which connect to local Access Point (AP)
