The BaiOMC (or CloudCore) is our cloud management console. This is where operators manage, monitor, and onboard new base stations and CPEs. If an operator does not yet have an account, they can go to the CloudCore page, fill out the form at the bottom and click the “Submit” link.
An IPsec tunnel is by default enabled and configured to connect to our cloud EPC. As you may know, an EPC is required for the LTE architecture and as such, we provide a cloud-based EPC to simplify the installation and configuration of new base stations. Essentially, they become plug-and-play with this setup. When the eNodeB has Internet plugged into the WAN port (DHCP client by default) and the base station is powered on, it will automatically connect to the cloud EPC by IPsec and become Active and ready to serve clients.
The CPEs will require SIM cards, which are purchased separately. Before the SIM cards can be used, they must first be added to their operator account and be activated. All new SIM card numbers (IMSI) should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the operator so that we can add the SIM cards to the operator account. Once the SIM cards are added, the operator can activate the SIM cards themselves from CloudCore.
To activate the SIM cards, operators would follow the following steps:
- Log into CloudCore
- Click “BOSS” at the top left.
- Click “Subscriber” on the left menu.
- Click “New” to add a new subscriber.
- Enter subscriber info and click on the search icon in the SIM card field.
- Select the respective IMSI number.
- Click save to add a new subscriber and activate the SIM card.
More enhancements to BaiBOSS and BaiOMC will become available upon the next release.
