That's great stuff!

Would you mind to post an article here about how to implement that?

I assume that this can be interesting for others as well.

Hi Evgeny,

This is an excellent guide, I'm going to follow the advice for an implementation that I'm working on at the moment.

Some colleagues have advised me that they've had problems with Wifi not working well when mobile devices are mounted in metal racks. Are you or any of your colleagues able to recommend any racks that include plastic sides which are likely to be more transparent to a Wifi signal. We're concerned that for our larger implementations in data centres, metal racks will act as a "Faraday cage" and cause problems with the Wifi signals.

Thanks
Bish

This is a really good guide.

The quality of the Mobile Center help continues to be straightforward and informative at version 3.0 also.

The steps to backup and restore the Postgres database were particularly useful.

https://admhelp.microfocus.com/mobilecenter/en/3.0/Content/migrate_server.htm#mt-item-0

 To be able to see the database through PGAdmin, an entry with pg_hba.conf to allow local connections was required:

# IPv6 local connections:
host all all ::1/128 md5

Best

Hi Bish,

From experience, the hub has really mattered, we are now using the Cambrionix ones.  Cambrionix is a really solid company that are more than willing to go through technical details and their hubs are excellent.  I hadn't seen these cabinets, one client has a hand-crafted wall mounted stand that works, their secure room is cooled.  You could have really helped with our payments solutions, we've been looking for a way to stop interference for a Contactless Payments card multiplexer, placing each card in one of the Faraday cage slots may well work.

Have a good Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Cheers

Paul

Hello

Thanks for this guide, regarding the battery management we also went the cambrionix route and developped a webservice using the API to cut the power supply every night to avoid battery overcharge and swelling.

Hi Richard,
We didn't received any Wifi degradation by using metal racks, but maybe it is because the Wifi router is located within the rack as well...

Basically to have a connector running you need to first have a server installed somewhere, you can access your software download site if you are already a paid customer or download the trial version.

Hope it helps.
