Improved User Interface


The CUWBNet and Device listing pages now provide multi-select to allow performing actions on multiple items at once. Some examples of actions that can be performed on multiple items include: deletion, reset and identify devices, save all/save selected, and stop/start selected CUWBNets.

Button Iconification

Most buttons on the CUWB Manager have been iconified to improve the general layout of the interface.

Viewer Update

New Color Scheme

The coloring of the devices has been updated to better reflect their general status on the network. More info can be found in the Viewer Manual.

Improved Device Management

Two-Way Ranging Configuration

The ability to get Two-Way Ranging (TWR) data between anchors has been added to the CUWB Manager. This data provides the calculated distance between two anchors. Options exist to either configure TWR between individual anchors or between one anchor and all other anchors on the network.

Network Summary

A new page has been added to the CUWB Manager to give a summary of the network while it is running. This page will give information on the total number of devices and device types that are configured for the network compared to the number that are currently on the network. It also provides an easy way to see the total number of devices that are transmit or receive synchronized.

Additional Features

NGINX Reverse Proxy

New documentation has been added on how to set up NGINX to handle authentication and using self-sign certificates for the CUWB Manager site.

New And Upgraded CDP Data Items

The following data items have been upgraded or added as of the CUWB 3.3 %release: Anchor Health Information V5 and Global Ping Timing Report V1.

Anchor Health Information V5 has added a new field, Beacons Late, that indicates the number of tag beacons that were late from the anchor since the last Anchor Health information was sent.

Global Ping Timing Report V1 was added, which can be used to help determine if there are any network latency issues being encountered.
