Adding a Venue

You must add a venue before you can connect your APs to the AP Management Service to provision the LTE service. By default, a sample venue named My Venue exists. If you want to assign your APs to a venue other than the default, you can add a new venue.

Follow these steps to add a venue.

  1. On the Dashboard, click Venues.
    The Venues page appears.
  2. In the upper-right corner of the page, click Add Venue.
    The Create New Venue dialog box appears.
  3. In the Venue name field (required), type a name for the venue that you are creating.
  4. In the Description field, type a brief description of the venue.
  5. In the Address field (required), type the address where the venue is located.
    You can enter either a full or partial address. For example, if you type 350 W Java Dr, Google displays the location that matches the address. Select the correct address.
  6. In Address Notes, add notes or comments about this venue. For example, you can add the floor number or suite number.
  7. Under the Venue LTE Settings section, select either IPv4 or IPv6 for LTE DHCP Allocation .
    A venue can work with either with IPv4 or IPv6 DHCP allocation. After the venue is created, the DHCP allocation cannot be changed.
  8. (Optional) Select the Go to floor plan to add a floor plan check box to create a floor plan.
  9. Click Create.
    The message Creating venue... appears as the AP Management Service creates the venue in your account. The Add New Floor Plan dialog box appears. Make sure that the Go to floor plan to add a floor plan check box is selected.
  10. Enter a name for the floor plan in the Floor Plan Name text field.
  11. Enter the floor number or click the Up or Down arrow and select the floor floor number text field. The "0" (zero) represents a ground floor.
  12. Click the Upload button to upload a floor plan image.
  13. To calibrate the floor plan to a map, select the Next, calibrate the floor plan to a map check box and click the Add button. The system displays Creating floor plan.. and then the Uploading image.... Next, the Floor Plan Calibration dialog box prompts you to calibrate the floor plan image to a map.
    Note: Calibrating the floor plan allows you to properly geo-position the APs which is mandatory for AP-SAS interaction. To perform calibration, click and position the two pins on corresponding features on the floor plan and on the map.
  14. After the calibration, click the Save button.
    System displays Updating floorplan.... The newly added venue appears in with the calibrated floor plan.
  15. Verify that the name of the venue you have created appears on the venue list.
You have completed creating a venue.
Note: Click the pencil icon if you want to edit the venue. Click the globe icon to recalibrate the floor plan.
