BreezeCOMPACT 1000

Prerequisites

  • BreezeCOMPACT 1000
  • Mikrotik RB4011 router
  • Configuration data to connect the eNodeB to Monogoto cloud Reach out to [email protected] if you haven't received the config data yet

Getting Started

The BreezeCOMPACT can work in two ways:
  1. 1.
    Regular configuration - Network Control and Data is going to Monogoto’s cloud
  2. 2.
    Local Break Out configuration (LBO) - Network Control and Data are separated. The Control messages are going to Monogoto’s cloud, the user data is going straight to the (local) Internet via the router that is connected to the eNodeB.
In this manual, we are using the Regular configuration.
  • Connect the ethernet cable from port 1 of the Mikrotik RB4011 router to the internet (Mikrotik will use DHCP in order to obtain its WAN IP address) and connect the power cable.
  • Connect the BreezeCOMPACT to the Mikrotik RB4011 router using an ethernet cable.
  • Connect an ethernet cable from your PC to the DATA3 local management port of the COMPACT1000.
  • On the PC, define the IP address as 192.168.1.100/24
  • Connect the power cable to the BreezeCOMPACT and wait until the eNodeB to boot up.
