Network Type Management

Network Types can be viewed and updated by selecting the Networks pull-down from the top menu, and selecting the Network Types item.

A selection list of existing Network Types is provided. To edit one, simply click on the name. To create a new one, click the “CREATE NETWORK TYPE” button.

From the LPWAN Server UI’s perspective, Network Type is a very simple thing. It’s just a name. That’s it.

But that name is very important. It gets tied to UI customization code. It tells us what data to expect for a particular network. For the most part, even a system administrator would not be adding a new Network Type without working with a developer who can make the Network Type name relate to the appropriate software in the system. But the ability to add or remove them is provided so irrelevant (or newly relevant) Network Types can be removed (or added) to the system.
