The network view infobox

The network view infobox shows information specific to IP devices and their radios however there are some elements that are common to all infoboxes in any view.

  • Infobox orientation - Can be vertical (downwards arrow) or horizontal (leftwards arrow). This feature only has an effect when multiple assets are selected. This control is available for all views.
    • The vertical view will have each selected asset displayed one on top of another.
    • The horizontal view will have each selected asset displayed side by side, next to each other.
  • Follow asset - Will lock the camera to the asset. If the asset is moving the camera will follow the asset. This control is available for all views.
  • Asset section - Will show information about an asset.
  • IP device section - Will show information about an IP device installed on the selected asset. A single asset can have more than one IP device on it.
  • Radio section - Will show information about the radio(s) on an IP device installed on the selected asset. A single IP device can have more than one radio on it.
