Custom fields permit to add further characteristics for differentiation and internal organisation to managed routers.
The icom Router Management for all router models based on icom OS permits roll-outs of device firmware, configurations, security certificates and applications.
An individual configuration per device is to be performed on a group of routers. In this example, the configuration is to be made depending on the available WAN/Internet technology of the respective router. The use case is exemplary and can be used for any configuration options. The configuration can be made, for example, depending on device location, cellular provider or connected/existing network devices. This requires an individual information that is used when creating the update packages for each device.
Custom fields in the icom Router Management provide the option to add individual information. A separate field for the identification of the WAN connection is added in this case. The user must then add the type of the WAN connection for each router.
