The How-to Video Series is a set of tutorials designed to help new users to perform the key operations on AirVantage’s web user interface.
You should be able to perform the selected operation on your own by following the instructions in these videos. To keep the content simple, we have included only the basic instructions; for more details, please refer to the User Guide.
You may not find the tutorial illustrated with the hardware type you use, however, the principles of the AirVantage operations should apply to other hardware types.

How to configure and monitor the AirLink gateways?
Once a system is registered, you can use AirVantage to monitor and configure it remotely. Follow this tutorial to learn about basic configuration parameters, and how to apply them via a template. To watch the video version, click on the screen above. Or, if you prefer, follow the steps below at your own pace. 1 / Basics 2 / Templates This tutorial assumes that you have already seen how to register your device with AirVantage on the Register page.
Alert rules are configured from the Alert Rules section. For more information, see What is an Alert Rule? . To create a new alert rule Click on Configure > Alert Rules. Click on Create. The New Alert Rule page opens. Select a template. A template is an alert rule example with pre-filled conditions based on selected template. Optionally change some values of the pre-filled condition and add more conditions to your alert rule.
AirVantage is a centralized console designed to manage a large number of systems. Follow this tutorial to learn how to use of filters, labels and sorting methods to manage your entire fleet, or specific groups of systems. To watch the video version, click on the screen above. Or, if you prefer, follow the steps below at your own pace. 1 / Filters 2 / Labels 3 / Sorting Managing your fleet (hundreds or even thousands of gateways) can quickly become time-consuming if your management tool has not been designed for large deployments.
If you are an AirLink gateway user, the first step to using AirVantage is to register your devices in the system. Follow the steps below to learn how to register one or more AirLink gateways. 1 / Register 2 / Import Step 1: Register Gateway Before you can begin managing your AirLink gateways with AirVantage, you must first follow the device registration procedure. Registering a few devices can easily be done via the web interface.
How to remotely change the ACEmanager password on my ALEOS Gateway?
This functionality only applies to devices using MSCI to communicate with ALMS: MP, RV, GX, LS and ES devices from ALEOS firmware version 4.4.0 and onwards Raven, MP, PinPoint on firmware version 4.0.11 or later For devices that communicate with ALMS using LWM2M, the password field is no longer required. In this case, you can skip to Change the ACEmanager password for one device. The M3DA password will still be required for AAF applications.
AirVantage allows you to retrieve firmware data from your AirLink gateways. Follow this tutorial to learn how to create datasets to retrieve the firmware parameters from your gateways, and how to use the scheduling functionality to automate the operation. To watch the video version, click on the screen above. Or, if you prefer, follow the steps below at your own pace. 1 / Create 2 / retrieve 3 / Use Step 1: Create Dataset In AirVantage terminology, a “Dataset” is a list of ALEOS parameters that a user would like retrieved from their gateways.
You can upgrade the firmware on a single device or in bulk. The operation will handle the upgrade of the firmware as well as the radio module: if new radio module firmware is available, it is included with the ALEOS firmware package. Please watch this video tutorial for an overview. Identify the systems to upgrade Click on Monitor > Systems to view the list of your deployed AirLink Gateways The you will need to select one or several Systems from the list to be upgraded.
How to work with and create Driver Behavior reports
The Driver Behavior report describes the behavior of your fleet in terms of driving-related incidents over the course of the reporting period. The report tracks the following incidents: Hard Accelerations Hard Decelerations Cornering Speeding Incidents are triggered by exceeding configured (hard acceleration, hard deceleration, cornering) or posted thresholds (speeding) at the given location at the time of the incident. The report results include the ranking of the devices in a fully interactive data table and details of each incident that can be viewed in a fully interactive map.
The Trips report provides a series of views that display the location of selected devices and shows the route that they have taken based on GPS data, for a selected time frame. The Trips report plots the devices’ location as a continuous line on the map. This report is most useful for a single AirLink gateway or router over a relatively short period of time (for example, one gateway trip) and can be used to validate where a device was, and determine its behavior at a specific point in time.
