Initial Cloud support for Fusion Switch is released

Overview

We're excited to announce initial Cloud support for IgniteNet's Fusion 24-port PoE Switch!

What does this initial release include?

  • Monitoring and historical stats
  • Offline alerting
  • Remote firmware upgrades*

You can get the latest firmware (v1.0.2.3) from our support site here.

Note: Your switch must running a firmware version of at least 1.0.2.2+ in order to upgrade the firmware from the cloud.

Next, let's see what's different in the Cloud's UI.

Dashboard page

From the device dashboard of your switch, you can view and monitor the "live data" directly from your switch, such as temperature, port status, power usage, and port traffic.

You can also remotely reboot your switch from the LIVE ACTIONS menu.

How to upgrade your switch

  • Navigate to the System->Files page

  • Next, from the menu near the top of the page, choose the "Copy System File" option alt
  • Now choose "HTTP Upload", "Firmware" for the file type, "runtime.bix" for the "Destination File Name", and finally, upload the firmware file from your file system under the "Source File Name" option. alt
  • Now click Apply.
  • After you get a confirmation, you'll need to reboot the device for it to take affect. To do this, go to System->Maintenance, and click the "Apply" button under the "Schedule a System Reboot" heading. alt

What's next?

Basic configuration support and remote troubleshooting fetch will be added early next year, based on demand. Is this important to you? Then please let us know!
