Bluetooth Setup

The Alta Labs switches include Bluetooth functionality allowing for seamless setup using the Alta Labs mobile app.

Mobile App

Monitor and manage your networks from the convenience of your mobile device. The management interface is easily accessible via mobile app or web browser. Sign up for an Alta Labs account using just your name, email, and password or use Google Authentication.

Scalable Cloud-Based Management

Alta Labs provides an intuitive and easy‑to‑use cloud‑based management interface for Alta Labs access points and switches. Designed for optimum scalability using a high‑availability architecture for the ultimate in convenience and worldwide accessibility. Built on a worldwide content delivery network to optimize response and latency, our global cloud infrastructure ensures geographically optimized connectivity through our redundant network. Deploy and manage multiple sites quickly and easily. Add, delete, or rename sites instantly. Toggle between sites from a site selection drop‑down. Each site contains its own data set.

Egress and Ingress Rate Limiting

The switches offer egress and ingress rate limiting. This allows inbound and outbound traffic to be limited to a portion of the available bandwidth per connection. For example, a hotel may want to provide guests with free 5 Mbps internet download (egress) connections but require guests pay an extra fee for 100+ Mbps speeds. The upload (ingress) speeds from the guests devices can also be limited.

Alta Labs Cloud Management Platform

The Alta Labs Cloud Management Platform provides many features that can be utilized for on your Alta Labs Switches.

Customizable Dashboard

Customize your dashboard with the information you want to see: IP address, Load, number of devices, MAC address, firmware version, network color assignment, and real‑time status details.

Device Cards

Status Snapshots

View upload and download throughput with a visual timeline on the dashboard for each device displayed along with the number of connected devices, average processor load, channel load, and average connected devices. Select a snapshot of the last minute, last hour, last two days, or last two months.
