Silvanet Deployment app

Deploy Silvanet sensors, Mesh Gateways and Border Gateways using Packets displayed in the Silvanet Deployment app


The Silvanet Deployment app runs on a Smartphone to allow users to bring their Silvanet deployment information with them into the forest without having to carry a laptop around with them.

This app displays all pending and deployed Packets. These Packets were built using the Site Management app.

After opening a Packet, the app displays a list of the devices to be deployed, including their planned GPS locations.

Once the planned GPS location for a device is found, the Deployment app allows a user to add the device's Device ID which links the current location (longitude and latitude) to the location of the device. This information is then uploaded to the Silvanet Cloud.
