- Supports multiple users and multiple nodes per user
- User management: different access rights for each job
- Stores all the node information a Wireless MAN will need: location, height, area, region, backbone & AP interfaces, roof view photos, subnets & hosts in a node etc.
- Provides an easy (but powerful) way of searching for specific nodes
- Using NASA's SRTM data, it graphs the line-of-sight (and Fresnel zone) between two nodes and calculates Free space loss for the distance between them
- Uses Google Maps to show the nodes and their links on the map.
- Can be used to manage the distribution of IP Ranges and forward/reverse DNS assigned to each node (Hostmaster)
- Fully themeable interface (using simple (X)HTML templates)
- Support for localization; Unicode/UTF-8 support
- Integrates with BIND Nameserver for serving the DNS zones, PowerDNS integration planned
- A WHOIS server is provided that serves the data using the WHOIS protocol
- Installation page
- Administration page (SRTM file upload)
- Peer notification on new link creation (BB or client)
- Monitoring links using graphs (snmp data)
- Monitoring of IP layer (pings, latency etc.)
- Radio coverage (Google maps, Google earth)
- PowerDNS integration
- Statistics (new nodes, new links)
- Action logging
