Deploying a Project

  1. Deploy the QPE server at the customer’s facility.
  2. What is the IP address of the QPE server?
  3. Does the QPE server have access to the internet?
    1. If not, is the Offline Module enabled on the Locator subscription?'
  4. What is the DHCP scope reserved for the Locators?
    1. If spanning multiple subnets, have Options 43 and 60 been configured?
      1. Option 43: the IP address of the QPE Server
      2. Option 60: Quuppa LD
  5. If possible, mount all of the Locators with the LED indicator light oriented in the same direction.
  6. Check that all of the Locators and Ethernet cables are numbered and labelled appropriately. This will help with maintaining and troubleshooting the infrastructure.
  7. Are all the installed Locators visible in the QPE Locator details page?
    1. If not, verify necessary UDP ports 22100 and 22101 are open in both directions on any firewalls between the Locators and the QPE.
    2. Also test cable terminations at both ends of the Ethernet cable.
  8. Start the Locator configuration by performing the Identification, XYZ and Focus wizards for each Locator.
    1. Check that you have identified the correct Locator when running the Identification wizard.
    2. Use a laser measuring device mounted on a tripod when taking the X,Y and Z measurements.
      1. Be precise when setting the XY anchor points on the floor plan for all measurements.
    3. Focus to an ‘angle of error’ of no more than 4.0 degrees, ideally less than 2.0 degrees.
      1. If possible, focus from 90 degree angles as you can use the pre-positioned arrows for ‘direction focused from’.
  9. Once all of the Locators have been measured and focused, upload the project to the Quuppa Customer Portal and sync the file to the QPE.
  10. Update the server to run the latest available version of the QPE.
  11. Update the firmware of all of the Locators to the latest applicable version.
  12. Verify a tag’s physical location using the QPE Web Console. Conduct accuracy testing at various locations throughout the tracking area.
    1. If unexpected variances or anomalies exist, please discuss them with your Quuppa Sales Engineer or the Quuppa Support team. Binary and/or Catalina logs may be requested to troubleshoot any areas that don’t meet design expectations.
