Note: AP by Xirrus is a separate modular device containing both the controller and radio control modules.
*Note by vendor: by testing with the XR-600, you cover interoperability with all Xirrus products, except the X2 & XR-320
Version XR-620 has two independent radio modules operating on either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz switchable in management. The device is fully compatible with SOCIFI. This unit has a throughput of about 867 Mbps and serves 240 users (120 per one radio). On the market there are more powerful units. A DHCP server uses an external DHCP server in the network where it is connected, you can define internal DHCP server. The configuration is then more complex.
MAC address for administration
MAC address, needed for setting in the SOCIFI Dashboard, is available after sign in to the web portal of device management console. In the tab Array / Information MAC addresses are listed next to the names of Ethernet interface, specifically for values Gigabit 1 and Gigabit 2. During the tests it was proofed that both gigabit interfaces are standardly connected to 802.3ad Trank, so that they are presented in the admin system only by the MAC address port Gigabit 1.
Setting SSID, Hotspot, Radius Server and WalledGarden
Setting of these services can be found in the menu SSIDs / SSID Management. Given that the SSID of the network can not be edited later, it is necessary to know the desired name in the beginning. Otherwise, you need to select the entire section again, including the gradual entry WalledGarden domain. Create SSID networks (in the table fill in the name next to the Create button and then click on to create). Then for the selected SSID enter the following parameters:
select desired band or e.g. Both

The newAllow login through social networks does not include the Google login. The reason is that some Android based devices are not redirected to the Captive Portal when the user gets connected to WiFi network. In case you'd like to add it you need to do following:
Step 2: Click on the "Hotspots" tab on the left sidebar
Step 3: Click on the “Add a new hotspot” button located on the top right corner on the screen (pictured below)
Note: A pop-up window will appear (below)
Step 4: Select the Wi-Fi hardware manufacturer from the drop down menu
Step 5: Enter the serial number or MAC address (depending on the specific equipment manual)of your equipment. You can add multiple hotspots at once.
Step 6: Set your Network location (this step is essential for correct ad targeting)
Step 7: In the pop-up window type your location or just move the marker on the map and click on the save button to confirm the selection. This address is used for ad GEO targeting.
Step 7: Click Save
Note: Newly added hotspot are marked as (Hotspot pending). After the first user connects to the hotspot via SOCIFI, the status will automatically change and appear as(Active) within an hour. Get your first connections to test if it works properly.
