Assuming you are already logged in to the Celona Orchestrator, go to the
Edge Clusters page and click the
CREATE NEW button on the top right corner.
Give the Edge Cluster a name. We suggest creating a naming convention that will help you understand what it is and where it is, the information required for ongoing operations.
Select the Deployment Region for the Celona Edge Cluster, this would be the region where the Edge Cluster is physically deployed.
If the Deployment Region selected is the
US (United States),
You can now select your preferred SAS Account. Options will be:
[Default] Celona - Federated Wireless Account (Recommended)
Celona - Google SAS Account
Your Custom SAS Accounts - Refer to this document for additional details
If the Deployment Region selected is
Non-US (All Countries except the United States),
you directly select the PLMN ID for the network next.
Next set the PLMN ID & PLMN Name.
PLMN ID- The Celona network is identified using Public Land Mobile Network Identity (PLMN-ID) which consists of a three-digit mobile country code (MCC) and a three-digit mobile network code (MNC).
For US deployments,
PLMN IDis defaulted to
315010. 315010 is designated for CBRS operation.
For International deployments,
PLMN IDis defaulted to
PLMN IDcan also be set to a custom value
Note that Celona SIM cards are pre-programmed to work with
PLMN ID 315010or
999503. To use a custom
PLMN IDyou will need a custom SIM profile. Please contact Celona Support team if you want to use a custom
PLMN Name- Descriptive identifier for the Celona Network. Network name (
Celona) is pre-programmed in the SIM card. End devices with a display show the
PLMN Nameon the screen. Some devices allow the network to override the value pre-programmed in the SIM card. This configuration enables admin users to customize the
PLMN namedisplay on the device upon attach.
The default network name can be over-written by a user-configured custom network name
The next step is configuring
DHCP mode for your Edge to operate in
Relay/Client mode to manage IP addresses for connected devices.
You will notice that the default DHCP mode is set to Relay, but you can change this to have your Edge operate in Client mode instead by toggling the chosen option.
This can be done when creating a new cluster or editing an existing one from the cluster details page.
Connected devices will NOT lose connection when editing an existing edge cluster. Once their DHCP leases are due for renewal, the edge will facilitate an IP address for them in the newly configured mode.
Note: Best practice recommendation is to have a minimum of 3 nodes in an Edge Cluster for a production Celona network. Pilot networks can be supported via a single node Edge cluster.
Enable HA Cluster functionality using the toggle option. You will be prompted to supply -
Static IP address - This IP address will be used to create the VRRP interface that Celona APs will communicate with. It must be reachable by all Celona APs assigned to that cluster.
VRRP ID - Specify a VRRP ID to avoid conflict with any VRRP ID currently in use.

Edge Cluster. Click

Edge Cluster creation.
