Question

How much data does being connected to NetCloud Manager consume?

Answer
  • Recent data shows that the average data usage is approximately 5–10 MB per router per month. This reflects what we expect to see in "typical" scenarios when routers have mostly default settings. Many settings could affect this amount, including generating lots of alerts, exporting lots of logs, and especially editing the connection pulse interval (default 120 seconds). A significantly faster connection pulse (e.g., 10 seconds) could increase data usage to 50 or even 100 MB per router per month, whereas a significantly slower pulse (e.g., 900 seconds) could decrease data usage to less than 1 MB per router per month (but runs the risk of slowing down the connection so much that the connection is broken and needs to reestablish itself, which uses additional data).
  • There are many variables that affect data usage and therefore Cradlepoint does not guarantee that a router will use any particular amount of data. These numbers are only provided to give a rough estimate of the amount of data usage you should expect based on data from other routers in the field.
