Summary

This article identifies best practices for migrating from the WiPipe Central (WPC) platform to Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM) with as little disruption to connectivity as possible.


Requirements

  1. Active WiPipe Central (WPC) account
  2. Managed devices enrolled in Enterprise Cloud Manager (ECM)

Directions

Inventory Devices

First determine how many managed devices, listed by model number, are currently deployed.

Determine Compatibility

Not all Cradlepoint products support ECM. Compare the list of model numbers to the ECM Compatibility list, click here

Remove Unused Devices From WiPipe

WPC does not automatically remove device when they are no longer in use. If a router was replaced with new hardware, the old device may still be listed in WPC. Carefully review the groups and devices in WPC and remove any entries that are no longer used, or move the unused entries to a group that will not be migrated.

Upgrade Device Firmware

This is the most critical part of preparing to migrate to ECM. In order for devices to communicate with ECM the recommended firmware version is 4.4.0. Any device running 1.x or 2.x firmware cannot be upgraded to support ECM; support of these legacy devices is still in development. To avoid any configuration settings loss, firmware versions prior to 4.2.1 should be upgraded in a "stair-stepping" method as described in Upgrading Router Firmware for ECM-Compatibility.

To determine the router firmware version before installing a router see: Check Firmware Version on a Series 3 Cradlepoint

Once all devices are running ECM-compatible firmware, the next step is to migrate groups: WPC-to-ECM-Migration-Groups

Additional questions about the migration process can be directed to the WPC to ECM Migration Coordinator at ECMMigration@Cradlepoint.com
