Introduction

The BBSM 5.0 to 5.1 Upgrade Utility is a Microsoft Windows application that upgrades the BBSM 5.0 SP1 system to BBSM 5.1, build 21. This upgrade utility does the following:

Uninstalls Microsoft Proxy Server and installs Microsoft ISA Server

Uninstalls MSDE 7.0 and installs MSDE 2000

Upgrades BBSM server files that were changed between BBSM 5.0 Service Pack 1 and BBSM 5.1

Installs Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2)

Installs Windows 2000 Hotfixes

New and Changed Information

BBSM 5.1 is built on the baseline functionality of BBSM 5.0 with the addition of new features and changes to some existing features. The following sections identify these features and changes. Refer to the Cisco Building Broadband Service Manager Software Configuration Guide for details and configuration requirements.

New BBSM Version 5.1 Features

BBSM version 5.1 offers these new or improved features:

Access Code Management

This feature provides high-speed Internet access for event presenters, exhibitors, and attendees. Access Code Management can differentiate hotel conference services by using an access code system that offers bandwidth management and audit reports.

Access Code Reports

These reports are enhanced to allow the option of viewing each customer's access codes, unused access codes, and the history of used access codes.

Building Broadband Service Director (BBSD)

BBSD software is included with BBSM 5.1, but it must be installed on a separate server. BBSD cannot be installed on a BBSM server. The BBSD feature enables a central system in the data center to manage remote BBSM systems. The primary functions include:

Backing up key BBSM system data

Performing centralized reporting across a group of BBSM servers

Pushing BBSM web content pages across a group of BBSM servers or to an individual BBSM server in the field

Pushing BBSM Walled Garden lists across a group of BBSM servers or to an individual BBSM server in the field

Restoring key BBSM system data

Hardware Dependent Port Test

This feature provides the ability to configure the inter-packet delay, packet size, and ping interval for the port test through an easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) on the WEBconfig dashboard.

Port Hopping

This feature allows the end user to seamlessly move from one wireless access point to another without having to re-authenticate. A user can move between network hardware such as switch ports or wireless access points in a BBSM network and maintain an active session in the BBSM server. The port hopping feature can be used in either a wireless or wired network layout. When using wireless network architecture, this feature improves the user's experience by allowing mobility between wireless access points with uninterrupted service.

Port Test Report

This feature allows a user to quickly access port test information for different BBSM ports. The time of the last port test and the amount of packet loss, if any, are immediately determined for each selected port.

RADIUS Accounting Support

BBSM previously supported only RADIUS Authentication. Version 5.1 adds RADIUS Accounting support, which allows BBSM to automatically transmit accounting records to a RADIUS server. By using the RADIUS NAS identifier combined with a RADIUS session ID, unique records can be tracked across multiple BBSM servers.

RADIUS User-Selected Bandwidth

This feature allows the end-user to select a bandwidth from a drop-down list.

Single and Multiple Day Billing Options

For an extended stay at a hotel, users can choose different billing methods. They can be charged on a daily basis for one price or for a block of days at a lower daily price.

Support for Maximum Active Sessions

This feature allows the administrator to assign a maximum number of concurrent sessions, thereby preventing the WAN link from becoming over-subscribed. If a user starts a session that exceeds the configured limit, BBSM redirects the user to a system busy web page that can be customized.

Web Printing

This feature allows web-based printing with network or local printers. KeyView Pro 6.5 software must be purchased and installed to support this feature.

BBSM Version 5.1 Software Changes

The following changes have been made:

Microsoft Proxy 2.0 replaced with Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server

SQL Server 7.0 MSDE replaced with SQL Server 2000 MSDE
