New Features in Release 1.4

Cisco DNA Spaces Dashboard

The following new features are added to the Cisco DNA Spaces dashboard:

Access Code Manager

Cisco DNA Spaces now provides a new User Role, Access Code Manager. This user role enables you to control the internet provisioning in your business premises using the access codes. You can create access codes for your various locations and restrict the internet access for these locations using the access codes. That is, the customers can access the internet only after providing an access code configured for that location.

Cisco DNA Spaces enables you to share with the customers the access codes that you have created. You can specify the validity period for an access code.You can configure to have a single code value for an access code, or to change the code value weekly or monthly. You can define the time for which the customers can access the internet using an access code. Cisco DNA Spaces also enables you set the bandwidth limit, including download and upload bandwidth limits for access codes.

You can define multiple access codes for a single location. For example, if you want to provide a high speed internet only for your platinum members, you can create an access code with maximum bandwidth and create another access code with limited bandwidth. You can then share the access codes based on the type of the customer.
