The MobileConnect system supports several network scenarios, described in detail in the MobileConnect Network Whitepaper. You can choose the most suitable one for your network architecture. Below you can find the simplest setup using a single network for streaming and control.
Streaming network - used for the public devices
Control network - used for control of the MobileConnect Station and access to the MobileConnect Manager web interface
The MobileConnect system also supports NAT and Eduroam.
More advanced scenarios and recommendations are covered in detail in the Network Whitepaper, such as:
Using two separate networks for streaming and control, for better network separation and improved security. Make sure the two networks use different IP ranges.
Add a proxy to limit access to the MobileConnect Manager
The MobileConnect Manager requires the following ports to be open:
Port 8000 needs to be accessible from the mobile clients.
Port 80/443 needs to be accessible from the MobileConnect Station and the systems used to access the Manager interface.
Since MobileConnect Station firmware 6.1.0, port 8383 needs to be accessible from the MobileConnect Station. In case you have this firmware version, see the corresponding documentation at https://docs.sennheiser-connect.com/1.2/.
The MobileConnect Station requires the following ports to not be filtered:
Port 8005, incoming, TCP
Port range 3200 to 3400, UDP
