What is the difference between Organization module and Site module in GDMS platform?
Please see the comparison table below:
One enterprise can create multiple independent organizations to manage different devices.
Site module is used to create an internal multi-level groups to manage different devices.
Support assigning different permissions to different organizations. The data permission is managed separately.
For one organization, the devices, SIP accounts, and templates are managed by the current organization administrator. When the administrator tries to assign the SIP account to a certain device, the administrator can only select the SIP account which belongs to the current organization.
Assigning different permissions to different sites is not allowed.
If you have N customer companies, you can consider each customer company as an organization, and assign the management permissions of this organization to the administrator of this customer company.
1. If you would like to divide the devices into multiple groups (e.g., different departments or locations), you can create a site for the batch of devices for management for an operation such as upgrading firmware.
2. It is only used as a classification for devices and does not assign management permissions.
When I modify the SIP account or update the configuration manually in my device, will it be synchronized into GDMS?
No. If the user modifies the SIP account configuration or other settings on the device itself, the settings will not be synchronized to GDMS. GDMS does not support synchronization backwards (from device to GDMS).
When will the model template be pushed into the device?
When the device is associated with the GDMS platform for first time, the device will fetch the model template and account settings from GDMS. The device will also fetch the template and account settings after a factory reset.
Which GDMS server do I need to select? US or EU?
GDMS Platform US server and EU server are independent servers—data is not shared between the two. Users can still use US GDMS server even if the current location is EU. If users want to transfer all data from US server to EU server, users will need to export the important data such as SIP accounts, SIP servers, templates, and import them into EU server. Users can add the devices to EU server to manage the device as in US server afterwards.
We separated the GDMS server to US server and EU server due to GDPR policy (General Data Protection Regulation). There is no influence of usage if the user still selects to use US server, but the user needs to follow GDPR policy and take the responsibility of GDPR policy. It is recommended to transfer all data from US server to EU server if the current location is EU.
