For the end user, a limited number of configuration options will be available. You can reach the Configuration Center by clicking the ‘Configuration’ button in the T-Mobile Communication Center UI.
The end user will be allowed to change the following parameters in the first tab.
My Application tab :
This lets the end user set up functionality buttons of their own preference. The user enters an application, a function button and a button icon that should be merged into the customers button.
In this configuration tab, the user has the option to set default/install devices, reset default settings and choose frequency band.
The default devices set up are the ones that the application will use when trying to connect to the different network types.
The Set... button will display the devices installed on the computer.
▪ Select Frequency Band sets the frequency band that should be used. This should not be used unless asked to do so by the application. It is dependent on the specific device used, if automatic frequency set, is enabled or not.
▪ Install Device will allow the end user to install, for example, a new PC card. Simply choose the device in the left pull-down list and click OK to start installation.
▪ Restore Settings will restore all settings to factory default as when the software was initially installed.
The Advanced Configuration should only be used by IT-administrators or equivalent. This button will take you to the Customization Tool. This area can be password protected. The first time you tick this button you are adviced to enter a password. Leave the field blank, to enter the first time.
