Frequent questions

Do I need a fibre connection?

Yes. Our Nokia Beacons only work with a fibre connection. If you don't have fibre at your workplace, we recommend getting it installed if available in your area.

How many LAN ports are on the Nokia Beacon 2?

There is one LAN port available on each Beacon. It can be used to directly connect a device via Ethernet cable for faster performance. If you need to connect multiple devices via ethernet, you might like to consider purchasing a multi-port switch. 

What are the technical specifications of the Nokia Beacon 2?
Why is a mesh system better than a range extender or repeater?

WiFi extenders and repeaters can help extend your wireless connection, but they do so in slightly different ways and can create new issues.

A repeater rebroadcasts your signal by creating a new network connection that you need to join in different areas of your premises. While that can increase WiFi coverage, it also reduces bandwidth of your original network and becomes a hassle when moving around your site.

An extender, on the other hand, does not create a new network, but instead connects to your network via cable. Using a wired connection won’t impact your WiFi bandwidth but can be a problem if you don’t want to install cabling throughout your premises.

We recommend a mesh system, like our Nokia Beacons, which extend WiFi connectivity by using multiple nodes that work together to create one large network. This provides the best of both worlds, seamless wireless coverage and better overall performance.

Can I choose my own WiFi network name and password?

Yes. A default SSID and WiFi key is displayed on the base of the Beacon connected to your fibre ONT. You can easily change these credentials by logging into the Nova Hub at novaenergy.co.nz or using the Nova Hub app.

What do the LED colours on the Nokia Beacon mean?

Blue – network connection is good.

White – the unit is booting up. The light may pulse while establishing connection.

Red – no connection to the internet. The light may pulse during factory reset or connecting.

Yellow – link quality to the main router Beacon is poor. Move the Beacon closer to the main router Beacon.
