Another release, another step closer to documentation nirvana: welcome to netTerrain 9.1. 9.1 marks the second incarnation of the 9.0 series (aka “Europe” as you’ve probably noted in the guide covers that feature striking images from the continent).

With netTerrain 9.1, we worked on the usual run of new features, small fixes, and improvements, with many tickets related to the Collector, including major Layer 2, CDP, & LLDP link discovery improvements.

Below is a bulleted list of the larger items which, if you’re a current 9.0 user, may be relevant:

Major netTerrain enhancements

  • New Re-splicing feature for outside plant
  • Per-strand splicing
  • New API for label printer extensions
  • QR and barcode reader for mobile app
  • Major upgrades, improvements, and look and feel for DCIM’s included Environmental Monitoring module

Minor netTerrain enhancements

  • Ability distinguish API/collector changes in audit from manual ones
  • ACRA: ability to use existing cables for patching
  • Support for feet in map coordinates
  • Edge to edge circuit creation support for unspliced fiber cables
  • Overall usability and design improvements
  • New feature that lets you copy and paste pictures straight into netTerrain as images or types
  • Several other minor bug fixes and improvements
