TCS Release Notes - 2023-04.2 rev 2

Intended Audience

This document is intended for system administrators and engineers interested in the design, daily management, operations, and troubleshooting of Tarana G1 networks including base nodes, remote nodes, and the Tarana Cloud Suite (TCS).

To benefit from this document, the reader must have a good working knowledge of radio frequency (RF), wireless systems, and networking concepts. 

The G1 products are designed to be installed and used by trained professionals and require that such professionals adhere to all relevant regulatory, safety, and telecom industry best practice guidelines for outdoor radios.  This document assumes that the Tarana G1 base node and remote nodes are installed onsite and are connected to the TCS.

New Features and Enhancements

This release includes the following new features and product enhancements.

Base Node Telemetry Streaming

Many companies use network management systems that aggregate telemetry from multiple network platforms. TCS now provides a way for companies to configure Tarana base nodes to send telemetry data directly to third-party network management systems using the gRPC Network Management Interface (gNMI).

Customer Application

By default, TCS collects all telemetry data through the base node. If you have a network management system (NMS) that collects and aggregated telemetry data from multiple sources, then you can now configure your Tarana network to stream telemetry data directly to your aggregating NMS.

Feature Description

You can configure base node telemetry streaming either globally or at the sector level. When you configure streaming globally, all base nodes in the network stream telemetry data to the NMI (network management interface). When you configure streaming at the sector level, you configure it as an exception to the global configuration, meaning that if you activate telemetry streaming globally, then all sectors stream telemetry except those you specifically exclude at the sector level. Likewise, if you deactivate telemetry streaming globally, then no sectors stream telemetry data except those you specifically activate at the sector level.

However, to activate telemetry streaming, you first configure TCS with the telemetry collection endpoint server information.

To configure TCS to use a telemetry streaming collection endpoint, do the following:

  1. Navigate to Admin > Network Configuration.

  2. Select the global organization name in the network entity tree to reveal the global settings.

  3. Select Edit at the bottom of the settings pane.

  4. Enter the metrics collector end point information:

    Destination Address: Enter the IP address of the host that receives the telemetry data from the base node

    Port: Enter the UDP port on which the host receives telemetry data.

    Streaming Interval: Select an appropriate interval for the base node to send telemetry data.

  5. You can select Done to commit the configuration changes and exit the configuration if no other changes are needed.

To configure base node telemetry streaming globally, do the following:

  1. Ensure that the telemetry collection endpoint is configured, and then toggle the Streaming switch on to activate the feature.

  2. Select Done to commit the configuration changes.

To configure base node telemetry streaming at the sector level, do the following:

  1. Navigate to Admin > Network Configuration.

  2. Navigate to the sector in the network entity tree, and then select the sector name to reveal the settings.

  3. Select Edit at the bottom of the settings pane.

  4. In the Metrics Collector End Point Configuration section, select Override.

  5. Toggle the Streaming switch to activate the feature at the sector.

  6. Select Done to commit the configuration changes.

In-GUI Release Notes Link

You can now access TCS release notes directly from the TCS interface using the Announcement ( icon-campaign-black-nosound-24dp.svg ) icon.

Customer Application

When Tarana releases important new TCS features, you can use the release notes to learn about the features and how you can use them to improve your network or to improve the experience of your network users.

Release notes also contain a list of know issues and a list of fixed issues, so you can use the release notes to make informed decisions about which features meet your specific performance needs.

Feature Description

To view the release notes from within the TCS interface, do the following:

  1. Select the Announcements ( icon-campaign-black-nosound-24dp.svg ) icon. TCS opens a new tab containing a list of recent release notes.

  2. Select the specific release notes document from the list.

Configuration Consistency Improvements

Customer Application

Feature Description

Fixed Issues

The following issues have been fixed in this release.




TCS was highlighting some devices as needing attention unnecessarily.


Base nodes could not accept remote node connections when a grant existed only Carrier1.

Remote nodes could not connect to the base node if the spectrum provided by the SAS for the remote node was different from the base node spectrum.


This fix applies only to devices running device software version 0.990 or later.

Known Issues

The following issues are known to exist in the current release. Where possible, a workaround appears in the Description column.




After an administrator attempts to reacquire spectrum, the CBRS Summary card displays old information.

Workaround: The card updates when the spectrum reacquisition is completed in about 30 seconds.


When a remote node disconnects from one base node and connects to another base node on different frequencies, a new grant can take up to 20 minutes.

Workaround: Select Reacquire Spectrum to request a new grant immediately.
