Note: Where available Quantum should be used for all LD8 configuration. This article will detail changing the PPP mode using either Quantum or terminal.
Changing PPP Mode via Quantum
From the Quantum main screen go to SETTINGS. Navigate to System Configuration > Receiver Management > Edit:
Within the Receiver Management - Edit page click the Position tab to open the PPP - Mode submenu:
VERIPOS offer two PPP solutions, Ultra and Apex. Both allow for decimetre accuracy positioning, have no range limitations and can be used globally. Within Quantum either PPP Mode can be selected as shown in the above image.
Once the PPP Mode has been changed select Apply, found at the bottom right-hand side of the page.
Note: Users should ensure that the Mode selected matches the service activated by the Helpdesk. Also note that care should be taken when changing the PPP Mode, as this will restart the PPP mode. Upon changing, the PPP solution will require time for convergence and during this time a Standard/Standard2 service will be output from the receiver, until the PPP service becomes available.
Changing PPP Mode via terminal
The LD8 WebUI provides a terminal with which to send commands and receive information from the unit. Using the latest version of Explorer, Chrome or Firefox browse to the IP address of the LD8 to access the WebUI. If the IP address isn't known see guide How do I find my LD8 IP address? The WebUI terminal can be accessed from the main page by clicking on the settings cog (⚙️) found at the top-right of the page, followed by the terminal icon (4th option down on right-hand side).
