This section offers profile level configuration settings. The Profile Configuration helps to create profiles those can be reused as shared configuration for other sites. The variety of profiles are applicable to multiple sites. Hence if you make any change in the value of any profile, the change will reflect to all the sites linked to that profile automatically. You no need to make the changes for each site.
Following are the available types of profiles:
- Dynamic Routing Profiles
- QOS Profiles
- WAN Profiles
- Site Profiles
- Interface Profiles
The profiles are interdependent in nature.
To view profiles, navigate to Configuration > Profiles and select the profile you want to create.

The Add Export Filter Profile allows you to add an export filter profile. This section lists the Export Profile Name, Profile Availability, and Export Filters with Network Address/Mask, Prefix, Cost, Service Type, and Gateway IP Address.

The Quality of Service (QoS) section helps to create QoS profile by using the Add QoS Profile option. The QoS profile provides improved service to certain traffic. The goal of QoS is to provide priority including traffic type (Real-time, Interactive, and Bulk classes) and dedicated bandwidth. The bandwidth breakups are available in % values. This also improved loss characteristics.
You can also view or delete the existing QoS profile.
You can add a WAN link Profile by using the WAN Link Profile option.
You need to fill the WAN link info such as Profile Name, Access Type, Internet Category, LAN to WAN Rate (Mbps) info and so on to create a WAN profile.
You can create a site profile by selecting Create New or Select Template option from the drop-down menu of Add Site Profile.
To create a site profile, you need to create Site Details, Interfaces, and WAN Links.
You need to assign an interface for the site by using the Add Interface option.
