How to Integrate:
Create a group:
Goto Groups -> List -> Add -> Enter the Group name "Siemens" -> Add
Select your country for "Regulatory Domain".
Select the SNMP Version you prefer under "Universal Devices, Routers and Switches". I have selected SNMPv2


Add the Siemens Switch in Airwave:
Device Setup -> Add -> Select "Siemens Switch" -> Add
Set the following values
IP Address: //IP address of the Siemens Switch
Community String: //Whatever community string you configured on the Siemens Switch
Select the Group to "Siemens", that you created earlier.
