Hi! We’re currently running 75 or so devices in production and we’re looking to support cellular connections in addition to WiFi soon. We’re not currently using BalenaOS but we’re pretty heavily looking into it.
I read this line in the docs and I was hoping to get more background. All of our devices are currently using ConnMan so I was curious what motivated the switch to NetworkManager. What specifically was ConnMan lacking with regards to cellular support? If possible we’d like to stick to ConnMan!
With balenaOS 2.0, connectivity management changed from ConnMan to NetworkManager. NetworkManager allows balenaOS more flexibility when configuring the network setup, and, in conjunction with ModemManager, allows balenaOS to offer first class GSM/Cellular support.
