How do I change the PPP Mode of the LD8?

Where available Quantum should be used for all LD8 configuration. This article will explain how to change the LD8 PPP mode using either Quantum or Web user interface (Webui).

VERIPOS offers two PPP services, Ultra and Apex. Both allow for decimetre accuracy positioning, have no range limitations and can be used globally. Note: Users should ensure that the  configured PPP mode matches the service activated by the Helpdesk for the LD8. Also note changing the PPP Mode will restart the PPP computation. Upon change the PPP solution will require time to re-converge. During the re-convergence a Standard or Standard2 computation will be used, until the PPP solution is available
