In the upper left corner of the tablet screen the cloud connection icon and USB trident should be present at all times.

12. Cloud Connection Icon- Upon connecting the tablet to Wifi a data connection will be established to the cloud for transmission of collected data from Smart Devices via the CCU to the cloud. A blue cloud indicates data is being transmitted from the CCU to the cloud. A yellow cloud indicates no data is being transmitted from the CCU to the cloud. (Quick Tip: If you see a yellow cloud icon check the usb cable and verify WiFi connection)   

13. MKT Logger Icon- MTK Logger is an application responsible for mobile, network, system logs and modem log. Provides the ability to use all the logs in one user interface.(Runs by default)

14. USB Symbol (USB Trident) - Is another very important indicator.  (Fun Fact:The term USB trident was said to be modeled to mimic the trident of Neptune, the mighty Dreizack). This icon indicates a USB connected between the tablet and the control mote (CM or base). You will also have a ''CM Connection Status Online'' notification if connected properly.
