Cloud Access Point CA10 is a wireless networking hardware device intended for connecting CWL100 data loggers to Vaisala Jade Smart Cloud service. CA10 and CWL100 devices are associated with a specific cloud account when they are purchased, so there is no need for the user to do any device pairing.


CA10 requires an Internet connection for operation. If there is no network available at the installation location, you can provide the connection using a suitable mobile router. Note these network requirements:

  • The connected network must provide the IP address automatically using DHCP. Many corporate networks require connecting devices to be registered before they can connect. In that case, you must provide the MAC address of the access point to your IT administrator. The MAC address is marked on the front of the access point (near the Ethernet connector) and on its type label in the back.
  • CA10 must be able to connect to TCP port 443 (for Jade Smart Cloud service) and UDP port 123 (for Network Time Protocol service) through the firewall.
