To upgrade UE firmware from the OMC:

3/8/17 UPDATE: Stability issues were found in version 1.0.1 which causes the CPE to lock-up after a 15-day runtime. The link has been replaced with version 1.0.3 which is a stop-gap version until the stability bug is fully resolved. Version 1.0.3 adds an automatic reboot feature which reboots the CPE every 7 days.

This one is not for the 2.5GHz ODUs, right?


#3

This version is for 2.5GHz ODUs as well. :slight_smile:


#4

Having an issue after updating firmware, it does not complete after waiting for 15 mins then when I click out of it , I can’t log into the cpe via 192.168.1.1. Any thoughts? CPE still has connectivity to internet tho.


#5

CPE IP address will change to 192.168.254.1 after upgrade.


#6

Do the CPE units not get/give a LAN IP while not associated to it’s LTE AP? I’m looking to upgrade firmware in-shop before deploying customer equipment.

Thanks.


#7

By default, the CPE has DHCP server enabled and will hand out an IP address over the LAN interface. Please note that the CPE IP address changes to 192.168.254.1 after the upgrade.

I have also updated the post to link to version 1.0.3 as version 1.0.1 has a critical stability issue.
