RTS 3.4.8 for Nova R9 TDD base stations has been released. This version includes many bug fixes as well as adding important features like uplink 64 QAM, PRACH format 2, subframe config 0, 1588v2 sync, and jumbo frames. Starting with this version, we will also be changing the CloudCore PLMN to 314030.
Nova 243 (2*10W eNB | BRU3501,3510,3511)
Nova 233 (2*1W eNB | mBS1100,1105,11002)
Nova 227 (2*250mW eNB | pBS2120,11004)
NOTICE: BEFORE UPGRADING THE ENB, you will want to check if any Baicells Cat6 (Atom OD06) CPEs are connected to the eNB. For every CAT6 CPE which is connected to the eNB, you will want to verify that roaming is set to enabled. If roaming is set to disabled on any CAT6 CPE, it will prevent them from attaching to the eNB after the upgrade if the SIM card used does not begin with “314030”. These CPEs also use the following model names: EG7010CM11, EG7010AM11, or EG2013BM11. You can find the model names listed in the OMC under CPE > Monitor. From the CPE webgui, you can find the roaming setting on the Settings > LTE > Internet Settings page.
NOTICE: BEFORE UPGRADING THE ENB, please check the firmware version, eNBs with “BaiStation_V100R001C00B100” or earlier versions will need to upgrade to “BaiStation_V100R001C00B110” prior upgrading to RTS 3.4.8
