From here you may download the latest firmware versions for all ourproducts or read the release notes. If you know the procedure scrolldown or click on one of the links below to take you to the right place. Otherwise read on about file types and upgrade procedures.
There are two types of files that you may download into your computer to upgrade the firmware in the Afar devices. The two file types have extension .BZ or .BZE and .DW or .DWE. The file you need depends on the method you intend to use to upgrade the unit firmware.
All firmware files have a three letter name identifying the application, followed by two digits of major revision number and two digits of minor revision number. For example the pmp03_26.bz file is a compressed binary file of version 3.26 of the firmware for the AR-24027 running in Point-to-Multipoint mode.
Firmware Update Methods
You can establish a command session with the Afar devices on three different interfaces. Once the command session is open you can then download new firmware, configure device parameters, or monitor the operation of the device. Each of the three interfaces has their own advantages:
This program runs on a Windows PC or Linux platform. For a PC, after you download and unzip the file, run the program WinPCap.exe (included in the package) which installs a DLL necessary to run the Econsole program.
Note that as of July 2011, we have released a version of ECON with an expanded command set. Check out the manual which is included in the release kit.
