Device software upgrades are done by clicking Upgrade from the navigation pane. The software banks and respective versions are indicated. 

Each RN and BN supports up to three different versions of software:

  1. Factory: Software version loaded if the device is reset to factory defaults

  2. System 1: Bank used to house software version

  3. System 2: Redundant bank used to house software version


Either System 1 or System 2 can be the active bank.

The active bank is the software version the device is currently using as noted by *currently active. The intent of having multiple banks is to be able to use one bank for operation while newer software versions are loaded on the other banks for use at a later time.

To upgrade software, click Choose File and browse to the Tarana-supplied software file. Click Confirm Upgrade. Upgrades are performed at the next system reboot. A reboot will happen automatically and immediately upon clicking Confirm Upgrade.

Note: Rebooting a BN is service affecting for all associated RNs.
