User Module FOTA Released!


Written by Petr Hanuš on Tuesday 13 February 2018 in the category Default with the tags .

  • The Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) user module is an additional feature of Advantech routers. This module will assure the correct firmware for cellular module is chosen, downloaded and installed into the router automatically. Only the firmware of the cellular module is updated (not the firmware of the router).

    The user module is easy to use – it can be activated with just one checkbox. The router must be connected to the Internet in order to use FOTA updates. The module checks for the new cellular module firmware every 24 hours. It is also possible to check ...

    Patch for R-SeeNet – Alphanumeric SN


    Written by Petr Hanuš on Thursday 8 February 2018 in the category Default with the tags .

  • Be the first to comment
  • Since January 2018, we have been using alphanumeric form of product serial numbers. An example of such number could be:

    ACZ1100123456787

    There are some ideas hidden behind the new serial number scheme but this post is about R-SeeNet.

    For those unfamiliar with R-SeeNet, it is a legacy Router monitoring tool that is still being supported and maintained.

    If you are using this tool, you need to update it via patch linked below to get reasonable level of support for the new serial numbers. Without this patch, the new serial numbers are not being displayed ...

  • As you know, Conel OS 6.1.5 was released before Christmas with a few usual exceptions (SmartFlex SR305, SmartStart SL302, SPECTRE v2). Now, this firmware is also released for SmartFlex SR305 and SmartStart SL302 routers designed for the North American market.

    Pointing out a few notable changes:

    • Fixes for multiple Wifi vulnerabilies (KRACK and other CVEs).
    • All sensitive information in the text dialogs like passwords and pre-shared keys is now not visible in the UI so nobody looking over the shoulder is able to spot passwords.
    • IPSEC fixes - improved stability plus compatibility with Checkpoint VPN ...

    Recent CPU vulnerabilities (Meltdown, Spectre)


    Written by Jan Otte on Thursday 11 January 2018 in the category Default with the tags , .

  • Be the first to comment
  • Early this year, a few vulnerabilities impacting inside-CPU code were announced.

    While there is not a full disclosure available to us at present time, we can tell a few things now.

    First, not all of the vulnerabilities are limited to x86 architecture. The ARM architecture is impacted as well.

    While keeping this brief and understandable, the nature of announced vulnerabilities (CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715, CVE-2017-5754) lies in the problems connected with a few techniques used inside of the CPU.

    The known impact is information leak via side effects of speculative execution. "Speculative execution" is nothing extraordinary. ...

    User Modules on EP

  • User Modules are now available on Engineering Portal.

    As you probably know, User Modules are kind of a unique way how the functionality of router devices running Conel OS can be extended.

    Well, it is not that unique that you can extend functionality of your device. But it is not common that you have a range of UM ready. It is also not that common that you have a multi-language SDK with examples available so that you can create your own User Modules. Last but not the least, our services always included ...

    • Many of the proven v2 generation ranging over different cellular technologies (2G to LTE), including 2-cellular ...
