Browan Pico Next

Note about LED behavior

The behavior of the LEDs is as follows:

  • Power LED gets on (none blinking) as soon as LRR is started.

  • Network LED reflects the primary interface status (the interface is functional, ping works).

  • Service/Wireless LED reflects the secondary interface (same behavior).

New features

  • Possibility to customize the SUPPORT password from SUPLOG (RDTP-15143): For enhanced security, the default SUPPORT password may be changed by the user from SUPLOG console, under Identifiers > Set Actility support tool password.

Other improvements

  • PT-2337: PT-2615: GRAL-211: thanks to util_spectral_scan update, RF spectral scan is now supported for all Pico Next models including L0007 series.

Bug fixes

  • PT-2337: PT-2615: GRAL-211: util_spectral_scan updated for all gempiconext

  • PT-2622: GRAL-216: wrong GPS time when not GPSD

  • PT-2495: fix mss on ipsec to handle MTU 1358

  • PT-2559: Better interface availability detection in failover

  • PT-2542: "Failed to reboot" displayed on ThingPark GUI when rebooting base station

  • PT-2592: GRAL-198: Failed to get FPGA version

  • PT-2597: GRAL-203: EC25: search for RSSI when 3G mode + calloc instead of malloc

Known issues

  • PT-2628: Restoration failed to restore the security mode.

  • PT-2630: LRR upgrade: checkpki restarted with incorrect security mode after upgrade.

Version 2.8.40

Browan Pico Next (L0006 series)311.0.16, 1.1.535.1

New features

  • Support TLS as a new communication security protocol (RDTP-17091, RDTP-5248): TLS (Transport Layer Security) has been added along with IPSec (Internet Protocol Security). By default, TLS is used to encrypt every message going from the LRR to the ThingPark platform. IPSec can still be used and configured using the Suplog. To learn more, see Activating a secure connection via IPSec or TLS.

  • Reporting of cellular statistics (RDTP-2420): showing the 3G/4G operator, RSSI, SINR and other RF stats related to the cellular backhaul interface.

  • Enhanced filtering of non-LoRaWAN uplink packets (RDTP-17897): Optimized LRR filtering of uplink packets to discard non-LoRaWAN frames.

  • Allow configuring ICMP destinations in SUPLOG (RDTP-17415): Make it possible to customize the ICMP destinations in SUPLOG to comply with specific deployment use cases where ICMP protocol is not authorized on ThingPark's server side.

  • Introduction of embedded virtual device probe: This feature provides insight into the RF quality of the network using an emulated device in the LRR to send messages over the LRR antenna, and then analyze the quality of the received uplink packet by other surrounding LRRs.

  • Introduction of new managers: Centralmgr is now centralizing all information from the other managers: gwmgr, failovermgr, restoremgr, rollbackmgr, lrrmgr, pkimgr.

Other improvements

  • IPsec configuration improvements

  • Reboot as an environment variable
