Firmware Version 1.5.0
April 17, 2018
Firmware images are product and mode specific. Confirm firmware image matches the product before upgrading. Upgrade the far side first, regardless of AP or Station setting.
Supported Upgrade Paths
B5/B5c can be upgraded from any release before 1.5.0 to 1.5.0.
- Enabled licensed mode operation for Barbados.
- Reduce Vietnam EIRP to 28 dBm.
- Update Canada’s newly allocated 100 MHz of unlicensed spectrum (5150-5250 MHz).
- Algeria 5 GHz Regulations update to include spectrum from 5250-5350 and 5470-5670.
- Updated channel plan and EIRP for Indonesia.
- Updated UK regulations as per OFCOM documentation to remove notch between 5725 to 5850 MHz.
- Fixed KRACK vulnerability (i.e., WPA-2 vulnerability related to key replay).
- Feature gives the ability to disable/enable firewall through UI. The firewall rules protect the device from DoS attacks.
- Improved SNMP stability and responsiveness.
- Corrected value of SNMP variable for antenna gain mimosaAntennaGain on B5/B5c running in Station mode.
- Fixed an issue with NTP information missing while doing snmpwalk on mimosaService MIB.
- Updated security vulnerability patches for DNS and DHCP servers running on device.
- Change security protocol for devices connecting to Mimosa Cloud from SSLv3 to TLSv1.2.
- Stability improvements for crashes and platform performance.
- Cloud connectivity improvements.
- Implemented downshift mechanism for B5-Lite to 100Base-T from 1000Base-T for scenarios where any two pairs out of four pairs of Ethernet cable may have gone bad. (B5L only)
- Improved accuracy of short link distances for B5-Lite.
Radio (PHY and MAC)
- Channel changes due to radar hit on the station trigger are now logged.
- Improved the responsiveness of aiming mode.
- Fixed an issue where Channel/Power changes on AP caused “Error unable to load data" on device UI.
- Fix a condition where combined spectrum looks incorrect.
- Fixed an issue on a B5/B5c that would, on some occasions, add an exclusion for channels 5600-5650. If 6. this is the selected channel, then a different DFS would be selected. This issue may still occur in the 7. new release, but once the exclusion has been removed, the exclusion will not re-appear.
If both the backhaul radios are attached to Cisco 3550 or 3750 switches and the Dynamic Trunking Protocol on the switches is turned on, connectivity to device’s management IP may fail. The workaround is to turn off the Dynamic Trunking Protocol on the trunk port.
