Important notice: if the current version (before updating) is older than version 1.04:
If a password is set for accessing the html pages, you MUST reset it to a blank value (refer to page Maintenance/Login data), BEFORE performing this firmware update. You can set a password again once the update is completed.
After the update, you may meet display issues on the html pages of the product. This will be solved by clearing the cache of the html browser.
The unit should be connected on the same LAN as a computer, from which you will use a web browser in order to perform the firmware upload to the codec.
Download the update file (see link below).
Open the html page of the unit, go to the “Maintenance” tab, ” System Update”.
From this page, click “Browse…”, search and select the update file.
Click the “Update” button. The process starts.
Wait for the end of the process. The displayed text is then “Rebooting” on the web page.
At this stage the unit normally reboots by itself. If this does not take place automatically, and the unit stays in this state, switch it off, and then back on.
In some cases the following reboot phase may last longer than usual.
Check on the web interface that the new version has been installed successfully.
The update does not clear the settings done before the update process. However, AETA cannot guarantee in all situations that the codec will operate accurately with these settings unchanged.
In doubt, we thus recommend to bring the unit back to its “factory” default settings.
As an alternative to “Double streaming” which secures an AoIP/SIP link with two redundant paths, support of a “Bonding” scheme that distributes the AoIP stream over two lower bit rate channels. More information in this application note.
Support of the AARC protocol for remote controlling the µScoop.
The AoIP quality statistics now remain displayed on the “Connections” html page even after the termination of a link.
These statistics are available separately for each of the streams involved in a link using “Double streaming” or “Bonding”.
Regression introduced in version 1.10 : GPO2 does not follow the received “Info 2” if GPO1 is not assigned the “Info 1” state.
Ability to register simultaneously on two SIP servers so that the unit can accept incoming AoIP calls indifferently from either server. When using this feature, one of the servers is selected as default to make outgoing calls.
Ability to filter incoming AoIP calls and accept only incoming calls originated from the configured SIP server(s).
New “Advanced Settings” in the “Coding” page of the web interface: ability to hold an AoIP audio connection even without receiving packets, ability to configure a 6 dB attenuation for the G711 decoder.
New “Redial/Release” function to control the state of an audio connection from a single GPI.
Embedded web interface: in case the network for remote access is supported by a removable device (e.g. Ethernet USB adapter) and it becomes unavailable (device unplugged), an erroneous “Auto” was displayed.
Edition : 29/05/2018
Loss of the default IP route of the Ethernet interface whenever loading a Preset that involves static IP addressing for this interface, causing a SIP registration failure
Edition : 16/04/2018
New features :
Added support for the AETA “Double Streaming” system: ability to secure an audio over IP link by establishing two AoIP connections containing the same audio stream via two separate routes.
Added support for AAC-LC and HE-AAC dual mono coding at 48 kHz (AoIP calls).
Edition : 16/02/2018
Fixed issues :
Regression introduced in version 1.06 : failure of the domain name resolution in some network access configurations (public DNS server address). As a consequence, malfunction when a domain name is used for the SIP or the STUN server.
Edition : 15/01/2018
“Remote Assistance/Access” service: ability to select the network interface that will be used for remote access (“Maintenance/Remote Access” html page). The “Auto” choice is still available, in which the interface is always the same as the one used for audio transmission.
Fixed issues :
After a power cycle, failure to “redial” by using a contact input (GPI).
Edition : 13/11/2017
New features :
Added support for the “Remote Assistance/Access” service. The settings for this service are accessible on the “Maintenance” page of the html interface, and its current state is visible on the “Status” page.
Edition : 13/09/2017
Important notice: if a password is set for accessing the html pages, you MUST reset it to a blank value (refer to page Maintenance/Login data), BEFORE performing this firmware update.
Once the update is completed, you can later set a password again.
Web pages security improvements :
Implementation of HTTPS for the embedded server.
Enhanced protection against attacks.
Implemented a technique to prevent from Cross-Site Request Forgery attacks.
When importing a configuration file, the login password is not affected (previously, the password possibly included in the configuration file was also imported).
Opus coding is upgraded to version 1.2.1.
Edition : 09/04/2017
Detailed statistics of the AoIP transmission displayed on the “Connections” page of the html interface.
Improved handling of SIP call redirection.
Edition : 09/11/2016
Fixed issues :
GPI not operative when configured for redialling or releasing the link: fixed
Edition : 29/08/2016
Fixed issues :
Default route deleted from the routing table after editing the Ethernet parameters, leading to loss of control from a remote network: fixed.
Edition : 04/08/2016
All the LEDs flash briefly during startup.
The “Ready” and “Dec” LEDs blink red during the firmware update process (update from version 1.02).
