Smart Upgrade Process

Smart Upgrade Process

To implement smart upgrade, connect devices to the HOUP through the Internet, as shown in Figure 16-1. A smart upgrade-enabled AR router periodically sends its own information, including the device model, ESN, current system software version, and current patch, to the HOUP. The HOUP returns the latest version information, including the recommended system software version, patch, patch type, and download path, to the router based on the maintenance policy. You can determine whether to upgrade the router immediately or at a scheduled time based on the returned information. The router then automatically downloads the software package and performs an upgrade accordingly. After the upgrade is completed, the router reports the upgrade result to the HOUP.

Smart Upgrade Procedure

Figure 16-2 shows the process in which a smart upgrade-enabled router exchanges with the HOUP.

The procedure is as follows:
  1. The router reports its status information to the HOUP to request for the latest version information 10 minutes after the smart upgrade function is enabled.

  2. After obtaining the status information, the HOUP returns the latest version information, including the latest system software version and patch information to the router based on a specified policy.

  3. After the router obtains the latest version information, a user determines whether to upgrade the router according to the actual situation.

  4. If the router needs to be upgraded, the user can further select the immediate or scheduled upgrade policy.

  5. The router performs a smart upgrade and requests for the latest system file from the HOUP based on the upgrade policy selected by the user.

  6. The HOUP responds to the download request of the router and transfers the system file to the router.

  7. After obtaining the system file, the router automatically configures it as the file for next startup and restarts.

    The router clears the original upgrade configuration in this procedure. During a restart, the router automatically saves and backs up configurations to the file named or vrpcfg_auto_backup.cfg. Save the current configuration and export the configuration file in advance.

  8. After the upgrade is completed, the router automatically reports the upgrade result to the HOUP. If the upgrade fails, the HOUP notifies maintenance engineers of the failure.
