on multiple sources. Note that the Local Network Autodiscovery causes
the Device List to be reset. Since there are additional features available
in the main Configuration Utility window, such as the Filter Device List
feature, it may be more convenient to prepare the required list of
devices in the main Configuration Utility window. Then, simply open the
Firmware Upgrade utility and the list is automatically loaded.

To upgrade unit software:


1. Select the units to be upgraded from the Device List on the left
side the window. Use the standard Windows Shift and Ctrl key
commands to select multiple units.
2. You can define the path to the required upgrade file in the
applicable selection boxes, or click the button on the right side of
each of the selection fields to open the Select firmware filename
window. There are separate selection fields for GU files, AU files,
SU files, and SU with voice support files. The available fields
correspond to the devices selected from the Device List. For
example, if the devices selected do not include any AUs, the
relevant AU selection fields are disabled. In addition, there are
separate fields for the two available types of flash memory, which
are Flash Type F and Flash Type S.
3. Enter the applicable remote filename password for the file to be
loaded. The password is <read/write community string>.<file
extension>. For Flash Type F, the file extension is.dwn and for
Flash Type S, the file extension is.fmr. The default read/write
community string is private.

4. Click to initiate the firmware upgrade. A log of the


upgrade process is displayed after the operation.

5. Click to modify the settings of the TFTP session used in


the upgrade download, as follows:
♦ Packet timeout: Defines the time, in seconds, for which the
upgrade process waits for an acknowledgement message. The
range is 1 to 30 seconds and the default is 3 seconds.
♦ Packet Retries: Defines the maximum number of retries,
which is the number of times a packet is retransmitted when
an acknowledgement is not received within the defined timeout
period. The range is 1 to 5 and the default is 3 retries.
♦ Session Retries: Defines the number of times the TFTP
session is retried before determining that the upgrade
procedure has failed. The range is 1 to 5 and the default is 3
retries.
♦ Number of Parallel Sessions: Defines the maximum number
of TFTP sessions that can be conducted simultaneously. The
range is 1 to 10 and the default is 10. In the event of too many
failures in the upgrade process it is advised that you reduce
the value of this parameter.
♦ Save to External Log: Defines whether the results of the
upgrade process are saved to a Log File. The default is Yes.

between AUs. This feature enables fast distribution of a new
location for all clients behind the SU.
When enabled, the SU sends multicast SNAP messages via the
wireless link each time it associates with an AU, except for the first
association after reset. The SU sends one SNAP message for each
client learned on its Ethernet port, based on its bridging table. In
the SNAP message the client’s MAC address is used as the source
address. The AU that receives this SNAP message learns the new
location of the clients and forwards the SNAP to other AUs and
Layer-2 networking equipment via its Ethernet port. This facilitates
uninterrupted connectivity and the correct routing of transmissions
to these clients.

Figure 3-34: AU Alarms Site Survey Tab


BreezeCONFIG ACCESS User’s Guide
3-76

The AU Alarms tab is comprised of the following components:


♦ AU Alarms Option: From the dropdown list, select whether to
Enable or Disable the AU alarms feature.
♦ Learning Period (min): Click the up and down arrows to select the
amount of time dedicated to accumulating information without
generating alarms (except for the No association alarm).
♦ Tests Cycle (min): Click the up and down arrows to define the time
between two consecutive transmissions of a polling message and for
calculating the current averages for the various traffic statistics.
♦ Responding SUs
Current Number: The number of SUs that responded to the
last polling message sent by the selected AU.
Average Number: The average number of SUs that have
responded to polling messages sent by the selected AU.
Min Average Number: Click the up and down arrows to define
the minimum average number of SUs required for association
tests.
♦ Traffic Statistics Table: The table displays the following
information for each alarm entry:
Current Rate: The current rate for each alarm entry is
calculated differently, as follows:
♦ RTX: Defined as Nr/(Nt+ Nr), where Nr = Number of
retransmissions during the last test cycle period.
Nt = Number of successfully transmitted unicast frames
during the last test cycle.
The minimum value of Nt+ Nr for a meaningful test is 50
(otherwise the result is NA).
♦ Dropped Frames: Defined as Nd/Nt, where Nd is the number
of dropped frames during the last test cycle period.
Dropped frames are frames that are dropped because they
are retransmitted to the extent of the maximum allowed
number of retransmissions without being acknowledged.
The minimum value of Nt for a meaningful test is 50
(otherwise the result is NA).
♦ CRC Errors: Defined as Ncrc/(Nrx+Ncrc), whereNcrc = Number
of frames received with a CRC error during the last test
cycle period. Nrx = Number of successfully received frames
during the last test cycle period.
The minimum value of Nrx+Ncrc for a meaningful test is 50
(otherwise the result is NA).
Working with Unit Configurations
3-77

♦ Duplicated Frames: Defined as Ndup/Nrx, where Ndup is the


number of dropped frames during the last test cycle period.
The minimum value of Nrx for a meaningful test is 50
(otherwise the result is NA).
Average Rate: The average rate of the traffic statistics is
calculated using the formula Ra(t)=[Rc*1 +Ra(t-1)*5]/6, where
Rc = Current Rate
Ra(t) = The new value of the Average Rate for the applicable
rate.
Ra(t-1) = The previous Average Rate of the applicable rate.
For the first test cycle after reset (or after enabling the AU
Alarms Option), Ra= Rc.
Minimum Delta: The minimum difference between the
Current Rate and the previous Average Rate that causes a
minor severity alarm to be activated for the relevant statistics
type. Another prerequisite for activating the alarm is that the
relevant Current Rate exceeds the applicable Minor Alarm
Threshold.
Minor Threshold: The threshold that causes a minor severity
alarm to be activated for the relevant traffic statistics type.
Another prerequisite for activating the alarm is that the
difference between the applicable Current Rate and the
previous Average Rate exceeds the Minor Alarm Minimum
Delta.
Major Threshold: The threshold that causes a major severity
alarm to be activated for the relevant statistics type.
♦ AU Rx Power Average Delta (dBm): The average difference for all
responding SUs between the last and second last RSSI at the AU.
The average is calculated based on only those SUs that responded
to both of the last two polling message.
♦ SU Rx Power Average Delta (dBm): The average difference for all
SUs between the last and second last RSSI at the SU. The average
is calculated only for SUs that responded to both of the last two
polling message.
♦ AU Rx Power Decrease Threshold (dBm): Click the up and down
arrows to define the minimum inverse (negative) value of the AU Rx
Power Average Delta that triggers an alarm. The alarm is
generated only if the number of responding SUs used in calculating
the AU Rx Power Average Delta (responded to both of the last two
polling messages) is at least 5.
BreezeCONFIG ACCESS User’s Guide
3-78

♦ SU Rx Power Decrease Threshold (dBm): Click the up and down


arrows to define the minimum inverse (negative) value of the SU Rx
Power Average Delta that triggers an alarm. The alarm is
generated only if the number of SUs used in calculating the SU Rx
Power Average Delta (responded to both of the last two polling
messages) is at least 5.
♦ Alarms Status Table: Displays all alarms currently active on the
selected unit and its severity.
♦ Click Clear Alarms to delete the current entries from the Alarms
Status Table.

NOTE:
The Alarms Status table is not refreshed automatically upon receipt of a new alarm. The
date and time of the last refresh is displayed next to the table.
