As with any firmware release, read these release notes before upgrading the firmware. Cisco also recommends backing up the configuration before any firmware upgrade.
Changes in Firmware Version 1.3.5(XU) from 1.3.2(XU)
Improvement in reboot time for SPA122, to increase in RC provisioning speed.
User is able to add configurable prefix to syslog. For example: $PN, $MA, etc.
Support SIP Notify event. When the parameter <Provisioning Enable> is set to “no”, SPA can resync to turn on provisioning remotely. Note: This feature applies only to RC unit.
Support logs over TLS.
Support SSL email.
Enhancement to include device MAC address in syslog messages.
Report low memory availability via syslog, and show memory usage on the web page.
Support firmware upgrade using HTTP 302 redirection.
Caller ID can be updated while creating a conference.
Support Call Hold reminder when the caller makes the second call while the first call is on hold.
Open Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) open source library used in the ATA is upgraded to 1.0.1g in order to support TLS 1.2.
LED pattern is added specifically for RC status in SPA122-RC to allow users to view and monitor the RC process.
The SIP parameter “Hook Flash MIME Type” is set to application/broadsoft, so that the Metaswitch server recognizes the flashhook event.
Add a new parameter “Feature Key Sync” for FXS. The default value is no. This parameter enables synchronization of DND and CFWD (forward all, forward busy, and forward no answer) settings between ATA and the proxy server. Any change in the fields on the ATA is notified to the proxy and vice versa.
Support “Conference Bridge URL”. The default setting is blank. After setting it to a valid URL, the user can establish a 3-way conference by hookflash of FXS port. For n>3, user can add participants by making new calls.

Note Do not upgrade any device to an unsupported firmware version as detailed in the Hardware and Firmware Compatibility Matrix table.
Note 1.3.2p is identical to 1.3.2 and additionally supports 128MB flash and new SLIC. 1.3.2n is based on 1.3.2; both have the same feature set, except that 1.3.2n supports 128MB flash while 1.3.2 does not. 1.3.5p is based on 1.3.5; both have the same feature set, except that 1.3.5p supports new SLIC while 1.3.5 does not. 1.3.5p(XU), 1.3.5(XU), 1.3.2(XU): SRTP functionality has been removed, and it cannot be configured or provisioned in firmware versions that are designated with XU in the filename.
Note New devices have a label that reads S/W: Must use 1.3.5(004p) or later.
Resync error retry delay is applicable even after profile rule is modified.
Reset button factory reset is not always effective.
Web Access Admin Access is disabled from web-GUI but not from config.
DNS retry optimization for RC provisioning.
The default value of LLDP is different from the configuration generated by the SPC tool.
SPA112: Admin access not available in the configuration file generated by the SPC tool.
SRP references in the administration guide changed to SPA100.
Blind Transfer: When a complete number is entered, the ATA sends a SIP INVITE message with the Refer-To target equals to *98 target_number.
SPA122 fails to load the first profile rule when both the profile rules are changed.
SPA112: IVR option 170 does not work properly.
SPA112: PSTN Caller ID is not displayed on the phone connected to SPA112/SPA122.
IVR Menu Options 1911 and 1921 are not valid anymore.
SPA122-RC: Power LED Indicator on RC devices to check the status of RC provisioning process.
SPA122-RC: DNS retry missed the first value in the Resync Error Retry Delay.
Monitor and document the SPA122-RC Provisioning Time Optimization. (Reduce the RC provisioning time by at least 2 minutes. NOTE: The complete RC device provisioning time should be between 5 - 7 minutes.)
Obsolete Link for Music Coupler needs to be updated.
SPA1xx&SPA232D: Some parameters for supplementary Service do not work.
SPA1xx: version-style conditional expression broken on XU image.
T38 fax fails with model “Cannon MX850,” but successful with other models like Brother FAX 8360P, Xerox WorkCentre Pro 575, Panasonic UF-9000, and HP Officejet 7110.
The volume is 2dbm lower than the SPA2102 with default settings.
FQDN is required in the profile rule after setting Restricted Access Domains.
The SPA100/200 series does not support RFC2543 Call Hold. (NOTE: Re-INVITE message always has the device ip address in its SDP and not 0.0.0.0.)

Note 1: Firmware Downgrade Limitation
The devices with the following PID and TAN (or later TAN number) cannot be downgraded to a version older than 1.3.3.
Note 2: 2K Certificate
If the device is upgraded to 1.3.3 or later (no hardware related), the server could request a server certification signed by the “Cisco 2k Small Business CA” or keep using certificate signed by 1k CA. Be careful, it is optional because the new singed 2k server certificate is not compatible with old firmware (before 1.3.3). While the server certificates signed by 1k CA are working for all firmware, before and after 1.3.3.
SPA112&122&232D with SN CCQ18230001 and after have a built-in 2k Client Certificate. Then server must update the new Combined CA if the client certification is required. The new Combined CA is compatible with the old 1k & 2k certificate, that means it works for all the devices.
Upgrade the Firmware
Follow these instructions to upgrade the phone adapter.
Step 2 Launch a web browser, and enter the LAN IP addresses of the phone adapter.
Step 3 Log in to the Configuration Utility.
Step 4 Click Administration in the menu bar, and then click Firmware Upgrade in the navigation tree.
Step 5 Click Browse and select the location of the upgrade file that you downloaded.
Step 6 Click the Upgrade button to upgrade the firmware.
Note Upgrading the firmware may take several minutes. Until the process is complete, DO NOT turn off the power, press the hardware reset button, or click the Back button in your current browser.
Behavior During Times of Network Congestion
Anything that degrades network performance can affect voice and video quality, and in some cases, can cause a call to drop. Sources of network degradation can include, but are not limited to, the following activities:
Administrative tasks, such as an internal port scan or security scan
Attacks that occur on your network, such as a Denial of Service attack
To reduce or eliminate any adverse effects to the devices, schedule administrative network tasks during a time when the devices are not being used or exclude the devices from testing.
