Release Notes for Cisco SPA232D Multi-Line DECT ATA and Cisco SPA302D Multi-Line DECT Handset Firmware Version 1.3.6
First Published: May 5, 2015
Revised: July 15, 2015
These Release Notes provide information about Cisco SPA232D Multi-Line DECT ATA and Cisco SPA302D Multi-Line DECT Handset firmware version 1.3.6.
As with any firmware release, read these release notes before you upgrade the firmware. Cisco also recommends that you back up the configuration before you perform any firmware upgrade.
Changes in Firmware Version 1.3.6
These feature enhancements are added in Firmware Version 1.3.6:
For the SPA302D handset, count the number of missed calls correctly.
When multiple handsets are using the same DECT line and an incoming call occurs, one handset receives the call, and the missed-call count of the other handset does not increase.
When the call to a handset is forwarded, the first ringback tone is stopped, and only one ringback tone is heard.
A Delete softkey is added to the SPA302D handset.
The user can delete the wrong input digits when making an outgoing call.
For the SPA302D handset, add local DTMF playback.
For the SPA232D, support is added for VeriSign root certificates.
If a device is upgraded to SW 1.3.3 or later, the provisioning server requests a server certification signed by the Cisco 2K Small Business CA or can use the certificate signed by 1K CA.
Note The 2K server certificate is not compatible with old firmware (before 1.3.3.) The 1K server certificate is compatible with all firmwares, before and after 1.3.3.
Devices with serial number CCQ18230001 (and newer) are built-in with 2K Client Certificate.
For a device with 2K Client Certification, the provisioning server should update the combined CA if client certification is requested.
Note The new combined CA is compatible with both 1K and 2K Client Certification.
Hardware and Firmware Compatibility
The following matrix describes the hardware and firmware compatibility.
(3 types of devices)
1.3.2 or earlier
(128MB Flash + New SLIC)
(128MB Flash + Old SLIC)
CCQ17100G3L to CCQ1906001U
(32MB Flash + Old SLIC)
Note Do not upgrade any device to an unsupported firmware version as detailed in the Hardware and Firmware Compatibility Matrix table.
Note New SLIC devices have a label that reads S/W: Must use 1.3.5(004p) or later.
Missed call on SPA302D when 2 or more handsets are using the same line.
SPA232D & SPA302D Local & Remote Ringback
SPA302D- Unable to delete number on LCD during transfer/conference
SPA302D has missing local DTMF playback
Due to CSCug32425, when upgrading the SPA232D loaded with v1.3.1 (or a previous firmware version), it is required to upgrade the SPA232D v1.3.2 firmware twice if provisioning the device via the Upgrade Rule to correctly upgrade to the corresponding embedded SPA302D handset software. A special version of SPA232D firmware has been created to be used to perform the first upgrade while the second upgrade can use SPA232D_SPA302D_1.3.2_014_FW.bin which then installs the SPA302D handset software correctly.
This is not an issue while upgrading the SPA232D firmware via the web-based configuration utility, as the SPA232D needs to be upgraded only once.
SPA232D: While continuously running TR69, the ATA displays ‘Connection Refused’ (between the ATA and the server.)
SPA232D: PSTN Caller ID is incorrect with specific configuration.
SPA302D: When a first call is on hold, the second call cannot be answered while the other handset is upgrading.
SPA302D: The CWT tone continues to play on the second incoming call even after the first call ends.
SPA302D: The Dial Plan syntax (without the exclamation mark) does not work on the HS, but works on FXS port.
SPA232D: Media Loopback is not supported.
SPA302D: When both DND and CFWD Busy are enabled then CFWD does not take effect.
SPA232D: The phone sends random DTMF when the "Conference Tone" is changed.
SPA302D: Outgoing line from the HS cannot be emptied.
SPA232D: Download failure of auto-recovery file blocks manual recovery.
SPA232D: Setting IP Dialing format for CFWD target does not work.
SPA302D: ‘Reply 182 on Call Waiting’ does not work on DECT line (works in FXS port.)
SPA232D: "Conference Bridge Ports" does not work.
SPA302D: Cannot dial out when the dialed number is 32 characters.
SPA302D: Hold Tone on the HS is missing during a long call if the call is put on hold by the called party.
SPA302D: Conference cannot be set up using Conference Bridge if the calls are swapped.
SPA232D: While one handset is upgrading, "Call Forwarding" cannot be accessed.
SPA302D: The HS does not display the underline in the name of an incoming call.
SPA232D: Reminder Ring does not play immediately after an end of a PSTN call.
SPA232D: The CFWD last caller setting on PSTN User tab in the web GUI does not take effect.
SPA232D: The max duration setting for PSTN/VoIP Call does not take effect in the handset.
SPA232D: While a PSTN line is in use, Caller ID is not displayed on FXS port during an incoming call.
Step 2 Launch a web browser, and enter the LAN IP addresses of the ATA.
Step 3 Log in to the Configuration Utility. (On first use, enter admin as the username and the password. After logging in, you should configure a unique password that is hard to guess.)
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.
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.
Upgrade the Cisco SPA302D
Perform this procedure after you upgrade the Cisco SPA232D and are waiting for the ATA to reboot.
Note To verify the upgrade, go to the Administration > Firmware Upgrade page, and confirm that the firmware version number is correct.
Step 1 On the handset, press the center Select button, scroll to Settings, and press the Select button again.
Step 2 In the Settings menu, choose Update Software, and then press the Select button.
Step 3 At the Check for software update prompt, press Confirm.
Step 4 Within a moment, the handset displays the current version of software on the handset and the latest software version available from the Cisco SPA232D. Press the Select softkey.
Step 5 Place the handset in the charging cradle.
Do not remove the handset from the charging cradle during the upgrade. Do not power off the handset, charging cradle, or base station, or otherwise interrupt the upgrade process.
The handset erases the flash memory, downloads the new software, and verifies the upgrade data. After the upgrade, a message appears indicating the status of the upgrade (for example, if the upgrade succeeded).
Step 6 After the success message appears, press Reset to reboot the handset.
If the upgrade fails, press Reset to reboot the handset. Check the status lights on the Cisco SPA232D to make sure that it is powered on and functioning. Then repeat the upgrade steps.
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.
