For clients who are using the COR or ARC integrated CradlePoint Verizon LTE routers that whose part number ends in –LE, AND have enabled GPS functionality, a critical radio firmware update should be applied (188.8.131.52). Note, -LPE part number do not require this update. Only –LE products require this update.
What is it?
Cradlepoint has posted new firmware for LE-VZ embedded/integrated modems that addresses potential modem memory corruption. Please note that modem firmware is separate from router firmware.
Are my devices affected?
If you are running a router with an LE-VZ modem, and GPS functionality is enabled, please follow the mitigation steps below. Note – default GPS setting is “not enabled” (except PWD version)
List of LE-VZ products that could be affected:
- Cradlepoint AER2100LE-VZF (MC300LE-VZ)
- Cradlepoint MBR1400LE-VZ
- Cradlepoint CBA750B-LE-VZ (MC200LE-VZ)
- Cradlepoint IBR600LE-VZ,Cradlepoint IBR650LE-VZ
- Cradlepoint IBR600LE-VZ-PWD (GPS is enabled as default setting)
- LE-VZ modems where GPS is not enabled
- Products with any other modem (including all products with “LPE” modems)
Mitigation Steps: what actions do I take?
If you have an LE-VZ modem with GPS enabled, you must upgrade the modem firmware to version 184.108.40.206
Cradlepoint recommends all users of LE-VZ modems utilize this upgrade.
