  • Feature to save debug messages in the Simulator has been added.

GPRS Upgrade & Deployment Server 1.10 released

The GPRS Upgrade & Deployment Server (UDS) offers sophisticated features for Upgrade & Deployment of a number of RTCU units in operation. The UDS can be configured by the user to ensure that the specified units are running the correct firmware and/or application. The UDS will automatically upgrade the units as requested and this task will even take place during FULL operation of the units. Any interruption in an upgrade attempt will be automatically handled and resumed to avoid any waste of expensive bandwidth.

The following features has been added in version 1.10:

  • It is now possible to only include application or firmware in profiles.
  • When an application or firmware file is changed the path to the old file is used as start location unless a default path is selected.
  • It is now possible to Import and Export units (From/to comma delimited file).
  • It is now possible to deactivate units for more flexible management.
  • Log size has been limited to 500.000 entries and Log rendering has been improved to reduce the memory consumption.
  • The menu item "Force upgrade" has been renamed to "Initiate upgrade".
  • Status messages have been expanded to include more information.
  • It is now possible to filter the Unit info window to only show units that are using a specific profile.
  • The UDS only updates a unit after a bootup message is received.
  • Yellow and green dots has been added to the Unit information window.

The GPRS Upgrade & Deployment Server 1.10 was released on December 21, 2005 and can be downloaded from www.rtcu.dk
