PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 6
Introduction

This document provides information for the Cambium Networks PMP 320 product, software
release e2.3.
To ensure that all of the features of the PMP AP and CSM are available upon deployment,
be sure to upgrade the module software to the latest release available at:
http://www.cambiumnetworks.com/support/pmp/software/

The following procedure should be executed prior to upgrading to e2.3 to ensure that
QoS and service flow information may be reinstated in case of a downgrade from e2.3 to
e2.2.2.
Before upgrading from e2.2.2 to e2.3, save a configuration restore point on the APs
Administration > Configuration Control GUI page. If it is required that the network is
reverted back to a pre-2.3 release, the configuration control point may be restored, and
all QoS and service flow configuration will be restored. For pre-e2.3 software releases
only, if all configuration restore points are already populated, overwrite one of them with
the APs current configuration without changing the restore points name. Otherwise, an
unused configuration control slot may be used. This naming behavior is only present in
pre-e2.3 software releases (when using e2.3, existing configuration control restore points
may be overwritten with new names).
If an AP has been upgraded to e2.3, upon downgrading then re-upgrading the AP
software from a pre-e2.3 release to e2.3, non-default usernames and passwords added
in the pre-e2.3 release are deleted. This behavior is only exhibited when an AP with e2.3
software is downgraded, reconfigured with new usernames/passwords, and then re-
upgraded.

APPLICABILITY
The e2.3 PMP 320 System Release applies to the following products:
Access Point CAP 35320
Access Point CAP 36320
The e2.3 PMP 320 System Release contains the following components:
Access Point Version: System_Release_e2.3

NEW ACCESS POINT HARDWARE NOTIFICATIONS
IMPORTANT PMP 320 Access Points with Tanapa Numbers 3530CBA or 3630CBA
must NOT have their software downgraded FROM THE FACTORY VERSION (e2.1.1).
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 7
New versions of the PMP 320 Access Point have been shipping since mid-March 2011.
All units are labeled with a Model Number and a Tanapa Number. The Tanapa Number
is used to indicate the hardware version of the board. The currently shipping hardware
versions are listed below:
Model Number 3630APC, Tanapa=3630CBA
Model Number 3530APC, Tanapa=3530CBA

These units are shipping with PMP 320 software version e2.1.1. Downgrading units with
the Tanapa Numbers listed above will result in a locked, inaccessible radio that must be
returned to Cambium Networks for repair.
RELEASE HIGHLIGHTS
Improved Compatibility between UGPS Synchronized APs and CMM4 GPS
Synchronized APs
The PMP 320 AP software has been modified to ensure that APs that are transmission-
synchronized by a Universal GPS module (UGPS) do not interfere with APs that are
transmission-synchronized by a CMM4 module (with a GPS receiver). When upgraded
to Software Release e2.3, APs that are synchronized by a UGPS module and APs that
are synchronized by a CMM4 will transmit at the same time, thereby eliminating noise
received from nearby transmitting APs.
Expanded AP Performance Statistics
The APs performance statistics have been expanded to include MCS (Modulation and
Coding Scheme)-based statistical views as well as HARQ (Hybrid Automatic Repeat
reQuest) and Ethernet (wired interface) information. See section AP Statistics or more
information.
Frame Utilization Monitoring Updates
In Release e2.3, the APs Frame Utilization monitoring tool has been updated to include
better customization of data collection and additional statistics related to MCS
(Modulation and Coding Scheme) states, slot usage, and throughput. See section Frame
Utilization Monitoring for feature information and operating procedures.

AP STATISTICS
The PMP 320 AP contains network statistics and diagnostics that are available in the GUI
in the Performance Monitor menu which may be used to analyze and troubleshoot
network performance and operation.
Access Point Radio Info Menu
The APs Radio Info menu displays important radio link information for each registered
subscriber.

To retrieve statistical information via SNMP, an index must be appended to the SNMP
OID to distinguish for which MAC address statistics are being retrieved. For example, to
retrieve the Uplink RSSI 0 and RSSI 2 values for a CPE with MAC address
64:ed:57:40:00:9c, perform an SNMP get on the following OID:
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes

<danBsUlChannelRssiStream0>.<CPE MAC address in decimal>.<radio channel index>
.1.3.6.1.4.1.32584.1.8.2.1.4.100.237.87.64.0.156.0
In this example, <CPE MAC address in decimal> is represented in the above OID as
100.237.87.64.0.156 and <radio channel index> is represented as 0

RSSI 2:
<danBsUlChannelRssiStream0>.<CPE MAC address in decimal>.<radio channel index>
.1.3.6.1.4.1.32584.1.8.2.1.4.100.237.87.64.0.156.2
In this example, <CPE MAC address in decimal> is represented in the above OID as
100.237.87.64.0.156 and <radio channel index> is represented as 2


A large difference in RSSI values between the two uplink receive radio interfaces is to
be expected in certain RF environments. The AP is designed with two receive
antennas (one horizontal and one vertical). The CPE transmits on only one antenna,
which is vertical. In a LOS environment the vertical antenna will receive a higher level
of signal as it is receiving an unadulterated (vertical) signal. In an environment where
there is a lot of multipath or obstructions, the RSSI values will be much closer as the
APs antennas are receiving at a more consistent level.

Downlink,
MIMO Type
The MIMO Type is the type of MIMO (A or B) used for downlink transmissions.
Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) techniques provide protection against fading
and increase the probability that the receiver will decode a usable signal. When
the effects of MIMO are combined with those of OFDM techniques and a high link
budget, there is a high probability of a robust connection over a non-line-of-sight
path.

There are three major sub-features that comprise the MIMO techniques utilized in
the PMP 320 product:
Matrix B: This technique provides for the ability to double the throughput of a
radio transmission under proper RF conditions. Different data streams are
transmitted simultaneously on two different antennas.
Matrix A: This technique is also called Alamouti Space Time Coding. The
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 11
Attribute Meaning/SNMP Information
same data stream is transmitted at the same time on two different antennas
with special coding.
When transmitting in MIMO mode, the PMP 320 system also performs MRC:
MRC stands for Maximal Ratio Combining which is a form of receive diversity.
With this technique, two receivers and their associated antennas receive the
transmitted signal. The two received signals are combined into a single higher
quality signal. This technique increases the link budget of a system.
Downlink,
MCS
The MCS represents the Modulation and Coding Scheme used for the system
downlink. This state and its associated throughput capabilities, are based on the
PMP 320 system link budgets (see the PMP 320 Link Budget Table available on
the Cambium support website).

Access Point Traffic Info Menu
The APs Traffic Info menu displays details about the management traffic received and
sent via the APs wired (Ethernet) and wireless (radio) interfaces. It is important to note
that these values do not represent the actual RF link data throughput to monitor actual
RF throughput to the CPE operators may reference the Status menu of the CPE GUI
under WIMAX RX and WIMAX TX. This throughput data may also be accessed via
SNMP queries (reference the PMP 320 CPE MIB file for OID information) or via the APs
Downlink MCS Stats, Uplink MCS Stats, and HARQ Statistics menus.

To retrieve statistical information via SNMP, the interface identifier must be appended to
the SNMP OID. For example, to retrieve the Rx Octects count, perform and SNMP get
on the following OID:

Rx Octets:
<ifInOctects>.<Interface ID>
.1.3.6.1.2.1.2.2.1.10.3
In this example, <Interface ID> is represented as 3 (wired interface)

Active Service Flow Stats, Downlink MCS
The APs Downlink MCS menu displays information about the amount of data passed at
each MCS (Modulation and Coding Scheme) state per registered CPE. This menu is
useful for determining if CPEs are performing at the level they should be, based on the
PMP 320 link budgets (see the PMP 320 Link Budget Table available on the Cambium
support website ).

To retrieve statistical information via SNMP, an index must be appended to the SNMP
OID to distinguish for which MAC address CID information is being retrieved. For
example, to retrieve the byte count for 64QAM 5/6 for a CPE with MAC address
64:ed:57:40:00:9c and SF ID 5000, perform an SNMP get on the following OID:

Downlink Bytes transferred in 64QAM 5/6 MCS:
<danBsDlMcs64Qam56MimoBCount>.<MAC address in decimal>.<SF ID>
.1.3.6.1.4.1.32584.1.8.6.1.3.100.237.87.64.0.156.5000
In this example, <MAC address in decimal> is represented in the above OID as
100.237.87.64.0.156 and <SF ID> is represented as 5000 (service flow ID)

Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) techniques provide protection
against fading and increase the probability that the receiver will decode a
usable signal. When the effects of MIMO are combined with those of
OFDM techniques and a high link budget, there is a high probability of a
robust connection over a non-line-of-sight path.

There are three major sub-features that comprise the MIMO techniques
utilized in the PMP 320 product:
Matrix B: This technique provides for the ability to double the
throughput of a radio transmission under proper RF conditions.
Different data streams are transmitted simultaneously on two
different antennas.
Matrix A: This technique is also called Alamouti Space Time Coding.
The same data stream is transmitted at the same time on two
different antennas with special coding.

When transmitting in MIMO mode, the PMP 320 system also performs
MRC: MRC stands for Maximal Ratio Combining which is a form of
receive diversity. With this technique, two receivers and their associated
antennas receive the transmitted signal. The two received signals are
combined into a single higher quality signal. This technique increases
the link budget of a system.

FRAME UTILIZATION MONITORING
The Frame Utilization table located at the APs Performance Monitor > Frame
Utilization menu may be used to calculate frame usage on the PMP 320 downlink and
uplink. This calculation is valuable in answering the following questions:
RF link utilization is the RF link overloaded on the uplink or downlink,
or are the CPEs operating at the expected MCS (Modulation and Coding
Scheme) state?
Sector capacity does the AP have enough MAP slots available to
handle control messaging for all registered CPEs?
Network expansion feasibility- based on the RF link utilization, what can
be expected as the number of CPEs is increased?

Frame utilization data should be collected over an extended period of time that
includes peak and non-peak usage hours to properly analyze RF link utilization.
It is recommended to use an Analysis Interval (frames) of at least 100 frames
when using the monitor. Analyzing this sample size or greater ensures that the
resulting data provides a consistent representation of the RF link activity.
The frame utilization monitor may be configured, controlled, and monitored via SNMP
commands. See the procedure below for details on SNMP frame utilization usage.

3 Enter the interval (number) of frames to be monitored in the field Analysis Interval (frames). This
value represents the number of frames to be analyzed for utilization during each iteration of the
monitoring process starting when the operator clicks Start Data Collection and ending when the
operator clicks Stop Data Collection. During the collection, frame utilization analysis is performed
on consecutive frames.

Only when monitoring AP frame utilization with a single registered CPE, using an Analysis
Interval of 5 frames may produce varying throughput table results.
It is recommended to use an Analysis Interval (frames) of at least 100 frames when using
the monitor. Analyzing this sample size or greater ensures that the resulting data provides a
consistent representation of the RF link activity.

7 There are three table display option buttons available, Basic Metrics, MCS Metrics, and All Metrics,
detailed below.

Each metric may be retrieved individually via SNMP. Each metric is retrieved based on the System
Time for which the data was collected.

For example, to retrieve the first collection of DL Slots Used (%), begin by performing an SNMP
getnext command, similar to below:

snmpgetnext -v2c -c admin_admin 10.1.1.2 .1.3.6.1.4.1.32584.1.3.4.6.1.8
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.32584.1.3.4.6.1.8.3542662153 = INTEGER: 2

To retrieve the next collection of DL Slots Used (%), perform an SNMP getnext command using the
system time (in integer format) from the previous retrieval, similar to below:

snmpgetnext -v2c -c admin_admin 10.1.1.2
.1.3.6.1.4.1.32584.1.3.4.6.1.8.3542662153
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.32584.1.3.4.6.1.8.3542662158 = INTEGER: 1

Operators may also choose to retrieve all of the collection data at once, which may be performed by
issuing an SNMP walk command, similar to below:

snmpwalk -v2c -c admin_admin 10.1.1.2.1.3.6.1.4.1.32584.1.3.4.6
Result: All table values are retrieved and displayed

SYSTEM CONFIGURATION GUIDELINES
System Release e2.3-Specific Upgrade Notes
After upgrading a PMP 320 CSM to System Release e2.3 (CSM version 8.1.4), if the
CSM device type changes to generic in CNUT, the element may be changed back to a
PMP 320 CSM device in CNUT by right-clicking on the element and selecting Change
Network Element Type.
Before upgrading from e2.2.2 to e2.3, save a configuration restore point on the APs
Administration > Configuration Control GUI page. If it is required that the network is
reverted back to a pre-2.3 release, the configuration control point may be restored, and
all QoS and service flow configuration will be restored. Before upgrading to e2.3, if all
configuration restore points are already populated, overwrite one of them with the APs
current configuration without changing the restore points name. Otherwise, an unused
configuration control slot may be used. When using e2.3, configuration control restore
points may be created with new names.
Before upgrading to e2.3, the APs admin account password should be set to admin.
During the upgrade process, all AP usernames and passwords are reset to their default
values. By configuring the APs admin account password to its default value before
upgrading, the CNUT upgrade process will be completed in one step.
PMP 320 Module Staging
It is common to stage the equipment prior to installation on-site. During the staging
process, the modules may be upgraded to the latest software version, configured to the
operators specifications, and validated for proper functionality.
PMP 320 Module Pre-deployment Upgrading
When the radios arrive from the factory, the software version may be upgraded
immediately to take advantage of the latest software functionality and performance. The
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 53
following steps can be used to update a single AP and all of its CSMs in a rapid fashion.
This can be useful if a single sector is being updated for testing purposes. Also, these
operations are a logical building block for performing larger updates across your entire
network. By default the PMP 320 AP and CSM are configured in layer 3 mode, and the
AP will issue IP addresses (via DHCP) to the CSMs beginning with 192.168.4.20 for the
first registered SM, 192.168.4.21 for the second registered CSM, and so on.
Assumptions
Canopy Network Updater is installed and operational on your computer. The
software may be downloaded via the Cambium Support website.
The AP has a routable IP address that the Network Updater computer can
communicate.
All of the CSMs associated with the AP are powered up and currently registered
to the AP. By default, upon shipment and powering on the CSMs will register to
the AP (assuming the APs associated antenna is connected).
The Installation Package needed to upgrade the radio has been downloaded
from the Cambium Support website
(http://www.cambiumnetworks.com/support/pmp/software) and added to the
Network Updater through the Manage Packages operation (located in Update >
Manage Packages).
Steps to Perform a Single AP Sector Upgrade
1
Start Network Updater (CNUT).
2
If you dont start up with a blank new network file, then open a new network file
with the New Network Archive operation (see File > New Network Archive in
CNUT).
3
Enter a new network element to the empty network tree using the Add Elements
to Network Root operation (see Edit > Add Elements to Network Root in CNUT).
4
On the Add Elements dialogue, enter the IP address of the AP within the
Element Host Names area of the dialogue. The Telnet/FTP Login ID is admin
and the Telnet/FTP Password is admin. The SNMP Community string is
admin_admin. All other parameters in the dialogue may be left at their default
values.
5
On the Add Elements dialogue, enter the IP address of the CSM (beginning with
192.168.4.20 for the first registered CSM, 192.168.4.21 for the second
registered CSM, and so on). The Telnet/FTP Login ID is administrator and the
Telnet/FTP password is motorola. The SNMP Community string is private.
All other parameters in the dialogue may be left at their default values.

If a factory default procedure is initiated for a CSM with software version
>= f12b00-v8.1.4, the default Telnet/FTP password will be changed to
cambium.
6
Make sure the proper Installation Package is active with the Package Manager
dialogue (see Update > Manage Packages in CNUT).
7 To verify connectivity with the radio, perform a Discover Entire Network
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 54
operation (see View > Refresh/Discover Entire Network in CNUT). You should
see the details columns for the AP and CSMs be filled in with ESN and software
version information.
8
Initiate the upgrade of the AP and its CSMs using the Update Entire Network
Root operation (see Update > Update Entire Network Root in CNUT).
9
When the AP and all CSMs show updated software and FPGA version, the AP
sector upgrade is complete.

Quality of Service (QoS)
When configuring Classification Rules in a Layer 2 AP and using type Src MAC Addr
(Source MAC Address), the rule will only be functional for uplink traffic. This is due to the
inherent functionality of Layer 2 networks such that each routing device in the network
situated above the AP will modify the source MAC address field in the packet with its own
MAC address. Therefore, the source MAC address field may not represent the
originating device by the time the classification rule is applied to the packet.
When creating uplink service flows on the CSM the user may only create one uplink
service flow with HARQ enabled. Operators requiring more than one uplink service flow
with HARQ enabled should deploy CSMs with software release 7.1.3.
Service flows and impacts to single CSM throughput: In certain scenarios presence of
additional higher priority QOS service flows to a single CSM will impact the maximum
possible throughput of the CSM.
HARQ Configuration Recommendations:
The recommended service flow configuration for systems not exhibiting packet
loss is with HARQ Disabled.
Enabling HARQ with Retries=0 is NOT a valid configuration for uplink or downlink
service flows.
Please refer to the PMP 320 Administration and Configuration Guide for more
details.
Downlink Service Flow HARQ Configuration Details:
To reduce downlink packet loss and to minimize fluctuations in TCP
throughput operators may configure Best Effort (BE), Non-realtime polling
service (nrtPS), and Real-time polling service (rtPS) service flows with HARQ
enabled and Retries > 0. If VOIP-specific QoS profiles are required, rtPS
may be used to handle the traffic (with HARQ enabled).
Do not configure HARQ enabled with > 0 retries for Unsolicited Grant Service
(UGS) and Extended-real time polling service (ertPS) QoS types. Even in
systems exhibiting downlink packet loss, using these service flows with
HARQ disabled is recommended to maximize performance of applications
that benefit from these data delivery types (i.e. VOIP, Video).
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 55
Although total sector throughput is not impacted, enabling downlink HARQ
will restrict single CSM downlink TCP throughput to <= 10 Mbps.
Uplink Service Flow HARQ Configuration Details:
To reduce uplink packet loss and to minimize fluctuations in TCP throughput
operators may configure Best Effort (BE), Non-realtime polling service
(nrtPS), and Real-time polling service (rtPS) service flows with HARQ
enabled and Retries > 0. If VOIP-specific QoS profiles are required, rtPS
may be used to handle the traffic (with HARQ enabled).
Do not configure HARQ enabled with > 0 retries for Unsolicited Grant Service
(UGS) and Extended-real time polling service (ertPS) QoS types. Even in
systems exhibiting uplink packet loss, using these service flows with HARQ
disabled is recommended to maximize performance of applications that
benefit from these data delivery types (i.e. VOIP, Video).
Prior to release e2.1, it was recommended that VOIP support in the PMP 320 system is
set up via configuration of UGS service flows. Starting from e2.1 ertPS is the
recommended data delivery configuration for VOIP services. The key differentiator is that
for UGS, the PMP 320 AP will reserve the uplink bandwidth based on the MIR/CIR values
for that service flow regardless of traffic being present or not. This can be a limiting factor
for the number of subscribers one can provision for VOIP before running into UL
bandwidth limitations. In the case of ertPS, the bandwidth is allocated only when the
CSM requests it via a polling mechanism.
Radio Link
Software release e2.2 included design improvements in the PMP 320 uplink algorithm for
packet loss reduction in challenging RF environments and for better sector capacity.
Operators may observe uplink MCS state transitions sooner (2dB - 3dB) at a given RSSI
than what is detailed in the PMP320 Link Budget Table. Since CINR Uplink Backoff
values are global parameters affecting the entire sector, operators deploying CINR
backoff values of 6dB or greater should revisit configured CINR backoff parameters and
reduce the backoff by 3dB to coordinate with the e2.2 design improvements.
In order for a radio to achieve a particular uplink modulation and coding state (i.e.
quam64-ctc-5/6, qam16-ctc-3/4, qpsk-ctc-3/4, etc.) certain CINR value requirements
must be met. For example, a 10MHz channel bandwidth AP has a minimum uplink CINR
requirement of 25 dB to achieve maximum MCS qam64-ctc-5/6. For state qam16-ctc-
3/4, the AP has a minimum uplink CINR requirement of 22 dB. See document PMP320
Link Budget Table on the Cambium Support website for detailed descriptions and
tables on MCS CINR requirements. Since these requirements contain a corresponding
minimum required AP receive power level, the AP adjusts the SM transmit power level
accordingly for each MCS state. By increasing the uplink backoff parameters, the
required uplink CINR levels for each MCS state are increased, resulting in stricter uplink
CINR requirements for each MCS state and generally reduced SM transmit levels.
For example, a configured uplink backoff value of 6dB for a 10MHz channel bandwidth
AP will translate as follows:

qpsk-ctc-3/4 11 -87 14
qpsk-ctc-1/2 5 -93 8
Sensitivity 4 -94 7
If upgrading from software release e2.1.1 (and only e2.1.1) to e2.3, operators with
previously applied uplink backoff values will need to re-apply the desired values in AP
Configuration > Air Interface > CINR Configuration after upgrading to release e2.3. Once
the values are entered, click Update, click the Save icon, then reset the AP.
After the AP upgrade to e2.3 is complete, log in to the AP GUI and browse to AP
Configuration > Air Interface > CINR Configuration. Confirm that both the downlink and
uplink backoff fields display a numerical value rather than a No Access error. If the
error message is displayed, enter the desired backoff values, save the changes, and
reboot the AP.
When using the PMP 320 CSM (CSM 35320 or CSM 36320), the downlink backoff
should always be set to the default value of 3 dB.
Spectrum Analyzer Mode
Spectrum Analyzer mode is a listening-only radio function and when using this mode all
AP to CSM communication will cease until AP is changed back to Operation Mode
Internal AAA or External AAA.
The AP spectrum analyzer is constantly scanning once enabled and hence is not timed
with only the UL or DL portions of reception. The spectrum analyzer will report power
from APs and CSMs alike so proper planning and understanding of the results must be
PMP 320 Release e2.3 Release Notes



Issue 2, May 2012 Page 57
applied. If the purpose of the spectrum analysis being conducted is to determine RF
integrity of the environment or to look for transmitters outside of the PMP 320 towers,
then all PMP 320 APs should be turned off or turned into spectrum analyzer mode. If the
purpose of the spectrum analysis being conducted is to determine RF levels arriving from
various PMP 320 units, dont forget to plan for collocated APs and remote towers that
might have a clear view of your spectrum analyzer. Remember, when the AP is actually
functioning with synchronization, the AP receiver will not hear any of the other APs.
For best results of the spectrum analyzer, change the AP channel bandwidth to 5MHz
prior to setting the AP into spectrum analyzer mode. Setting the AP channel bandwidth
to 5MHz increases the resolution of each scan and gives a more detailed image of the
RF environment.
MIB Support
PMP 320 AP and CSM MIB files are available on the Cambium Support website
(http://www.cambiumnetworks.com/support/pmp/software under PMP Enterprise MIBs).
Please ensure to review accompanying MIB guideline spreadsheet to understand
dependencies. Incorrect MIB usage may result in an unstable system.
AP DHCP Server
When operating in Layer 3 mode, in order for the AP to activate its DHCP server to
allocate IP addressing information, the DHCP Dynamic Pools IP space must not overlap
with the DHCP Static Pools IP space.

3.65 GHz band (3675 3700 MHz)
frequencies into the APs Center Frequency
(KHz) field (located in the AP GUI at AP
Configuration > Air Interface > WiMAX
Capabilities). This allows non-US operators
to transmit using upper 3.65 GHz band
frequencies without utilizing the APs
contention-based upper 3.65 GHz scanning
protocol (i.e. AP GUI parameter North
America: Upper 3.65 Scanning is set to
Disable).
All customers configuring operating
frequencies outside of the 3.675 3.700
GHz range should set the AP GUI parameter
North America: Upper 3.65 Scanning to
Disable.

For compliance with Section 90.7 of Part 90
of the United States FCC, US PMP 320
operators must use the restricted contention-
based scanning protocol when using
frequencies in the upper 3.65 GHz band.

10228 AP GUI downlink RSSI is
refreshed every 60 seconds
In Release e2.3, the APs GUI downlink
RSSI value is only refreshed every 60
seconds (all other information is refreshed
every 2 seconds). The frequency of the
refresh of downlink RSSI information is to be
increased in a later release.

10178 If an AP has been upgraded to
e2.3, upon downgrading then re-
upgrading the AP software from
a pre-e2.3 release to e2.3, non-
default usernames and
passwords added in the pre-
e2.3 release are deleted.
This behavior is only exhibited when an AP
with e2.3 software is downgraded,
reconfigured with new
usernames/passwords, and then re-
upgraded.

To resolve the change of the CSMs
representation in CNUT operators may right-
click on the element and select Change
Network Element Type to set the device
type back to PMP 320 CSM. Alternatively,
the generic device may be removed from the
CNUT network and re-added as a PMP 320
CSM device.

After software upgrade or

operation as unsuccessful
If downgrading from CSM version 8.1.4
(System Release e2.2.2) to 8.0.0 (System
Release e2.2.1), operators may need to
refresh the CSM GUI or reboot the CSM in
order to see the update in the software
version. If the GUI refresh or CSM reboot
does not result in an updated display of the
CSM software version, reinitiate the CNUT
downgrade.

1435 CSM DHCP Client List not
persistent across CSM reboots
After the CSM has successfully leased IP
address information to a device situated
below it, if the CSM is rebooted the CSM
DHCP Client List will not display the clients
that have successfully received IP
addressing information. If the DHCP clients
re-request IP addressing information from
the CSM, the clients are displayed again in
the CSM DHCP Client List.

1175 QoS Profiles Lost when
Downgrading from e2.3 to any
Previous Software Release
The following procedure should be
executed prior to upgrading to e2.3 to
ensure that QoS and service flow
information may be reinstated in case of
a downgrade from e2.3 to a previous
software release.
Before upgrading from a pre-e2.3
release to e2.3, save a configuration
restore point on the APs
Administration > Configuration
Control GUI page. If it is required that
the network is reverted back to a pre-2.3
release, the configuration control point
may be restored, and all QoS and
service flow configuration will be
restored. For pre-e2.3 software
releases only, if all configuration restore
points are already populated, overwrite
one of them with the APs current
configuration without changing the
restore points name. Otherwise, an
unused configuration control slot may be
used. This naming behavior is only
present in pre-e2.3 software releases
(when using e2.3, existing configuration
control restore points may be overwritten
with new names).

CSM
1178 Inability to Create More Than
One Uplink Service Flow with
HARQ Enabled
When creating uplink service flows on the
CSM the user may only create one uplink
service flow with HARQ enabled. Operators
requiring more than one uplink service flow
with HARQ enabled should deploy CSMs
with software release 7.1.3.

1162 In CSM installations with poor
RSSI conditions (close to radio
sensitivity, -94 dBm), the CSM
may display incorrect values for
Zone CINR channel 0
In CSM installations with poor RSSI
conditions, the CSM may display on its
homepage invalid values for Zone CINR
channel 0 resulting in radio link MCS states
that are not in alignment with the Zone CINR
that is reported (see Tables 12-8 and 12-9 in
the PMP 320 Administration and
Configuration Guide). Operators are
encouraged to evaluate potential physical
interferers and also to relocate CSM units for
better signal quality.

Default Gateway Configuration
to maintain accessibility to AP
GUI via Ethernet
If the AP does not have a valid default
gateway IP address configured, while traffic
will continue to pass through the system,
users may lose connectivity to the AP
management GUI via Ethernet. Configuring
a valid default gateway IP address in the AP
and resetting the unit will reestablish
connectivity from a directly connected PC to

There are two ways to reestablish IPSEC
VPN tunnel traffic when this issue is
encountered. One way is to reset the edge
routers in the network or the SM which is
carrying the VPN traffic. Another way is to
halt the VPN traffic through the PMP 320
