CDRouter 12.20 Release Notes

release-note version 12.21

CDRouter 12.20 October 21, 2021


New Features

  • TR-069: Sixteen (16) new bulk data test cases have been added to the tr69_annex_n test module. These new tests add coverage for ParameterPerColumn formatted CSV data and NameValuePair formatted JSON data. Descriptions for all tests in this module may be found here. [sc13341]

  • USP: Note for customers testing USP/TR-369: Version 1.1 of the official Broadband Forum test specification, TP-469, is scheduled for release later this year. It includes some fixes to the test metrics as well as new test cases. We are incorporating the upcoming changes now, and will make them available via an engineering build to USP expansion owners who want to test against the new plan. Please contact us if you would like to install this engineering build.

Change Log

  • CDRouter: MAC addresses for various stacks will be dynamically configured by CDRouter by default and in future releases. The testvar cdrouterOui may be used to set the OUI for all MAC addresses dynamically created by CDRouter. [sc13609]

    Additional changes related to MAC address assignments will be made in future releases. This work is needed to enable exciting new features that will be available in 2022.

    We recommend that all customers running performance tests set the testvar perfWanMac to a fixed value to avoid potential MAC address conflicts:

    testvar perfWanMac b0:75:0c:dd:83:eb
    
  • CDRouter: Fixed a few memory leaks within binaries that are linked to by CDRouter. [sc12107]

  • CDRouter: The wifi_10 test case has been updated with improved logging and support for WPA3 “transition mode”. [sc12141]

  • CDRouter: Resolved an issue in the web API when editing the testlist for a test package. In previous releases, testlists containing quoted test case names would corrupt the database preventing any further test package related operations. The web API will now treat any quoted test case names in a testlist as unknown tests. If you have experienced this issue and would like assistance, please contact support@qacafe.com. [sc13755]

  • Security: The ET Open ruleset shipped with the CDRouter Security add-on has been updated to version 9851. [sc13483]

  • TR-069: Updated many TR-069 tests to automatically force all wireless clients to reconnect in the event the DUT reboots. [sc12121]

  • TR-069: The tr69_annex_n test module has been updated to handle escaped control characters in CSV formatted data. [sc13419]

  • USP: Resolved an issue in the usp_8 and usp_9 test cases which were not using the correct testvars uspValidSearchPathResultParam and uspValidSearchPathResultValue. [sc13668]

  • USP: The default value of the testvar uspValidSearchPath has been updated to be a partial path. [sc13668]

  • USP: Added support for handling error messages mid-block transfer in with CoAP MTP. [sc13932]

Notices

  • NTA1000 rail kits now available: We now have sliding rack rail kits for NTA1000v6 and NTA1000v7 systems! Please contact support@qacafe.com for more information.
