Please be noted the commands related to “packet-forwarder” in this guide only work on Actility LRR, not other vendors’ packet-forwarder.

Hi Jun Wen,

I'm working with the IXM-LPWA-800-16-K9 LoRa gateway, where:

The system version is:

Corsica Software, Version 2.0.11, RELEASE SOFTWARE

Technical Support:

Copyright (c) 2012-2014, 2017 by Cisco Systems, Inc.

Compiled 18-Sep-2017.16:19:04UTC-07:00 by Corsica Team

ROM: Bootstrap program is Corsica boot loader

Firmware Version  : 2.0.11, RELEASE SOFTWARE

Bootloader Version: 20170515_cisco

cisco model: IXM-LPWA-800-16-K9

Processor  : ARMv7 Processor rev 1 (v7l) with 1027308K bytes of memory.

The FPGA versione is:

INFO: SPI speed set to 2000000 Hz

checking FPGA version...

FPGA version: 58

HAL version: 5.0.0

SX1301 #0 version: 103

SX1301 #0 chip ID: 1

SX1301 #1 version: 103

SX1301 #1 chip ID: 1

##PASS: FPGA version check OK

The packet forwarder version is

PublicKeyStatus : Installed

FirmwareStatus : Installed

PacketFwdVersion : 1.8.19

LRRID : 68ba4729

PartnerID : 0001

If I perform the following command (from configure terminal):

packet-forwarder start


packet-forwarder restart

I have a Radio issue.

17:46:21.404  (1825) [../lgw_x8.c:733] RADIO configured

17:46:21.404  (1825) [../lgw_x8.c:755] RADIO starting ...

17:46:21.404  (1825) [../lgw_x8.c:760] BOARD0 RADIO cannot be started ret=-1 'Invalid version number for the top FPGA'

So the packet forwarder doesn't start.

How could I solve this issue?

Please read the release notes of 2.0.11 for LRR support version.

Hi Jun,

no I didn't.

I found this packet forwarder version on the cisco gateway. I didn't perform any kind of upgrade.

How could I upgrade the pktfwd to the lastest 2.2.46?

best regards.

Hi Ivano,

We would expect that you receive Thingpark LRR package through your standard channel.

If not, please, send me an e-mail, I will forward you a no-config LRR package.

Our software image never pre-install any LRR from manufacturing. No idea how you got this unit with LRR pre-installed, it is abnormal.
