ISR1100 VDSL Controller Activation

Hi All,

 

I have ISR1117 with VDSL controller and modem firmware installed as A2pv6F039t.d26d. 

Do you know if I need to configure any firmware under controller interface like Cisco 887 router?

Or is it enough to plug in VDSL line into the port to activate controller interface?

Re: ISR1100 VDSL Controller Activation

Hello Umutyasar,

use the following document as a reference for your device:

 

https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/access/1100/software/configuration/xe-16-9/cisco_1100_series_swcfg_xe_16_9_x/cisco_1100_series_swcfg_chapter_01001.html

 

configuring the controller with mode vdsl2 may be a good starting point.

It also depends on what type of VDSL you have to use.

 

Hope to help

Hello,

 

which country are you in, and who is your provider/ISP ?

Re: ISR1100 VDSL Controller Activation

Hi,

 

I'm in Australia and provider TPG.

The operating mode is VDSL2 and using 17a profile.

 

@Guiseppe, yes, I used this document and configured according to this.

But in cisco 887 I configured before like below to use vdsl controller:

controller VDSL 0
operating mode vdsl2
firmware filename flash:VA_A_38k1_B_38h_24g1.bin

 

I'm wondering if I need to do similar "firmware filename ..." config for ISR1100 or its plug & play and no need to add similar line for the controller to become active.

Re: ISR1100 VDSL Controller Activation

Hello,

 

is the 'firmware' command actually an option under the controller ?

 

ISR1100(config-controller)# ?

Hi,

 

Yes, firmware command actually is an option under the vdsl controller.

Hello,

 

I cannot find any reference or sample config where that line is needed. Does it work without ?

Yes, I couldn't find any document if this line is needed as well.  Since I haven't got any test line I couldn't test it. I need to send it to the site soon, I wanted to be sure about that before sending it.

Re: ISR1100 VDSL Controller Activation

Hi,

 

I contacted Cisco tac related to this query.

They told me it will work without this command since it comes with a modem firmware installed already by default, that is what was expected.

This command needs to be used if modem firmware upgrade required.

Re: ISR1100 VDSL Controller Activation

Hello Umut,

thanks for your feedback TAC answer makes sense.

The command is only needed if you want the modem to start with a different newer firmware version and this is not your case at the moment.

 

Hope to help

Giuseppe
