LE Modem Firmware Update Notification

May 5, 2015

What is it?
Cradlepoint has posted new firmware for LE-VZ embedded/integrated modems that addresses potential modem memory corruption. Please note that modem firmware is separate from router firmware.
Are my devices affected?
If you are running a router with an LE-VZ modem, and GPS functionality is enabled, please follow the mitigation steps below.  Note - default GPS setting is “not enabled” (except PWD version)
List of LE-VZ products that could be affected:
2100LE-VZF (MC300LE-VZ)
IBR600LE-VZ-PWD (GPS is enabled as default setting)
Not Affected

  • Products with any other modem (including all products with “LPE” modems)
Mitigation Steps: what actions do I take?
- If you have an LE-VZ modem with GPS enabled, you must upgrade the modem firmware to version
- Cradlepoint recommends all users of LE-VZ modems utilize this upgrade
