I’ve been using EPM for several years now, and recently I was asked to troubleshoot an issue on a Yealink T48G. While looking at the device, I noticed that the firmware version is over three years old. I checked Yealink’s site and noticed there is a newer T48G firmware from September, 2019.
I attempted a manually upgrade to test if this made any difference, but, of course, after it upgraded, EPM noted the different firmware version and downgraded back to the old version. Ok, fully understand that.
So I went to look at the current firmware version for Yealink in EPM, which is listed as 1.18.
I then looked at the latest FreePBX firmware documentation to check device versions listed. Guess what, the lastest Yealink EPM documented firmware is 1.17.
So, my questions are, how often does EPM repackage and update the firmware versions? Is it as new firmware is released from vendors, or is it more of a ‘as needed’ decision? Does the documentation not get updated when new firmware versions are released? (I could understand if it was just released, but my phones have been using EPM 1.18 for Yealink for at least a year).
