To apply a custom speed profile (aka binary), you must be running version 3.0 or later of the firmware on your ApexPlus or GigaPlus.
First, transfer the custom profile file to the radio via tftp or ftp. If TFTP is used, ensure that TFTPD is enabled on the radio and the file is transferred in binary mode. Be sure to maintain the file name (case sensitive) and only transfer the .bin file. The file names must be named to take the place of a profile with the same name. The factory profiles will not be removed from the radio, but the custom profile will take precedence over the factory profile.
C:\TrangoLink_GigaPlus>tftp -i 192.168.100.100 put T1_FIBER_NOACM_Q64_10.bin
Transfer successful: 9400 bytes in 1 second(s), 9400 bytes/s
Load the custom profile by using the add custom profile button on the system setting page of the web interface or CLI command custom_profile add. This copies the file from the temporary location to flash storage.
(CLI-config)# custom_profile add
Set the appropriate speed (i.e. bandwidth, modulation, acm and datapath setting - all must match the name used for the custom binary). The speed should be set to match the filename of the profile you are replacing. (i.e. A 15 MHz channel could replace a 56 MHz profile, and would be set as a 56 MHz bandwidth to load the custom profile.)
(CLI-config)# datapath 1 Datapath: ETH+T1 SUCCESS (CLI-config)# speed 10 qam64 Custom profile in use Modulation: 64QAM Bandwidth: 10.00 Symrate: 8.32 Speed: 46.00 SUCCESS
The radio will look in the custom profile location. If the correct setting is found, it will use that profile. Otherwise, it will use the factory profile.
The interface should indicate a custom binary is being used.
To remove a custom profile:
Use the remove custom profile function on the system web page. All custom profiles will be removed. For this reason it is strongly suggested that you ensure you have another copy of the profile other than what is stored on the radio.
