Updating card firmware for your Encrypted Wavelength service

For security, you should periodically request firmware updates for the network cards associated with your Encrypted Wavelength service. When you request a firmware update, the updates begin immediately after you submit the request, so you'll want to coordinate the upgrade with Lumen Operations in case you have a problem or need help.

To update card firmware for your Encrypted Wavelength service:

  1. Click Inventory, then click Inventory.

    Control Center displays a list of all services assigned to the accounts under your enterprise ID.

  1. Search for the Encrypted Wavelength service you want to work with. (In the Products column, look for Wavelength—Encrypted.) When you find it, click the blue service ID link for the service.

    Control Center displays details for the service you selected.

  1. Click Encryption Management.

    Control Center displays information for the Encrypted Wavelength service such as the location of the two cards, bandwidth for the service, and whether the service is protected or unprotected.

    • If the service is unprotected, you see one path: Work.

    • If the service is protected, you'll see two paths: Work and Protect.
