Updating card firmware for Encrypted Wavelength

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 Encrypted Wavelength:

  1. Click Services.

    Control Center shows the Services console. Use the console to access an inventory of your services, check the status of orders, and manage your services.
