Sierra Wireless 320U firmware upgrade: Dovado advisory

Telstra Sierra Wireless 320U 4G/LTE modemDovado are currently advising that the latest Telstra firmware for the Sierra Wireless 320U 4G/LTE modem will cause the modem to stop working with their TINY, 4GR and DOMA routers. They will release a fix for this interoperability issue in the next Dovado firmware release, presumably Dovado firmware 6.1.4, which I’d estimate will be available in a matter of days rather than weeks. (The Dovado firmware version at time of writing is 6.1.3.)

The Telstra Sierra Wireless 320U firmware to avoid until the fix is available is labelled

    Is Sierra Wireless Aircard 320u supports both TDD & FDD modes?

  2. gerry says

    I’ll have to get back to you on that. The Sierra Wireless website isn’t clear on that.

  3. Niranjan says

    Yes.Pls let me know whether it is supports TDD & FDD modes?
    Thank You!

  4. gerry says

    The Sierra Wireless 320U is solely an FDD product.

  5. Niranjan says

    Ok .Thank You!!

    I’ve read the 320u was both TDD and FDD on another site – “Earlier versions of the Telstra branded Sierra Wireless 320U USB modem do not support Telsra’s 4G LTE service. These earlier 320U’s were 4G-LTE-1800 in TDD mode only. Telstras 4G LTE service uses FDD mode. At some point after Telstra rolled ou 4G LTE, Sierra began supplying these modems to Telstra with an updated chipset supporting 4G-LTE-1800 in FDD mode”

    Is the firmware upgrade still a problem 2013 – or is the comments timestamp here broken?

  7. replicant says

    I have a Tiny and have just picked up a second hand 320u. Now I’m concerned it may not work.

  8. gerry says

    @replicant The FDD info came from Dovado – I generally bow to their greater wisdom. However things move on quickly with 4G devices. Let us know how you get on with the 320U.

    The modem firmware issue was resolved with 6.1.4 in 2012.
