Firmware update with improved security and compatibility now available for Huawei ME906s-158 2017-12-22 08:56:54

Huawei have released a new firmware package V13.0 (12.500.00.01.00) for the Huawei ME906s-158 cellular module:
10343 Huawei ME906s-158 M.2 module

The firmware update package improves module security and compatibility for future LTE networks implementing 3GPP Release 13 with the enhanced Machine-Type Communications features (LTE Cat M).

Summary of firmware changes:
• Several Linux kernel security updates.
• Update of HiSilicon chipset baseband firmware.
• Fix of compatibility with 3GPP R13 eMTC feature.

Cellular LTE network technology is based on the standards created by 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Most LTE networks today are based on release 12 or lower of the standard. Network operators implementing enhanced Machine-Type Communications and other new features will most likely migrate to 3GPP Release 13 once local market demand for it exist.

Between these 3GPP releases a definition change of the internally used MIB messages (MasterInformationBlock) have been applied. This change in network can lead to incompatibility situations with the previous firmware versions used in ME906s-158 and make it only able to access cellular networks with 3G and 2G modes.
