Generate update strings for other revisions
If your firmware version is not listed above, run the fota application from a Windows command
prompt. For example:
C:\>fota ftp1.digi.com 21 anonymous test support/telit UpdPkg_LE910_SV1_
1G_20.00.012.2_20.00.015.0.bin

F9TVjFfMUdfMjAuMDAuMDEyLjJfMjAuMDAuMDE1LjAuYmlu
The above strings obtain the modem update file from the Digi FTP server. The APN configured on the
modem must have access to the Internet to use this server. This is usually the case if no APN is
configured.
If your APN does not provide Internet access, you can use an FTP server on your private network.
Place the modem update file on the FTP server. Run the command below to generate the update
string. Be sure to substitute your FTP server parameters.

Update the modem firmware over the air (FOTA) Step 3: Initiate the firmware update
Digi Connect® Sensor Telit Modem Firmware Update - Verizon 9
The next time the Connect Sensor is scheduled to connect to Remote Manager, it will start the
modem firmware update process. To cause the device to connect immediately, press the Wake button
on the device.
Once started, the update will take a few minutes to complete. After the device completes the update,
it will reconnect to the Remote Manager the next time it is scheduled.
Updating multiple devices
The above example shows how to update a single Connect Sensor. More than one device can be
updated with a single Remote Manager request.
To update a list of devices, add their device IDs to <targets> in the request. For example:
<targets>
<device id="00010000-00000000-03566100-79000697"/>
<device id="00010000-00000000-03566100-79000698"/>
<device id="00010000-00000000-03566100-79000699"/>
<device id="00010000-00000000-03566100-7900069A"/>
<device id="00010000-00000000-03566100-7900069B"/>
</targets>
To update all devices in a Remote Manager group, add the group name to <targets>. For example:
<targets>
<group path="my_group"/>
</targets>
