RADWIN 2000 Release 2.8
Release Note
February 2013

8 Compatibility
Component Description
 Software upgrade can be applied from any previous RADWIN 2000 release
1. Software Upgrade
(except RADWIN 2000 L & PDH)
 RADWIN Manager Release 9.4.50 is compatible with RADWIN 2000
releases 2.1 – 2.8 and with WinLink 1000 releases 1.600 - 1.9.50
 Early versions of RADWIN Manager for WinLink 1000 can be installed in
parallel to the current RADWIN Manager to support previous older WinLink
2. RADWIN Manager
1000 releases
 When connecting RADWIN Manager older releases (prior to 9.3.00) to an
ODU with release 2.6.40 or later, there is an indication "newer release is
available” and it runs with limited management functionality.
 RADWIN 2000 ODU release 2.8 build b2980 supports ODU hardware
3. ODU
revisions 1 - 9
 RADWIN 2000 radios release 2.8 with Hardware version 6 - 9 can work with
IDU-Cs RD-7200-2000 or with PoE devices RD-9921-0101 with GBE
functionality.
 GbE PoE P/N: RD-9921-2019
4. IDU and PoE device
 When connecting an RADWIN 2000 radio to any other IDU, an
incompatibility alarm is issued and a link is not established.
 Connecting an RADWIN 2000 radio to any other PoE device (e.g.
AT006284X) will yield indeterminate results.
 Due to a regulatory change, a software upgrade is required for 5.4 FCC
products. A link operating at 5.600-5.650GHz will be dropped and
5. 5.4 FCC
reestablished after the upgrade, using the new channel required by the new
FCC guideline.
