Updating your CertiFiber Pro (Versiv)

This article describes the update process for a Versiv Main and Remote unit. Once the Main unit is updated, any OptiFiber Pro, CertiFiber Pro, or DSX CableAnalyzer module that is inserted into it will automatically be updated as well (this only takes a few seconds). Note that in the case of OptiFiber Pro modules, no Versiv Remote unit is used, so the steps for updating the Remote unit may be ignored if you are only using OptiFiber Pro.

TAC Pro Tip:

If you are updating multiple test sets, you do not need to connect each unit to the PC to push the update

Do you have multiple Versiv sets to update? If you update one Versiv main unit and it's companion remote, you can then take the updated Versiv main unit and connect it to another Versiv main unit with a prior software version in order update it. Connect the Type A (larger) USB connector to the already updated Versiv main unit and the Micro-B USB connector to the Versiv main unit in need of an update, wait 10 seconds, and you will be prompted to update the Versiv main unit that is running older software. It will call it a "remote", but that is OK - it will get the update it needs. Follow the on-screen instructions to send the update over the USB cable connection. The update file first gets transferred, then installed, then the newly updated unit will reboot itself. After the main unit updates, swap the USB cable ends to connect the updated Versiv main unit to its companion remote unit. Wait 10 seconds and you will be prompted to update the Versiv remote, which is running an older version of software. Tap Continue and complete the update.

If you have a mix of Versiv and Versiv2 main and remote units, remember that for updating and testing compatibility, you need to ensure that Versiv main units go with Versiv remotes and Versiv2 main units go with Versiv2 remotes.

Update February 2020: Update to version 6.5 or later and you can use Versiv and Versiv2 units together to run tests.

Versiv2 units have built-in wireless capability, Versiv units use a TP-Link wifi adapter for wireless capability. Look at the top right part of the front of the case on Versiv main and remote to determine which model you have.
