BDCOM P3608B Firmware Update

In this article, I will update the firmware on BDCOM P3608B EPON OLT.

You perform all update actions at your own peril and risk!
Let’s make sure that the OLT model is with the letter B, for example P3608B, and not P3608:

For example, I got:

BDCOM(tm) P3608B Software, Version 10.1.0F Build 58197
Copyright by Shanghai Baud Data Communication CO. LTD.
Compiled: 2018-10-30 16:28:1 by SYS, Image text-base: 0x80008000
ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 0.1.4, Serial num:xxx
System image file is "flash:/Switch.bin"
hardware version:A
(RISC) processor with 524288K bytes of memory, 65536K bytes of flash
Base ethernet MAC Address: 98:45:62:xx:xx:xx
PCB version:A

Updating the firmware from the wrong model will lead to a cyclic reboot of the OLT, you can restore it through the console (the cable pinout is standard like that of D-Link, Cisco, Juniper, Huawei), I wrote more in the article – BDCOM OLT Recovery

Let’s see what files are in memory:


Let’s make a backup copy of the startup-config configuration and the Switch.bin firmware file to the TFTP server:

copy flash tftp

Since there is enough memory, we will copy the firmware file from the TFTP server to the OLT memory under a different name, for example 88803.bin (OLT may not accept with underscores):

copy tftp flash

The firmware file that I used can be downloaded here:

Now let’s quickly delete the main firmware file and name the new file by its name:

delete Switch.bin
rename 88803.bin Switch.bin

Restart OLT:
