VXL1-16P Firmware V2.0.0
- To update the VXL1-16P firmware, please refer to the VXL1-16P Firmware Updater User Guide. To update the Dante Firmware, please refer to the Dante Firmware Update Manager User Guide.
- Do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network. Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts. Therefore we strongly recommend that:
- If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
- If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.

Main Revisions and Enhancements
New Functions in V2.0.0
- Supports AES67.
Improvements in V2.0.0
- The remote control has been modified to accept commands correctly even if unnecessary spaces have been included at the beginning or end of the command string.
- Unit IDs between 1 and 127 can now be used for the remote control. For details, refer to the VXL1-16P Remote Control Protocol Specifications V 2.0.0.
New Functions in V1.2.0
- You can now set the IP address using remote control protocol commands. For details, refer to the VXL1-16P Remote Control Protocol Specifications Version 1.2.0.
- Now supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), a remote management protocol. It can be used in an environment combined with the ADECIA RM-CR.
New Functions in V1.1.0
- Now supports the RM series devices.
- Now supports detection/automatic patches operations from RM-CR, by using RM-CR's Web UI.
Fixed Bugs in V1.1.0
- Fixed the problem in which, depending on the combination of the PoE compliant switch and other PoE compliant devices used, the VXL1-16P operates at a volume lower than the original performance.
- Power cycle the Dante-enabled devices that have been upgraded, to finish applying the firmware update and restore your configuration. If the device is not power cycled or rebooted, the update will not be applied.
- In the Dante model, Dante Device Labels can be changed arbitrarily and permanently. These changes can be made from the Dante Controller software.
However, since the five initial characters are used for device identification (decided by UNIT ID), they should not be changed. The 6th character and subsequent ones can be changed arbitrarily.
Moreover, the following rules concerning Dante Device Labels are common to all Dante devices (and not just this one):
- Conventional characters (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase), numerals, or hyphens (-) can be used.
- A maximum of 31 characters can be entered.
