SECMP0024 Enduring Approach to Communication Hub Firmware Management

Proposer Rob Williams
Lead Analyst Joe Hehir
Date raised 27/10/2016
StagePending Implementation
Implementation date 30/06/2022 (June 22 SEC Release)
Latest update On 25 August 2021 the Change Board voted to approve this modification under Self-Governance. This modification will be implemented on 30 June 2022 (June 2022 SEC Release).

What is the issue?

The Proposer notes that there is nothing in place to automatically notify Suppliers once firmware updates have been activated on Communications Hubs (CHs). The Proposer also considers there to be a lack of a formalised process for managing firmware updates to CHs between the DCC and Suppliers.

What is the solution?

The Proposed Solution seeks to implement a new DCC Alert that will be sent to Suppliers upon firmware being activated on Communications Hubs. This Alert will contain the Communications Hub firmware version.

Who is impacted?

Large Suppliers
Small Suppliers
DCC

What SEC documents are affected?
