The serial number is a 12-digit number present on the rear panel of the device. Serial numbers are case-sensitive.

Auto Activate

Click the toggle button to enable or disable automatic activation of the CPE device.

When you enable this field, zero-touch provisioning (ZTP) of the CPE device is automatically triggered after the site is added to CSO.

The device template that you select determines whether this option is enabled or disabled by default.

The boot image is the latest build image uploaded to the image management system. The boot image is used to upgrade the device when the CSO starts the ZTP process.
