Uploading a Device Image

On the Images page, you can upload image files for CPE and VNF devices. You can also add some metadata about the device image file that you upload to the device.


The image being uploaded must use the same image name as the published image. Image upgrade might fail if the image name and details are changed.

To upload a device image for the device:

  1. Click Resources > Images.

    The Images page appears.

  2. Click the add icon (+).

    The Upload Image page appears.

  3. Enter the required details in the fields on the Upload Image page. See the field descriptions in Table 1.
  4. Click Upload. If you want to discard the upload device image process, click Abort instead.

    The Upload Image page displays the progress of the image upload.

  5. Click OK to save the changes.

    You are returned to the Images page.
