AVM stays on the ball and releases another beta version of the FritzOS operating system for the Fritzbox 6890 LTE to the public. The FritzOS version 07.51-107241 seems worth reporting because it is a release candidate for the expected FritzOS 7.56.
According to the package insert, a handful of bugs have been fixed, here are the most important ones: The IPv6 behavior has been optimized for the parallel and fallback configuration (however, AVM does not give any details). With the mobile radio uplink, the WAN IP address is now displayed and a permanently configured IPv6 address is adopted (this did not work before). With exclusive IPv6 communication via mobile radio, there was no option for either Release 8 or Release 10; that’s built in now. In the telephony area, the registration of Internet phone numbers failed in certain constellations and some notifications for fallback or mobile phone events were optimized.
Features released to try
The new functions expected with FritzOS 7.56 include a new energy saving mode, improved switching to other Fritzbox models using a new assistant, spoken caller announcement, Fritzbox as a mesh repeater and improvements in the smart home area. In the laboratory version 7.51-107241 these features are implemented and released for testing; it is available for download on AVM’s laboratory website. For use in productive environments, however, it is recommended, as always, to wait for release version 7.56.
Fritzbox 6890 LTE in fallback readiness: The cellular connection is established, but data only flows over it to the Internet if the main line fails.
AVM has given the 6890 LTE model a cellular modem in addition to the DSL modem. With an inserted SIM card and the appropriate configuration, for example, it can automatically establish the Internet connection via mobile phone access if the main DSL line fails (fallback). Since FritzOS 7.51, you can pin down individual network devices to the mobile or DSL/WAN connection, and only allow the most important devices to communicate via mobile to save transmission volume. The 6890 LTE also appears interesting because, in the event of a disaster, it receives warning messages sent via cell broadcast and immediately forwards them to users via apps, e-mail and other channels.
