Siemens S685IP Software Update

I must admit that in the chaos around my office lately I’ve had the Siemens S685IP DECT system powered off.  Today I took some time to get the base installed where I really want it, which is way up high along with the antenna from the Portech GSM gateway. When I powered it back up the handset reported that there was a new firmware update.

New firmware is always such a risk. The update might install and you never know the difference. or it could brick the device. These Siemens folks seem smart, so I logged into the web GUI and let the firmware update proceed. In about 90 seconds it was rebooted and back to functional.

Here are a couple of screen shots for sake of illustration.
