Feature roadmap/Faster imaging
|Feature subcategory||Category:Security, activation and deployability|
|Requesters||Ethiopia, Rwanda, Haiti|
|Requirements|| This feature request is needed to minimize the time to install a custom image over a wireless or wired network. It will be used when an XO comes from the factory with an older release. The deployment then needs to upgrade to the latest release and possibly install some customizations (e.g. content, language pack, activities, see also separate customization requirement below). The solution must be faster than imaging via USB sticks for imaging more than 1,000 XOs. Must allow install of new image via wireless or wired network. Possibly sub-variants of in school case for Mesh, Wireless AP, XS.
Workflow example for the network case above:
|Specification|| See also: Multicast NAND FLASH Update|
Some open issues to be addressed by the design proposal:
limit it to set # of XOs at a time? Can we scale it by using more "channels" or more APs?
