NetOps Modules are not tightly coupled to Lighthouse software or OM node firmware – modules may be installed and upgraded independently of the base system.
The Opengear development team ships the latest NetOps modules to a private repository on Docker Hub (docker.io/opengear).
Lighthouse runs its own Docker registry that may be synchronized with the upstream Docker Hub under SETTINGS > Services > NetOps Modules. Lighthouse systems without access to the external Docker Hub server may be updated using an offline installer.
When a module is activated on a node, the node pulls the containers for that module from the Lighthouse registry, securely over Lighthouse VPN.
Additionally, with each Lighthouse release from 5.2.2 onwards, a snapshot of the latest modules at release time preloaded into a Lighthouse registry, and shipped on a secondary virtual disk.
