Network Protocols and Ports used by Bose Portable Smart Speaker

Bose Product Name

Bose Portable Smart Speaker

Bose Music

 

Firmware Version and App version

Bose Portable Smart Speaker - Unknown

Bose Music - 4.5.4

 

Description

Hello,

 

I would like to enquire if any members/staff can provide me with information regarding the network protocols and port used by the Bose Portable Smart Speaker (BPSS)? I have searched for the information on Google and the forum, but I only found it for the old Soundtouch devices.

 

https://community.bose.com/t5/SoundTouch-Archive/Soundtouch-Update-Protocols-and-Ports/td-p/98155

 

I need the information for allowing the device to be discovered and accessed by the Bose Music app across VLANs on my corporate firewall. While the network port information for the Soundtouch speaker is helpful, I do not want to open unnecessary ports that the BPSS does not use.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

Steven
