Why is ORBI making FTP connections to 165.254.106.214 every hour on the hour?

Anyone shed some light as to why my orbi router is opening an FTP connection to 165.254.106.214 every hour?

 

A packet captured revelead some commans such as:

 

cwd sw-apps

cwd ready-genie-web

cwd orbi

 

then it quits. Is this some sort of automated firmware upgrade check or do I need to start blocking some ports from orbi going out?

Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Hello cerebral

 

Yes orbi does check the server for auto updates.
