Firmware Updates

From time to time satellite phone manufacture’s & carriers come out with updates to their devices. These updates are called firmware updates since they change the devices core functioning software. The updates can do anything from fix bugs found in the previous firmware release(s) to adding new features & tools.

One thought on “Firmware Updates

  1. For Thrane & Thrane Fleetbroadband and BGAN terminals, firmware version 1.16 will be feature critical by June 1, 2013. Any T&T terminal not updated by then will not be able to receive calls to a connected IP Handset until the terminal is updated to the firmware.
