Firmware upgrades

From time to time, it may be necessary to upgrade your satellite phone or terminal’s firmware in order to improve its functionality and operation.

On this page you will find all details about firmware upgrades from Inmarsat and Iridium, which can affect future operation of all satellite phones or satellite terminal hardware supplied worldwide. Updates can include recommended firmware upgrades which are optional and can introduce new features, but there are also mandatory updates which require urgent action within a strict timeline to avoid the phone becoming non-operational.

At Satcom Global, we have a passion for creating the best customer experience. We want our customers to get the most out of their satellite solutions, so we recommend that as soon as the latest firmware version is released, users download and upgrade their firmware at the earliest opportunity.

Please click on the Inmarsat or Iridium support pages and you will be directed to the link to easily upgrade your firmware, and if you have any issues please do not hesitate to contact our team in Oceania for additional assistance.
