Thuraya IP+ Upgrader

The latest Thuraya IP+ software version is Release

Release date: September 2016


Thuraya is pleased to announce the release of software version for the Thuraya IP+ terminal. This release improves the overall stability and use experience of the Thuraya IP+ terminals. Most of the issues fixed by this release have affected multiple prior releases, so this release may help resolve old issues for users. 

New Features/Enhancements:

Internet Access Interruptions

In some cases, especially under heavy load, the terminal could experience an interruption in internet access.  Some of these interruptions are short, but others could persist for minutes, or even until the terminal is rebooted.  These issues arose from interactions between multiple factors including heavy load, transitions due to uplink or downlink inactivity, temporary errors from the gateway, and changing the QoS.  Multiple root causes were identified, and they are resolved in this release.

Unintended Terminal Reboot

There were a few scenarios where the terminal would unexpectedly reboot, interrupting the connection.  These problems typically occurred under extremely heavy load, while others were sporadic.  Like the internet access interruptions above, multiple root causes were identified, and resolved in this release.

BCOM WLAN Recovery

The BCOM WLAN Modules, which are now used on new boards, exhibited some problems not seen on previous boards.  WLAN Clients would remain connected to the UT, but access to the WebMMI or the internet would not be possible.  This may last only a few minutes, or could persist until the terminal is rebooted.  This would most often happen during heavy load over WLAN.  It is caused by internal communication between the WLAN Module and the modem becoming stuck.  This release implements a way to detect this condition, as well as a fast recovery for it.  In many cases, this detection and recovery hides the error from the PC and applications communicating over the spacelink.
