A new firmware release for the Iridium GO!® is now available, which allows Iridium Short Burst DataSM (SBD) to be supported. With the core component of the Iridium GO! being the Iridium Core 9523 Transceiver, Iridium GO! has always been capable of supporting Iridium Short Burst Data. This new release enables the Iridium GO! to be provisioned to send/receive short bursts of data via SBD; effectively extending the Short Burst Data capability to smart devices through third party applications, which are custom built with the Iridium GO! SBD API.
Please note, that while the Iridium GO! supports multiple Circuit Switched Data (CSD) applications, when utilizing SBD, only one SBD application is allowed due to the provisioning and API design.
