1.        Introduction

1.1.           Document Scope

The scope of this document is the Firmware 7.52 release description for the AirPrimes listed in the compatibility section.

Firmware 7.52 is a maintenance release based on Firmware 7.50.0.A1 (for AirPrime SL808xT) and Firmware 7.51 (for AirPrime SL6087, Q2686 and Q2687).

1.2.           Document Audience

This release note may be distributed to all direct and indirect customers and will be posted in Sierra Wireless Developer Zone

1.3.           New Features/Enhancements

Table 1.       New Features/Enhancements for AirPrime SL808xT

Feature

Description

AirVantage Management Services

SL808xT now fully support firmware and application update by delta mechanism from the AirVantage Management Services server in addition to the monitoring and remote debugging capability

Circuit Switched Data

SL808xT is able to perform CSD call to send data.

Table 2.       New Features/Enhancements for AirPrime SL808xT in beta stage, not to be used for mass production

Feature

Description

GPIO extension (beta)

Some SL8 PIN are being multiplexed with GPIO features in order to enhance GPIO numbers. The GPIO pins introduced are GPIO12-GPIO19.

Hidden Storage (beta)

Some APIs have been implemented in order to Write/Read Certificates and Keys as files to/from SL8 file system.

Supplementary services (beta)

Support of Voice Mail Indicator and Call barring supplementary services have been added on SL8.

+WPOW(beta)

Allows to speed up RF testing on SL8 at manufacturing. A continuous signal is supplied from the MS with a constant power level on a given channel. So, a GSM tester is able to measure transmitted signal level.

 


 

Table 3.       New Features/Enhancements for AirPrime SL6087, Q2686 and Q2687

Feature

Description

Remote Debugging

Ability to securely connect to an AirPrime module to manage a trace session in order to remotely analyze the traces.

Default APN for Management Services

Customer can disable the default usage of the standard APN if no APN are populated for AirVantage management Services.
