Serial Data Communications with the GSP-1700 (TB-06-03)
This topic is discussed in full in Technical Bulletin TB-06-03.
For convenience, the content of the Technical Bulletin is repeated below.
This technical bulletin applies to the Globalstar GSP-1700 phone.
The first generation of Globalstar phones (GSP-1600, GSP-2900, GSP-1620 and GCK-1410) uses a serial port for all data communications. The GSP-1700 phone has been designed for USB communications in order to simplify connectivity to modern laptops and other devices.
We have tested several adapter cables which convert the USB of the phone to a serial port for a connected device. The serial data adapter is scheduled for 1-Feb-2007 availability. Once the product has been released, an announcement regarding availability will be provided.
If you have a customer who needs to communicate with the GSP-1700 using a serial port, please contact your Globalstar sales office.
