Commercial wireless end user terminals are becoming increasingly complex in order to integrate in a common package distinct separate capabilities formerly implemented in multiple single-function, single-band devices. Software is an increasingly important aspect of these complex terminals. The increased amount of software installed in wireless devices includes both application software and operational software, such as radio software used to implement software-defined radio capabilities. A resulting need is to be able to upgrade these wireless devices through software download in order to incorporate new capabilities and fix software deficiencies.
