For all IVE OS products released after July 15, 2008 the software support policy has been revised. For IVE OS software products released after July 15, 2008, the period of active engineering support will be the current release plus two (2) subsequent releases, or up to eighteen (18) months from the FRS date, whichever occurs first. All software releases are considered major.
For IVE OS software products released prior to July 15, 2008 and after November 1, 2005, the period of active engineering support will be the current release plus three (3) subsequent releases, or up to eighteen (18) months from the FRS date, whichever occurs first. All software releases are considered major. Products release between November 1, 2005 and July 15, 2008 will remain on the above stated support timeline.
Prior to November of 2005, Juniper provided up to eighteen (18) months of EOE support after FRS date for IVE OS software. Products released prior to November 1, 2005 will remain on the original support timeline, receiving a minimum of up to eighteen (18) months of EOE support.
Update releases (e.g. service, maintenance, patch) will no longer be created for major software releases after the end of engineering (EOE) date.
JTAC support will continue after EOE for two (2) subsequent releases or up to twelve (12) months, whichever occurs first. After EOE and until EOS JTAC support will be generally limited to investigation and troubleshooting in an attempt to provide solutions and workarounds.
When the release reaches EOS the software images are removed from www.juniper.net and JTAC will only provide support on a commercially reasonable effort basis.
