For IDP software products, 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.

Update releases (e.g. service, maintenance, patch) will no longer be created for major software releases after the end of engineering (EOE) date. IDP attack object (signature) updates will be provided until EOS.

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. IDP attack object (signature) updates will be provided until EOS is reached.

Prior to IDP 2.1, EOE and EOS dates were the same, Juniper provided engineering support until EOS was reached and provided more than the up to eighteen (18) months of support noted above.

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.
