Re: FW Upgrade Questions

We upgrade within the same branch (e.g. 5.6.3 to 5.6.13 following the upgrade path) based on vulnerabilities and bug fixes for issues affecting our customers. We do this often and generally try to avoid getting more than one step behind in the upgrade path (within that branch). We test new releases internally or on test bench devices before customer equipment and generally try to keep every device on the same branch and release that is most stable for us (currently 6.0.10).
We upgrade from one branch to the next branch up (e.g. 5.6.x to 6.0.x) only when that branch reaches at least the 4th patch release and the new features are well established and we have a business case to put them to use.
