F5 Networks® will support the listed operating systems and browser releases, with the latest service pack or service pack equivalent for up to 3 years from time of initial release, as long as the listed operating systems and browsers are still supported by the vendor. If an operating system or browser vendor ends mainstream support before the end of that 3 year period for a release or service pack, F5 Networks® will also end support at the same time. Once an operating system or browser has surpassed the 3 year date from release, F5 Networks® will continually monitor the user base of this operating systems or browser release. When a release reaches a usage level that cannot justify development, test, and support resources, we will issue an EoL (End of Life) Solution announcing EoL plans at least three months prior to the planned EoDS (End of Development Support).
Important: This policy only applies to the BIG-IP end-user interfaces, and not the administrative web console for BIG-IP, or any other F5 product.
