The F5 hardware/software compatibility matrix

Updated Date: Apr 24, 2019

The tables in this article list the product software versions and the latest Switch Card Control Processor (SCCP), Always-On Management (AOM), and End-User Diagnostics (EUD) versions supported by F5 hardware platforms. The table headings are described as follows:

Note: Unless otherwise noted, platform variations not listed have the same supported software/firmware version range as the parent platform. If the platform is listed, it has a different supported software range than its parent platform.

  • Platform: F5 platform marketing name
  • Type: F5 platform ID
  • Compatible software versions: BIG-IP software versions supported by the platform (oldest through newest). The software versions include their respective hotfixes and point releases, unless otherwise stated. For example, the Compatible software versions column for BIG-IP i2600 lists 12.1.1 HF2 - 12.1.3 for the BIG-IP 12.x branch, which means that BIG-IP 12.1.1 HF2, BIG-IP 12.1.2 through 12.1.2 HF2, and BIG-IP 12.1.3 through 12.1.3.5 (as of July 18, 2018) are supported by BIG-IP i2600. 
  • Lifecycle note: Information regarding any support lifecycle milestones that the platform has reached, such as End of New Software Support (EoNSS) or End of Software Development (EoSD), that affect the software versions supported by the platform.
  • SCCP: The latest version of SCCP firmware supported by the platform
  • AOM: The latest version of AOM firmware supported by the platform
  • EUD: The latest version of EUD supported by the platform

    Note: In BIG-IP 13.0.0 and later, F5 no longer includes the EUD images in the base .iso image file. You must either install the latest EUD package from a BIG-IP-x.y.z.n.n.nnn-RECOVERY.iso image or download the EUD image of your specific platform from the Platform / EUD product page of the F5 Downloads site. For more information, refer to K03203114: Multiple BIG-IP iso images are available (13.x - 14.x).
