Software Lifecycle Management

Reliable planning for your network

Reliability and future-proofness – two vital elements for any administrator or controller when planning and setting-up a network. With LANCOM Systems you have a manufacturer at your side providing a matchless investment protection.

The LANCOM lifecycle policies (infopaper) provide full transparency and reliable planning with regard to the firmware updates and product support for your LANCOM infrastructure. As an aid to the strategic planning of your network, this website gives you an overview of our policies and the status of your devices.

Product status overview

The latestest software status for your LANCOM device

We have drawn up a number of tables to provide you an overview of our current and end-of-sale products. These comprise all of our products with their end-of-sale date, the firmware version they support, and information about the time frames concerning further feature updates and technical manufacturer support.


To the tables

At a glance

For a 2-year period, following the official announcement of a product's discontinuation by means of the LANCOM price list, the device is immediately subject to:

  • free updates to the operating system, including new features (major releases) and other updates with general improvements
  • critical security fixes based on the last applicable firmware version
  • free technical manufacturer support

We also offer you free manufacturer technical support and critical security updates within the warranty period of your device.

Devices without warranty may receive fee-based support in the third to fifth year after EOS.

Lifecycle Management

Our free operating systems LCOS, LCOS SX, LCOS LX, and LCOS FX are constantly undergoing further development. The following information explains our notation of the development status and version names.



Release Candidate (RC)

A Release Candidate has been extensively tested by LANCOM and includes new LCOS features. It is suitable for testing and is not recommended for use in productive environments.


Release-Version (REL)

The release has been extensively and successfully tested in practice. It contains new features and improvements over previous LANCOM operating system versions. Recommended for use in productive environments.


Release Update (RU)

This is a further development of an initial release version and contains minor improvements, bug fixes and smaller features.



Security Update (SU)

Contains important security fixes for the respective LANCOM operating system version and ensures that your security level remains very high on an ongoing basis.

Extended warranty

LANCOM Warranty Options

LANCOM offers two warranty options allowing you to extend the warranty on your LANCOM products from 3 to 5 years. With the LANCOM Warranty Advanced Option you have the additional assurance that an advance replacement device is delivered by the next business day (applies for metropolitan areas within the EU (excluding islands)). This way, your critical network components are perfectly secured.

What's more: If the device has still a valid warranty, you automatically receive free technical manufacturer support – even longer than two years after the End of Sale date. Regardless of the operating time of the device, you also benefit from security updates even after the official product discontinuation by LANCOM for a further five years - that means until the End of Life status of the device.
