End of 5.1(x) signature support

Unanswered Question
Jan 28th, 2008

I'm planning my 5.x to 6.0 migrations for the year and was looking for any official Cisco statements on the End of Life/End of Sale for 5.1(x) without success. How much longer can we expect to receive 5.x signature support?

I have this problem too.

Cisco has not yet announced an End of Life or End of Sale (EOL/EOS) dates for 5.1(x).

What this means is that End of Signature support is longer than a year away.

End of signature support will be at least a year after Cisco announces EOL/EOS.

So you still have at least 1 year and possibly longer before you are forced to upgrade to 6.x for signature updates.

Thanks, we were wondering about this also. I hate being forced to upgrade just because Cisco has something "new & OMG magically better".
