Re: Cat6006 Software Upgrade

technically, you can always upgrade your software for your cisco devices if you have a software support maintenance contract. (this allows you to actually download the software from cisco and licenses you to use it)

the versions available for the Cat6006 are:

5.5(x)

6.1(x)

6.2(x)

6.3(x)

6.4(x)

7.1(x)

7.2(x)

7.3(x)

7.4(x)

8.1(x)

8.2(x)

Re: Cat6006 Software Upgrade

Ed:

Those situations may need a code upgrade:

bug fix;

new functions on the modules;

Cisco recommendations.

You can check out Cisco "Software download" web site to find out right release for your modules.

Licensing is more company specific. I think you need to renew it before the current contract expires. Otherwise you won't be able to download any software.
