The main option is to run pure releases, i.e. both RNC and RBS on same release.
Compatibility and support for nodes running on software which differ by up to two releases are only Exemption needed when
provided with the intention to be used during short upgrade periods during roll out projects. not upgrading to latest release
Observe that only limited maintenance is provided for these odd combinations.

RNS with RNc 3810

› Last supported SW for RNC 3810 nodes is W14B

› Clarification regarding SW support in RNS’s with RNC 3810:


– SW releases beyond W14B is not supported in any node that is part of an
RNC 3810 RNS.
– i.e. upgrade of RBS’s belonging to a RNC 3810 to W15A or later is not
supported.

– Please note:
It will not even be possible to load W15A or later SW on a RNC 3810.
