Can my ASR 9000 upgrade to 4.3.4 to support MPLS?

Hi All,

 

I have an ASR 9000, but it doesn't support MPLS. The current release is 4.2.1, and if is it possible for me to upgrade it to 4.3.4? When I login with my CCO account, I found the software is 4.3.4(MD), and why it has an MD?

 

Thanks,

Mei

Keep in mind that the last day for 4.3.4 support is April 30, 2020 which is fast approaching. Considering you're on 4.2 I assuming that isn't a big problem for you now but it is still something to consider.
