Why it is important to upgrade firmware?

When installing network equipment, avoiding errors and faults is the first priority. However, problem situations can occur unexpectedly. For example, after trying to install a brand new SFP transceiver, the router does not recognize it correctly or leads it to malfunctioning or becoming dysfunctional. One solution of this problem is an upgrade of the firmware on your equipment on regular basis.


There are many reasons to frequently check for the newest upgrade on your network equipment. A newest firmware can allow the router or switch to support more optical transceiver modules, include new features and protect network from security vulnerabilities.
