In-service processor upgrades are supported from the TCC+ card to the TCC2 card using either Release 4.0.x or 4.1.x as a transition software load. For installed systems operating on the original model TCC card, the required upgrade steps will be 1) transition from TCC card to TCC+ card using a 2.2.x or 2.3.x software release as a transition load then 2) transition from TCC+ card to TCC2 card using a 4.0.x or 4.1.x software release as the transition load. Processor upgrade procedures will be included in the Cisco ONS 15454 R4.0.0 user documentation, available at first customer shipment.
