E-series Firmware version explanation

Is there any reason behind the lengthy E-series Firmware version like - 8.25.14.00 ( with Four octet) , first octet can be assumed as Major version, next one can be classified as a minor release or patch.However , why do we need to have such a long version .

Hi there!

 

The first two octets are the important ones - major and minor version.

 

The E-Series product line has a long history of OEM usage - so we make software and hardware for others to resell, based on the E-Series platform, but with different branding. This flows on into documentation, software, user interface, hardware, etc.

 

Usage varies based on what part of E-Series is being discussed, but generally the third octet is based on which company it is branded for, and the 4th one is a build number.

Re: E-series Firmware version explanation

is there any references for the company id in "third octet" . ?
