This page provides a snapshot of the supported release versions of each Ribbon device that can interoperate with the Insight EMS as of the GA (General Availability) date.
Ribbon supports the latest major release and up to two major releases immediately preceding the latest release (N-2) of the interoperable devices.
- To upgrade from an unsupported release (older than N-2), talk to your account team/channel partner about Ribbon’s Upgrade Assurance program.
- To upgrade to a sustaining release, talk to your account team/channel partner.
The interoperability tables are intended to list supported releases, not necessarily tested releases. For explicitly-tested product versions, refer to the product release notes or contact your account team/PLM, as applicable.
In the table(s) below, a snapshot of two supported Ribbon product releases (labeled as Latest and Minimum) for each product that interoperates with this product at the time of GA for this product.
- Latest release indicates the latest supported product release version to upgrade to for the latest features and functionality of the interoperable product.
- Minimum release indicates the minimum supported product release version (N-2 or newer).
The example below demonstrates choosing an upgrade strategy for STI, EMS and PSX:
When planning to upgrade to STI release 21.04.00R000, also upgrade to the latest PSX 13.02.01R000 and EMS 13.02.02R000 releases to ensure full new feature functionality introduced in STI release 21.04.00R000.

Insight EMS Interoperability Matrix (Group 2)
Insight EMS releases are not forward compatible with DSI, GSX, and PSX releases.
For example, Insight 13.2.0R0 can manage PSX 13.2.0R0 and earlier releases, but not PSX 9.1.0R0.
