The effectiveness of any workaround or fix is dependent on specific
customer situations, such as product mix, network topology, traffic
behavior, and organizational mission. Due to the variety of affected

provider or support organization to ensure any applied workaround or fix
is the most appropriate for use in the intended network before it is
deployed.
