You can install the Junos Continuity software package as a standalone package or as a package bundled with Junos OS.
- Install the Standalone Junos Continuity Plug-in—You install the Standalone Junos Continuity Plug-in if the version of Junos OS that is installed on the router supports Junos Continuity software. For example, if the router is running Junos OS Release 15.1F4, you can directly the install Standalone Junos Continuity Plug-in for Junos OS Release 15.1F4 and then bring the line cards online.
- Install the Junos Continuity Plug-in integrated with Junos OS—You use the integrated package if the version of Junos OS that is installed on the router does not support Junos Continuity software. For example, if you want to install Junos Continuity software on Junos OS Release 13.3, you can use the integrated package that contains both Junos OS Release 15.1F4 and the Junos Continuity Plug-in. This is a one-step process to upgrade the Junos OS to Junos OS Release 15.1F4 and also to install Junos Continuity software.
