Subject:  General Availability Announcement for Datacom Level Set 15.1.01 PTFs 


On behalf of Broadcom, we appreciate your business and the opportunity to provide you with high-quality, innovative software and services.  As part of our ongoing commitment to customer success, we regularly release updated versions of our products. Today, we are pleased to announce that Datacom 15.1 Level Set 15.1.01 PTFs are now available. 

As part of our Continuous Delivery maintenance strategy, Broadcom provides a Level Set PTF that helps you identify your current level of maintenance and features that have been installed. The Level Set PTF includes a requisite list of all published PTFs in the release stream and supersedes previous Level Set PTFs, ensuring that your product is current with maintenance. You can download the Level Set PTFs from Broadcom Support just like any other PTF.

The Level Set PTF:

  • Makes it easier to determine the current maintenance level for your products or minimum level of maintenance that has been applied for your products, separate from SMP/E reporting.
  • Provides an easy method to receive and apply all maintenance up to a specific modification level. You can use this information to determine the last modification level that was installed. Note that additional maintenance may have been installed on top of the modification level.
  • Helps you to understand what features are installed and available for use at your site.


Note: The Level Set PTF may not include all available maintenance. Additional maintenance may have been published after the Level Set PTF is published. This maintenance would be included in the next Level Set PTF. We recommend that you use CARS to implement a preventive maintenance strategy at your site. For more information about CARS, see CARS.


Since this is the first collection of level sets for the Datacom product family, it includes more than 500 PTFs. Future Level Sets will be smaller. We will determine the cadence of Level Set PTFs based on the volume of maintenance and other factors.

Datacom Products included:

  • Datacom/DB Core Level Set 15.1.01 (LU08365)
  • Datacom CICS Services Level Set 15.1.01 (LU08322)
  • Ideal for Datacom Level Set 15.1.01 (LU08347)
  • IPC Level Set 15.1.01 (LU08360)

Note: A Level Set for Datacom Server is postponed to a future date.


The modification level is displayed in various messages and panels with the version string to help you better understand what maintenance has been applied at your site. For example, startup message: “DB00215I – CA Datacom/DB Version 15.1.01”. For questions, please reach out to the Datacom Product Team, or email
