The long awaited replacement for the 5506 model is finally here and is called the Firepower 1010, and can now be found on their web site. This model has been sorely needed.
There are a few other versions above this model- the 1120 and 1140, probably meant to replace the 5508 and 5516
Also, Cisco has announced the more powerful 41×5 series of FTD devices. These are needed to provided the capability to run more multi-instances, as well as run ASA and FTD instances together, that only the 9300’s could do starting with 6.4 code.
Based on the Data sheet shown above, and found on their web site, it does not appear that they are discontinuing the 41×0 series, at least not at this time.
Both new series seem to be missing a 50 type version. We’ll just have to wait and see if those show up eventually, or not.
Lastly, Cisco announced some new powerful SM modules for the 9300. For when you need that 1 TBPS threat inspection and you have a few million dollars sitting around…totally ordering this for my home office! Gofundme starts in 3, 2, 1…
