Re: Still no updates for in-contract non-EOL cisco devices
Okay, so take the 5506X (that I have), any updates now disable Firepower because it requires 8G memory. So a product that is quite some time away from being EOL can't be updated further without losing the main functionality you bought it for. You can't upgrade the ram, so you're stuck with it and any bugs/vulns.
So your argument of them pushing for a 5506X (with the only main benefit over the 5505 being Firepower) would have led down a similar path.
We've had so many issues with Firepower, and bugs/vulns, for kit that isn't cheap, it's no wonder they're rapidly losing market share.
