I am using three PIX 506E 6.3 in main office & outside shops, and want to purchase two ASA5505 for our new shop.
I find "Cisco ASA 5500 Series 8.0" in the Cisco->Security and VPN Product page, but can't find any other information about this new ASA 8.0.
I want to know when will Cisco release the ASA 5505 8.0? If I buy two ASA 5505 now, but the version is 7.1 or 7.2, can I free upgrade to the ASA 8.0 when it is release? And does the ASA 5505 8.0 support connect VPN to the old PIX 506E?
The hardware of the PIX 506E is Intel Celeron 300MHz CPU and 32MB PC-133 SDRAM, does the new ASA 5505 also using the Intel Celeron CPU and PC-133 SDRAM? Or the ASA 5505 has been upgraded to the new Intel P4 CPU and DDR RAM? How fast is the CPU Speed?
