What new device should I replace my EoL AS5300 with?

Unanswered Question

I'm looking to replace an old AS5300 with one of the new AS5350 Universal Gateways, but I don't know which one will provide me with the same functionality. The show ver output just says it's an AS5300, not which model (see below).

It has 4 E1 ports and, I believe, 60 MICA modems. Which AS5350 should I purchase?

Thanks in advance.

I have this problem too.

Thanks, but I'm not sure which model I should be buying. The EoL notice has many different models of old AS5300 and the recommended replacement for each, but I'm not sure which one I've got.

I agree with Sundar that the 5350XM is the replacement that you should look at. Perhaps if you post the link to the EoL notice that you mention we could look at it and do a better job of interpreting it for you.
