Can someone direct me to the part numbers for the support of the IPS module? Particularly, the software upgrades and signature upgrades?  Do I need a separate contract for the module itself or is that covered by the ASA contract?  thx atgain.

  The AIP-SSM requires a separate support contract from the host ASA.
