ASA 5505 License and Smartnet selection

Answered Question
Jun 12th, 2012

Hi,

We purchased an ASA 5505 (ASA5505-BUN-K9) and more recently purchased the license to upgrade it from 10 to 50 users (L-ASA5505-10-50). 

I would like to provide remote access to users via AnyConnect - specifically, AnyConnnect on Windows plus the iPhone/iPad and Android versions.  My understanding is that I should purchase the Anyconnect Essentials (L-ASA-AC-E-5505) and Anyconnect Mobile (L-ASA-AC-M-5505) licenses.  Is this correct?  If I do this, how many simultaneous remote access VPN connections (via Anyconnect clients) will the ASA then support?

Further, we did not initially purchase Smartnet with this device, but I would like to do so to gain access to software updates.  Is there a site or document where I can locate the SKU #'s for Smartnet contracts that would be appropriate with our device?  Or could someone provide a few example SKU #'s?

The output of "show version" is below:

Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.3(1)
