Buying new ASA 5510.

Hello,

I'm looking into buying ASA 5510 with base license. I currently have one in production, but will be migrating to new ISP (symmetrical 100Mb) and need to do it without downtime. My production ASA is running 8.2(1)11 code with base license and additional Anyconnect Essentials/Anyconnect for Mobile licenses. What ver of IOS would you recommend for new ASA and why? Also I read that Anyconnect licenses are transferable, is it correct?

Thank  you,

forman

It always good to go for newer version since that comes with new features and very less known bugs.Using old version you might miss very usefull enhanced feature.

So far license is concern depends upon your requirement.

Not sure if licenses are transferable.

Thanks

8,4(3) is the latest, released just this week. I haven't heard it from Cisco, but I'd suspect it is a very stable code release as it has very few new features and a longer list of resolved caveats - see the link Ajay posted. (8.5 is for ASA Service Module).

Feature licenses (including AnyConnect) can be shared between members of an HA pair in 8.3 or later. Previously, they were limited to the serial number of your original device and generally not transferrable. Again, the link above provides more details.
