I want to purchase a ASA 5506 x specially to consider potential future certifications like the CCNP Security track. However, I am still confused which model I should buy.
The licence model of cisco tells me not much ....I guess, for the ccna sec track it is enough with out the sec+ license and later on at ccnp I need all the $$$ licenses and even a 2nd firewall ???
My lab setup consists of 6 L3 switches, 2 L2 switches and 4 routers with IOS 15.x and some hwics and wic for serial connections.
