Hi Bob,  

I went through the FAQ but I am a little confused. 


The X5 series getting EOL is the same 1405, 1415, 1425 appliances? Does the "X5" means 14X5?

We do have IB-1425 appliances, however in the list of affected SKU's there is no "IB" appliances.  Here is the list:

Is it TE-1425 the same as IB-1425? What is the difference between TE and IB? 

Sorry for the silly questions, I just could not find the answer on my own.
