    Security Analytics Hardware Gen 5 lifecycle was three years from original purchase. Extended support beyond the original EOL was often provided, but is no longer available; all Gen 5 systems are far beyond EOL. For J5300 systems, the general EOL period was five years. These devices are compatible with Hardware Gen 5 and Gen 6 systems, and generally the driving factor when considering EOL is the server to which they are attached. Meaning, even if they haven't reached EOL, since they aren't compatible with Hardware Gen 7 or Gen 8, it doesn't really matter.

    I'd suggest getting in touch with a Broadcom IMS Solution Engineer for assistance with your particular situation. They can help look up the terms for your specific serial number.

    You should be able to access the EOL document at "SA EOL"

    Please contact me directly if you have any more questions.
