I'm imvestigating about a Sonicwall UMT appliance, I'm intersted in the TZ215 Wireless but I just read that model is in LTB (Last Time Buy) phase.

Does anybody knows how many years could this mean until the end of life? I just want to be sure if worth it.

Thanks in advance for your help.

This question probably isn't best on ServerFault but with your vendor. They have a much better idea of how often the products are removed and are often told when to stop selling them. – Brent Pabst Aug 10 '12 at 16:25

It's pretty clear from the description that the LTB cycle is variable, dependent on multiple factors and completely at the discretion of SonicWall, so I don't see how anyone here can give you a definitive answer.

Last Time Buy (LTB)

Last Time Buy (LTB) is advanced notification to SonicWALL customers and partners that SonicWALL intends to start the end of life process. The duration of this phase is variable and depends on numerous factors including material availability, SonicWALL and channel inventory and end-user demand. Last Time Buy is informational only. Products in this phase are active.
