For NetGuardian 832A G4 users looking at substantial new deployments, you might want to consider migrating to the new G5 platform. This enhanced RTU gives you the same alarm capacity as the G4, but with many new capabilities. including increased processor speed (for a faster web interface), advanced hardware (more memory for features), and enhanced security options (like SNMPv3, hardware acceleration, and RADIUS authentication).
The G4 firmware is now in maintenance-only mode, whereas the G5 is actively being developed. This opens the door for many new features down the road. Also, since the G5 is newer, it will also feature a longer product life.
