Hi Jeremy,

It looks like 6/30/2015 & 6/30/2020 respectively.

Actually there is no EOS Date fixed for the B5. 

Extreme Networks communicates product End of Sale through this webpage. Extreme Networks strives to notify customers 6 months in advance, when possible, through this online mechanism.

So usually it shouldn't be end of June. But to be honest. I would move any decision to a Summit X450, since this is a platform of future,

That's actually a good point, Andre. Upon closer inspection, it appears that that item is only for bundles of the B5, not the B5 itself. Apologies for any confusion.
