Expansion I/O module for my firewall

Hi I have a question.

I need to purchase an Expansion I/O module for my firewall.

So My company is adding one more ISP to the network.(There is already one ISP existing as outside interface). There is only one unused interface in the firewall. And I need to make one more connection(Port channel) going to the Core switch. So I need a total of 3 unused interfaces on the firewall. So i figured i need an expansion io module. Do I need to order 2 modules, for primary and secondary or just one. and is there any other items i need to purchase like power cable or something for expansion purpose.

So do I purchase two of them, for primary and secondary?

it all depends in the requirement, if this is HA, i suggest having 2 for both ASA.

 

as suggested official EOS, but you may some body has excess stock for your rquirement.

Have you looked into doing sub-interfaces? How much is the total throughput between the two circuits?
