Cisco Software Licensing

The Cisco UC500 Series platforms support CSL so that the platforms can be upgraded or downgraded in the field. A system with 8 users can be upgraded to a 16-userlicense. A system with 32 users can be upgraded to a48-userlicense. The number of users can also be downgraded.

IP phones are registered, based on the availability of a license for each phone. The system reloads when a system license is downgraded due to license expiration or by configuration by the user, and when the number of registered phones exceeds the user license count.

The following software licensing features have been implemented:

The software supports evaluation, extension, permanent, and grace-periodlicenses.

The licensing infrastructure manages the installation and expiration events.

To see license information, use the show license, show platform software license, and show versionCisco IOS Command Line Interface (CLI) commands.

To upgrade the UC 500 systems, use the license featureuc500-16u-upgradeand license featureuc500-48u-upgradeCisco IOS CLI commands. To downgrade the licensed configuration, use the noversions of these commands.

To install extension licenses and permanent licenses, use the license install flash:<license_filename> Cisco IOS CLI command.

Obtaining a License

Follow these steps to obtain a license:

Step 1 Purchase a PAK for the desired type of license.

PAKs are purchasable items, ordered in the same manner as other Cisco equipment. PAKs are used to obtain license files for feature sets on specific classes of Cisco devices.

Step 2 From the License Management window of CCA, get the device ID number (UDI) for your router.
