License Model

Certainly! Cisco offers various licensing models to meet the needs of different customers and to provide flexibility in managing software licenses. Here’s a brief description of each:

Classic License

  • In the classic licensing model, licenses are tied to specific hardware serial numbers or device identifiers.
  • This model typically requires manual management of licenses, including tracking, installation, and renewal.
  • Licenses are perpetual, meaning they don't expire, but may require renewal for access to updates and support.

Smart License

  • Smart Licensing is Cisco's newer approach to software licensing, offering more flexibility and automation.
  • Licenses are centrally managed through Cisco's Smart Software Manager (SSM), providing a cloud-base d portal for license management.
  • Devices communicate with the Smart Software Manager to activate and validate licenses, enabling easier tracking and management of licenses across the network.

SLR License (Smart License Reservation)

  • SLR is a feature of Smart Licensing that allows customers to reserve licenses for specific devices or usage scenarios.
  • It provides flexibility in allocating licenses where they are needed most, ensuring critical services have access to the required licenses.
  • SLR helps optimize license utilization and ensures compliance with licensing agreements.

SLP License (Smart License Pooling)

  • SLP is another feature of Smart Licensing designed to enhance license flexibility and resource allocation.
  • It allows organizations to pool licenses across multiple devices or locations, optimizing license usage and reducing the need for over-provisioning.
  • SLP simplifies license management by enabling licenses to be shared dynamically based on demand.

PLR License (Permanent License Reservation)

  • PLR is a feature within Smart Licensing that allows customers to reserve licenses permanently for specific devices.
  • It ensures that critical devices always have access to the necessary licenses, even during periods of high demand or when network connectivity to the Smart Software Manager is interrupted.
  • PLR provides added assurance for essential services and helps maintain continuous operation without relying on real-time communication with the license server.

Each of these licensing models offers distinct advantages, and the choice between them depends on factors such as the organization’s preferences, requirements, and existing infrastructure.
