Beginning with SBC Core release 7.0, the SBC is configured in legacy license mode by default. The “local” and “network” options for license mode that were supported for SBC SWe in prior releases are being phased out. Options to change license mode through the CLI or EMA are no longer available as of release 7.0. Although some references to local license mode remain in documentation, the CLI, or the EMA UI, local license mode is not supported.

If your SBC SWe deployment was configured to use network license mode in a prior release, the tools to monitor and configure network-mode licensing remain available in release 7.0, but will be phased out in the future. Information needed to maintain network license mode is still provided. Contact your Ribbon Sales Representative for more information and assistance in updating your license.

The Live Monitor tracks and monitors the licenses that are used in the SBC. It is embedded in EMA to provide the usage/metrics, which improves the visibility.


  • Live Monitor does not display licensing metrics in legacy mode.
  • In network wide license mode, the available license limit changes dynamically as licenses are retrieved and returned to the site license server.

To access the Live Monitor option:

  1. Log on to EMA.
  2. Navigate to Monitoring > Dashboard > Live Monitor.


    If you are accessing Live Monitor option for the first time, you must click Enable.
