Prior to Release to 4.1.1, Sonus as a courtesy in limited situations, installed supplementary licenses on the customer's behalf. This practice ended in May 2015.

This section describes the licensing process on the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system. 

The Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system is delivered with standard functions. For additional SBC features and supplementary services (which are not available as standard functions of the Sonus SBC 1000/2000 system), you must obtain software license keys purchased from Sonus. Once obtained, you receive instructions for accessing the licensing portal.  Through the portal, you enter the SBC serial number and generate a license, which you then install on the SBC (see Installing Licenses). This process also applies to license upgrades/expansions.

For details on how to obtain a license, see Sonus SBC 1000-2000 Download Center.

Feature/Supplementary Services Licenses - Available License Types

An SBC 1000 Module or SBC 2000 line card requires a license to enable ports for use on the node.
