A licensable flag determines whether premium features are available. Until the flag is set to true (enabled), the following premium features will be unavailable:
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 SBC Edge system.
The SBC Edge is delivered with standard functions. For additional SBC Edge features and suplementary services (which are not available as standard functions of the SBC Edge), you must obtain software licenses 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 Edge (Refer to Installing Licenses). This process also applies to license upgrades/expansions.
For details on how to obtain a license, refer to Sonus SBC 1000-2000 Download Center.
