When upgrading for Skype for Business or Windows OS, license labels are included with Upgrade/Downgrade packs from Sonus. When you receive a label with a purchased license, you attach it to the Sonus 1000/2000 unit to signify that the license has been installed on the system.

For detailed information about upgrading/downgrading your system, see

Labels are provided with the purchase of the following licenses:

  • Lync 2010 SBA
  • Lync 2013 SBA

Attach the label to the SBC 1000/2000 as follows:
