A count based license can be dynamically floated and shared among the SBC in a network licensing mode. It also allows the enforcement of the number of sessions purchased in local and network licensing modes.
The SBC supports three license modes:
Legacy Mode: The Licenses are encoded to a unique SBC instance based on system information to a particular SBC and this is an xml-based SBC license model.
Legacy licensing mode is the default license mode on the SBC. Legacy licensing is currently the only option available for users deploying hardware SBCs. Local and Network license modes are currently limited to specific SBC deployments. For more information, contact the Sonus Technical Assistance Center (TAC).
Local Mode: The licenses are fixed to the SBC and cannot be shared by other devices in the network. Licenses are installed on SBC through EMA or a new CLI interface by applying an xml-based license bundle. The xml-based license adopts the new license format, which includes additional data such as purchase order information.
For more information on supported licenses, refer to SBC Core Licenses.
The SBC supports two types of license, instance and counted.
callCountIntervalStatistics table provides usage statistics for services enforced by a counted license. For more information on statistics, refer to Configuring Licenses Using CLI.
