Hi Arvind,

The "Station License" has been replaced with the DLU (Device License Unit) in CCM 5.x and above;

Device licenses are required for Cisco devices and for third-party devices,with the flexibility to replace third-party devices with Cisco devices. Device licenses are sold in increments of device-license units

(DLU's). Device-license units are assigned to each device connected to Cisco Unified CallManager 5.0. Each device is assigned a unit number based on the type and capabilities of the device. Devices with more complex and high-end capabilities are assigned a higher number of units compared to devices with basic capabilities,

From this good Q & A doc;

Hope this helps!

so basically Rob, we buy the phone and the DUL and that's it.

was getting some conflicting reports from the distributor so needed to verify my sanity :)

thanks once again

Hi Arvind,

You are most welcome my friend! You should only need the phone and the DLU's
