Ordering WCS

Unanswered Question
Aug 17th, 2010

I'm working with a customer that has several WLC in place and working already. They now want to get a WCS server with location services in place. Does the licensing strictly depend on the number of APs in use, not the number or type of WLCs?

For a linux server, the part number I want is AIR-WCS-LL-1.0-K9, isn't it? Does that part number include any AP licenses? And the additional APs are licensed in multiples of 50, 100, and 500, correct?

Thanks!

I have this problem too.

Here is the ordering guide:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5755/ps6301/ps6305...

You have different feature sets and the part you want is WCS-STANDARD-K9

or WCS-ENT-PLUS-K9. You will download the WCS flavor you want from the

website (windows / linux)

Licensing is by number of access points :

Example for Standard license:

If you are a NEW Cisco WCS customer who wants support for 50, 100, or

500 access points in a single server deployment, order WCS-STANDARD-K9

and select one of the Cisco Base options below:

WCS-APBASE-50: License supports up to 50 access points.

WCS-APBASE-100: License supports up to 100 access points.

WCS-APBASE-500: License supports up to 500 access points.

Note: If your access point deployment does not exactly match 50, 100 or

500, you need to order multiple licenses. For example, to support an

access point deployment of 250 you would order (2) WCS-APBASE-100

licenses + (1) WCS-APBASE-50 license. This ordering process applies to

both new and upgrade orders.

• If you are an EXISTING Cisco WCS customer who wants to increase access

points support within a single server deployment, order WCS-STANDARD-K9

and select one of the Cisco Base options below:

WCS-APBASE-50: License supports up to 50 access points.

WCS-APBASE-100: License supports up to 100 access points.

WCS-APBASE-500: License supports up to 500 access points.

OK, thank you... I didn't realize that version supported location services.

Hello,

I’m not sure to understand, can you confirm this:

If I order the licence WCS-APBASE-100, the WCS standard-k9 is included in this price with no additional cost?

Thanks

Christian

I missed the location question part, you are correct for location

feature, then the AP license needs to be either plus or enterprise plus:

WCS-PLUS-50: License supports up to 50 access points.

WCS-PLUS-100: License supports up to 100 access points.

WCS-PLUS-500: License supports up to 500 access points.

WCS-ENT-PLUS-1000: License supports up to 1000 access points.

WCS-ENT-PLUS-2500: License supports up to 2500 access points.

WCS-ENT-PLUS-10000: License supports up to 10000 access points.

WCS-ENT-PLUS-50000: License supports up to 50000 access points.

Just wanted to add for your benifit.

If you have future cusotmers that have "base" WCS and want location you can purchase an "upgrade" license. Just and FYI

Understand that the Enterprise WCS License allows us to “load share” the license between multiple servers.

Should the top-level part number (WCS-ENT-PLUS-K9) be chosen as qty 1 or  qty 2?

WCS-ENT-PLUS-K9 Family SKU for WCS Enterprise PLUS License Products 2 USD -
WCS-ENT-PLUS-1000 Cisco WCS Enterprise PLUS License for 1000 APs,Windows/Linux 2 USD 80,245.00
CON-SAU-WENTP1K SW APP SUPP + UPGR Cisco WCS Enterprise 2 USD 16,049.00
CON-SAU-WENTK9 SW APP SUPP + UPGR Family SKU for WCS E 2 USD -

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/wireless/ps5755/ps6301/ps6305/product_data_sheet0900aecd804b4646.html

If you are a NEW Cisco WCS customer with an enterprise deployment and want single device Location tracking, High Availability, and support for 1000, 2500, 10000, or 50000 access points, order WCS-ENT-PLUS-K9 and one of the Cisco WCS PLUS options below:

WCS-ENT-PLUS-1000: License supports up to 1000 access points.

Yes. It depends on the number of APs.
