WCS Licensing - Adding AP Capacity

Answered Question
Aug 23rd, 2010

Hello,

We have added some AP capacity to our network and are over our license limit for WCS.  We originally purchased:

WCS-STANDARD-K9

WCS-PLUS-100

Our reseller quoted me a jaw-dropping price for WCS-PLUS-50 which seems to me must include the base software license, which we don't need because we're just added AP capacity.  Is there another part number to just add AP licenses to an existing WCS installation??

I have this problem too.

Okay so this mean that you have WCS PLUS.

As per the document:

If you are a NEW Cisco WCS customer with a single server deployment and want location tracking, high availability, and support for 50, 100, or 500 access points, order WCS-STANDARD-K9 and select one of the Cisco WCS PLUS options below:

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.

CISCO WCS PLUS OPTIONS FOR EXISTING CUSTOMERS (WCS-STANDARD-K9, WCS-ENT-PLUS-K9, WCS-WLSE-UPG-K9)

If you are an EXISTING Cisco WCS PLUS customer with a single server deployment and want to increase the number of access points supported in your network, order WCS-STANDARD-K9 and one of the Cisco WCS PLUS options below:

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.

Note: These are the same licenses ordered by new customers. Licenses are additive and ordered in increments whether ordered for a new or existing deployment.

In this case, if you want to add more AP counts, then you need to buy the WCS-PLUS-50 or WCS-PLUS-100 or WCS-PLUS-500 increments.

It depends if you have originally purchased WCS-STANDARD or WCS-PLUS.

You mentioned WCS-STANDARD-K9 so I assume you have the standard WCS.

Then you need to buy for access point support : WCS-APBASE-100

The WCS plus access point count is when you have purchased WCS PLUS edition.

Look at the ordering guide:

I'm somewhat more confused now.

Here is what we got originally - from the email sent by [email protected] back in April 2009:
