Thanks for submiting this question. The part of activating the SMARTNET is handle by your your Cisco Reseller or Account manager that sold you the contract, I think that if you have already bought the contract for your ASA it might active. The benefits will be Cisco TAC support 24/7, software upgrades, RMA within the service level you have purchase, if you also have add an IPS module to your ASA you can get signature upgrades.
I hope this helps.
