We have MSE 3310 and WLC 5508 installed as part of wireless infra. We are going to upgrade WLC software from 7.0 to 7.4 or 7.5 which would require MSE upgrade to similar release. But MSE 3310 does not support software release after 7.3 hence we are planning to replace the device.
I would like to know is there any other product which provides similar functionality as that of MSE? Should I go for MSE appliance or software based MSE?
Currently i have context services running with Cisco context aware engine for clients and tags service enabled.
license details show CAS elements with 2000 platform limit and 1000 installed limit with license type permanant.
wIPS with 2000 platform limit and 5 wIPS monitor mode AP license of type permanant.
Evaluation licenses for wIPS local mode AP and MSAP are also installed.
I want to run down this appliance and purchase new VM based MSE. What license should I order ? Is basic MSE software free or I have to pay for it and can I transfer the licenses from existing hardware to new VM based device?
what type of base license should be needed considering my existing licenses?
