Why CME License?

When I have a router with IOS that suopports CME I could configure IP Telephony. Why I need the license in this case?

Re: Why CME License?

Simple, it is a licensed feature and you should buy it.

Licenses

You must purchase a base Cisco Unified CME feature license and phone  user licenses that entitle you to use Cisco Unified CME.

It's a honour based license, as it was in CUCM.

That's right and it's possible this change when using IOS 15

as features are unlocked by license files

. Not sure if/when this model for CUCME

8 is in place but I'd not be surprised if it's true for some future releases.

Thanks Rodmont.

I see it works for IOS version 12.4 also. I could conigure the telephony service and the IP Phones could register for it.
