IOS: license type

Hi

On one of our new cisco device, in output of "show version" there are 2 license word:

- license level: ipbase

- license type: permanent

Does cisco release IOS for yearly license ?or all IOSes have permanent license for unlimited time?

Thanks in advance

IOS: license type

Hi Nima;

Cisco Licensing:

Customers license the right to use Cisco intellectual property (software) from Cisco. When you purchase hardware, you also purchase the software and the license to use it. Hardware arrives with licensed software. When you need a different feature set, you need to purchase the license for it. Upgrade features may be licensed separately, and special Cisco IOS features are licensed separately, either on a flat usage or per-seat basis, depending on the features.

Pay an additional fee to upgrade to a new feature set—upgrades require new license. No additional fee is due when the feature set stays the same—updates require no new license.

plz Rate if it helped.

Hope it Helps!

It means that the appliance has a default license of "IP Base" feature set and WILL NOT expire.
