CRS-1/3 MSC/FP Fwd Scaling license

Hello guys,

When configuring a CRS router I found that the MSC-40/FP-40 linecards have two modes of BW operation(20/40Gbps), and you need a license to operate at 40Gbps

MSCs and CRS-FP40s can operate at 40-Gbps throughput when a license is enabled. You must use the hw-module linecard throughput command to enable 40-Mbps throughput once a license is  available. The MSC includes this license, but it must be purchased  separately to enable  40-Gbps throughput on the CRS-FP40.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/routers/crs/software/crs_r3.9/system_management/configuration/guide/yc39crs1_chapter4.html#task_1026098

So I checked on the price list and found this part number:

XC-LC20GTO40G-LIC=       Cisco CRS-1 Series MSC 20G to 40G upgrade   License           N/A       $130,000

If the MSC includes the license but the FP-40 does not ... My CRS-1 with FP-40 linecards operate at 20Gbps by default, is this correct? Does the same apply for the MSC/FP-140 linecards?

Where can I get more information regarding this issue?

Thanks in advance

Regards!

Alex
