BE6000 CUCM 9.1 version licensing query

Hi All,

We have a BE6000 with CUCM 9.1 and UCL enhanced license subscription for 3 years. Can somebody help me understand what we need to do at the end of 3 years? Do we need to renew the licenses or do we have to purchase new licenses all together.

Once you purchase the licenses, it stays with you and does not expire.  However, if you do not keep your UCSS current and smartnet subscriptions, you will not be able to upgrade to version 10 or higher.  (after three years).   If you let it expire, Cisco usually has a program in place to allow the customer "get well" or "get current" for subscriptions.  Instead of buying new licenses, you will be required to buy upgrades or renew your subscription at a higher price.

In a nutshell, stay current on your UCSS and SmartNet contracts and you will be fine.
