Re: CallManager 7 seat and device license difference

Hi Subhash,

You require DLU Licenses (Device License Units) to run the IP Phones. Seats is related to the Number of Users (so 2,500 Seats for a deployment of 2,500 Users). DLU's is related to the number, in total, of Devices x DLU's/per Device.

In CCM 5.x and above IP Phones require DLU's or Device License Units that must be purchased from Cisco;

Device licenses are required for Cisco devices and for third-party devices,with the flexibility to replace third-party devices with Cisco devices. Device licenses are sold in increments of device-license units (DLU's). Device-license units are assigned to each device connected to Cisco Unified CallManager 5.0. Each device is assigned a unit number based on the type and capabilities of the device. Devices with more complex and high-end capabilities are assigned a higher number of units compared to devices with basic capabilities,

From this good Q & A doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/voicesw/ps556/products_qanda_item0900aecd805009fc.shtml

Licensing

Application and phone software licenses are enforced. The system manages the maximum number of devices that can be provisioned.

• Each device (Cisco Unified IP phones, third-party devices, and video devices) provisioned in the system corresponds to a number of device license units (DLUs), depending on its capabilities; the total number of units is managed in Cisco Unified CallManager to determine capacity.

• DLUs must be purchased to cover the number of devices connected to Cisco Unified CallManager.

• Third-party SIP devices require DLUs for operation with Cisco Unified CallManager.

Here is the DLU breakdown;

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7902G = 1

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7905G = 2

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7911G = 3

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7912G = 3

Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7920 = 4

Cisco Unified Wireless IP Phone 7921G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7936 = 3

Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7937 = 3

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7940G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7941G-GE = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7942G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7945G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7960G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7961G-GE = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7962G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7965G = 4

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7970G = 5

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7971G = 5

Cisco Unified IP Phone 7985G = 6

Third-party SIP device (basic) = 3 (third-party)

Third-party SIP device (advanced) = 6 (third-party

Re: CallManager 7 seat and device license difference

Thank you for the information, But i just want to clarify one thing. If I am using 200 7911G and 50 7961 IP Phones i would need a total of 800 device license (DLU) ??

Re: CallManager 7 seat and device license difference

That is correct.

Re: CallManager 7 seat and device license difference

Is the 800 Device License included in the 500 seat License? If i am reading the post correctly I need the 500 seat license but as it is 250 ip phones that is deploying I would need 800 Device license Units. So the Customer would have to purchase both items seperately?

Re: CallManager 7 seat and device license difference

Hi Subhash,

There are two completely seperate Part/Licenses. The Seat License is always tied to the model of server that you will be building 7.x on. For example;

LIC-CM7.0-7845 = 500Seat (**note: no users = 500)

Hope this helps!

Re: CallManager 7 seat and device license difference

Hello Rob,

I think the LIC-CM7.0-7845= is actually comes with 5000 seats instead of 500 seats?

Btw, can I install the LIC-CM7.0-7816= on the Cisco MCS-7825 server? If it cannot be done, I wonder why the Dynamic Configuration Tools allow me to choose the LIC-CM7.0-7816= together with MCS-7825?

Thanks!
