Overview

Cisco Prime Infrastructure provides a single, integrated solution for complete lifecycle management of Cisco routers, switches, and wireless devices, along with deep visibility into end-user connectivity and application performance.

This guide presents ordering and licensing information for Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1. Instructions are included for new customers as well as existing customers of Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x and 2.0, Cisco Prime Network Control System (NCS), Cisco® Wireless Control System (WCS), or Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution (LMS) who are upgrading to Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 also includes the software and licenses to use Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution 4.2 for those customers not yet ready to switch to Cisco Prime Infrastructure.

Note: Both Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 and Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0 primarily use ordering part numbers that contain 2.x (where x = 0 or 1). Exceptions will be where an ordering part number requires a specific software version as shown in the following example:

Visit http://www.cisco.com/go/ordering.To request help with ordering, please contact Cisco Customer Service at http://www.cisco.com/go/customerservice.

Warranty Coverage and Technical Service Options

Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 comes with the Cisco 90-day software warranty. Customers can optionally purchase a support contract to provide benefits not available with warranty including access to maintenance releases, minor and major release upgrades, online resources, and Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support services.

For more information about Cisco warranties, go to http://www.cisco.com/go/warranty.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x was offered with optional Software Application Support plus Upgrades (SASU). Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 is offered with a new optional support contract type known as Essential Operate Service (ESW) and Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription. ESW is equivalent to SAS and provides access to Cisco TAC support, software patches, and minor release upgrades. Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription covers the “U” aspect of SASU and provides entitlement to major release upgrades for a defined contract period. Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription contract periods of 1, 2, 3, and 5 years are available. It’s possible to purchase no support, ESW by itself, or ESW along with Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription. Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription cannot be purchased without ESW.

You can find a detailed frequently asked questions document on Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription at http://www.cisco.com/go/primeinfrastructure under Data Sheets and Literature > Q&A.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure License Types

Cisco Prime Infrastructure includes the following license types:

Base License: Enables using a Cisco Prime Infrastructure management node (physical or virtual appliance). Asingle Base license is required for each management node and is a prerequisite for adding Cisco Prime Infrastructure Lifecycle licenses and Assurance licenses.

Lifecycle License: Provides access to the Lifecycle feature set, which includes device configuration management, software image management, basic health and performance monitoring, fault management, troubleshooting, and network client visibility. The Lifecycle license is based on the number of managed devices. Lifecycle licenses are available in bundle sizes of 25, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 2500, 5000, 10,000, and 15,000 devices and can be combined as needed to achieve a total licensed device count.

A device is uniquely identified through the assigned IP address and system object ID (SysOid) combination. Routers, switches, lightweight/unified access points, and Cisco Prime Network Analysis Modules (NAMs) are counted against the license count. If a switch stack is managed through a single IP address, then it counts as only one device. A single chassis will, however, be counted as multiple devices if the chassis is configured with multiple IP addresses. For example, a switch with multiple service cards, such as a firewall, and so on, or a stackable switch that has an IP address assigned to each switch that participates in the stack will be treated as multiple devices within Cisco Prime Infrastructure. Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs), autonomous access points, and third-party devices are not counted against the license count.

Assurance License: Provides access to the Assurance feature set, which provides end-to-end network visibility of application and service performance to help ensure end-user quality of experience. The Assurance feature set also provides the ability to manage and aggregate data and views across multiple NAMs. Assurance licenses are available in the same bundle sizes as Lifecycle: 25, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 2500, 5000, 10,000, and 15,000 devices.

A router or switch with NetFlow enabled consumes an Assurance license. An access point associated with a WLC where Application Visibility and Control (AVC) functionality has been enabled consumes an Assurance license. If data collection is enabled for a NAM, then the NAM consumes an Assurance license.

Collector License: Increases the NetFlow processing limit from 20,000 to 80,000 flows per second on the Cisco Prime Infrastructure management node. This license is used in conjunction with the Assurance license.

Plug-and-Play Gateway Right to Use (RTU): Provides the entitlement to deploy a separate gateway for use with the plug-and-play feature, where new devices can call in to the gateway to receive their configuration and software image. The Plug-and-Play RTU is based on the number of gateway instances you deploy. Currently only a single gateway can be deployed per Cisco Prime Infrastructure instance.

High Availability (HA) RTU: If Cisco Prime Infrastructure is deployed in a high availability configuration with one primary and one secondary instance in an HA pair, then an HA RTU is required. You only need to purchase a single set of the regular licenses (for example, Base, Lifecycle, and so on) for the primary instance. The High Availability RTU is only required for new Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.x deployments. If you have been using the high availability feature with NCS or Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x and upgrade to Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.x, then you are not required to purchase the High Availability RTU.

Compliance License: Provides access to regulatory compliance reports based on common government and industry regulatory standards. The following standards are currently supported: PCI, HIPAA, CIS, DHS, DISA, NSA, SANS, SOX, ISO17799, and Cisco SAFE. Compliance licenses are based on the number of managed devices. Compliance licenses are available in bundle sizes of 25, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 2500, 5000, and 10,000 devices and can be combined as needed to achieve a total licensed device count. Lifecycle licenses are a prerequisite for using Compliance licenses. The number of devices you can run regulatory compliance reports on is limited based on the number of compliance licenses. Note: This license type is currently used only with Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution 4.2 included in the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.x bundle. Corresponding compliance functionality will be in a later release of Cisco Prime Infrastructure.

See Figure 1.

Figure 1. Cisco Prime Infrastructure License Types and Dependencies

There are three other Cisco Prime Infrastructure license types for the special case of service providers:

Multicustomer RTU: If Cisco Prime Infrastructure is deployed to manage multiple customers, then one of these RTUs is required for each managed customer.

Base - Service Provider License: A special base license for service provider customers only in place of the regular Base license. A paper license is shipped and the license file itself is manually fulfilled through the Cisco account team or partner.

Lifecycle - Service Provider: A special Lifecycle license for service provider customers only in place of the regular Lifecycle licenses. The service provider Lifecycle license provides a single device license. A paper license is shipped and the license file itself is manually fulfilled through the Cisco account team or partner.

License Node Locking

Cisco Prime Infrastructure licenses are locked to a specific Cisco Prime Infrastructure instance based on a unique device identifier (UDI) for a physical appliance or a virtual unique device identifier (VUDI) for a virtual appliance. The identifier can be found within the Cisco Prime Infrastructure user interface under Administration > Licenses. Also if you are using the command-line interface (CLI) on the physical appliance you can use the show udi command. The identifier consists of two parts: the product ID and the serial number. When you claim a Cisco Prime Infrastructure license you will be requested to supply the product ID and serial number for your Cisco Prime Infrastructure instance.

Licenses can be rehosted if required. Please contact licensing@cisco.com.

Electronic Delivery

Cisco Prime Infrastructure software and licenses are fulfilled by electronic delivery. An email is sent with the download instructions and locations for all Cisco Prime Infrastructure software and license claim certificates.

Ordering Information for New Customers

For new customers that do not own Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x, Cisco Prime NCS, Cisco WCS, or Cisco LMS use the following process. This process can also be used for customers that already own Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0 or 2.1 and are looking to increase their license count. In this case there is no need to purchase another Base license.

1. When using Cisco Commerce Workspace begin by entering the top-level part number, R-PI2X-K9.

2. Order a single Base license and the Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 software. You must have a single Base license before any feature licenses can be added. Refer to the Software and Base License Options section in Table 1.

3. Order any combination and quantity of Lifecycle licenses as needed. Refer to the Lifecycle License Options section in Table 1.

4. Order any combination and quantity as needed of Assurance licenses. Your Lifecycle license count should be greater than or equal to your Assurance license count. Refer to the Assurance License Options section in Table 1.

5. If you expect your NetFlow processing requirements will exceed 20,000 flows per second, order the Collector license.

6. If you need to deploy a separate gateway for use with the plug-and-play feature, order a single Plug-and-Play Gateway RTU.

7. If you will be deploying Cisco Prime Infrastructure in a high availability configuration with one primary and one secondary instance, then order the High Availability RTU.

8. If you will be using Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution 4.2 and require the Compliance management functionality, then order sufficient licenses to cover the devices for which you want to run compliance reports.

9. Purchase the physical appliance if the desired deployment option is a physical appliance rather than a virtual appliance. Refer to Table 2.

10. As you select the part numbers you need to order, Cisco Commerce Workspace will present you with the opportunity to order corresponding ESW and Cisco Prime Product Assured Software Subscription part numbers.
