Overview

This guide presents ordering and licensing information on Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1. Instructions are included for new customers as well as existing customers of Cisco Prime Network Control System (NCS), Cisco® Wireless Control System (WCS), or Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution (LMS) that are upgrading these products.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure bundles together Cisco Prime Network Control System and Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution for simplified ordering, licensing, and entitlement. The product versions included with Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1 are as follows:

Cisco Prime Network Control System 1.1

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution 4.2

Cisco Prime Infrastructure is the exclusive means to order these latest product versions.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure products are licensed based on the number of managed devices, where a device could be a router, switch, or access point. You are entitled to manage the licensed number of devices using any combination of the products included in the Cisco Prime Infrastructure bundle.

NCS licenses are applied to an appliance based on a unique device identifier (UDI) or virtual unique device identifier (VUDI). These are located within the Cisco Prime NCS user interface in the Administration > License Center menu found on the summary page. If you are using the command-line interface (CLI) on the appliance, use the show udi command.

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

Product Availability

Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1 will be available for ordering by mid-February, 2012.

Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1 can be ordered from the Cisco Ordering Tool. To request help with ordering, please contact Cisco Customer Service at http://www.cisco.com/go/customerservice.

Warranty Coverage and Technical Service Options

Products included in Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1 come with the Cisco 90-day software warranty. Purchasing a Cisco Software Application Support plus Upgrades (SASU) service provides benefits not available with warranty including access to maintenance releases, minor and major upgrades, online resources, and Technical Assistance Center (TAC) support services.

CiscoWorks LMS 2.x/3.x and Cisco Prime LMS 4.0 and 4.1 were offered only with Cisco Software Application Support (SAS). When upgrading to Cisco Prime LMS 4.2 through Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1 you can continue with your existing SAS contract for LMS. If you have an LMS 4.x release covered under an SAS contract you are entitled to this and future Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.x releases at no charge. You also have the option of canceling your existing SAS contract on LMS, obtaining credit for the balance, and purchasing a new SASU contract for Cisco Prime Infrastructure 1.1, which entitles you to free minor and major release upgrades to Cisco Prime Infrastructure.

Ordering Information for New Customers

For customers that do not own an earlier release of Cisco Prime NCS, Cisco WCS, or Cisco Prime LMS, use the following process:

1. Order a single base license and software sized to match the number of devices to be managed. You must have a single base license to run the software. Refer to the Base License Options section in Table 1. When using the Cisco Ordering Tool enter the part number R-PI-1.1-K9 to access the options.

2. Order any combination of add-on licenses now or in the future to grow the device count over the base license count if needed. Refer to the Add-On License Options section in Table 1.

3. If you would like to enable the Cisco Prime Assurance Manager product, order any combination of Cisco Prime Assurance Manager add-on licenses, which are based on the number of interfaces with NetFlow export to be managed.

4. If you would like to use the regulatory compliance policies and reports available in Cisco Prime LMS, order a sufficient number of compliance licenses to match your number of device licenses.

5. Purchase the physical appliance if the desired deployment option is a physical appliance rather than a virtual appliance. Both Cisco Prime NCS and Cisco Prime LMS support the physical appliance deployment option. Each product requires its own dedicated physical appliance. Refer to Table 2.

6. Order an optional SASU support contract.
