Enterprise License Manager provides simplified, enterprise-wide management of user-based licensing, including license fulfillment. Enterprise License Manager handles licensing fulfillment, supports allocation and reconciliation of licenses across supported products, and provides enterprise-level reporting of usage and entitlement.
You have the ability to define how to manage licensing of your enterprise. You can have one Enterprise License Manager for the entire enterprise, or you can have several Enterprise License Managers and divide the enterprise in a manner that best suits your needs.
Enterprise License Manager can run on a separate server or virtual machine or can coreside on a product's server or virtual machine. For more information on designing Cisco Unified Communications Systems, see www.cisco.com/go/ucsrnd.
