New Software feature Upgrade Licenses
for the Cisco 7200 and Cisco 7500 Series Routers

Introduction

Cisco IOS® software encompasses several distinctly different types of software licensing. This document describes software feature upgrade licenses and those that have been recently added for the Cisco 7200 and 7500 Series Routers.

Cisco IOS Software Upgrade Licenses

Customers who purchase "base" software licenses may wish to increase their software functionality or feature set at some point. For example, some customers with IP software may wish to upgrade to Enterprise. Similarly, some customers with Enterprise software may wish to upgrade to Enterprise with Firewall/IDS. The following examples illustrate the benefits of software upgrade licenses as well as how they are used to provide increased software functionality.

Upgrade A Feature Set (Single)

If a customer purchased a Cisco 7200 chassis with Enterprise software, product code S72A-12209, Cisco IOS 7200 Series Enterprise and now wants to upgrade to Enterprise with Firewall, the customer has one of two options.

With a valid maintenance contract, the customer may purchase the software feature license, FL72-H=, Cisco IOS 7200 Series Firewall Upgrade, to upgrade from Enterprise to Enterprise with Firewall.

Without maintenance, the customer will need to purchase a new software license, product code S72AH-12209=, Cisco IOS 7200 Series Enterprise/FW/IDS, in order to upgrade from Enterprise to Enterprise with Firewall.

Upgrade Feature Sets (Multiple)

If a customer purchased a Cisco 7500 chassis with IP software, product code S75C-12208T, Cisco IOS 7500 Series IP, and now wants to upgrade to Enterprise with IPSEC 56, the customer has one of two options.

With a valid maintenance contract, the customer will need to purchase two software feature license: Cisco IOS 7500 Series IP to Enterprise, FR75-C-A=, and Cisco IOS 7500 Series IPSEC 56 Upgrade, FL75-L=. The first license upgrades from IP to Enterprise, and the second upgrades from Enterprise to Enterprise/IPSEC 56.

Without maintenance, the customer will need to purchase a new software license, product code S75AK8-12208T=, Cisco IOS 7500 Series Enterprise/IPSEC 56, in order to upgrade from IP to Enterprise/IPSEC 56.
