Cisco Software Activation on Integrated Services Routers

Software licensing for the branch

Cisco Integrated Services Routers (ISR) are built for the next wave of branch office evolution. They transform licensing from "right to use" to "software activation licensing," helping you realize operational savings through reduced service calls, ease of software ordering, simplified software management, and greater flexibility in deploying new features.

Enjoy easy router activation and management

Secure, included licensing

Each ISR ships with a universal Cisco IOS software image and requires software activation licensing keys to activate IOS functionality. New devices are shipped with a software activation license preinstalled for the features ordered with the router.

Streamlined router deployment

A single IOS universal image will ship with all ISR platforms. Technology package licenses enable full IOS functionality and simplify ordering.

Operational simplicity

Try before you buy. Temporary licenses let you evaluate new IOS functionality before purchasing. And you only pay for what you need: se a software key to enable new features incrementally in the field without a truck roll.
