Cisco Smart Licensing
Cisco offers Smart Licensing, which enables you to monitor Cisco WAE software licenses and endpoint license consumption easily and efficiently through a simple registration and license consumption reporting process instead of having to install node-locked license files. Details of all Cisco products and licenses that you have purchased are maintained in a centralized database called the Cisco Smart Software Manager (CSSM). For more information, refer to the Cisco Smart Licensing Overview on Cisco.com. To enable Smart Licensing in WAE Design, you must install the WAE server with the Smart Licensing feature enabled. Follow the steps outlined in the “Cisco Smart Licensing” section in the Cisco WAE Server Installation Guide.
