License activation considerations
The following must be considered for license activation:
eFulfillment versus offline fulfillment - eFulfillment uses an Enterprise License Manager (ELM) to connect directly to the Cisco License web site to fulfill licenses from a PAK. Consequently, the ELM must have access to the Internet. If for security or other reasons, the ELM in the HCS deployment does not have direct access to the Cisco License website, then offline fulfillment can be used. For details on both methods, see Licensing Activation for Cisco Hosted Collaboration Solution 9.2(1).
Unified Communications Software Subscription (UCSS) activation - In HCS there are ways to purchase licenses and delay auto-activation. You need to consider UCSS activation when you are adding customers.
