Main page: Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express, Release 2.x


There are two types of licenses:

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express uses premium licenses.
  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT uses standard licenses.


Licenses enable specific features and capabilities on the system. You purchase license SKUs with your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express order and install the license file for that order to enable the features and capabilities that you purchased. You may also upgrade your system by purchasing and installing additional licenses.


Contents

Premium and Standard Licenses

  • Premium licenses-Used for scheduled and reservationless voice, web, and video meetings. Used with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system; cannot be used with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT system.
When the systemsoftware license is installed, the system is enabled with the premium (scheduled) voice, web, and video license counts and six trial standard (ad hoc) voice and video licenses. If you install the systemsoftware license, the web ports in your system can be used for either premium (scheduled) meetings or standard (ad hoc) meetings.
  • Standard licenses-Used for ad hoc voice, web, and video meetings. Used with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT system; cannot be used with the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system.
When the stdsw license is installed, the system is enabled with the standard (ad hoc) voice, web, and video license counts and six trial premium (scheduled) voice, web, and video licenses. Standard (ad hoc) meetings and web support are provided only through Cisco Unified Personal Communicator.


If you do not install any licenses on your system, by default you have six trial premium (scheduled) licenses for each of voice, web, and video and six trial standard (ad hoc) licenses for each of voice, web, and video. On all systems, the web ports are shared between premium (scheduled) and standard (ad hoc).


License Restrictions

  • If you upgrade to Release 2.x from an earlier release of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express, you must install the relevant upgrade licenses. Many licenses from earlier releases of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express do not work with Release 2.x.
  • Although you can install both the standard (stdsw) and premium (systemsoftware) licenses on the same system, they cannot both be active on the same system. If you install both licenses on your system, the premium (systemsoftware) license takes precedence.
For example, suppose that you install the stdsw license on your system. If you then want to install a new license file that includes the systemsoftware license, you must select the Upload new license file installation option, which deletes all previously installed licenses before installing the new license file. See the Installing the License File for more information.
This restriction means that you can use your system for either standard (ad hoc) conferencing or for premium (scheduled) conferencing.
  • Note: Your system comes with six trial licenses that you may use to experiment with unlicensed features.
  • By default, every Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system comes with six trial voice licenses, six trial web licenses, and six trial video licenses for standard (ad hoc) conferencing. If you do not purchase additional licenses, the six trial web licenses expire after 60 days. The system also comes with six trial standard (ad hoc) licenses.
  • The premium (systemsoftware) license upgrades a system running in standard (ad hoc) mode, to a system running in premium (scheduled) mode. When such an upgrade occurs, the standard (ad hoc) portion of the system is limited to the six trial voice licenses, six trial web licenses, and six trial video licenses and cannot be expanded. The web licenses (which may be more than six if you have purchased additional ones), can be used for either scheduled and reservationless (premium) or ad hoc (standard) meetings.
  • Depending on how your system is configured, you may not be able to take advantage of all the licenses you purchase. That is, the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system lets you purchase more licenses than your current system capacity. For more information about system capacity, see the System Capacity Planning.


License Expiration

  • All licenses used for customer demonstration purposes expire.
  • The system does not consider the expiration date of a license when users schedule meetings; instead, the system checks and enforces the expiration date when users join meetings. The system displays a message if a license is about to expire.
  • If a license has an expiration date, it is displayed in the Comment field on the Licenses Summary page.
  • The system displays a warning message on the Administration Center home page two weeks before a license will expire.

Table: Licenses for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express
License Description

exchange

The exchange license enables you to integrate your Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express system with a Microsoft Exchange Server. This allows your users to schedule and manage meetings from the Microsoft Outlook Calendar and send and receive Microsoft Outlook Calendar notifications.


The exchange license is a non-counted license, which means it is either set to Yes or No.


If you do not install the exchange license, you cannot integrate Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express with Microsoft Outlook. One exception is that if the systemsoftware license is not installed, Microsoft Outlook functionality is enabled for trial and demonstration purposes.

languages

The languages license enables the simultaneous use of up to four supported languages on a system. If you do not install the languages license, you can enable only one language.


The languages license is a non-counted license, which means it is either set to Yes or No.

Note: The languages license is not required for ad hoc meetings because there are no voice prompts and ad hoc meeting users do not access the End-User Interface.

maxstd

The maxstd license denotes the maximum number of standard (ad hoc) voice, web, or video licenses that can be used on this particular system, due to system restraints. If the stdvoiceconf, webconf, or stdvideoconf license count exceeds the value of the maxstd license, the system uses the value of the maxstd license instead.

maxvideo

The maxvideo license denotes the maximum number of video licenses that can be used for scheduled and reservationless meetings on this particular system. If the videoconf license count exceeds the value of the maxvideo license, the system uses the value of the maxvideo license instead.


The value of the maxvideo license is the absolute system limit for video conferencing.


Any maxvideo license limitations for your system appear in the Comment field on the Licenses Summary page. To find this page in the Administration Center, see the Displaying Licenses.


Restriction: If you purchase and install a new maxvideo license, it overwrites the old one. The new port count is not added to the previous port count.

maxvoice

The maxvoice license denotes the maximum number of voice licenses that can be used for scheduled and reservationless meetings on this particular system. If the voiceconf license count exceeds the value of the maxvoice license, the system uses the value of the maxvoice license instead.


The value of the maxvoice license is the absolute system limit for voice conferencing.


Any maxvoice license limitations for your system appear in the Comment field on the Licenses Summary page. To find this page in the Administration Center, see the Displaying Licenses.


Restriction: If you purchase and install a new maxvoice license, it overwrites the old one. The new port count is not added to the previous port count.

maxweb

The maxweb license limits the number of web ports that can be used for scheduled and reservationless meetings on your system. For example, if the webconf license port count is greater than the maxweb license port count, then the system uses the port count specified in the maxweb license.


The value of the maxweb license is the absolute system limit for web conferencing.


Any maxweb license limitations for your system appear in the Comment field on the Licenses Summary page. To find this page in the Administration Center, see the Displaying Licenses.


Restriction: If you purchase and install a new maxweb license, it overwrites the old one. The new port count is not added to the previous port count.

secondaryservers

The secondaryservers license determines whether a connection can be established to the secondary server. This is used for segmented meeting access (SMA).


The secondaryservers license can also be used for larger systems where web conferencing needs to run on the secondary server so that voice and video conferencing can be scaled on the primary server.

stdsw

The stdsw license enables the system to use the stdvoiceconf, webconf, stdvideoconf, and maxstd licenses for standard (ad hoc) conferencing. (If the systemsoftware license, which denotes that the system is operating in the premium mode, is loaded, the stdsw license is ignored.)


The stdsw license has a version number and the system determines if this license is valid based on the version number.


Restrictions:

  • You cannot install both the systemsoftware and stdsw licenses on the same server.
  • If you do not install the stdsw license, the system can use only the six trial voice ports, six trial video ports, and six trial web ports for standard (ad hoc) conferencing. The six trial web ports expire 60 days after system installation, unless you install a webconf license to make them permanent.

stdvideoconf

The stdvideoconf license limits the number of concurrent standard (ad hoc) video conferencing participants. This number may be further limited by the maxstd license. If you do not install the stdvideoconf license, the system can use only the six trial video ports for standard (ad hoc) conferencing.


The actual number of usable standard (ad hoc) video ports on the system depends on the configured value of the Video maximum bit rate parameter. See the About Video Ports for Ad Hoc Conferencing.


Restrictions:

  • Standard (ad hoc) video licenses that exceed the total number of standard (ad hoc) voice licenses cannot be used.
  • The maximum value for this license is 40.

stdvideoupg

The stdvideoupg license allows you to upgrade standard (ad hoc) video licenses to premium (scheduled) video licenses when upgrading Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express. The stdvideoupg license essentially changes the stdvideoconf license into a videoconf license.

stdvoiceconf

The stdvoiceconf license limits the number of concurrent standard (ad hoc) voice conferencing participants. This number may be further limited by the maxstd license. If you do not install the stdvoiceconf license, the system can use only the six trial voice ports for standard (ad hoc) conferencing.

stdvoiceupg

The stdvoiceupg license allows you to upgrade standard (ad hoc) voice licenses to premium (scheduled) voice licenses when upgrading Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express VT to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express. The stdvoiceupg license essentially changes the stdvoiceconf license into a voiceconf license.

systemsoftware

The systemsoftware license enables the system to use the voiceconf, webconf, and videoconf licenses for premium (scheduled) meetings. If you do not install the systemsoftware license, the system can use only the six trial voice ports, the six trial web ports, and the six trial video ports for premium (scheduled) meetings.


The systemsoftware license has a version number and the system determines if this license is valid based on the version number.

Note: The six trial web ports expire 60 days after system installation, unless you install a webconf license to make them permanent.


Requirements:

  • To obtain a systemsoftware license, purchase a base software SKU or a software version upgrade. You cannot obtain a systemsoftware license by purchasing a capacity or platform upgrade.
  • The version number specified by the systemsoftware license must be greater than or equal to the first digit of the installed software version number.


Restriction: You cannot install both the systemsoftware and stdsw licenses on the same server.

videoconf

The videoconf license limits the number of concurrent video participants for premium (scheduled) meetings. The available number of video ports may be further limited by the maxvideo license.


If you do not install the videoconf license, the system can use only the six trial video ports for premium (scheduled) meetings. (A port is defined as a single video caller connecting at any rate.)


Requirement: To enable the system to use the videoconf license for premium (scheduled) meetings, you must install the systemsoftware license.

voiceconf

The voiceconf license limits the number of concurrent voice participants for premium (scheduled) meetings, including:

  • Calls to and from the system
  • Voice participants in meetings


The available number of voice ports may be further limited by the maxvoice license.


If you do not install the voiceconf license, the system can use only the six trial voice ports for premium (scheduled) meetings.


Requirement: To enable the system to use the voiceconf license for premium (scheduled) meetings, you must install the systemsoftware license.

webconf

The webconf license is defined as follows:

  • If you install the stdsw license, the webconf license limits the number of available standard (ad hoc) web ports on the system. This number may be further limited by the maxstd license.
  • If you install the systemsoftware license, the webconf license limits the number of concurrent participants using the full web meeting room for scheduled or reservationless meetings. This number may be further limited by the maxweb license.

Note: If you want all or most users to be able to schedule full web meetings, install an equal number of voice ports and web ports through the voiceconf and webconf licenses.

  • If you do not install either the stdsw license or the systemsoftware license, the webconf license makes the six trial web ports permanent.
  • If you do not install the webconf license, the system can use only the six trial web ports, which expire 60 days after system installation. If you purchase a base software SKU, your order comes with a trial webconf license that makes the six trial web ports permanent after you install the license.
