The IP Office system requires licenses for some features, see Licenses. The license file can be either uploaded manually or pre-loaded onto the System SD card.
•An XML file containing the full set of PLDS licenses is uploaded to the system. The license file is unique to the feature key serial number of the System SD card installed in the system.
•The card's ID number is printed on the card's label after PLDS ID, FK SN or FK depending on the age of the card. On newer cards is a 12-digit number. Older cards may have a 10-digit number. For PLDS licensing, use the 12-digit number. On older cards, for licensing, prefix the 10-digit number with 11.
For IP Office Essential Edition, the system requires an Essential Edition system license for the specific IP Office release you want it to run.
Systems can also obtain their entitlements for user and features through monthly subscriptions. For details refer to "Deploying an IP500 V2 IP Office Subscription System". Existing PLDS licensed systems can be migrated to subscription licensing.
