What is the new subscription model introduced in Central 2.2.8 ?


Starting from 2.2.8 , Central supports a new subscription model that allows you to use separate subscriptions for devices and services. 

In the previous versions, the subscriptions were broken down by the type of device, with separate subscriptions for APs and Switches.

The new model supports two types of subscriptions:

Device management subscription: This type of subscription can be assigned to any manageable device. Either to AP or switch.

Cloud service Subscription :  This type of subscription enables an advanced cloud service on any capable device. With this release, the cloud services portfolio includes Presence Analytics and Guest Access services

To view your new licenses, click on the App Selector and navigate to Global Settings > Devices & Subscriptions > Subscription Keys.

The Subscription Keys page displays the device and services subscription details in two separate tabs : Devices and Network services
