AOS 8.0 Licensing Help - Clarification / Example

I'm working on trying to understand the licensing model within AOS 8.x and I'm having a hard time understanding how to license the MM and VMC, and what devices support PEF-V? If I have a scenario like this, what is the licensing I would need:

 

(1) MM

(2) VMC

(300) APs

 

How many MM licenses and VMC licenses would I require in this example and why?

 

For PEF-V licenses, are they available on the standard VMC's or only on the hardware platforms + VMC-Tactical? I understand to license PEF-V it is a single license for the single controller, so if I have 2 controllers for redundant access, do I need to purchase PEF-V for both?

 

Thanks.


Thank you.

Re: AOS 8.0 Licensing Help - Clarification / Example

You will need a 500 MM license to cover all those devices (that's not considering growth of course)

All the licenses AP , PEF , RFProtect , WEB-CC and VMC will be installed on the MM except for controller local licenses like PEF-V , if you need license redundancy
Between two controllers for PEF-V you will need to purchase 2 since those are not shared with centralized licensing

Re: AOS 8.0 Licensing Help - Clarification / Example

That's great info, thanks. So how many VMC licenses do I need then assuming I'm going to have (2) VMC's and (300) APs total in the environment.

 

Also, do you know if PEF-V is supported on the standard VMC or just hardware / VMC-Tact?


Thank you.
