IAPs License/Subscription to Aruba Central

    Hi there,

     

    Just a quick question. I have 4 IAPs, so in order to get them onto Aruba Central do I need 4 licenses and 4 subscriptions? I am getting slightly confused regarding the licenses and subscriptions.
    Do IAPs automatically have license to go to Aruba Central and then you will just need subscription license?

     

    Thanks in advance

    Device management subscriptions — Subscriptions for the devices. The device management subscription allows you to add and manage devices (APs and Switches), and avail basic services such as device configuration, monitoring dashboard, reports, and application analytics.

     

    Cloud service subscriptions — Subscriptions that enable an advanced cloud service on any capable device. For example, access to application services such as Presence Analytics is based on the cloud service subscription. As of today, the cloud services portfolio includes Presence Analytics, Guest Access, Clarity, and Unified Communication services.

     

    You would need to purchase the relevant subscriptions for the features you wish to use. Once the subscription has been tied to the Central account you can then link the subscription to the device in Central.

    Please help,

     

    I'm still not undersatand about sizing Aruba Central Services Subscriptions. Let's do this example. I've 10 Instant AP, and I want manage by Aruba central, Clarity services, Guest Wifi services and presence analytics services. So should i buy like this?

    • Aruba Central Device Management Subscription @ 10 Unit
    • Aruba Central Services Subscriptions @ 10 Unit (for clarity services)
    • Aruba Central Services Subscriptions @ 10 Unit (for Guest wifi services)
    • Aruba Central Services Subscriptions @ 10 Unit (for presence analytics)

    Total 10 unit Aruba Central Device Management Subscription + 30 unit Aruba Central Services Subscriptions.

    Is that correct?

     

    Or I just need 10 unit Aruba Central Device Management Subscription + 10 unit Aruba Central Services Subscriptions.

     

    Thank you,

    Hi,

     

    you'll need 10 dev management subscriptions and 30 service subscriptions.

    I am still a little confused on the licensing. If all I want is Aruba Central to manage devices and I have 93 devices, I only need 93 DM tokens? I don't use the ClearPass Insight, Guest Networks. We only manage the network from Central.

     

    Thanks!
