Is it need to buy firewall license?

Hi everyone,


We need to bug a new controller ,But we don't know if we need to bug the firewall license(Next Generation Policy Enforcement Firewall Module)


What does the firewall license use for actually? Do we have to buy it ?


Thank you

Here is the datasheet:  https://www.arubanetworks.com/assets/ds/DS_PEF.pdf


Without the Policy Enforcement Firewall, you can authenticate users, but you cannot treat them differently from each other.  If you do not need the features in that datasheet, and you can get by without treating users that connect to the same wireless network differently, you may not need the policy enforcement firewall.
