Customers sometimes ask us for advice on how to find out how many Nebula Points they have to purchase for their respective site. Nebula Points are licensing points which allow you to use Pro-Pack features on the Nebula Control Center.
There are two main ways in how to find out this information:
- The proactive way
If you want to find out, how many points you need, before rolling out a project, then you can use the Nebula License Calculator after logging in to your Nebula-Account and navigating to
Nebula Control Center > Help > License Calculator
There, you add the number of devices, which you plan to roll-out as well as the time-frame:
- The passive way
If you already rolled out a project successfully, and you just simply want to know the annual value of points you need, then let Nebula calculate for you via:
Nebula Control Center > Organization > Configure > License Management
The upper circle defines the numbers of devices currently on the site, the lower circle indicates the number of points to maintain the ProPack-status for a fully year for these devices. In this example case, an Access point needs 30 points/yr, the switch 35 points/yr and a NSG needs 50 points/yr , totaling in 115 points.
