Nebula provides the opportunity to upgrade your Nebula Organization to Professional Pack Life Time, a One-Time license that removes the hassle of annual renewals. You can learn more about the Limited Lifetime License here.
The Limited Lifetime Licenses (LLL) require to be implemented based on the device type, an Access Point (AP) will require an AP LLL key; a Switch will require an SW LLL, etc. Moreover, there are 2 different LLL keys you can currently get for your APs and Switches:
- (Standard) Limited Lifetime License (LLL).
- Top-Up Limited Lifetime License (LLU).
Which kind of license can be used depends on whether the device comes with a Bundled License once registered to a Nebula's Organization.
Bundle license devices:
Includes brand new NAP series, NebulaFlex Pro AP series, NSW series, NebulaFlex Pro Switch series and NSG series.
These devices can use the Top-Up Limited Lifetime License. Alternatively, the standard LLL can also be applied.
Note: If the device has been registered and unregistered from an organization, it becomes Non-bundle license device when it is registered into a different organization.
Non-bundle license devices:
NebulaFlex AP series, NebulaFlex Switch series, and devices previously registered into another organization (and license had been activated).
These devices can only use the Standard Limited Lifetime License.
Choosing the right the LLL key is important and needs to be determined by the type and quantity of devices registered in the organization.
While registering the first LLL key, NCC will provide a message detailing the quantity and type of license needed (if any) to upgrade to a Limited Lifetime org.
Once the org is upgraded, the license allocation information is displayed in the License Management page.
