Cisco Prime Infrastructure provides a single integrated solution for complete lifecycle management of Cisco routers, switches, and wireless devices, along with deep visibility into end-user connectivity and application performance.
The Lifecycle License provides access to the Lifecycle feature set, which includes device configuration management, software image management, basic health and performance monitoring, fault management, troubleshooting, and network client visibility. The Lifecycle license is based on the number of managed devices. Lifecycle licenses are available in bundle sizes of 25, 50, 100, 500, 1000, 2500, 5000, 10,000, and 15,000 devices and can be combined as needed to achieve a total licensed device count.
A device is uniquely identified through the assigned IP address and system object ID (SysOid) combination. Routers, switches, lightweight/unified access points, and Cisco Prime Network Analysis Modules (NAMs) are counted against the license count. If a switch stack is managed through a single IP address, then it counts as only one device. A single chassis will, however, be counted as multiple devices if the chassis is configured with multiple IP addresses. For example, a switch with multiple service cards, such as a firewall, and so on, or a stackable switch that has an IP address assigned to each switch that participates in the stack will be treated as multiple devices within Cisco Prime Infrastructure. Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs), autonomous access points, and third-party devices are not counted against the license count.
