Network and Cisco DNA Licensing

The Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches introduces a new and simplified licensing package in the form of base and add-on licenses.

●      The base licensing package includes Network Advantage licensing options that are tied to the hardware. The base licensing packages cover switching fundamentals, management automation, troubleshooting, and advanced switching features. These base licenses are perpetual.

●      The add-on licensing package includes the Cisco DNA Advantage option. In addition to on-box capabilities, the features available with this package provide Cisco innovations on the switch, as well as on Cisco DNA Center. The Cisco DNA add-on licenses are available as a subscription.

License consumption is easily determined by the package itself. While base licenses are always permanent and without an expiration date, add-on licenses have to be purchased for a 3-, 5,- or 7- year term (and hence are also known as term- based licenses).

Cisco DNA Advantage Subscription

Cisco DNA Advantage subscriptions offer a flexible way to buy software for the access domain. At each stage in the product lifecycle, Cisco DNA Advantage subscriptions help make buying, managing, and upgrading your network and infrastructure software easier. Cisco DNA Advantage subscriptions provide:

●      Flexible licensing models to smoothly distribute customers’ software spending over time.

●      Investment protection for software purchases through software services–enabled license portability.

●      Lower cost of entry with the new Cisco DNA Advantage Subscription for Switching model.

About Cisco Catalyst 9600 Series 6-Slot Chassis Switches

Cisco Catalyst 9600 Series Switches are purpose-built for resiliency at scale with the industry’s most comprehensive security and allows your business to grow at lowest total operational cost. Built upon the foundation of Catalyst 9000, the Catalyst 9600 Series offers scale and security when always on is a must.

As foundational building blocks for the Cisco Digital Network Architecture, Catalyst 9600 Series switches help customers simplify complexity, optimize IT, and reduce operational costs by leveraging intelligence, automation and human expertise that no other vendor can deliver regardless of where you are in the intent-based networking journey.

Catalyst 9600 Series Switches provide security features that help protect the integrity of the hardware as well as the software and all data that flows through the switch. It provides resiliency that keeps your business up and running seamlessly. Combine that with open APIs of Cisco IOS XE and programmability of the UADP ASIC technology, Catalyst 9600 Series switches give you what you need now with investment protection on future innovations.

As the industry’s first purpose-built 40, 100, 200 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet line of modular switches targeted for the enterprise campus core, Catalyst 9600 Series switches deliver unmatched table scale (MAC, route, and Access Control List [ACL]) and buffering for enterprise applications. They support wired switching capacity of up to 25.6 Tbps, with up to 6.4 Tbps of bandwidth per slot and a variety of granular port densities that fit diverse campus needs, including nonblocking 40, 100, 200 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) Quad Small FormFactor Pluggable (QSFP+, QSFP28, QSFP56, QSFP-DD) and 1, 10, 25, and 50 GE Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus (SFP, SFP+, SFP28, SFP56) and 10 Gigabit multigigabit (10 Gigabit Ethernet/5 Gigabit Ethernet/2.5 Gigabit Ethernet/1 Gigabit Ethernet/100 Megabit/10 Megabit) RJ45 copper ports. The switches also support advanced routing and infrastructure services (such as Multiprotocol Label Switching [MPLS] Layer 2 and Layer 3 VPNs, Multicast VPN [MVPN], and Network Address Translation [NAT]); Cisco Software-Defined Access capabilities (such as a host tracking database, cross-domain connectivity, and VPN Routing and Forwarding [VRF]-aware Locator/ID Separation Protocol [LISP]); and network system virtualization with Cisco StackWise Virtual technology that are critical for their placement in the campus core.

The Cisco Catalyst 9600 Series also supports foundational high-availability capabilities such as patching, Graceful Insertion and Removal (GIR), Cisco Nonstop Forwarding with Stateful Switchover (NSF/SSO), redundant platinum-rated power supplies, and fans.
