Avaya CM versus SIP license

Avaya CM versus SIP license

Avaya CM versus SIP license

I've got an Avaya CM installed with system/session manager. When I program a 9611G H.323 station I see my license count drop by 1 in CM. But, I'm confused about where my license for SIP stations reside. I have quite a number of SIP stations programmed but I'm not clear on where those stations pull their license from. Any ideas out there.

RE: Avaya CM versus SIP license

Depending on your configuration, you should see your license count drop in CM when you add a SIP station. I actually checked that today on my own system. I'm still using an evolution setup.

RE: Avaya CM versus SIP license

They typically don't care. Session Managers need an instance license for the server to exist. CM needs licenses for stations - whether analog/digital/H323/SIP.

Because a SIP phone is only useful on CM using CM features, the licensing is managed on CM.

So, when you buy a system new with 100 Aura Core users, it includes an entitlement for a CM phone, AAM mailbox, Presence Server account, etc,etc
It also gets priced to include 1 server instance license for the servers needed to fulfill that - so, 1 presence, 1 aam, 1 cm, etc

Build that phone as h323, SIP, digital, whatever.

There are exceptions like hotels adding gaggles of analog only ports for cheap or adding another CM instance because you want 2 PBXs for your users, but the overarching concept is paying for users and those users can connect from any type of endpoint - 9608 H323, 9608SIP, Windows softphones, iPhone, whatever.
