Licenses are used on the innovaphone gateways to enable specific features so that the customers have to pay for features only, which they actually use. There are 3 different types of licenses: For the Gateway (Relay), the PBX and DECT.

Contents

Gateway Licenses

Channels Enables the use of the number of DSP channels as specified in the license. A DSP channel is needed for each call to a ISDN interface, an analog Interface or a conference interface. If no license is availabe the call is rejected.
BRIs Enables the use of a ISDN Basic Rate Interface. Only licensed interfaces are displayed in the user interface and can be used for calls. Which interface is enabled is chosen by a default sequence. If other interfaces are desired, interfaces can be disabled, which means they do not consume a license.
PRIs Enables the use of a ISDN Primary Rate Interface. Only licensed interfaces are displayed in the user interface and can be used for calls. Which interface is enabled is chosen by a default sequence. If other interfaces are desired, interfaces can be disabled, which means they do not consume a license.
Gatekeeper7 Enables the gatekeeper functionality on version 7 and version 8. Which means the gateway VOIP interface type 'Gatekeeper/Registrar' is available.

Built in Licenses

Since the release of version 7 some hardware platforms already come fully equipped with all necessary interface licenses. The units are:

  • IP22
  • IP24
  • IP28
  • IP302

This includes also the required Channel licenses. Built-in licenses are not shown in the Licenses table in Gateway / General.

PBX Licenses

PORT8*20 Port License. To register Endpoints at PBX Objects. This SMB version can not be installed at a Slave Pbx and can only be used for one Device/Project. Maximum 20 Ports of this SMB version are possible, for more ports normal Port licenses must be added.
PORT8 Port License. To register Endpoints at PBX Objects. Many endpoints can register at one Object and only one Port License is in use. A Port License gets in use when at least one Object has a registration. Configuring Objects without registration do not need licenses.
Mobility8 License to enable Mobility function for a User Object.
SoftwarePhones License to use a innovaphone Software Phone (not for the Bria softphone)
Operator8 License to use the innovaphone operator software.
Voicemail8 License to use the innovaphone voicemail script. Must be at least the same as the Port license.
Standby8 License to enable Standby operation. Must be at least the same as the Port license. With this license a PBX accepts Registrations from endpoints not configured for this PBX, which should happen only if the PBX where the endpoint is configured for, is not available. A Standby license installed without a Port license does not do anything.
GSM-n License to use a GSM client of the version n on the GSM phone

Port licenses are used for trunk, executive, gateway ,user and PBX objects (for registering slave and dyn PBXs).

** Note : If you do any License changing, adding or deleting licenses. The PBX needs an reboot that the license changes become effective.

Example Mobility

A user object requires a Port license if there is at least one registration on it. A user using a mobility object (that is, a forking destination and a mobility object is defined) requires a Mobility license per destination. A forking destination with no mobility object defined require no Mobility license. The mobility client (which is to be installed on the mobile phone) will require a GSM license.

So if you create a user object with a VoIP terminal registration and a forking destination with mobility, then you will need 1 Port license and 1 Mobility license. If on the user object there are no registrations but a forking destination with mobility enabled, then it will need 1 Mobility license but no Port license. If there are no registrations and a forking destination without mobility, then no license at all is required.

The standard configuration (a user object with registrations and a mobility enabled forking destination and a mobile phone with mobile client installed) requires 1 Port plus 1 Mobility plus 1 GSM license.

In summary you also can have more Mobility lics than you have port lics.

PBX Floating mechanism

If no Port license is installed locally on a slave/standby PBX it obtains automatically all PBX licenses from the master. If this option is used, Port licenses need to be installed for the total number of endpoints in the system on the master.

Slaves with locally installed licenses can be mixed with Slaves obtaining their licenses from the master.

A slave/standby stores the received license in flash memory so it can still operate even if the master is not available.

License updates between master and slaves are sent in intervals of approximately 10min to limit the bandwidth usage. Because of this it may happen that temporarily more licenses can be used than actually available.

It is not necessary/possible to buy floating licenses. You can use them without a balance in my.innovaphone.com. There is no license needed at all to use the floating mechanism.

Licensing for Standby operation

If a PBX shall operate as standby (either as dedicated standby or as a master being standby for a slave, or as a slave being standby for a master), a standby license with at least the value of the Port license must be available. This Standby license can be obtained from the Master by the use of the Floating mechanism.

Examples

Dedicated Standby (Standby/Standby-Slave)

No PBX licenses should be installed on the Standby, to obtain the licenses from the master and a Standby license of the correct size has to be installed on the master.

Master acting as Standby

If a master should accept registrations which are configured for slaves, in case the slaves are not available a Standby license of at least the size of the Port licenses needs to be installed on this master.

Slave acting as Standby for Master

If a slave should accept registrations which are not configured for this slave, in case the master is not available, a standby license of at least the size of the Port license must be available on the slave. If the licenses are obtained from the master by the use of the Floating mechanism the Standby license must be installed on the master, if local licenses are used, the standby license must be installed on the slave.

DECT Licenses

Multicell The Multicell license enables the Multicell master and defines the System Identification (ARI) on the wireless side, installed on the IP1200.
