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. 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

PBX7#n<@m> PBX Base License. 'n' defines the total number of registrations allowed on the PBX. With @m another Base license with a limit of m can be upgraded to n.
Registrations The number of endpoints which can be registered at the PBX. A gateway or phone with multiple registrations count as multiple endpoints. For regitrations which happen because of a failover situation no such license is needed.
SoftwarePhones License to use an innovaphone Software Phone.
Operators License to use the innovaphone operator software.
Voicemail#n<@m> License to use the innovaphone voicemail script. 'n' must be at least the same as the PBX Base license.
Standby#n<@m> License to enable Standby operation. 'n' must be at least the same as the PBX Base 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 Base license does not do anything.

PBX Floating License

With a special Base license (PBX7#0) a slave/standby PBX is enabled to obtain all licenses from the master. If this option is used on the master Base and Registration licenses need to be installed for the total number of endpoints in the system.

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 the licensemanager.

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 PBX Base license must be available. This Standby license can be obtained from the Master by the use of a Floating License.

Examples

Dedicated Standby (Standby/Standby-Slave)

A Floating License 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 Base license 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 Base license must be available on the slave. If the licenses are obtained from the master by the use of a Floating License the Standby license must be installed on the master, if local licenses are used, the standby license must be installed on the slave.

OEM Licenses

A PBX OEM License is a license which allows only endpoints to be registered at the PBX with a product Id indicating the OEM. An OEM license has the format Registrations.OEM=n. OEM indicates the beginning of the product id sent to the PBX when the endpoints register.

Standby/Redundancy

The standby license is included in the OEM license. For a standby configuration it may be necessary to register interfaces from standby gateways at the PBX. For this purpose a license which allows 20 registrations from gateways of the same type is added also. This license does not support a configuration in which as standby a different gateway is used (e.g. IP302 as standby for IP800 is NOT supported).

Voicemail

The Voicemail license cannot be used together with the OEM license

Upgrade to full license

For the upgrade to a full innovaphone PBX license a basic license for the full number of endpoints has to be installed. Registration licenses are only needed for the other endpoints. (E.g. if 90 OEM endpoints and 10 other endpoints shall be used a basic license of 100 and a Registration license of 10 is needed)

DECT Licenses

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