Cisco Catalyst 8300 License

 

About the Cisco Catalyst 8300 license, these platforms can be licensed in two different mode. For devices that are running in Cisco autonomous mode (non SD-WAN), like other Catalyst series, Cisco smart licensing is supported. All product instances would be registered, using Cisco Network Essentials or Advantage, after connecting to the Cisco smart software management website.

 

Also, for secure datacenters that outer connection is not permitted; customers can apply Cisco Catalyst 8300 PLR licenses to activate all premier features permanently. Finally, automation and SDN capabilities could be activated leveraging the Cisco DNA licenses.

In another hand, running in the Cisco controller mode (SD-WAN), customers should purchase specific plug and play and DNA licenses to enable the needed crypto performance on these devices.

Note: Smart licenses are not supported in controller mode.
