This document outlines the procedure for migrating an existing RUCKUS IoT Controller license to RUCKUS IoT Controller 126.96.36.199. RUCKUS IoT Controller 188.8.131.52 is a fresh install. There is no direct upgrade path from 1.8.2.. MT for new subscription/license.
Licensing Model Prior to the 184.108.40.206 release
The RUCKUS IoT Controller supported the AP-based licensing model prior to 220.127.116.11, in which licenses were consumed by approved APs. In this licensing model, there was an RTU license, temporary/trial license, AP capacity licenses, support licenses, etc. These licenses were coming with either permanent validity or with a custom expiry date.
Licensing Model from 18.104.22.168 release
From the 22.214.171.124 release onwards, RUCKUS provides support for the Device-based licensing model instead of AP-based licensing. The Device Licenses are of three types as below:
• Core - The Core license is a perpetual license bound to the serial number of the controller. The duration of this license is perpetual.
• Instance - The Instance license is based on a subscription and maintains a tenure of 1, 3, or 5 years. Instance licenses are offered in three types: Insight, Premium, and Base.
• Device Capacity- To access the connected devices, after installing a Core license, you can purchase a Device Capacity license. The Device Capacity license is based on a subscription and maintains a tenure of 1, 3, or 5 years. Each device capacity license consists of 250 devices, so if you purchase three device capacity licenses, then you will be able to add 3*250=750 devices to the RUCKUS IoT Controller.
