Licensing Packaging :
The Cisco Catalyst 9000 family of switches introduces a new and simplified licensing package in the form of base and add-on licenses.
The perpetual licensing package includes the Network Essentials and Network Advantage licensing options that are tied to the hardware.
Between them the base licensing packages cover switching fundamentals management automation troubleshooting and advanced switching features.
These Network licenses are perpetual.
The subscription licensing package includes the Cisco DNA Essentials and Cisco DNA Advantage options. In addition to on-box capabilities
the features available with this package provide Cisco innovations on the switch as well as on Cisco DNA Center.
The Cisco DNA subscription licenses are mandatory at the time of configuration.
License consumption is easily determined by the package itself. While perpetual licenses are always permanent and without an expiration date
subscription licenses have to be purchased for a 3-, 5-, or 7-year term (and hence are also known as term-based licenses).
Table 12 shows the combinations of perpetual and subscription licenses that must be purchased.
