What are the differences between licenses of the old and new versions of iManager N2000 BMS NMS?
To adapt to the universal GTL License quoting methods in the industry, and to improve and standardize the platform support in our company, the paper authorization certificate is provided in the shipment stage. For the V2R9 version of iManager N2000 BMS product, the license is upgraded from the old version (provided with the V2R8 and the earlier version of BMS NMS) to the new version (provided with V2R9 and later version of BMS NMS).
The license of the new version differs from the old version in the following aspects:
1. The granularity of quoting and charging items become thinner, that is, the old NMS license code is divided into several particular quoting codes, with the consumption of each quoting items counted separately.
2. The broadband ports and narrowband ports are quoted and counted separately; for example, in the old version, every 60 xDSL ports consume a license, and every 100 narrowband ports consume a license. They are calculated and summed up to produce total quote and calculate consumption. In the new version, however, the license quoting and consumption calculation can be carried out per port type (can be divided into ADSL, VDSL, SHDSL, POTS, ISDN BRA and so on) separately.
3. The northbound interface is classified more specifically, and the quotes according to the user's port number option are added.
4. The quoting of 8750/ESR/MA5200/MA5200G devices is simplified, and their consumptions are decreased to bring benefit to users.
Note: The new version of license can only apply to V2R9 C02B056SPC001 patch or later version of BMS. If the version of site office is V2R9C02B056 version or earlier, the old version of license should continue to be used. If it has been upgraded to R9 version and have installed V2R9C02B056SPC001 patch, the user should re-apply for a new version license file.
