Right to Use (RTU) is an authorization mode for selling hardware capabilities, such as the number of flows, capacity, and ports. An RTU license cannot be migrated after being bound to a device. RTU is a part of hardware value, and its life cycle is the same as that of the corresponding hardware.

License Type


Functional license

A functional license controls the use of a specific function on a device. If a user wants to use a restricted function, the user must be authorized to use the function.

For example, if you want to use the distributed Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) gateway and BGP Ethernet VPN (EVPN) functions, you need to purchase the VXLAN enhanced function authorization license.

Resource license

Resource licenses control the number of resource items available to users. If a user wants to use a resource item, the user must be authorized to use the resource item.

Based on actual service requirements, you can use default resources supported by the product without purchasing resource licenses, or purchase one or more resource licenses. The resource quantity is the sum of all resources in all selected resource licenses.

Based on the resource type, resource licenses are classified into software and hardware resource licenses.

·         Software resource license: For example, the S5700 supports a maximum of 16 APs by default. To increase the number of APs that can be connected to the S5700, purchase the WLAN access controller AP resource license. This license is a software resource license.

·         Hardware resource license: RTU license For example, the default interface rate of the S5732-H24UM2CC is 2.5 Gbit/s. To increase the interface rate to 10 Gbit/s, purchase the RTU license for upgrading a 2.5GE interface to a 10GE interface.

For more information, you can refer to RTU Licenses for S5700
