Multi-Gigabit Fabric Configuration


Most new modules include MGF and legacy links.
Interfaces will appear as two internal connections to the same
module (SM1/0 and SM1/1 for example).

Configuration for the module-side MGF connection is


performed on the router-side legacy connection.
Configuration information is passed to the module on this
interface.
The router-side MGF connection is a layer-2 trunk port and is
not directly configurable.

Layer 3 configuration on the router is handled with


VLANs.
Note: MGF configuration not available when a HWIC4ESW or HWIC-9ESW is in the system.

ISR G2 Licenses - Customers Feedback

Lack of end to end tool adds


complexity to deployment
It is difficult to deal with

ISR G2 Built-In Right to Use Licenses


IOS universal image ships with Built-In Right to Use
Licenses. Evaluation licenses become Righto Use
t
after the Evaluation Period (60 days) is exhausted.
Licenses in ISR G2:
Permanent - requires Software Activation License
Evaluation - New EULA accepted during first 60 days
Right to Use - New EULA accepted Automatically available after initial
60 days of Evaluation Licenses Customers must buy a license from
Cisco

Platforms:

Supported in ALL ISR G2 platforms:


86x, 88x, 89x, 19xx, 29xx, 39xx(E)

No changes planned to ISR G1s or any other SRTG platforms.

Right to Use Licenses


What Changes and What Remains the Same?
IOS:
Existing EULA modified to reflect customer expectation to pay (true-up) for licenses after
60 days.
New global configuration CLI : li
cense accept end user agreement
New output for show
license
No changes on existing MIBs same reporting/auditing

No changes to packaging (universal image & new package structure)

Operations:
Honor based system as known in ISR G1s

Quarterly true-ups (trust-based) with large SP/Enterprise accounts to pay for license
overages/deltas. True-ups driven by account teams.

Same manufacturing process


Routers ordered with licenses upfront continue to ship with
permanent licenses (in bundles or a la carte)
