Cisco 3300 Series Mobility Services Engine Licensing and Ordering
Guide for Context-Aware Mobility Software, and Adaptive wIPS
(For 6.0 SW Release and later)
®
This Cisco 3300 Series Mobility Services Engine (MSE) licensing and ordering guide presents guidelines
and information for ordering the Cisco Mobility Services Engine (MSE), Cisco Context-Aware Mobility
software and Adaptive Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (wIPS) software licenses. In addition to
providing step-by-step instructions for ordering the MSE and ordering, downloading, and installing
software licenses for the MSE, this document also provides instructions for ordering upgrade and spare
licenses. For more information about Product Authorization Key (PAK) certificates, please see
Appendix A.
Overview
The Cisco 3300 Series Mobility Services Engine is an open platform that provides a new approach for the delivery of
mobility services to enable mobile business applications. A combination of hardware and software, the Mobility
Services Engine is an appliance-based solution that supports a suite of software services to provide centralized and
scalable service delivery. Cisco Mobility Services are a set of value-added network services that consolidate
intelligence from various points in the network to enable and optimize the delivery of business mobility applications.
Service licenses currently available are:
●
Cisco Context-Aware Mobility software: A mobility service that integrates with the Cisco Unified Wireless
Network to capture and integrate into business processes and applications detailed contextual information
such as location, temperature, humidity, availability, and so on. For more information of Cisco Context-Aware
Mobility software, visit http://www.cisco.com/go/contextaware.
●
Cisco Adaptive Wireless Intrusion Prevention System: A mobility service that integrates with the Cisco
Unified Wireless Network to detect rogue access points, clients, and over-the-air attacks. For more
information of Cisco Adaptive wIPS, visit http://www.cisco.com/go/wips.
Ordering the Mobility Services Engine and Software Licenses
The Cisco MSE hosts the Cisco Context-Aware Mobility software and Adaptive wIPS software. Each of these
functions requires a software license. Following is an overview of hardware and software SKUs associated with the
Cisco MSE:
●
Hardware SKU
◦
AIR-MSE-3350-K9-Cisco 3350 Mobility Services Engine
◦
AIR-MSE-3310-K9-Cisco 3310 Mobility Services Engine
Mobility Services Engine Management Software SKU
The management interface for the Mobility Services Engine and the services running on the MSE platform is the
Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) software. Customers need the WCS interface to manage the MSE and the
services running on it. For the SKUs required to manage the Mobility Services Engine, refer to the WCS Ordering
Guide.

Data Sheet
Context-Aware Mobility Software SKUs
Cisco Context-Aware Mobility software licenses are based on the number of Wi-Fi client and Wi-Fi tag devices
tracked. The Cisco Mobility Services Engine 3350 allows for the tracking of up to 18,000 devices (combined count of
Wi-Fi clients and Wi-Fi tags) and the Mobility Services Engine 3310 allows for the tracking of up to 2000 devices
(combined count of Wi-Fi clients and Wi-Fi tags). The licenses may be combined in any order to arrive at the number
of devices needed to be tracked for a context-aware deployment. For example, from the following SKUs, AIR-CAS3KC-K9, AIR-CAS-12KC-K9 and AIR-CAS-1KT-K9 may be combined to arrive at a license for tracking 15,000 Wi-Fi
clients and 1000 Wi-Fi tags on a MSE 3350.
●
AIR-CAS-1KC-K9-License for tracking 1000 client devices
●
AIR-CAS-3KC-K9-License for tracking 3000 client devices
●
AIR-CAS-6KC-K9-License for tracking 6000 client devices
●
AIR-CAS-12KC-K9-License for tracking 12,000 client devices
●
AIR-CAS-1KT-K9-License for tracking 1000 tag devices
●
AIR-CAS-3KT-K9-License for tracking 3000 tag devices
●
AIR-CAS-6KT-K9-License for tracking 6000 tag devices
●
AIR-CAS-12KT-K9-License for tracking 12,000 tag devices
Adaptive Wireless IPS Software SKUs
Cisco Adaptive Wireless IPS software licenses are based on the number of full-time monitoring access points (often
referred to as “monitor mode acess points”) that are deployed in the network. The Cisco Mobility Services Engine
3350 allows for the tracking of up to 3000 monitoring access points and the Mobility Services Engine 3310 allows for
the tracking of up to 2000 monitoring access points. The licenses may be combined to arrive at the number of
monitor mode access points required to run the Adaptive wIPS deployment. For example, from the following SKUs,
AIR-WIPS-AP-5, AIR-WIPS-AP-25 and AIR-WIPS-AP-500 may be combined to arrive at a license for 530 monitor
mode access points.
●
AIR-WIPS-AP-5-Supports five monitor mode Cisco access points
●
AIR-WIPS-AP-25-Supports 25 monitor mode Cisco access points
●
AIR-WIPS-AP-100-Supports 100 monitor mode Cisco access points
●
AIR-WIPS-AP-500-Supports 500 monitor mode Cisco access points
●
AIR-WIPS-AP-2000-Supports 2000 monitor mode Cisco access points
The 3300 series Mobility Services Engine now supports coexistence of multiple mobility services on the same
appliance. Both 3310 and 3350 MSE can support Adaptive Wireless IPS and Context Aware on the same appliance.
See Table 1 for the allowed license combination when running both services on the MSE 3350 platform and for the
allowed license combination when running both services on the MSE 3310 platform.
