Flex Software License for EX Series Switches

EX2300, EX3400, and EX4300

EX2300, EX3400, EX4300 series switches support Flex Software License Model as well as the non-Flex Software License Model.

EX Flex License Model

The Flex License Model supports both Flex Subscription and Flex Perpetual licenses. It is a Three-Tier licensing model. The tiers are Standard, Advanced, and Premium.

Premium license includes Junos features which are offered in the Advanced license.

The Advanced and Premium licenses are Class based, determined by the number of access ports on the switch. Class 1 (C1) switches have 12 ports, Class 2 (C2) switches have 24 ports, and Class 3 (C3) switches have 32 or 48 ports.

Customer support for Advanced and Premium Licenses is included with EX hardware support SKUs.

EX2300, EX3400, EX4300, and EX4400 for Flex Software Subscription License Model

EX Flex Subscription licenses are offered for one year, three year, and five year terms. In addition to Junos features, the Flex Advanced and Premium subscription licenses include Juniper Mist Wired Assurance and VNA or Marvis subscriptions.

Flex Advanced and Premium Subscription licenses allow license portability across EX2300, EX3400, EX4300, and EX4400 for the same Tier and Class of switches.

The following statements are applicable to EX2300, EX3400, EX4300, and EX4400 for flex software subscription model licensing without customer support:

  • Flex software subscription Advanced and Premium licenses include Wired Assurance and Virtual Network Assistant (Marvis) subscription.

  • Flex Premium subscription license includes Junos features which are offered in the Advanced Subscription license.

  • Flex subscription licenses are portable across EX2300, EX3400, EX4300, and EX4400 for the same Tier and Class of switches.

  • In a Virtual Chassis (VC) deployment, every VC member requires a Flex subscription feature license

  • There are no separate support SKUs for EX Flex Subscription licenses. Support for Advanced and Premium subscription licenses must included some level of EX hardware support SKUs, like CORE or Next Day or Same Day, and so on.

Flex Advanced and Premium subscription licenses are offered with and without EX hardware customer support.
