Licenses for QFX5200-32C Switch

Disaggregated Software Features That Require Licenses on the QFX Series

Disaggregated Software Feature Licenses on QFX5200 Switches

The disaggregated software feature licenses are only applicable for QFX5200-32C devices. For QFX5200-48Y devices, the base software features are included with the device. Additional licenses are required only for premium and advanced features.

The Junos OS software is disaggregated from the hardware. With disaggregated Junos OS, you can purchase the following feature licenses, which are available on a perpetual basis:

  • Junos Base Software (JBS) license:

    Includes basic layer 2 switching, basic layer 3 routing, multicast, automation, programmability, Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) and basic monitoring.

    You must purchase the JBS license to use basic functions, but you do not need to install the license key in Junos OS Release 15.1X53-D30. JBS basic functions work with this release without installing the license key. However, you will need to install the license key in a future release of Junos OS to be determined, so make sure to retain the authorization code you received from the license portal to generate a license key for the JBS license. If the license is not installed, system triggers the log messages.

    The products supported by the Juniper Agile Licensing (JAL) portal includes: QFX series, SRX Series, EX Series, NFX, vBNG, vMX, vSRX, and ACX. For other Juniper products (SPACE, JSA, SBR Carrier, Screen OS and so on) access the License Management System (LMS).

  • Junos Advanced Software (JAS) license:

    Includes features supported in JBS license and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), and Virtual Extensible Local Area Network (VXLAN). You need to install the license key to use these features.

  • Junos Premium Software (JPS) license:

    Includes features supported in JAS license and Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) feature set. You need to install the license key to use these features.

For information about how to purchase a software feature license, contact your Juniper Networks sales representative.

If you try to configure a feature that is not licensed, you will receive syslog messages saying that you are using a feature that is licensable and that you do not possess a license for the feature. If you try to commit configuration changes for a feature that is not licensed, you will receive a commit warning saying that you have exceeded the allowed license limit for the feature. The feature will commit and be usable but this action violates EULA agreement.
