    I am doing some research on Juniper and Cisco Boxes. One thing which always considerable is the matter of Licensing.
    Cisco Offers Smart Licensing Feature which is applied to Card/Box Capacity and Feature and we need to have an account on Internet access on the box.
    I wonder does Juniper require this feature.
    As far as I understand for Support there is Subscription based license which is tiered based on Years of service.
    I want to ask Is this applicable for Feature of a card or Not? Specifically on cards of Juniper MX960 ?
    Thank you for help and support
    I asked this in "Ask the Expert" section of this forum as well

    On the MX series for any feature licenses you have they get installed via cli onto the device.

    • You will register the device and the purchase code on the Juniper licensing web site.
    • This gives you an activation code for the feature.
    • You then apply this via the cli on the device itself
    • No communication from the device to the internet or Juniper is needed
