IP Office Licenses

Various IP Office features and applications require activation with license keys entered into the system's configuration. Each License key is a unique 32-character code based on the feature being activated and the Feature Key Dongle (System SD Card) serial number.

The following licenses are available (see also Adding Licenses):
