Answer
The IdentiFi Wireless Controller can be in the following licensing modes:

Unlicensed - When the IdentiFi Wireless Controller is not licensed, it operates in ‘demo mode.’ In ‘demo mode,’ the IdentiFi Wireless Controller allows you to operate as many IdentiFi Wireless APs as you want, subject to the maximum limit of the platform type. In demo mode, you can use only the b/g radio, with channels 6, 11, and auto. 11n support and Mobility are disabled in demo mode.

Licensed with a temporary activation key (Evaluation) - A temporary activation key comes with a regulatory domain. With the temporary activation key, you can select a country from the domain and operate the IdentiFi Wireless APs on any channel permitted by the country. A temporary activation key allows you to use all software features. You can operate as many IdentiFi Wireless APs as you want, subject to the maximum limit of the platform type. A temporary activation key is valid for 90 days. Once the 90 days are up, the temporary key expires. You must get a permanent activation key and install it on the IdentiFi Wireless Controller. If you do not install a permanent activation key, the IdentiFi Wireless Controller will start generating event logs every 15 minutes, indicating that an appropriate license is required for the current software version. In addition, you will not be able to edit the Virtual Network Services (VNS) parameters.

Licensed with permanent activation key - A permanent activation key is valid for an infinite period. In addition, unlike the temporary activation key, the permanent activation key allows you to operate a stipulated number of the IdentiFi Wireless APs, depending upon the platform type. If you want to connect additional IdentiFi Wireless APs, you have to install a capacity enhancement key. You may even have to install multiple capacity enhancement keys to reach the IdentiFi Wireless Controller’s limit.

Subscription Based  -  Full AP Capacity Upgrades for V2110. Support for additional controllers will be extended with v10.11.02 (Scheduled for August 2016) Unrestricted RADAR licenses - See also: Subscription Licensing in NetSight Extreme Management Center
