Do I need to purchase NBX Phone Licenses
along with the NBX Phones?
In order to lower the total cost of ownership for small
businesses, the NBX V3000 has 15 Group 2 Phone Licenses included
in the base platform. Customers do not need to activate a keycode
to utilize, as they are embedded on the system. The Group 2 Phone
License allows a 3Com 3102 Business Phone (3C10402A) to be connected
to the NBX V3000.
For example, if you purchase twenty 3102 Business
Phones, you will only be required to purchase five additional Group
2 phone licenses (3C10411) in order to connect all twenty phones
to the NBX V3000. These embedded licenses are included on the NBX
V3000 hardware only, and are not available on the NBX 100 or SS3
Other phones such as the 3101 Basic Phone (3C10401A)
and 3101SP Basic Phone with Speaker (3C10401SPKRA) require a separate
Group 1 Phone License (3C10411) in order to connect to the NBX V3000.
For example, in order to connect twenty 3101 Basic Phones to the
NBX V3000, you will be required to purchase twenty Group 1 Phone
Licenses. Same rules apply to the 3105 Attendant Console (3C10405A)
