Catalyst 9200 license needed for plain switching?

Hi,

 

I'm searching for a replacement of a C2960X stack, small company with only 2 switches. I was thinking about the 9200 line, but when calling TechData they told me I need to purchase yearly DNA license for it. My thought was, ok, there is Essentials and Advantage, these should be perpetual, but why do I need all the DNA or SD-WAN access stuff what ever. The customer doesn't need fancy guy or central management, just a stack and a CLI :)

 

Do I really need to sell them yearly licenses for switches where only 1% of features are used? (Vlan, trunk, port-security, stacking)

 

Thanks

Michael

When last time  you read about Catalyst 1000, Can you share the link?

 

I only know that cisco has introduced Cat 9K switches in past.
