Router license support agreement

rsl networks

We are purchasing a Cisco ASR router and the company we are buying it through want to charge a yearly support fee of £1000 for the support of the license that increases the routers throughput, is this possible or even ethical?

Yes you can do that if you want to increase the throughput as below there are multiple options in ASR , just giving you the option if you need extra throughput , whether its a rip off is your own opinion :) Cisco is expensive and ASR are top range routers  , but if your going to use the 10gb wan ports I think from checking it before you need it  , we didn't have to , I have 150mb wan circuits connected to them working fine

Thanks for your comments Mark, I realise that we need to pay for the license to increase the throughput but I am asking if we need to pay the yearly £1000 for the support agreement for this license as this is something I have never heard of before.

I cant comment on individual company prices but personally from what I buy and support seems like a lot unless there supporting the whole ASR for that price for the year  , I just paid 1800 for 3 standard switches for next business day but that was over 3 years support ,  cant remember of my head what my ASR support was , why not call another local provider ask them what they charge so you have something to go on

Yes I think I will because the £1000 is just for the license that is additional to the maintenance agreement for the router.
