I am preparing to make the move to ISR G2, and was looking around on the Cisco download site before I buy any hardware. I noticed I could download the WLC application for ISM 300 or SM 700/900 without requiring additional entitlement, but this was not the case for CUE 8.6. It tells me I need additional authorization to download.
My question is - what do I need? If I purchase a new or used blank SRE-700, do I need to just purchase a Smartnet contract for it to be entitled to the full download files of CUE 8.6, or something else? I know how the Mailbox, IVR and Port licenses work, and how to register the PAK's and install licenses for those, but what about the initial software - the full version of CUE 8.6 for the blank SRE?
