    Bluesocket Licensing

     

    When you receive a new Bluesocket Access Point, or a replacement, it is necessary to activate the new or replacement key to obtain a license file.  The key will be emailed to both the registered owner of that serial number (if registered), and the email address provided on the order for the AP license.  If you have a new AP, but have not received a key by email, please contact your Reseller to obtain that key.

     

    The key(s) provided by email from ADTRAN or forwarded from the Reseller are not yet activated against any serial number(s).  The activation step must be performed to obtain the license file.

     

    To obtain the license your product, apply the keys to the hardware serial numbers you wish to license using the ADTRAN Licensor found at http://www.adtran.com/licensing.  The license process will also register the hardware to the email address tied to the ADTRAN login of the person who licenses it.  Please be sure the hardware owner performs the licensing process.

     

    The email will contain keys formatted as follows:
