Adding a License

When you first deploy your Konnect™ access server, it operates in an unlicensed Evaluation Mode, that allows you to set up one device for the administator user so they can securely manage the Konnect™ deployment. Before you can add additional devices to your Konnect™ access server, a valid software license key is required.

We offer two types of licenses:

  • a Free license that allows you to evaluate Konnect™ for as long as you want and to use Konnect™ for private, non-commercial deployments with up to 3 devices. This is the ideal solution if you want to try out Konnect™ in your home lab before committing to a large-scale deployment, or want to set up remote access to your home when you are on the road.
  • a Commercial Use license allows you to use Konnect™ for work, with up to 250 devices across any number of users as you see fit. This license type also entitles you to commercial support and priority updates.

For large-scale deployments with offer an Enterprise License tier. If you are interested in an enterprise license, please contact our enterprise sales team to get a personalised quote.
