Licenses required for BIG-IQ system deployment

The licensing requirements for installing and configuring a BIG-IQ Virtual Edition (VE) depend on how you intend to use it.
  • To use a BIG-IQ VE to manage BIG-IP devices, you need a license.
  • To use a BIG-IQ VE as a license manager, you do not need a license.
  • To use a BIG VE as a data collection device (DCD) you do not need a license.
If you are installing and configuring a BIG-IQ DCD on a BIG-IQ 7000 Platform, you need a license.
