Single Server License Key and Software for the Proxicast Virtual Cable Switchboard Server for Linux.  Includes 1 Year of Software Updates and Technical Support. Hardware and OS are not included.

The Virtual Cable Switchboard Server Software is a Linux-based application which provides address resolution and packet relay services for Proxicast's devices such as the PocketPORT which support Virtual Cable Mode (VCM) operation.  All VCM devices must interact with a Switchboard Server in order to establish a connection with other devices.

The accompanying Virtual Cable Switchboard Server Monitor web-application provides real-time monitoring of the Virtual Cable network and devices.

Public vs. Private Switchboards

All Proxicast customers are entitled to unlimited use of Proxicast's public Virtual Cable Switchboard Server (vc.pocketport.net).  

Customers wishing to operate their own private VCM Switchboard Server for security, performance, or availability reasons, must purchase a Switchboard Server license and install their own copy of the Virtual Cable Switchboard Server software.     



Each Switchboard Server requires an activation license key purchased from Proxicast.  

Server licenses are based on the maximum number of Gateways (e.g. PocketPORTs) that can be connected to the Switchboard concurrently.  Each Gateway can provide Internet access for multiple end-node devices connected to its local area network port(s).  

The Switchboard Server can support multiple independent VCM "networks", up to one-half of the concurrent Gateway license count since each VCM network requires a minimum of 2 Gateways.

License keys are valid on 1 server at a time but may be transferred between servers. License price includes 1 year of software updates and technical support.  Annual software maintenance for years 2 and beyond is 15% of the then current list price.
