How do we handle CASlicenses? How does the conversion from endpoint CASlicenses to access point licenses work?A.•  Upgrade to the 7.4 release. Existing CAS licenses will beautomatically converted to Location Services (notAdvanced Location Services) licenses based on theratio of 50 endpoints to one access point.For example, 50 CAS licenses will translate to one access pointLocation Services license. If the number of deployed access points ishigher than the number of access point Location licenses, you willreceive free conversion licenses for any remaining access points untilthe end of July 2013. Based on the scaling guidance, you may need topurchase additional MSE physical or virtual appliances.
