SIMUL8 Network - Concurrent User Licensing

SIMUL8 Network allows you to install SIMUL8 across an unlimited number of PCs across your organization's site, or even across your entire organization.



SIMUL8 Network Main Benefits


Install on ANY machine

SIMUL8 can be installed on any number of PCs that can access the SIMUL8 server licensing controller.


LAN and WAN options available

SIMUL8 FlexLM comes with a variety of licenses management tools which identify under-utilized licenses and provides the insight to remix or reallocate them to other locations or projects, saving the need for further software expenditure.


Network license for your organization's site (Local Area Network)

SIMUL8 can be installed on any number of PCs that can access the SIMUL8 server licensing controller.

When a user starts SIMUL8 on one of these PCs it asks the server for permission to run. The server looks at the total number of SIMUL8 licenses running . If this is less than the number of licenses owned then the user's PC starts SIMUL8. If not, then the user is given a message about waiting until later because too few licenses are available.

For users who need to make use of a laptop away from the network there is a process for "checking out" from the server so that the user can make use of one of the licenses while disconnected and traveling.


Wide Area Network options

SIMUL8 Wide Area Network (WAN) uses Flex LM Technology to install SIMUL8 across a global network where users can access the software from any location in the world.



Monitor Usage

Flex LM uses a compliance manager which allows your Information Technology department to monitor the usage of the licenses throughout the different locations, and who specifically is using the licenses. It also allows users to ‘check’ licenses away from the network and use when off-site. Anyone with access to the license manager can ‘force’ licenses to be checked back in, or set timescales for auto check-ins.

License Management

SIMUL8 FlexLM comes with a variety of license management tools, providing IT (or the license custodian) with reports on license utilization (including user ID and locations). This helps determine the optimal number of concurrent licenses required by teams. It also identifies under-utilized licenses and provides the insight to remix or reallocate them to other locations or projects, saving the need for further software expenditure.
