Emerald Management Suite version 6 additional MBR licenses (All editions)

MBR CountPrice Per MBR (USD)One-Time Price (USD)
10000 or moreCall for pricing

MBRs can be purchased in increments of 100 with 200 MBRs being the lowest single MBR purchase available.

MBRs (Master Billing Records) represent active customers (Master Accounts) within Emerald who receive a bill for service. Each MBR can have multiple recurring services such as network access accounts, email accounts, web hosting accounts..etc billed to the same account holder (MBR). Only active MBRs count against the licensed MBR limit. In addition when MBRs are used for non-recurring prepaid services only those MBRs who currently have accessible services with time remaining/non expired count against the licensed MBR limit.

For example a typical business customer may have several services for each individual within the company however since all of these services are billed together on the same bill to the same location they only consume a single MBR license. MBR licenses are automatically freed and available for new accounts should the MBR be closed and inactivated.

All product license fees including base cost of Emerald and additional MBRs are perpetual one-time purchases. There are no recurring fees to continue to use software or receive maintenance updates. For optional yearly support pricing click here.

RadiusNT and RadiusX version 5 for Windows and Linux

EditionServersOne-Time Cost Per Server (USD)
RadiusNT/X Standard1$1795
RadiusNT/X Professional1$2695
RadiusNT/X Enterprise1$3595

RadiusNT/X is licensed on a strictly per server basis. There are no other license restrictions on the number of CPUs, accounts, access devices (RADIUS Clients) or concurrent sessions. For every copy of RadiusNT/X purchased you may purchase an additional copy of the same edition at half price as long as it's used in a backup role.

Note that a RadiusNT/X only license entitles you to use the Emerald interface to manage accounts, perform incident tracking, configure RADIUS functionality and perform auditing and reporting of RADIUS authentication and accounting data. Use of Emerald is completely optional and not required in cases where RadiusNT/X is to be integrated with an existing account management system.

When a RadiusNT/X only license is used with Emerald - all extraneous billing related functions of Emerald are unavailable. You have the option of upgrading your license at any time to enable and utilize Emeralds billing features.

New Customers purchasing Emerald are entitled to 60 days of complimentary product support from date of purchase.

Support offerings are based on a single site/technical contact and not affected by the number or type of IEA Software products installed throughout your organization managed by a central contact. For example if you manage 10 RadiusNT servers and 20 Air Marshal servers the cost is the same as if you manage a single RadiusNT server. If your organization is distributed and each location has its own administrative staff separately responsible for managing IEA Software products each location would need to purchase a support contract.

If you are an Emerald customer with more than 5,000 active MBRs please contact us for support contract pricing.

There is no limit on the number of support incidents that can be opened in a given year.
