Positioning Application: How many no hardware licences can I have?

  • PosApp (SimGEN / SimREPLAYplus / SimREPLAY)
  • There is no limit to the quantity of licences that can be requested.
  • On request, Spirent will provide No Hardware licences free of charge.
    • Such requests must be received during the system’s support period.
  • However, with a free no hardware licence the installed version of PosApp will cease to be operational after the licence expiry date.
    • The licence expiry is linked to the support contract of your simulator hardware
    • For this reason it is always essential to specify the simulator model and serial number to which the no hardware licence shall be associated
  • No Hardware licences may also be purchased
  • Such licences permit continued use of the installed version of PosApp after the licence expiry date
    • In the same way as the Hardware-locked licence that is provided as standard with each system.
  • One licence shall be provided per purchase
  • You may purchase as many no hardware licences as are necessary


  • The No Hardware licence is an optional licence provided on request.
  • It is locked to the details of a PC chosen by the user and therefore must be installed on that chosen PC
    • So that the licence details can be authenticated when the application is started.
  • The user may only run scenarios in ‘no hardware’ mode, i.e. PosApp menu option [Options-->Control Options-->No hardware mode].
  • This can be of benefit for ‘off-line’ scenario development or efficient post-processing of scenario data using PosApp’s ‘turbo’ mode feature.
  • Although no hardware licences permit you to work 'offline' from your actual simulator hardware they must still be associated to that hardware capability
  • Spirent therefore keep a record not only of how many no hardware licences have been issued but also to which systems the licences are linked to
  • When you submit a no hardware licence request always ensure you reference the model and serial number of an associated simulator 
  • More details about licences, how they work, how they can be requested, are contained in a document called "PosApp read me.pdf"
    • This is provided in the "Downloads" area of the CSC support website, alongside the PosApp software install pack download
