OT Link Platform Offline License Activation

Estimated reading time: 1 minute

A OT Link Platform license initially is valid for a 15-day trial. During the trial period, notifications within OT Link Platform will indicate the remaining number of days that the trial license is valid. If the device is going offline or will no longer be used, the same license key can be deactivated and installed on the new device. The license can be activated online as well as offline. The same key works if the device is online or offline. 

Offline License Activation Overview

If you are connected to the internet, see License Management for instructions for activating a license.

  • OT Link Platform does not require Ethernet or an internet connection during installation. The installation works completely offline. However, Ethernet (not internet) is required during first bootup, after the installation is complete.
  • OT Link Platform license activation can be performed without being connected to the internet.
