We have NMS version 15, could we upgrade to 18 version with the same license? Probably support should generate us a new license for new version, but is it possible to do it without buying new license, just because of new NMS version?

Thank you.

The license key has no dependancy on software release.  You can upgrade the system without need a new license.
