The Cisco Catalyst 9300, 9400, and 9500 Series introduce new packaging that includes vastly simplified base network packages (Network Essentials and Network Advantage) and term-based software packages (Cisco DNA Essentials, Cisco DNA Advantage) as add-ons. The Cisco DNA packages, in addition to on-box capabilities, also unlock additional functionality in Cisco DNA Center, enabling controller-based software-defined automation in your network.
License consumption is further simplified to following two combinations:
Essentials: This consists of Perpetual Network Essentials and a term-based (3-, 5-, or 7-year) Cisco DNA Essentials package.
Advantage: This consists of Perpetual Network Advantage and a term-based (3-, 5-, or 7-year) Cisco DNA Advantage package.
Note that it is not required to deploy Cisco DNA Center just to use one of the above packages. Refer to https://switching.cisco.com/faqs for additional details about the Essentials and Advantage packages.
Refer to tables 7 and 8 in Catalyst 9500 datasheet for features available in the listed packages.
