Aruba is the only one I can really think of.  Juniper is actually moving more towards Open Source, but we will see how that pans out.

At least they don't charge you to use third party optics like some vendors ;)

As far as I can tell this only applies for DNA licenses, everything else is perpetual. I'm going to do some more digging though but I have a feeling this is something that's being blown out of proportion because Cisco won't open up a bit more about what's tied to Smart licenses and what's not.

When people post "dirt" on what companies are doing I always take it with a grain of salt but regardless of the accuracy of what's above I have my own reasons that I don't pressure people to go out and buy their switches & routers.

That's fine. I still want to make sure that it's just DNA center stuff that needs a Smart license :)
