What to do with Cisco Unified Border Element Enterprise Licenses?

Posted on 2016-08-25
Last Modified: 2016-09-27
Along with our Cisco 4331 ISR I received a few white cardboard envelopes marked
Unified Border Element Enterprise License - 5 sessions. When I look at the
paper inside I don't see a serial number or something that I would register.
Am I missing something? Is this just kind of honor system as to how
many calls should pass at once through the ISR? See the attached
pic. I want to obviously avoid having the ISR fail during a period
of high SIP voice traffic.

Check with your reseller.  The actual license file may need to be emailed or downloaded.  The CD and paperwork may for proof of purchase or a requirement that Cisco distribute the warranty info because it contains safety info.

Is there a way to view on the router how many SIP sessions/call legs can be processed at a time ?

The max number of possible calls is based on the number of lines you've subscribed from your telco.   The router usually does not see a max call count.
