What happens to my existing network licenses on Maintenance Subscription?
If you have products with network licenses on Maintenance Subscription as of January 31, 2016, you will continue to own your perpetual license and retain the Maintenance Subscription benefits associated with those products. You will also be able to renew your Maintenance Subscription when the time comes.
What if I need additional network licenses after January 31, 2016?

What is a network subscription?

Is network subscription right for me?

How will network subscriptions work?
Network subscriptions will leverage the same licensing file technology used for perpetual network licenses. You will be able to request a network license file for products on network subscription that can then be merged with the existing license file running on your license server.
Network subscription and perpetual network licenses will be capable of running on the same license server. The combined network subscription and perpetual network license files will support the use of Autodesk products of up to the maximum number of users or seats connected to the server network at a given time.
The Network License Manager (NLM) utility will work with network subscriptions; no new utilities are needed. In addition, most reporting tools are expected to report usage information for network subscriptions.
As network subscriptions are expected to leverage the same licensing technology and tools as perpetual network licenses, system administrators and IT managers will be able to quickly set up, deploy, use, and manage network subscriptions with minimal changes from today.
