About The Customer
Since 1988, Vector is a premier independent producer of software tools and embedded components for the development of electronic systems and their networking with many different systems from Controller Area Networks (CAN) to Automotive Ethernet. The solut
The Challenge

As a trailblazer for the future of mobility and a leading innovator behind ingenious technologies for electric car charging, safety and security concepts, Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles, and the AUTOSAR Adaptive Platform, Vector’s business depends on selling many thousands of licenses every year. Protecting its technology from piracy is a challenge that Vector faces head-on with their Vector Network Interfaces (VNIs) and licenses associated with a combination of Wibu-Systems hardware and software containers. Integrating this system into the production landscape and streamlining its delivery called for a leaner and standardized solution, built right into the company’s sales processes.

The Solution

In mid-2018, Vector turned to CodeMeter for a holistic system coupling CmActLicenses, bound with SmartBind® to the target devices for ease of use, and CmDongles for software with more stringent security and mobility needs. A key feature is the use of CmActLicenses, stored in and bound to Vector’s unique VNIs.

The system’s backbone for license creation, delivery, and management is CodeMeter License Central, fully integrated with Vector’s SAP system by Wibu-Systems’ dedicated partner, Informatics, an Austrian centre of excellence for SAP. Wibu-Systems and Informatics bring together many years of experience with SAP and CodeMeter to bear on their shared projects.

Operational Impact
  • With CodeMeter integrated, Vector can manage its licenses centrally from the comfort of CodeMeter License Central dashboard, making for leaner support and sales processes.

  • As the license and entitlement management system is cleverly connected with SAP, licenses can now be created and delivered immediately upon purchase of a product. Users can access, activate, and start enjoying their Vector software without any delay.
