Cisco Integrated Services Routers Licensing - 3945E as example

1. Situation

My work environment has a Cisco Route 3945E which is running following IOS:

Cisco IOS Software, C3900e Software (C3900e-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.1(4)M4, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 15.1(1r)T5, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

Technology Package License Information for Module:'c3900e' 

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Technology    Technology-package           Technology-package
              Current       Type           Next reboot  
------------------------------------------------------------------
ipbase        ipbasek9      Permanent      ipbasek9
security      None          None           None
uc            None          None           None
data          None          None           None

I will need to figure out how to enable IP SLA feature. 

2. Research

Based Cisco IOS Packaging Model, Data IOS will be the rightt package if IP SLA feature will need for our environment.
 IOS Packaging Model for 1900, 2900 and 3900 ISRs
