Getting answer to questions is difficult as Broadcom removed the layer of sales and sales support staff that used to provide this and shifted the responsibility onto distributors and partners. Turn around for licenses/sales though is reasonably good.with regards pricing/licenses Broadcom have dropped all license types except subscription licenses. There are no maintenance licenses any more. If you want to maintain your software you must buy a subscription license which basically means you are buying the software over again - every year. Subscription licenses which contain the right to use are considerably more expensive than maintenance licenses. So your 1 year price at 1.5 times the 3 year price is right while a new 3 year price will be 4.5 times your old 3 year price. There are no discounts, special deals, etc.
While simplifying the whole system is to be applauded the consequences on existing customers with perpetual licenses is severe and the lack of a practical migration to the new approach is not good, especially as there has been nothing given for customers to justify these changes internally. Hope this helps.
