All current Cisco Meraki products require valid licensing to operate. All licensing related operations can be performed from the Organization > Configure > License Info page of the Meraki Dashboard. For more information about the License Info page specifically, please refer to Meraki’s License Info Page article.
Having licenses allows your organisation’s cloud-based online Dashboard, hosted by Meraki, to connect to and configure & manage all your Meraki devices. All devices are controlled under a single pane of glass in the dashboard.
Everything is included in the cloud dashboard, which is just one license SKU.
Given the range of use cases that can be solved, there are three license options for the MX appliance that provides customers the flexibility to select the license most appropriate for their intended use.
Secure SD-WAN Plus
|“All I require is Auto VPN and a firewall”
|“I connect directly to the Internet so need a UTM too”
|“My business is reliant on SaaS/IaaS/DC served apps”
The licensing structure for MX appliances is the same as that of any other Meraki device – 1:1 ratio of devices to licenses. Pair your chosen MX appliance(s) with the relevant license for your use case.
|Advanced security license
|Secure SD-WAN Plus license
All Cisco Meraki licenses include warranty, 24×7 Enterprise support, software and feature updates, and cloud dashboard access.
New features come at no extra cost—and there are no per-user license fees.
