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.
Meraki license includes: access to 24/7/365 support, hardware replacement under warranty, future firmware releases, one-time fixed cost for your network.
New features come at no extra cost—and there are no per-user license fees.

License Start Date
Licenses start consuming time from the date purchased, not the date they are added to an Organization.
Note: Waiting to activate a license in Dashboard does not delay its activation date. There is no time benefit gained from delaying an activation.
MS Licensing Options
The MS Switches have licenses on a per-model basis, so every MS model has a corresponding license, which includes variables such as number of ports and PoE availability. Please note that these licenses are non-transferrable between different switch models.
