Meraki MX70 Security Device License and Support

Genuine Cisco Meraki Product

A license is required for the MX70 Firewall / Security Device. The license permits the product to function, connect to the Dashboard, gives support and warranty.
The MX70-HW is no longer available as it is EOL.



Enterprise or Advanced Security License for Meraki MX70 security devices.

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.


Advanced Security

“All I require is Auto VPN and a firewall” “I connect directly to the Internet so need a UTM too”

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.

Enterprise license OR Advanced security license     Secure SD-WAN Plus license not available for EOL MX Devices

All Cisco Meraki licenses include warranty, 24x7 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.

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.

MX Licensing Options

The MX Security Devices and the Z accessories have licenses on a per-model basis, so every MX or Z model has a corresponding license. Please note that these licenses are non-transferrable between different models.

    That might be worth up to about 5% to you.

    We can email you a quote same day, but it might take a couple of days to confirm the details. We WILL need the details of the end user of the purchase if that isn't you. We won't contact them, though!

    So if you have the time, you might want to ask MerakiStore for a quote instead of checking out today.
