Meraki Licensing

What’s on Meraki Per-Device Licensing

Meraki is introducing per-device licensing: an opt-in licensing model with exclusive, new features and enhanced flexibility. The mission of simplicity is real at Meraki – from their hardware, to their cloud-hosted dashboard, to even their licensing models. This was the intent behind cotermination licensing model (co-term): to create one simple expiration date for all devices in a given organization, and reduce the complexity of licensing for our customers.


While co-term does serve many customers as intended, but this licensing wasn’t always a fit for every customer. For example, one simple expiration date didn’t quite work for customers with complex budgeting processes.


To address this, Meraki has released the per-device licensing model, available to both new and existing customers. This model offers the ultimate flexibility for licensing and offers a suite of new, exclusive features not offered on our co-term model:


    • License Devices Individually: Assign a license to a specific device (MR, MS, MX, MV, MG) or a network (in the case of vMX and SM licenses) and maintain a shared expiration date or separate expiration dates across devices, networks, or organizations.
    • Partial Renewals: Enjoy the ability to renew all your devices or a subset of devices, as you prefer.
    • Move Licenses Between Orgs: Org Admins (Read/Write) on multiple organizations are able to move a license (or licenses & devices together) between those organizations without calling Meraki support. This functionality is available through the dashboard and APIs.
    • 90 Day License Activation Window: You will have up to 90 days to claim and assign your licenses before they activate – giving you more lead time to deploy Meraki products.
    • APIs: APIs are available to claim, assign and move licenses. This will allow a greater level of automation and the ability to integrate with other systems.
    • Individual Device Shutdowns: If a license expires on a device, only that individual device or product will shut down (after the 30 grace period).


For more information about the per-device licensing model please refer to  Per-Device Licensing Overview documentation or this FAQ on Meraki licensing.
