Tell me about Meraki’s licensing. What is this, and why do I need it?
All current Cisco Meraki products require valid licensing to operate. This is done on a “per device, per year” basis. The MX series has two licenses. They are Enterprise and Advanced Security. These licenses are available in 1, 3, and 5 year options. They can be bought through your authorized Meraki partner.
First, the Enterprise License: With it you’re getting excellent stateful inspection with VPN capabilities. This will do a good job of protecting your business from direct intrusion.

The Meraki MX64 has been discontinued. However, the MX67 is a great alternative!
What is Meraki Advanced Security License?
For starters, this one offers a lot more protection. It is an all-around security package that can protect you from nearly any attack. It includes: Intrusion Detection / Prevention, Anti-Virus and Anti-Phishing. Additionally, you get Content / Web-Search Filtering and Advanced Malware Protection.
Lastly, remember that without this licensing, your Meraki will cease to function. 30 days prior to your license’s expiration date, the administrators on your account will be notified. Then, another e-mail will be sent 3 days prior to expiration. An account expiration banner will also be displayed in the Meraki dashboard at this time. But, you can reactivate your account at any point in the future. To do this (after it expires), just add the necessary number of valid licenses.
