Tell me about Meraki MX68W licensing. What is this, and why do I need it?
Importantly, the Meraki MX68W Next-Gen firewall requires valid licensing to operate. These are on a “per device, per year” basis. The MX series has two licenses: Enterprise and Advanced Security. These are available in 1, 3, and 5 year options. They can be bought through your authorized Meraki partner.
Remember, without this licensing, your Cisco Meraki MX68W will cease to function. So, 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.
Lastly, an expiration banner will also be displayed in the Meraki dashboard during this time. However, you can reactivate your account at any point in the future, even after expiration. All you do is, just add the necessary number of valid licenses.
