Cisco Meraki MX70 Licensing and Renewal Licenses
Subscription licenses and renewals for the MX70, Cloud-Managed Security Appliance for Small Branch Deployments
Sorry, this product is no longer available, replaced by the MX80.
Every Meraki hardware component requires a cloud license to be managed.
Meraki devices use the Meraki cloud for centralized management and control. The Meraki cloud is licensed on a "per device, per year" basis. Each organization is licensed for a certain number of devices through a termination date.
Licenses are sold separately from the hardware. For example, you could upgrade from the MR16 to the MR24 without buying new licenses. The same will apply for new products that are released in the future.
In general, all Meraki products follow the same licensing model. The primary difference between them is that with all wireless access points (MR series) the license is the same for all hardware models, whereas with the switches (MS series) and security appliance line (MX series) each hardware model has a different license. Example: the LIC-ENT-1YR (1 year enterprise MR license) applies to any of the MR access points. The LIC-MS220-24-1YR (1 year enterprise MS220-24 license) applies to the MS220-24 model. The LIC-ENT-MX64-1YR (1 year enterprise MX64 license) applies to the MX64.
