Process

Introduction and General Philosophy

This page outlines the process by which Meraki coordinates and delivers its technical support responses to its customers. All processes outlined throughout this page apply to all Cisco Meraki products. Cisco Meraki's general philosophy is to:

  • Provide the highest quality and fastest possible support directly to Cisco Meraki customers.
  • Deliver customer satisfaction; internally, the Cisco Meraki support team is evaluated on their customer satisfaction metrics and are responsible for delivering consistent measured customer satisfaction.
  • Ensure Cisco Meraki authorized resellers are properly supported during field installations and troubleshooting activities, assuming the support request is in regards to a currently licensed Meraki product.
  • Effectively track and coordinate customer interactions and support activities.

Meraki Support Paradigm

  • All customers have an explicit support owner at all times. Normally this is a Cisco Meraki support team member; however, during pre-sales product it could be a Cisco Meraki Systems Engineer, VAR, or other field sales resource.
  • All legitimate support requests are the responsibility of Cisco Meraki Support until closure, unless there is explicit agreement between Meraki Support and the customer to transfer management of the case to another party.
  • Unless discussed and agreed to by Cisco Meraki Support, all customer support communication flows through the Cisco Meraki Support Team. This ensures:
    • Proper case management and recording
    • Proper follow up is achieved throughout case lifecycle
  • Customer satisfaction is the responsibility of the Cisco Meraki Support Team. If a case is reassigned to another Meraki resource, or a Cisco Meraki authorized reseller, Cisco Meraki reserves the right to expect timely response from that party or Merkai Support may to intervene to ensure customer satisfaction.

Privacy

The Cisco Meraki cloud management platform provides Support engineers with rich visibility into customer networks, resulting in faster diagnosis and resolution of cases. Our policies, outlined below, ensure that customer information is only accessed with prior consent, for the purposes of resolving a support case.

  • Support will not view customers' network configuration without prior consent
  • Support will not modify customers' network without prior consent
  • On rare occasions, support may view network status without prior notice to identify and diagnose system-wide issues. In these cases, network configuration information, including security settings and policies, will not be accessed.
  • Customers may remove Support's access to a network entirely by selecting "Prevent Meraki support from viewing this organization" in the Dashboard. Once checked, Support will not be able to access any aspect of the network. Customers will need to uncheck this box if technical assistance is required.

Hours and SLAs

Meraki support operates 24x7 support out of three support centers based in San Francisco, London, and Sydney.

Meraki has no support-specific licensing. Customers may open an unlimited number of support cases with the purchase of any device license, and can contact Meraki by phone or email.

Service providers and resellers who offer fully managed network services using Meraki devices likewise may open an unlimited number of support cases and interact directly with Meraki support centers. End customers (i.e. guests at a hotel) accessing networks supported or provided by service providers will contact the help desk for that Meraki Partner.

Cloud Infrastructure

Cisco Meraki’s cloud infrastructure is covered under a 99.99% SLA and the Cisco Meraki Infrastructure team manages it 24×7×365 to ensure high availability. In the extremely unlikely event of a cloud infrastructure interruption, user traffic and data continues to flow, and Meraki Support provides an emergency support SLA of 15 minutes.

Hours of Operation and SLA

Online / email support

  • Non-emergency support cases opened via email will be answered within one business day; usually within 2 hours.
  • Emergency support is offered exclusively via telephone to ensure that Meraki engineers can conduct appropriate troubleshooting and technical response.
Phone support
  • Phones at Meraki technical support centers are staffed 24×7×365 to ensure that one-on-one, phone-based technical support is always available from Meraki’s technical support engineers.

RMA Shipping

Meraki Support will ship new devices overnight from global distribution centers to a customer-specified location within 1 business day of any support case requiring the Advanced Replacement RMA of any device. Delivery times to certain countries or remote destinations can vary.

Pro Networks

For Hours/SLA information on legacy Meraki “Pro” networks, please contact Meraki Support.

Case Escalations

In the event that any case cannot be immediately resolved, Meraki Support will escalate that case to appropriate engineering personnel within Support, Product and Sales Engineering according to the following schedule and priorities. Generally, escalations are major issues that require notification and/or intervention by key portions of the company in order to ensure timely issue resolution.

Priority Levels

  • Priority 1 — Major Impact: The network is inoperable or the performance of the network is so severely reduced that Licensee cannot reasonably continue to operate the network because of the Error and the Error cannot be circumvented with a Workaround.
  • Priority 2 — Moderate Impact: The network’s performance is significantly degraded such that Licensee’s Use of the network as permitted is materially impaired, but the Error can be circumvented with a Workaround.
  • Priority 3 — Minor Impact: Licensee is experiencing a performance, operational, or functional Error that can be circumvented with a Workaround and the Error causes only minimal impact to the Licensee’s ability to Use the network as authorized.
  • Priority 4 — General Questions: There is no issue with network performance or operation. These include standard questions on network configuration or functionality, network enhancement requests, or documentation clarification.
Cisco Meraki will trigger case escalations as necessary by priority level to ensure timely resolution of all cases.

Policies

Product End-of-Life (EOL) Policy

Cisco Meraki may find it necessary to discontinue products for a number of reasons, including product line enhancements, market demands, technology innovation, or the products simply mature over time and are replaced by functionally richer products. We have set our end-of-life (EOL) policy to help customers better manage their product end-of-life transition.

When a product reaches EOL, Meraki is committed to communicating important milestones throughout the EOL period.  These notifications will include the initial EOL notification, the End of Sale (EOS) announcement, and the End of Support (EOST) dates, as well as other key information pertaining to Cisco Meraki products.

Any products being discontinued will be announced as End of Sale and identified on the Cisco Meraki website up to six months prior to the discontinuation and EOS date (also known as the last order date). On the end of sale date, discontinued hardware products are removed from the price list and are no longer available for purchase. Cisco Meraki typically provides support for a given product for a period of seven (7) years after the EOS date.  If the discontinued product is not available for replacement or repair of an in-warranty return, Cisco Meraki may replace the discontinued product with functionally equivalent hardware and transfer the remaining license term from the replaced product to the replacement hardware.

Although legacy Cisco Meraki products typically can connect to our cloud-based management software for the entire useful life of the product, following the EOST Date, some things may change, including the following:

  • Cisco Meraki cannot guarantee that legacy hardware products will be able to connect to the management software indefinitely following the EOST Date;
  • Cisco Meraki Technical Support may no longer troubleshoot the legacy hardware products;
  • Cisco Meraki may no longer issue firmware updates or patches for the legacy products; and
  • New software features available for the management software may not be compatible with the legacy hardware functionality or with the firmware running on the legacy hardware.

If either of the first two situations above occurs, then we will use our best efforts to provide the customer with a workable solution for upgrading from the legacy hardware and, failing that, will refund to the customer the value of any remaining license term attributable to the legacy hardware as of the EOST Date.

Nothing in this EOL Policy changes or diminishes the warranties Cisco Meraki provides for all of its hardware products.

Summary

  • End-of-Sale Announcement: Date of official end-of-sales notice, typically six months prior to the last order date.
  • End-of-Sale (EOS) Date: The last date to order the product through Cisco Meraki point-of-sale outlets. After this date, the product is no longer for sale via any channel.
  • End-of-Support (EOST) Date: The last date a product will be affirmatively supported by Cisco Meraki, typically seven years following the EOS Date.

Passive Information Collection

When you use or visit our Services, some information is collected automatically. For example, when you access our Services, we automatically collect your browser’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type, the nature of the device from which you are visiting the Services (e.g., a personal computer or a mobile device), identifiers for any handheld or mobile device that you may be using, the Web site that you visited immediately prior to accessing any Web-based Services, the actions you take on our Services, and the content, features, and activities that you access and engage with on our Services. We also may collect information regarding your interaction with e-mail messages from Meraki, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message.

We may collect this information passively using technologies such as standard server logs, cookies, and clear GIFs (also known as “Web beacons”). We use passively-collected information to administer, operate, maintain and improve our Services and our other services and systems and to provide content that is tailored to you.

If we link or associate any information gathered through passive means with Personal Information, or if applicable laws require us to treat any information gathered through passive means as Personal Information, we treat the combined information as Personal Information under this Policy. Otherwise, we use and disclose information collected by passive means in aggregate form or otherwise in a non-personally identifiable form. Please be aware that in the course of your use of the Services, websites or other services provided by third parties ("Third-Party Services"), including marketing or website optimization vendors, may set cookies on your hard drive or use other means of passively collecting information about your use of their Third-Party Services or other services or content. To do this, they may use first-party cookies (which are set by the same domain your browser is receiving data from) or third-party cookies (which are set by a different domain). Meraki also may make non-personally identifiable information available to Third-Party Services, and these Third-Party Services may collect such information, to assist such parties in understanding our users’ activities and usage patterns on the Services. If desired, you may use the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on to opt-out of having information collected by Google Analytics.

We do not have access to, or control over, the actions of Third-Party Services. Each provider of Third-Party Services uses information that it collects in accordance with its own privacy and security policies.

Additionally, please be aware that Google and other third-party vendors may place or recognize one or more unique cookies on your computer when you use the Services, and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on our Services and on third-party websites and other Third-Party Services. Google and these other third-party vendors may use information about those activities to inform, optimize, and serve advertisements. In particular, we may use Google and other third-party vendors to engage in “remarketing,” in which advertisements you see on third-party websites and services may be based on your prior visits to our Services.

To learn more about these practices, and to opt-out from Google’s and other vendors’ use of information collected on the Services through cookies for advertising purposes, you may visit Google’s Ads Preferences Manager, TRUSTe's Preference Manager, or the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page. Please note that opting-out will not prevent advertisements from being served to you on the Internet; it will only result in advertisements that utilize cookies to serve advertisements on the specified advertising networks from which you opt-out no longer being targeted. We are not responsible for the activities of other parties that may not comply with your opt-out requests.

We also use Google Conversion Tracking, which tracks whether users engage in certain activities (e.g., filling out a form to receive more information about our products or services) after they view one of our advertisements on a Third-Party Service. Google uses cookies to track conversions and to report that information to us.

Finally, please also be aware that we use the Google Maps API as a source of maps, geographic data, and geolocation information for purposes of providing location-based information regarding terminal devices connected to networks managed by our Services and for providing related reporting and analysis. Google may collect information, including personal information, from those who view content provided through the Google Maps API, and Google handles such information in accordance with the Google Privacy Policy.

Network Usage Information Collected by Our Services

Some of our Services collect information from terminal devices connected to networks that are managed by those Services. Those Services also collect information regarding the performance of, and certain other information regarding, such networks. This information includes, for example, MAC address, device type, operating system, geolocation information, and network traffic information (e.g., hostnames, protocols, port numbers, and IP addresses). This information is made available to administrators of networks managed by our Services through an online interface that we call the “dashboard”. Additionally, if a Meraki customer elects to use our device management tool currently known as Systems Manager ("Systems Manager") and installs its software on, or configures the profile of, a mobile device or other device (e.g., a laptop computer) managed by Systems Manager, the customer or Meraki may undertake certain actions on the device, such as the following: (i) list, access, copy, move, and delete files; (ii) track and record device location over time; (iii) take and record screenshots; (iv) manage the device through remote desktop functionality; (v) set and enforce policies; and (vi) install/remove apps. Finally, for devices with Systems Manager installed or devices that utilize Global Positioning System (GPS) technology, we transmit certain geolocation information about those devices and the network(s) on which they are running to Google, which provides us with related geolocation information that we store and make available to network administrators through our dashboard as described above in this paragraph. Google handles the information that we provide to it in accordance with the Google Privacy Policy.

Information from Other Sources

We may receive information about you, including Personal Information, from affiliated and unaffiliated third parties, and may combine this information with other Personal Information we maintain about you in order to ensure we have accurate information. If we do so, this Policy governs any combined information that we maintain in personally identifiable format.

Use of Information

We use Personal Information and other information we collect to do any of the following: provide services to our customers; provide information and otherwise respond to your requests, including sales inquiries, email requests, and shipping requests; enhance, improve, operate, maintain, and debug the Website, our other Services, and our other programs, services, Web sites, and systems; improve the effectiveness of our Website as a marketing tool and optimize the performance of the Website and our other Services; prevent fraudulent use of our Services and other systems; to prevent or take action against activities that are, or may be, in violation of the Meraki End Customer Agreement, the Meraki Terms of Use, or applicable law; to tailor content and other aspects of your experience on and in connection with the Services; maintain a record of our dealings with you; for other administrative purposes; and for any other purposes that we may disclose to you at the point at which we request your Personal Information, and pursuant to your consent.

We may also use Personal Information you provide to contact you regarding products, services, and offers, both from ourselves and third parties, that we believe you may find of interest. We allow you to opt-out from receiving marketing communications from us as described in the “Choice” section below.

Service Providers

We may disclose Personal Information to third-party service providers (e.g., payment processing and data storage and processing facilities) that assist us in our work. We limit the Personal Information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and we require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality of such Personal Information.

Business Transfers

Information about our users, including Personal Information, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which Personal Information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.

Nothing in this Agreement will be construed as transferring or changing our Intellectual Property Rights or interests in the Products in any respect. In addition, we will own any and all right, title, and interest in and to any feedback, suggestions, information, or materials you convey to us related to the Products in connection with your use of the Products ("Feedback"). You hereby assign to Meraki all right, title, and interest in such Feedback and will execute any documents and take any additional actions Meraki deems necessary to evidence, record, or perfect the foregoing assignment.

5.2. Reservation of Rights.

5.3. Privacy and Data Collection. Our Privacy Policy (available at http://www.meraki.com/support/#policies:privacy) is hereby incorporated into this Agreement by reference. Please read the Privacy Policy carefully for information relating to our collection, use, and disclosure of personal information. We collect Traffic Information and may from time to time make available functionality that allows you to limit or restrict the types of Traffic Information we collect. Additionally, for devices with Agent Software installed, we transmit certain geolocation information about those devices and the networks on which they are running to Google Inc. ("Google"), which provides us with related geolocation information that we store and make available to network administrators as described in our Privacy Policy. Google’s Privacy Policy, and not Meraki’s, governs Google’s handling of the information that we provide to Google. We use Traffic Information to make data available to you regarding, and to allow you to exercise certain controls with respect to, the traffic on your Network. We use Systems Manager Data to provide support and conduct product development activities. You represent and warrant to us that you have obtained or will obtain valid consent from each End User to add that End User’s device to the Network, to permit you and Meraki to collect, use, and disclose Traffic Information as described in this Section 5.4, and, to the extent you use Systems Manager, to use Systems Manager as described above (including, without limitation, accessing and deleting files on devices) and to permit you and Meraki to collect, use, and disclose Systems Manager Data as described in this Section 5.4. You hereby consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of Traffic Information and, to the extent you use Systems Manager, to our use of the Device Management Functionality and its collection, use, and disclosure of Systems Manager Data, in each case as described in this Section 5.4.

5.4. Publicity. Neither we, nor you, will use the other’s name, trademark, or trade name without the prior written consent of the other party, except that we may use your name and logo as part of a customer list on our website or in connection with our other customer listings.

ARTICLE 6    TERM AND TERMINATION

6.1. Term. This Agreement will be effective with respect to your use of the Products until the expiration of the License(s) applicable to the Products you are using, unless earlier terminated under Section 6.2. To the extent that you purchase additional Hosted Software License(s) subsequent to the date of the first Order, the duration of each Hosted Software License you have purchased will be adjusted such that all of your Hosted Software Licenses terminate on the same date.

The new co-termination date is calculated as a function of (i) the remaining time on your existing Hosted Software License(s) at the time of purchase, (ii) the duration of the Hosted Software License(s) purchased, and (iii) the one-year list price of each such Hosted Software License. This function produces a time value attributable to each Hosted Software License purchased that, when added together with the time value attributable to all new Hosted Software Licenses in a given purchase, yields what we call the “Incremental Dollar Days” associated with the new purchase. In addition, based on the one-year list price of all Hosted Software Licenses in your Network and the number of each type of Hosted Software License purchased, we determine the amount of Hosted Software License value that your Network consumes each day, what we call the “Daily License Usage Rate.” By dividing the Incremental Dollar Days by the Daily License Usage Rate, and adding the resulting number of days to the remaining time on your existing Hosted Software Licenses we arrive at the adjusted co-termination date following any new purchase. For further information regarding our licensing and co-termination policies please visit http://meraki.cisco.com/support#policies:licensing.

6.2. Termination.  Either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason effective upon 30 days prior written notice. Meraki may immediately suspend your use of the Products at any time if Meraki reasonably believes that you have breached the terms of ARTICLE 3, ARTICLE 4, or Sections 5.4 or 9.1. If such breach by you remains uncured for five days following receipt of notice from Meraki, then Meraki may terminate this Agreement effective immediately. You may terminate this Agreement for cause if we breach any material obligation of ours under this Agreement and fail to cure such breach within 10 business days of our receipt of written notice from you of such breach. If Meraki terminates this Agreement for convenience, or if you terminate this Agreement for cause, then in either case you will receive a refund of the amount you paid for the Hosted Software License allocable to the remaining Term.

6.3. Effect of Termination. Upon the termination of this Agreement for any reason, your access to and right to use the Products will terminate, and all Licenses will terminate. Upon expiration of a Hosted Software License, your Apps License will survive and you may continue to access and use the Web Apps and Mobile Apps, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, each party will return (or destroy) any Confidential Information of the other party in its possession. The following provisions of this Agreement will survive any termination of the Agreement: Sections 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 6.3, 7.5, 7.6, and ARTICLE 9.

ARTICLE 7    REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES; DISCLAIMER; REMEDIES

7.1. Mutual Warranties.  Each party hereby represents and warrants to the other that it has all necessary corporate power and authority to perform its obligations under this Agreement and to consummate the transactions contemplated hereby. This Agreement constitutes legal, valid, and binding obligations of the warranting party enforceable against the non-warranting party in accordance with its terms.

7.2. Service Warranties. Meraki will make reasonable efforts to provide the Hosted Software and Web Apps available in accordance with the service level warranty set forth in the Service Level Agreement (the "Service Level Warranty"), subject to the terms and conditions of the Service Level Agreement. The remedy set forth in the Service Level Agreement is your sole and exclusive remedy with respect to the subject matter of the Service Level Agreement, and our sole and exclusive liability, in contract, tort, or otherwise, for any breach of the Service Level Warranty.

7.3. Hardware Warranties. We represent and warrant to you, the individual or entity who obtained the Hardware from Meraki or its authorized reseller, but not to any End Users or other third parties, as follows: (i) for the Warranty Period the Hardware will be free from material defects in materials and workmanship; (ii) all items of Hardware are new or refurbished unless otherwise indicated on the face of the Order; and (iii) we have good title to the Hardware, free and clear of any liens, claims, or encumbrances. Hardware not meeting the warranties set forth above will be, at our option, (a) repaired, (b) replaced, or (c) Meraki will refund to you the depreciated amount of the Purchase Price allocable to the defective Hardware, calculated on a straight-line, five-year basis. All Hardware repaired or replaced under warranty will be warranted for the remainder of the Warranty Period. For any return permitted under Meraki’s then-current return policy as (available at http://meraki.cisco.com/support/#policies:return), you will request a Return Materials Authorization ("RMA") number in writing with the reasons for the return request. The remedies described above are our sole liability and your sole remedy for any breach of the warranties contained in this Section 7.3. Meraki is not responsible for any non-Meraki data or information stored on any Hardware returned to Meraki for repair, whether under warranty or not.

7.4. Exclusions. Meraki has no obligation with respect to defects caused by or resulting from any of the following: (i) installation or use of third party software on or in the Hardware; (ii) modifications or repairs to the Hardware or Software made by you or any third party; (iii) damage or defects resulting from misuse, accident, neglect, abuse, failure of electrical power, adverse environmental conditions, unusual electrical or physical stress, catastrophe, negligence, improper storage, testing, or connection, or other improper treatment; (iv) your use or operation of the Hardware or Software other than as detailed in the Specifications; (v) misconfiguration of the Hardware or Software; or (vi) any other causes beyond Meraki’s reasonable control.

7.5. Disclaimer of Warranties. EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN SECTIONS 7.1, 7.2, and 7.3, MERAKI DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR TITLE, AND CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT THE PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” MERAKI MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE PRODUCTS WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS, OR THAT USE OF THE PRODUCTS WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE; NOR DOES MERAKI MAKE ANY WARRANTY AS TO THE ACCURACY OR RELIABILITY OF ANY INFORMATION OBTAINED BY MEANS OF THE PRODUCTS, OR THAT ANY DEFECTS IN THE PRODUCTS WILL BE CORRECTED. FURTHER, MERAKI DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE PRODUCTS OR THE MERAKI SERVERS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. MERAKI ALSO ASSUMES NO RESPONSIBILITY, AND IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES TO, OR VIRUSES THAT MAY INFECT, CUSTOMER’S HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, OR OTHER MATERIALS. Because some jurisdictions do not permit the exclusion of implied warranties, portions of this section may not apply to Customer.

7.6. Exclusion and Limitation of Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL MERAKI OR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE PRODUCTS OR USE OF THE PRODUCTS THROUGH CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT BY ANYONE ELSE, EVEN IF MERAKI HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT WILL MERAKI’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER AND ANYONE WHO USES THE SERVICE THROUGH CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT, FOR ANY AND ALL CLAIMS UNDER ANY THEORY OF LAW OR EQUITY, EXCEED THE AGGREGATE PURCHASE PRICE ACROSS ALL ORDERS SUBMITTED BY CUSTOMER. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS THAT THESE LIMITATIONS OF MERAKI’S AND MERAKI’S SUPPLIERS’ AND DISTRIBUTORS’ LIABILITY ARE A FUNDAMENTAL PART OF THIS AGREEMENT. The provisions of this Section 7.6 allocate risks under this Agreement between Meraki and Customer. Meraki’s pricing of the Products reflects this allocation of risks and limitation of liability. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to Customer, in which case Meraki’s liabilities will be limited to the maximum extent allowed by law.

ARTICLE 8    INDEMNITY

Customer will defend, indemnify, and hold Meraki, its affiliates, and their employees, officers, directors, successors, assigns, agents, and customers harmless from and against any and all liabilities, damages, losses, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees arising out of or in connection with any and all claims, demands, actions, or proceedings brought by a third party to the extent based upon: (i) any grossly negligent, reckless, or intentionally wrongful act of Customer or Customer’s assistants, employees, agents, or End Users; (ii) Customer’s or its End Users’ misuse of the Products or breach of this Agreement; or (iii) Customer’s unauthorized modification or alteration of the Hardware or Software, including any modification or alteration in violation of Sections 3.6 and 4.2, above; (iv) Customer’s combination of the Hardware or Software with other products, software, or services not supplied or specified by Meraki; and (v) Customer’s continued use of the Hardware or Software without implementation within a reasonable time period of modifications provided by Meraki.

ARTICLE 9    MISCELLANEOUS

Except as described in Section 5.4, any and all information provided directly or indirectly by one party (the “Disclosing Party”) to the other party (the "Receiving Party"), including, but not limited to, any software, hardware, inventions, processes, designs, drawings, specifications, blueprints, technical information, know-how, trade secrets, product, marketing, business, or financial information related to the Disclosing Party (collectively, "Confidential Information"), will be kept confidential by the Receiving Party and may not be used, communicated, disclosed, or divulged, except as necessary in the performance of the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the deployment, operation, and maintenance of the Products. The Receiving Party agrees to limit access to the Confidential Information to those of its employees or contractors as are reasonably required for the purpose of performing the Receiving Party’s obligations under this Agreement or otherwise in connection with the deployment, operation, and maintenance of the Products. Prior to disclosing any Confidential Information to any of its employees or contractors, the Receiving Party will obtain from each such employee or contractor an agreement substantially as protective of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as the provisions hereof and each employee or contractor agrees not to use such information except in the performance of obligations hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information does not include any information that the Receiving Party can verify based on its written records was (a) already lawfully in the Receiving Party's possession without confidentiality obligations prior to receiving it from the Disclosing Party, (b) independently received from a third party without an accompanying duty of confidentiality and without breach of such third party’s obligations of confidentiality, (c) becomes available in the public domain through no action or inaction of the Receiving Party, or (d) developed independently by the Receiving Party without use of or reference to Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. If Receiving Party becomes legally compelled to disclose any Confidential Information, other than pursuant to a confidentiality agreement, Receiving Party will provide Disclosing Party prompt written notice, if legally permissible, and will use its best efforts to assist Disclosing Party in seeking a protective order or another appropriate remedy.

9.2. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, the Order, and the Service Level Agreement (collectively, the "Governing Documents") constitute the entire agreement between Meraki and Customer with respect to the subject matter of the Governing Documents and supersede all prior agreements, understandings, and arrangements, oral or written, between Meraki and Customer. No agreement or representations, oral or otherwise, express or implied, with respect to the subject matter of the Governing Documents have been made either by Meraki or Customer which is not expressly set forth in the Governing Documents.

9.3. Force Majeure. Neither you nor Meraki will be liable under this Agreement by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations (except for payment obligations) on account of strikes (other than strikes of a party’s own employees), shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, governmental action, labor conditions (other than with respect to a party’s own employees), earthquakes, material shortages or any other causes that are beyond the reasonable control of such party so long as the parties will use commercially reasonable efforts, including the implementation of business continuity measures, to mitigate the effects of such force majeure.

9.4. Independent Contractors. You and Meraki are independent contractors. Neither of you, nor Meraki, nor any of your or our respective employees, customers or agents, will be deemed to be the representative, agent, or employee of the other for any purpose whatsoever, and none of them have the right or authority to assume or create an obligation of any kind or nature, express or implied, on behalf of the other, or to accept service of any legal claims or notices addressed to or intended for the other.

9.5. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California. Customer submits to the jurisdiction in the federal or state courts of or located in Santa Clara County, California, with respect to any action or proceeding arising out of the Governing Documents, and Customer hereby waives any venue or other objection which it may have to any such action or proceeding being brought in the federal or state courts of in Santa Clara County, California.

9.7. Export Control. Customer will comply fully with all United States and any other country’s export laws and regulations and ensure that none of the Products are directly or indirectly exported or re-exported to any country, person, entity, or End User in violation of, or for any use prohibited by, such export laws and regulations.

9.8. Severability. If any portion of this Agreement is held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such portion will be deemed to be of no force or effect, and this Agreement will be construed as if such portion had not been included herein. If the deletion of such provision materially impairs the commercial value of this Agreement, then Meraki and Customer will attempt to renegotiate such provision in good faith.

9.9. Waiver. No failure or delay by you or by us to exercise any right under this Agreement will constitute a waiver of that right.

9.10. Headings. The headings used in this End User Agreement are for convenience of reference only and do not affect the meaning or construction of this End User Agreement.

9.11. Assignment. Neither this Agreement nor any rights under this Agreement may be assigned or otherwise transferred by either party, in whole or in part, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

License Co-Termination Summary

If a license is added to an existing network within the duration of the license period, credit is added to the new license by extending the renewal date. Below is a conceptual example.

Assume the original purchase included ten APs, each with a 1-year license. Also assume four months into the license term there are six additional APs added, each with a 1-year license. Extra credit is applied with value of 4 additional months * 6 additional APs = 24 additional 'AP-months'. This gives an additional 24 months / 16 total AP's in the organization = an additional 1.5 months to the license term for the whole organization.

Detailed explanation of licensing co-termination

This section describes in detail each step of the co-termination algorithm which is reflected mathematically in the next section. The dollar value of each license, for purposes of the co-termination calculation, is the one-year list price of the applicable license purchased (the “Base Price” of such license — see table of base prices below).

The co-termination date is then computed by, first, determining the amount of time remaining on the existing licenses in a customer’s organization by subtracting the license expiration date (available in the customer’s Dashboard account) from the current date (such difference, the “Remaining Days”).

The amount of additional time allocable to the new licenses purchased is determined by multiplying a one-year period of 365 days by the term (of years) of the new licenses purchased (the “New Time Purchased”) and subtracting from the New Time Purchased the number of days of Remaining Days (such difference, the “Incremental Days,” expressed in days).

The Incremental Days is then converted to a dollar-value unit of time by adding together, for each type of new license purchased, the product of (i) Incremental Time, (ii) the Base Price of the such new license-type purchased, and (iii) the number of such new license-type purchased (the sum of all such products, the “Incremental Dollar Days”).

In order to determine how many additional days the new purchase adds to the license term of a customer’s organization, the daily usage rate of these dollar-value units of time must be calculated. This is determined by adding together, for each type of license in the organization, the product of (i) the Base Price of each license type and (ii) the number of licenses of such type (the sum of all such products is your Network’s “Daily License Usage Rate”).

The actual number of incremental days to be added to the organization’s licenses as a result of the new purchase is calculated by dividing the Incremental Dollar Days by the Daily License Usage Rate (such quotient, the “Incremental TIme Purchased”).

The new co-termination date is finally calculated by adding the Incremental Time Purchased to the Remaining Days.

Mathematical Expression

This section expresses in mathematical terms the detailed explanation of the co-termination algorithm described in the previous section.

Definitions:

  • Remaining_Time = Time remaining on life of original purchase, expressed in seconds
  • New_Time_Purchased = Life of new licenses purchased (i.e., 1-year, 3-year, 5-year, 7-year, or 10-year)1

To calculate the new termination date of your network at the time of purchase of additional devices for your network:

  1. Determine the amount of time remaining on your current network, before the new purchase, or 0, whichever is greater
  2. Calculate Incremental_Network_Time purchased on new devices only
  3. Convert Incremental_Network_Time into Incremental_Dollars_Days, for new devices only
  4. Calculate the Daily License Usage Rate of your entire network, including all your existing and new devices
  5. Convert Incremental_Dollars_Days into Incremental_Time_Purchased
  6. Add Incremental_Time_Purchased to Remaining_Time to calculate Remaining_Time2 of your new network
Note 1: In the Meraki dashboard a unit of time is one second.

Examples

Co-Termination Example Problem A:

On January 1, 2013, you purchased and activated five Wireless MR16s with 1 year licenses for your network.
Today is May 8, 2013 (127 days later). You purchase and activate two MX80s with 3-year Advanced Security licenses to be added to your network.
Calculate in days the remaining time you have on your network.

Solution

  1. Remaining_Time_1 = January 1,2014 - May 8,2013 = 238 days
  2. Incremental_Network_Time = 1,095 days - 238 days = 857 days
  3. Incremental_Dollars_Days = 857 days × $2,000 × 2 = 3,428,000 dollar days
  4. Daily License Usage Rate = (5 MR16s × $150) + (2 MX80s × $2,000) = $4,750
  5. Incremental_Time_Purchased = (3,428,000 dollars days) / $4,750 = 722 days
  6. Remaining_Time_2 = 722 days + 238 days = 960 days remaining on new network

Co-Termination Example Problem B:

On January 1, 2013, you purchased and activated twenty wireless MR24s with 3-year licenses and one MX400 with a 3-year Advanced Security license for your network. Today is May 8, 2013 (127 days later). You purchase and activate an additional twenty-five wireless MR16s with 3-year licenses to be added to your network.
Calculate in days the remaining time you have on your network.

Solution

    Calculate Co-Term of January 1, 2013 Purchase (adding MX400 to MR24s on same day)
  1. Remaining_Time_1 = January 1,2016 - January 1,2013 = 1,095 days
  2. Incremental_Network_Time = 1,095 days - 1,095 days = 0 days
  3. Incremental_Dollars_Days = 0 days × $16,000 × 1 = 0 dollar days
  4. Daily License Usage Rate = (20 MR24s × $150) + (1 MX400 × $16,000) = $19,000
  5. Incremental_Time_Purchased = (0 dollars days) / $19,000 = 0 days
  6. Remaining_Time_2 = 1,095 days + 0 days = 1,095 days remaining on new network

    Calculate Co-Term of May 8, 2013 Purchase (adding twenty-five MR16s to existing network)
  1. Remaining_Time_1 = January 1,2016 - May 8,2013 = 968 days
  2. Incremental_Network_Time = 1,095 days - 968 days = 127 days
  3. Incremental_Dollars_Days = 127 days × $150 × 25 = 476,250 dollar days
  4. Daily License Usage Rate = (20 MR24s × $150) + (1 MX400 × $16,000) + (25 MR16s × $150) = $22,750
  5. Incremental_Time_Purchased = (476,250 dollars days) / $22,750 = 21 days
  6. Remaining_Time_2 = 968 days + 21 days = 989 days remaining on new network

Co-Termination Example Problem C:

On January 1, 2013, you purchased and activated fifteen Wireless MR16s with 5-year licenses. On June 30, 2013, you purchased and activated one MX80 with a 3-year Advanced Security license. Today is March 31, 2015 and you purchase and activate two MS42P Switch with a 1-year license.
Calculate in days the remaining time you have on your network.

Solution

    Calculate Co-Term of June 30, 2013 Purchase (adding MX80 to MR16s)
  1. Remaining_Time_1 = December 31,2017 - June 30,2013 = 1,645 days
  2. Incremental_Network_Time = 1,095 days - 1,645 days = -550 days
  3. Incremental_Dollars_Days = -550 days × $2,000 × 1 = -1,100,000 dollar days
  4. Daily License Usage Rate = (15 MR16s × $150) + (1 MX80 × $2,000) = $4,250
  5. Incremental_Time_Purchased = (1,100,000 dollars days) / $4,250 = -259 days
  6. Remaining_Time_2 = -259 days + 1,645 days = 1,386 days remaining on new network
  7. Co-termination Date = June 30, 2013 + 1,386 days = April 16, 2017

    Calculate Co-Term of March 31, 2015 Purchase (adding two MS42Ps to existing network)
  1. Remaining_Time_1 = April 16,2017 - March 31,2015 = 747 days
  2. Incremental_Network_Time = 365 days - 747 days = -382 days
  3. Incremental_Dollars_Days= -382 days × $200 × 2 = -152,871 dollar days
  4. Daily License Usage Rate = (15 MR16s × $150) + (1 MX80 &timtes; $2,000) + (2 MS42Ps × $200) = $4,650
  5. Incremental_Time_Purchased = (-152,871 dollars days) / $4,650 = -33 days
  6. Remaining_Time_2 = -33 days + 747 days = 714 days remaining on new network
  7. Co-termination Date = March 31, 2015 + 714 days = March 14, 2017

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the exact unit of time that is used for the licensing calculations?

Seconds. “Incremental Dollar Days” are actually computed in terms of incremental seconds in order to ensure precision in calculating the term of the licenses purchased. Once the exact expiration time is computed, actual license expiration is rounded to the nearest day and enforced at 9am Pacific Time on that day.

What happens if I purchase a new order with multiple different license lengths (e.g., 1 MR24 with a 1-year license, 1 MS42P with a 1-year license, and 3 MX100s with 3-year licenses)?

Each iteration of the co-term formula is only run with respect to licenses of the same term. So when new licenses are purchased on the same order with different terms, the co-term calculation is run multiple times. The calculations are run in the order of license addition. In the above example, the co-term calculation would first be run on the MR24 and MS42P, with the first co-term date calculated; a new co-term date would then be calculated using the first co-term date and the MX100 license for 3-years.

What is the difference between license renewals and adding licenses/devices?

The co-termination calculation for renewals only (no new devices being added) is slightly different because the total license time in the customer’s organization is not being ‘spread’ across any additional devices in the case of a renewal. Accordingly, when renewing the licenses for existing devices, the Incremental Dollar Days are calculated as a function of the entire term of the license (i.e., license term in years multiplied by a year of 365 days). In contrast, when purchasing a license for a new devices, the Incremental Dollar Days is calculated as a function of the “Remaining Time,” that is, the difference between the term of the new license and the amount of time remaining under the customer’s existing licenses.

Expressed mathematically, the difference in the two formulas is as follows:

Renewal Incremental_Dollar_Days = New_Time_Purchased * Count of Device * Device Base Price
New Device Incremental_Dollar_Days = (New_Time_Purchased - Remaining_Time) * Count of Device * Device Base Price

What happens when upgrading from enterprise to advanced security licenses?

When purchasing MX products, a customer must either choose Enterprise licenses for those products or Advanced Security licenses — but not both. If a customer wants, for instance, to upgrade to the Advanced Security functionality on its MX devices and purchases new MX licenses, the co-termination calculation is re-run because the Advanced Security licenses are more expensive. This means that both the Incremental Dollar Days and the Daily License Usage Rate will be adjusted since each is calculated as a function of the Base Price of the licenses.

Is there a place I can easily run a sample co-termination calculation myself?

Yes. The Meraki Dashboard includes a manual co-termination calculator. To access it, first create a dashboard account for free by clicking here. Then click here to be taken to the co-termination calculator.
