All current Cisco Meraki devices require a valid license per MR/MX/MS/MV or device to function and operate.
When renewing your Cisco Meraki license, or upgrading from enterprise to an advanced Security license on an MX, you must have or purchase a license for every device under the organization at the same time.
For example - If you had an enterprise MX84 license and an MR access point License in the dashboard, and you wanted to upgrade to the advanced security license on the MX84, you would need to purchase the MX84 advanced security license and renew the AP license at the same time.

Cisco Meraki licensing is applied on an Organization-wide basis. What this means is that a license isn't purchased for a specific device, rather each license added to the Organization increases the number of a specific device typethat can be added to the Organization.
The number of devices in an organization can not exceed the license limitations, if this occurs the Organization will enter a 30 day grace period during which the Organization must be brought back in compliance. Should the Organization not be brought back into Compliance it will be shut down until proper licensing is applied to the Organization. Note: During the grace period clients will notice no difference.
Cisco Meraki Licensing is co-terminating. This means the end dates for all licensing is averaged together based on device type and licensing limits. Suppose an organization had 2 separate Enterprise AP licenses, one license is for 2 APs spanning 1-year (365 days) and another for 1 AP spanning 5-years (1825 days). The co-termination value would be calculated as ((1825*1)+(365*2))/3= 851 days per AP. This allows an Organization to add more devices and licenses over time without having to worry about a myriad of license expiration dates.
Note: The organization co-termination date does not depend on the current device count, but rather the license limit. Removing devices from a network or organization will not impact the co-termination date.
