IPv6 Support on MX Security & SD-WAN Platforms!

We are ecstatic to announce, on behalf of Meraki Product and Engineering teams, the official public release supporting IPv6 on MX Security & SD-WAN Platforms - available now!


IPv6 is an ongoing cross-product initiative for Meraki as IPv4 addresses are being exhausted and with more hosts such as IoT devices requiring addressing, IPv6 provides a new structure of addressing to accommodate a larger number of hosts.

For more information on compatible devices, please see the IPv6 Device Compatibility documentation.


If you wish to sign up for the Private/Closed Beta community and would like to test the latest IPv6 feature releases on your MX Security & SD-WAN Platforms, then please do so via the Private/Closed Beta Sign-up Form. For public release notifications, subscribe to the IPv6@Meraki community page.
