Licence problems WIFI4EU

Hi Meraki Community

I m the administrator of a Meraki wifi network using Meraki in my City.The dashboard account is activated on my my personal information!

Recently as a wifi instalation company we were involved in the WIFI4EU project and we are ready to proceed for the installation.

Here is the question, as an administrator i d like to have all the networks that we ll install in my dashboard for obvious reasons.The problem is that:

.when we received the equipment related to two separate networks we received only one licence for all of them, and i started claiming those devices in my personal dashboard (which i must say i aready have a network of my own).Then i created the different networks and everything is ok (i thought that i could add the licence key after which i think i can but...) till i realised that THE TWO SEPARATE NETWORKS must have the same SSID.

So what should i do?

Imagine that i have more installations waiting with meraki and i m stuck in the easiest part!I thought i d have broblems with portal of the requirements on the WIFI4EU program (i solved it in 5 minutes)

Does anyone has an idea?

You can just set the same ssid?

 

Are you talking different  organizations? If yes, then you need to contact meraki support  to move licences

i want them on the same organization cause i m supposed to support them! How can i set the same SSID for four different networks under the same organization? Does Templates has something to do with what u are referring at?

You can use templates.

Or you can just configure the same SSID in all four networks.

 

 

It's pretty straight forward.

Or configure a "Wireless" network, with all Access Points for every location in it, and use tags in case you are putting all wireless client traffic in different vlans depending on the wired infrastructure.

I support several companies, and I never put their equipment in my corporate or personal dashboard.  

 

I always create an Meraki account for the client and set myself up as an administrator.  I then claim any equipment that company purchases under their dashboard.

 

This allows me to creat multiple networks for a particular client, and I never have to worry about cross license issues.

 

When I sign into the dashboard, I see all of my clients and can get any of their dashboards.  Once I am into the dashboard, I have a MSP Portal that shows me which clients have issues and which don't.

 

I can also see the license expiration date for each client, so I can prepare them and they are not surprised at renewal time.
