Dear Customer,

Due to changing market conditions, Cisco Meraki will implement price increases effective October 31, 2021, for a subset of hardware and license SKUs on all price lists globally.

This price change impacts select Meraki hardware and licenses across MR, MS, MG, and accessories, in addition to some MX licenses for hardware going through end-of-sale. Please note, there are no price changes to MV, MT, SM, or Go.

A consolidated list of impacted Meraki SKUs is posted on Sales Connect, and the complete list of impacted products and price change amounts is posted in Partner Central. Standard 30-day price protection will apply on existing quotes dated prior to October 31st. You may direct any price change inquiries to

While the ongoing supply chain disruption continues to affect us all, we wanted to share some things we’re doing to help mitigate the impact to your business and help you close your year-end calendar as strongly as possible.

The global semiconductor shortage means that pivoting toward our expanding software portfolio might be a good option for many customers. Our new incentives put your sellers in alignment with Cisco sellers, reward them for incremental growth, and create an opportunity to realize software rewards faster.

These include:

  • Pay-over-time options (for partners and distributors)
    Provides enhanced flexibility for pay-over-time offers to help you address credit, cash flow, and end customer nonpayment risk challenges by increasing the leverage of Cisco Capital end customer financing
  • Q1 software growth incentive
    Helps you close the quarter strong with an emphasis on software; this complements the SPIFF that’s already in place for Cisco sellers and applies to all partners on all software bookings
  • VIP 38 advanced rebates
    You will qualify to receive an advanced VIP 38 annuity payment on software subscriptions eligible in any of the VIP 38 annuity sub-tracks with a start date before October 30, 2021, and currently meeting the payout requirements
  • VIP 37 shipment cut-off date extension
    We are extending the original October 30, 2021 shipment deadline for VIP 37 bookings by six months

You and your teams can find more information about these programs and incentives here or by contacting your Cisco Meraki Account Manager.

We recognize that this situation poses many challenges. We are in this together and, as we have before in challenging environments, are doing everything we can to ensure your success and business continuity. Thank you for your continued partnership.

Best Regards,

Cisco Meraki Partner Team
