This article outlines the Cisco Meraki India Region, emphasizing centralized control, local data storage, and enhanced privacy for users in India. It provides details on supported products, creating organizations, accessing the India Region Dashboard, and migrating existing setups, offering a comprehensive guide for seamless network management.

Cisco Meraki provides centralized visibility and control over your Meraki wired and wireless networking hardware: without the cost and complexity of wireless controllers or overlay management systems. The Cisco Meraki India Region extends the same powerful service to our customers in India who wish to store their data locally. The Cisco Meraki India Region is supported on data centers of a cloud service provider empaneled by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Government of India, and offers data protection, privacy, and security while enabling customers to securely protect their data.

Accessing Meraki India Region Dashboard

Migrating Existing Devices, Networks or Organizations to the India Region

To move an existing organization to the India Region, create a new organization in the India Region, and then manually move all devices to the new organization. All configuration settings will need to be manually created. To move your current licenses between organizations, please reach out to Meraki Support by opening a support case.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are normal Meraki Admin accounts shared with India admin accounts? Can I see my India organizations and non-India organizations in Global Overview/MSP portal with the same login? 

No. The accounts created on the India dashboard are totally separate from non-India accounts and do not cross over or share any information or org membership information. Global Overview/MSP portal only supports for organization within the India region, but not across with the other regions.
