Cisco Emergency Responder Integration

Cisco Meraki Switch integration with Cisco Emergency Responder (CER) enhances the existing emergency 9-1-1 functionality offered by Cisco Unified Communications Manager. It assures that Cisco Unified Communications Manager will send emergency calls to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the caller's location, and that the PSAP can identify the caller's location and return the call if necessary. In addition, the system automatically tracks and updates equipment moves and changes. Deploying this capability helps ensure more effective compliance with legal or regulatory obligations, reducing the risk of liability related to emergency calls as a result.

MS11.22 is the recommended minimum firmware version for Cisco Meraki MS switches integrating with Cisco Emergency Responder.

Enabling SNMPv2 on Meraki Switches 

SNMPv2 support is introduced in MS 10.6. SNMPv3 is currently not supported.

  1. Navigate to Network-wide > Configure > General.
  2. Under the Reporting section, for SNMP access, select V1/V2c (community string) option from the dropdown menu.
  3. Enter a community string in the SNMP community string text-box.
  4. Click Save.

Adding Meraki Switches to CER

Adding Meraki Switches to CER is the same as adding any other Cisco switch to CER.  For more information, please see the LAN Switch Identification section in the Cisco Emergency Responder Administration Guide.

Please check with current CER release firmware on supported Meraki devices, as this can change per firmware iteration.  You can view the current firmware releases for CER on the firmware release notes page.
