Full-time IT professionals can receive a FREE Cisco Meraki MR access point (AP)* with a 3-year cloud management license. While Cisco Meraki webinars are open to all audiences and while APs may be offered at live events, to be eligible for a free AP, participants must:

Attend the live event or the live webinar in its entirety
Provide a valid company name and website
Be an IT professional working in one of the countries listed below and have an active role of managing, maintaining, or monitoring their organization's network infrastructure, and be employed by the company
Not be a partner, reseller, or consultant
Register with a shipping address in the US, Canada, the UK or the rest of the EEA, Croatia, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, or Puerto Rico. We cannot ship free APs outside of these regions and cannot ship to post office boxes.
If from a European country, provide a valid VAT ID for shipment.
Register with their company email address
Confirm satisfaction of the above requirements and shipping address with a Cisco Meraki representative by phone

Free AP's are not available under this promotion for partners, resellers, or consultants, and the promotional AP's may not be used for resale or distribution. Limit one free AP per organization and per individual.

By accepting the AP you represent that you are authorized by your employer to accept the AP and that you will disclose receipt of the AP to your employer as and if required. Cisco Meraki reserves the right to not fulfill your free AP shipment in the event that the promotional AP is not certified in your country, or it is unable to clear customs at the time of shipment. The recipient is responsible for taxes and duties, if any. Due to abuse, we cannot provide promotional APs to individuals who register with yahoo, gmail, hotmail, and other email domains not registered to your company. Please speak directly to your Cisco Meraki rep if you have any questions.

Please note that U.S. K-12 schools and public libraries are not eligible to receive a free AP after attending a webinar. Instead, these customers can request a product evaluation.

* the exact model of AP will be determined by Cisco Meraki, in its sole discretion.

Be careful when taking advantage of this, some of the promotions are open to one freebie per company. Also, you'll be acting on the behalf of the company by accepting it. Might cause some issues.

Does a sole proprietorship qualify as a "valid company" and I as an employee with "an active role of managing, maintaining, or monitoring their organization's network infrastructure" if I need to handle all that and more myself?

I agree, unless someone here will produce a fake company to earn some freebie. It will be extremely risky if you are not the head of the IT department and acting on your company behalf.

I would advise against doing this unless you have nothing to lose.

Here is the fine print:
"...Free AP's are not available under this promotion for partners, resellers, or consultants, and the promotional AP's may not be used for resale or distribution. Limit one free AP per organization and per individual...."

Thanks for the heads up on the one per company. I'm one of several IT techs for our company; not going to get tangled up in this. Will pass it on to them though, so thanks!

I acted on behalf of a fortune 100 company and got the free AP. I never sold that AP b/c technically it's the company's property. If anyone asked for it I was prepared to give it to them or give it back. I worked at said company for 4-5 years more after that (they've been doing this promotion for a while).

I've seen engineers at said company get fired for getting and then selling the equipment Meraki hands out after their full day onsite engineer training they took during company time. Not so smart.

Looks like deceptive cisco practices - the list of exceptions is so long that I stopped reading half way.
