Announcing the winners of the VLAN challenge

Community Manager

Thank you to EVERYONE who entered the VLAN Challenge. We had 135 fantastic entries, proving again (along with the SD-WAN Challenge) that all ya'll love explaining things. 

 

And now, without further ado, the winners!

 

The Community Favorite

Chosen by kudos from community members. @MarcP and @jdsilva each received 6 kudos, so we have to invoke the tiebreaker clause... in case of tie, the entry that was posted first wins. So, congratulations to @MarcP! We loved his analogy - complete with diagram - of floors in a building. Read MarcP's winning entry

 

The Meraki Favorite

Chosen by a panel of experts here at Meraki. There were SO MANY great entries that choosing just one was quite a challenge, but our team was up to the task. We picked @ASheppard970's entry as a simple and understandable explanation of VLANs. We liked how this entry clearly explained the pain points that VLANs can solve. Read ASheppard970's winning entry.

 

 

Congratulations, @MarcP and @ASheppard970! Stay tuned for an email from me to confirm your mailing address for your NEW AWESOME BACKPACK!

Kind of a big deal

@jdsilva  Nice work, MOTM is almost here and you aren't to far behind @PhilipDAth

Kind of a big deal

@jdsilva has been very busy in the last week as well.  It would be well deserved if it did happen.

@CarolineS Haha 😄 perfect, Thanks 🙂 I´ll take it as a compliment

Hope you can see which gnome I´m trying to imitate, hehe

Made a tiny change in the colours now 

Kind of a big deal

Congrats everyone @MarcP @jdsilva @ASheppard970 and @CarolineS thanks as always.

Kind of a big deal

@MarcP my apologies I forgot to congratulate you as well! Well done and I hope you enjoy the swag!

Just received my SWEET Meraki backpack!  Thanks to @CarolineS and everyone on the committee for this.  I will use it proudly for many years to come...especially on those overnight trips to fix my mom's computer (she's 87 and uses both a computer AND a SmartPhone proficiently)!

 

And of course I had to stand it up next to my favorite poster in the world.  No, it's not Pamela Anderson in her "Baywatch" outfit!  (OK, showing my age a little.)  It's the Cisco OSI Model poster.  Yep, you guessed it!  Total nerd, here.

Can I have your Pamela Anderson poster please.

@ASheppard970 I´m jealous 😄 Still not received something over here 

Here to help

@PhilipDAth, sorry to say but she was tossed out in the early 80s (when I started dating) along with Loni Anderson and Ann & Nancy Wilson ("Heart").  If I did have one, though, I'd be happy to let you have it.

@MarcP, not sure what to tell you!  I presume by "over here" you're referring to somewhere other than the continental US.  Mayhaps your pack is on the slow boat from China.  @CarolineS Any help for our mate, here?

Head in the Cloud

Yeah, has to fly to europe 😉 Hopefully tomorrow... can´t wait 😄

Yehaaaa, its finally here and replacing this outworn bag instantly:)

Nice!

@MarcP , that is awesome!  Although that other case looks a bit like a Violin (or Viola) case, but that might just be perspective in the picture.  Glad to hear you received it, mate!  I'd like to think we're the only two blokes in the world with backpacks as cool as these...but I'm sure there are others.

Yay!! Sorry for the delay, @MarcP!! Glad it finally made it to you. Enjoy!

Head in the Cloud

@ASheppard970 haha yeah, don´t think many have got these bags... @CarolineS maybe knows something about it? 😉

My collegues and CIO are already very jealous 😄

 

@CarolineS No problem, happens sometimes.

Kind of a big deal

@MarcP MotM got them a few months ago, but otherwise I've never seen them anywhere else.
