Community Manager

UPDATE: this contest has ended. Huge thanks to the community for sharing your networking stories from back in the day — we thoroughly enjoyed reminiscing with everyone! Congrats to our three randomly selected winners: @msimonton@ivannavaq, and @AVLSOLUTIONS!   


This month, we proudly present the Networking Nostalgia Contest! We were feeling nostalgic for this contest and decided to bring it back😀


Do you ever look back on your pre-Meraki work life with a bit of nostalgia? Some of our team members have somewhat-fond recollections of outrageously out-of-date or incomplete network diagrams (see below), desperate attempts to locate APs in large buildings without the aid of blinking LEDs, and of having to leave their desks to do EVERYTHING!
