This month’s Rising Star award goes to @Alexs20. Since joining the community in mid-August, @Alexs20 has amassed an impressive 36 posts and 4 kudos by asking great questions in the Switching and Wireless LAN boards and engaging in discussions with our members to get at a deeper understanding. Check out his contributions on his profile.





Thanks for your posts @Alexs20 — we hope you'll continue to find value from participating in our community!


Everybody Wins


This award allows us to highlight the actions of a member whose recent contributions created a win for everyone involved.


This month's award goes to @AaronS for answering an old thread first opened in 2018 about an inconsistency with MS cable test results. He came across the thread while trying to figure out a result from a cable test while troubleshooting a device that wouldn't connect to the switch. @AaronS took the time to document and share the answer he received from Meraki Support in order to help anyone else who might come across the issue in the future.






Thanks @AaronS for taking the time to help your fellow Community members and do the right thing!
