Congrats @Julian@GregScarlett, and @sasas! Huge thanks to everyone for sharing your photos 🙂  


The Cisco Meraki Quarterly webinar is just around the corner (you can register here), and we’re excited to bring back the photo contest! In this contest, we ask you to submit photos based on a theme. The winning photo will be featured as the cover image for the Meraki Quarterly Webinar held on April 9th.


This round, we are looking to see your unique work from home setups. For those of us who are new to the remote-working life, some last minute cobbling together of office-like environments may have been in order. 


Living in a house with other novice teleworkers, I, for one, have had to line my closet with couch cushions and blast the soothing sounds of the ocean to secure some peace and quiet. It’s less home office and more hibernation cave.😳





From March 31st to April 8th, submit a photo via comment on this post showing us your work from home setup. We’d love to see all manner of work from home environments, but, of course, the more creative the better!


Here is an example of how @CarolineS is taking care of business with her co-workers at home:

Building a reputation

I'm lucky my home-office is well equipped and spacious in our basement.

At this point i'm not complaining just missing the interaction with my colleagues.

MS teams isn't really like a normal meeting.....


the plus points.....

- Faster pc (instead of a laptop)

- Bigger screens 2x27" in stead of 2x24"

- 250Mbit internet connection (capped by MX64 😞 ) just for a few people compared to 100Mbit for 50 people.

- listening to music without headphones

- perfect WiFi 😄

Reposting this from my LinkedIn


As a remote employee at Cisco, I've been #workingfromhome for the last 3.5 years. Being a geek, my tech setup is something I've tweaked through numerous iterations.

A few things I wouldn't want to do without:
1. My #cisco #webex DX80 TP unit. Makes meetings and sharing content so much more immersive, and doubles as a second screen when I need it.
2. An ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio primary monitor. The realestate of two screens, without losing anything down the middle.
3. Ergotron medical trolly to dock my laptop and carry my monitor. Allows me to sit and stand, and lets me to roll my setup to a different part of the house when I want to switch things up.
4. #meraki MX68 handling dual carrier internet services, SD-WAN, prioritisation and shaping, VPN, security, content filtering and the rest.
5. Reliable power via APC UPS, Fronius solar inverter (with API access integrated with Meraki API) and a generator with a week worth of fuel.

WFH is nothing new for me, been doing it for ~15 years now.


Welcome to the Home Office/Panic Room/Undisclosed Location behind a secret bookshelf I can open with Siri!  Soundproof inside... and out.  Which is nice, because all the gear is in the next room over.

Unfortunately some of us IT folk are still holding down the fort handling the local issues that aren't so easy to do remotely.  (Hey, someone has to change out the backup tapes, even if they are redundant.)
