  1. A bit about yourself & your work - Hi my name is Daniel Hosking, I lead our National Architecture Services team. I have worked in the IT industry selling and deploying Cisco solutions (wired, wireless and security) since 1996.
  2. Your experience with Cisco Meraki - I have had extensive experience selling, designing and deploying Meraki solutions over the last 6 years. Highlights include -
    • A 150 site retail network for a national carrier, each site consisting of a full Meraki Stack
    • A 4000 seat high-rise building with Meraki servicing both the corporate users and IoT devices
    • Designing and deploying a high density wireless Meraki network in theatre with a 5000 person capacity, integrated into both Cisco Umbrella and DNA spaces through API
  3. What you're hoping to gain from the community - See new ideas and share knowledge from my previous Meraki engagements
  4. A fun fact about yourself - I like to have a laugh, watch the Meraki video I put together below and watch until the end 🙂

Welcome Daniel! It's good to see people still like to have a laugh in these times. 🙂

Gotta keep the kid in line as well! 😀

Building a reputation

Funny video.  Mine just resort to cellular.

Welcome to the community! Those are impressive numbers.


Back in my day all we needed was 4 AA batteries, good lighting and strong lungs to blow out cartridges. Kids these days... 👾


Edit: Great work on the video btw!

Sounds like a System Manager with Umbrella challenge!!!

Getting noticed

Great idea on the video.... like that your testers verified it worked!😀

They thought it was funny at first, until they understood what it meant for the long term!!

You let them cooperate on the video only to tell them afterwards that it was serious? That is kinda evil.

Wait untill they are teenagers and their mobile devices are locked down! 😀
