Re: Please introduce yourself

Hi, My name is Mel and I look after the voice and data network for Stevenson Astrosat in Edinburgh U.K

My career has always been in telecommunications both as an engineer and manager. I am relatively new to IP networks and it's a very steep learning curve. Thankfully there are people in communities and forums that are keen to help which is reassuring.

Already had some sound advice from the community and the Meraki support team so off to a great start.

Re: Please introduce yourself

Hello all,

 

Name is John Cottage. I work for a Cisco VAR in the NYC tri-state area. My main focus is Cisco's security portfolio(ISE, SteathWatch, Firepower, AMP). As there is now alot of integration and overlap with the Meraki offerings, I do alot of Meraki installs as well. 

 

From the Meraki cert side I have both the CMNO and CMNA

Re: Please introduce yourself

Hi all! I work for a VAR in the wi-fi group. I have been in computer networking for many years and been working with 802.11 exclusively since 2002, but have limited experience with Meraki.

The impetus for me to become more familiar with Meraki is one of my companies largest customers is looking to move from their current wi-fi vendor to Meraki. 

I have set up a home lab with a MS220-8P switch and a pair of MR18s access points and it is working well. However I need to increase my knowledge of the security appliance, Insight, End point management and cameras, so that when they pull the trigger to make the switch, I will be ready to implement a total solution. I figured that joining the community was a good place to begin my Meraki education. I look forward to a mutually beneficial exchange of information and ideas.

Glad to be aboard!

Hi,

I am anew Network Administrator and I ma facing lots of challenges since the very start but I like challenges. I am working for the first time on Cisco Meraki MX84. I created a VPN tunnel and its working fine but I wanted to know if there is a way to create another VPN with different parameters on same Meraki for testing purposes.

 

Thanks

Hi @Tazio4436 and welcome to the Meraki Community! Thanks for introducing yourself. I'd recommend you ask your VPN question over in the Security & SD-WAN board - it will get more eyeballs there.

Re: Please introduce yourself

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Daghan and I had joined Meraki at 2010 as a PM and subsequently launched MX. Then I got ownership of the Service Provider porfolio. Later I launched MI and finally I took over SM. I left Meraki in Nov 2018 (and miss everyone there...what a team!).

 

Right now, I am an average Meraki user, setting AWS VPN etc... for my new startup and not to break tradition, I am also making futile feature requests (I know they are busy over there!).

 

If there is something you've always hated about MX, now you know who to go after! 🙂

 

Last words: Stay on the beaten path even if that means some extra gear / licenses. (I learned it the hard-way yesterday)

 

 

 

 

I made some mistakes
