Hello everyone!...  my name is Jim and I'm a Network Administrator for city in the North Texas region.  I retired about 4 years ago from the Public Safety field and decided to pursue a second career in I.T. (I was only 43 when I retired).  So I taught college during the day, and attended the Cisco CCNA academy at night.  I've been working in the field for 3 years now (1 year as a Support Tech; 1 year Jr NetAdmin; 1 year NetAdmin), and I'm realizing that I should have done this a long time ago. 

@Jim-Norcross - welcome to the Meraki Community! Congrats on finding your second career — most impressive. It's hard enough to find just one.

 

 I'm married and have 2 kids that are grown (Empty Nester!).  I have a B.A. in Criminal Justice, Master of Public Admin, and I'm working on my second Masters in Information Systems.  I have my CCNA R&S; studying for my CCNP R&S, and CCDA...


Sounds like you should get your Meraki CMNO too! Here's more info about the CMNO program

 

Have a great day!

I’m Sheena from Verizon. I am part of the team that worked on Meraki Installs (Security App, Switches, AP) on all American Red Cross sites across the country. The project is still on going though and very challenging. 

 

Thrilled to be here. 🙂

HelloAlex
Conversationalist

Hey, folks, it's Alex!

I work as CIO in a materials testing institute. We are an SME with 80 employees spread over 5 locations in Switzerland. I am very IT affine and I am also very much occupied with technology and everything new which there is to discover.
Our existing network infrastructure is very inhomogeneous, we use many manufacturers such as HP, Sophos, Netgear, Intel and Zyxel. As part of a consolidation project, we are converting everything to cisco meraki. We expect better availability, fewer support cases, easier manageability and a better overview of the network and the processes in it, which finally saves us money even though the equipment is more expensive. I am here to learn and on the other hand to contribute my knowledge to the community.

Have a nice day!
Alex

Hello Guy's and Girl's

 

My Name is Steve Brown and I have worked on everything from AS400 to now Power Shell and other Server and other devices. I just recently got introduced to Meraki when my job bought two MS225 and I had to implement them into our Network. I saw the CMNO class and figured what do i have to loose by taking it well i passed and here I am.

 

I am new to the Cisco world and would like to get to know more about it. I have a MS220  Switch, A MX64, and a MR33. I have Comcast cable and would like to know if anyone can help me setup the equipment so I can have two separate networks one with Comcast and one for testing which will not inter fer with my Comcast network.

 

I look forward to talking and learning more over the Meraki world with you guy's and girl's.

 

Thank You Steve

I install/maintain/troubleshoot installations w/meraki devices as well as mixed in with other network vendors - for several years. Mostly SMB market, and the occasional 'large' install - outdoors, 100+ APs, apartment complex, 2000+ residents and multiple gig circuits.

 

Quick tip - if you need to place APs farther than the normal 100 meters (328 ft) - you'll need to review ethernet "extension" technologies - consider Adtran ActivReach - it's PoE (vendor says 1200ft - we've had working installs at 1600ft w/meraki APs). There are 2 models of switches, and are very similar to cisco via CLI - I just wish it could do GigE w/ActivReach - limit is 100Mb).

 

I always wondered for the southwest USA where there is a lot of sunshine, that perhaps incorporating solar cells would help w/powering the APs - just a thought...

Hi @-jb and welcome to the Meraki Community! Fun fact - Meraki did have solar once upon a time. Googling "Meraki Solar" will bring you to this PDF from 2008! But the next Google result is the EOL announcement. Please feel free to make some wishes about that via Dashboard, or post a thread here on the community (in the Wireless LAN board) to gain support via kudos.

YO YO YO WASSA HAPPENING MERAKI.

 

That was my attention getter. <-- which by the way "getter" is not a word.

 

Anyways, my name is Chris, I am fairly new to Meraki, in the fact that I have not used Dashboard until this year. I find that it is useful in certain aspects, but where there is positive, there is usually an equal negative. Sadly, I can't pin point any cons, hehehe ( I ain't no snitch ).. jk

 

I hope to find this forum/community useful in answering my questions about Meraki and the Meraki Dashboard.

 

But here is a question for you the community, it's kind of trivial,

 

Ready?

 

If you can answer this question right ( 1st person ), I'll buy you a pair of socks ( no not a double punch to the face )

 

Who does Meraki use for their SSL cert ? how can you verify it ? and how can you be sure ( or bs ) it if you're doing ssl forwarding ?

 

 

Chris

I buy socks from the flea market.

 

 

Well @chrisg925, for the main public web site they use a certificate from "Hydrant ID ISL IGA G2".

main-web-site.png

 

For the Dashboard Meraki use a certificate from "Go Daddy".

dashboard.png

 

You can verify this (in Chrome) by click on the "Secure" text to the left of the URL, and then clicking "certificate".

 

The headers for the Dashboard say that nginx is being used - so almost certainly ssl forwarding is happening.  The public web site says it is using cloudflare.

Just a question the CNMA, was this released first before CNMO? because I only saw the CNMA 2 weeks ago. Would like to know the difference as well.

Hi @Jb_thompson1 - CMNA was indeed launched before CMNO; the first CMNA certifications were given in 2012 whereas CMNO was launched in 2016. CMNA is specifically for pre-sales engineers at qualified Meraki partners. The technical content between CMNA and CMNO is similar; CMNA has additional sales-related content.

 

Hope that answers your question; if you have more questions about Meraki training do feel free to ask them in our Off the Stack (General) board.

Hi @CarolineS, the not enough kind. I wish I could ride or run to work each day but my job has me covering multiple sites. I have a mountain bike but the bike trails are farther away than the paved bike paths. I don't tend to have a lot of free time so I changed the tires to a wide road tire and use the bike paths.
