Re: Please introduce yourself

Hi All, 

 

I'm Simon, i work for a Systems Integrator and Managed Service provider... 

I've made some comments/suggestions via the portal and have never really heard anything back so maybe this is the ideal place to discuss where i see improvements can be made.

As a managed service provider the reporting function from Meraki is fantastic... although skewed and sometimes difficult to extrapolate.  What i'd really like to see is a report that provides downtime of AP's or a what AP's are of a concern either by too many clients attached or excessive throughput etc... (this is where someone tells me its possible)

Hi Merki-ites!  

 

My name is Cara Forsman and I am an Account Executive at CADABLE.  We are a CISCO Meraki partner and I take pride in helping IT professionals and organizations help solve their network infrastructure and connectivity headaches.  Basically, I help people sleep at night.  I also enjoy sleeping at night, so I already have something in common with our customers.  

 

We are a locally owned business in Washington State and personally see to the successful migration to cloud in many forms.  We are an AWS partner, in addition to Autodesk, Bluebeam, Macrium and others.  You will always get a live person on the phone.  We are NOT a volume reseller, we are a Value Added Reseller and specialize in working with AEC and Manufacturing customers, though we can work with any number of different types of customers.  We love the Pacific Northwest!  Go Seahawks!  You can reach me at cara@cadable.com

Thanks, happy to join.

Have been working with Meraki products for 6 months now. We have just replaced our cisco classic network with Meraki - so now Firewalls, swithces and AP's is all Meraki. 

IT is very easy to manage also over long distances 🙂

Re: Please introduce yourself

I've been working with Meraki products shortly after they introduced the Indoor and Outdoor (OD2) pro products. While more expensive than other wireless deployments at the time, our hotel deployments were absolutely thrilled with the reliability of the products and the wifi. Even when an AP or gateway failed, the only way we even knew was because the dashboard told us so--the site never knew of the failure.

The Meraki products were one of a kind at one point, but now the competition has caught up to a certain extent. I still recommend the Indoor and Outdoor products to smaller networks that need more management than bandwidth.

Little known fact--the Outdoor OD2s can use a wired backhaul when they are the only devices on a LAN and their mesh will be based on the wired link vs the wireless one. Bandwidth via this wired backhaul was limited to 11Mbps, even with 100Mbps switches, but was better than a purely wireless mesh.

Hi DougieChef, to implement a DHCP relay it is easy, in menu Security Appliance in DHCP in Client Addressing select "Relay DHCP to another server" option, and in the box below you write your DHCP server IP.

Good afternoon one and all ..

My name is Andrew and ... oh, wrong meeting.

I'm a principal within nedwos and we help SME's with all of the "back office" type work in a complete managed way. eg all their IT, comms, software etc along with processing accounts, paperwork, monthly accounts and such.

All this is tied-up with best-of-breed technology that most SME's don't know about or cannot access because of licence counts/fees because they are too "expensive" for the bigger service providers to support. We are the middle-men, and provide exceptional first-line support for our clients, building upon the experience of all our clients.


This allows SME's access to the best enterprise security, data protection, voice/voip comms, workflow automation, marketing and systems.

We ARE your office, allowing you time to do your business.

Hi All! I guess I never formally introduced myself to the community. I am sixteen and into all things technology - networking, 3D printing, builds, and much more. Over the past two years, I have taught myself the MDM framework of Apple (both iOS and Mac) using several providers: Jamf, AirWatch, Meraki (my personal favorite), Simple MDM, and MobileIron (to name a few). I do part-time IT consulting for 1:1 deployment, network builds, and blog about my experiences. Currently, I am working on training myself on Windows Server and AD implementation at a large scale. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions on Meraki MDM, I am also very active in that specific "sub" community here. . . so if you ask, I may respond to your post!

My first networking experience was with a peer-to-peer run over Coax.  If I remember correctly, it seemed to be pretty reliable but had issues with collisions...and obviously bandwidth. 

Kind of a big deal

Re: Please introduce yourself

@cmiarshvac - except for when someone unplugged the coax cable from their machine - anywhere on the network - taking the whole coax segment down.  I always had that happening when people were moving machines around.

The caption on the picture should read 10base5 not 10base2  ( I am getting old)

 

The DEC transceivers where added to the coax with a "vampire" tap,   We used to have to drill a hole in the coax and be careful not to short the shielding out with the center conductor.

 

The good old days!  🙂

I worked with a former DEC field service engineer in the PDP 11 days.  He was quite a character.  His DEC employee number was quite low in the 100's I think.
