Re: Please introduce yourself

My name is Craig and I am the Technology Director at Randolph School District, Wisconsin. I oversee and manage all things technology, wired and wireless infrastructure, classroom technology, building technology, phones, access control, printing, teacher/student/administration devices. Basically, if it plugs into a wall outlet or a network jack, I get called. We have a Meraki Wireless system and love it.

Greetings,

My name is Kurt and I am a Systems and Network Administrator for the Yuma District Hospital in eastern Colorado. We are a 12 bed rural hospitl and associated clinic with an IT staff of 3. Our responsibilities include everything low voltage, hardware support and software support.

We finished a transition to Meraki switches in June from Cisco switches. I am enjoying learning about the Meraki system and the comparative ease to Cisco for programming. The web interface is such a change from what I am used to.

I am excited to share knowledge with other folks here in the community.

I've been using Meraki stuff since 2012 I think, at the small medical practice I support, and at a couple of companies I started, and also at home. I really love the software, it's such a nice refuge from the terrible embedded stuff that has existed on network equipment since forever. 

Cheers,

Hi,

I am Keson, an ISO and Network Manager.  I have been using Meraki for quite a few years, before it came to Cisco.  I love the product, and most of all the support model.  Now with the community, I like it even better because I believe in the wisdom of the crowd and the sharing spirit.  Imagine a world without googling, web surfing, online communities!  Anything one looks for, or experienced, someone else had the same ideas and perhaps tried before. Wisdom is shared so freely and informative.

Hi everyone.  I'm Andrew Murphy.  I work for Stephenson Equipment Inc.  We use Meraki gear to connect our networks.  I'm a big fan of the dashboard and the training that Meraki and it's partners give out.  It's a great way to get into Network/Firewall/Routing without having to know the full code.

Hi all,

 

I'm an IT technician and network/systems engineer with a print company based out of Scotland. We're full Meraki stack for networking (multiple MX, MS and MR across many sites), and we're pretty happy with it. We transitioned from an aging standard Cisco stack (ISR+Catalyst network, disorganised wifi and access switches).

Hi, All!

My name is Matthew, friends call me Matty.  I'm the Director of IT for a smallish, but national AV and Computer rentals company.  We're getting ready to open our 10 location soon.  Cisco shop, but I've been integrating and moving towards Meraki, and very happy about that.

Looking forward to this community for the same reason I am happy to be expanding my Meraki footprint...I like to do it myself when I can, but sometime, you just need a little help.  I hope I can share what I've learned as well!

My 'handle' was given to me years ago by an online friend and it suits me well...I love to fix messed up stuff.

Hi all,

Kevin here. I'm a systems/network admin here in the United States for Pioneer Balloon. We make latex and foil balloons and have about 10 sites across the US. We use Cisco for our switching and Meraki MX boxes and Meraki access points. The Meraki infrastructure has made it easier to manage our sites remotely for sure. It's great to be able to handle issues from anywhere and see what's going on at our sites.

 

Also been using the teleworker gateways for people who work from home a large percentage of the time. Has made it so much easier to support them.
