Hi my name is Paje' Jernigan. I work for Guilford County Government in North Carolina. I am on the networking/Telecom team. Currently we are deploying Meraki APs throughout our county. We did test the cameras but are currently not deploying any at this time. We are currently looking at the Meraki networking switches as possibly adding them to our network. We currently use Cisco switches for Layer 2 and 3 and some Dell switches for layer 2 connectivity. I look forward to working with more Meraki equipment.

Hi....My name is Brent.  I am what I would identify as a neophyte sys admin.  I really dig Meraki. So much so, that i created a little diorama of gummy bears in a one inch high model data center, nestled in the body of a MR42 box.

 

I especially like the wireless roaming affinity article/response, on why certain IOT devices seem to not roam when you think they should roam.

Hi, My name is David and I am a network engineer for a school system in New Orleans, I just got a Meraki certification and we have deployed Meraki AP's in a couple of our sites. I am currently renewing my CCNA and I hope to get a CCNP certification in Routing and Switching. I am looking at all the Cisco disciplines though for the CCNP. I think I am about to get laid off from the School Board, so I am looking at other jobs in IT. I figure certifying will help in an interview. When I am not at work I enjoy working on restoring my old New Orleans home, fishing and photography.

I see that you already have a CMNO - congratulations! At the moment there aren't Meraki training courses beyond the CMNO (unless you're a Cisco / Meraki partner), but we are working to build out additional options. Stay tuned!
