A bit about yourself & your work:


Greetings! I am the senior Network Facilitator for a medium-sized public school system located in south-eastern Michigan, where I have worked for roughly 23 years. Like many organizations we have a very small Technology Department staff. As a result, we stay very busy. We certainly never get bored but neither do we have much time for daily system monitoring or learning complex new tools.

 

Your experience with Cisco Meraki:

 

Our first venture into wireless included about 200 Cisco AP's managed with a WLC Appliance.We found the management interface to be a bit cumbersome and not terribly intuitive. Over the past few years we have been experimenting with a few pairs of Meraki Outdoor AP's to provide connectivity to our athletic fields and digital signage. The Meraki Dashboard was very easy to navigate and monitoring the devices was so much easier than what we were use to.

 

Over the last several months we have been working with a local partner to upgrade our wired and wireless infrastucture. We chose Meraki AP's primarily because of the Dashboard. We are just wrapping up the installation of just over 500 AP's (MR52's and MR66's) in eleven buildings. We have gained a fair amount of knowledge during the installation, but still have much more to learn, especially in troubleshooting client connectivity issues. I hope to take the basic certification course soon. Very excited!

My name is Kam and I am working in IT support as a Technical Support Lead. I am mentoring a small local IT team as well.

Meraki Experience, I am very new to Meraki. We recently started using it. So I think that there is a long way to go for this in future. But it is really interesting to learn and I enjoying reading and doing more with Meraki products. I like to say that good work from Cisco. I also see that Meraki is the future. :-)

Hello everyone:

 

 

  • A bit about yourself & your workI'm a Pre-sales Engineer, I work for a partner in Austin, Tx. I have been in networking since a graduated from College in Mexico. I worked there in different Cisco Partners and then move to the US. My main technology is Collaboration but I've learned a little bit about all the other technologies.
  • Your experience with Cisco MerakiI've been learning about Meraki for the past 3 years, I did the CMNA and have all the gear at home, and we are using it. I like a lot the platform and the easy way to administer the devices.
  • A fun fact about yourselfI like to spend my spare time with my family and I love to go hiking and camping a lot!!! 

 

Kind of a big deal

Re: Welcome! Please introduce yourself.

@MeredithW I was thinking - it might be a good idea to start a new one of these every month (or even every quarter if it is too much work).  This saves them gowing too large, and it means whenever someone joins in the number of emailed out messages would reduce a lot (to basically just those who had signed up in the last month).

I'm Tony.  I'm working as an IT Systems Administrator, so I do a mix of networking, Powershell, Active Directory etc.  I've used Meraki at my past jobs, but this is my first time managing a network.  So far it's all good.  A little fun fact about me is that, I have my commercial pilot's license, and I'm a US Army veteran, I used to work on Boeing Apache helicopters as a crew chief.  See my avatar.

Hi, glad to be here and able to share experiences with Meraki peers all over the world!

 

  • A bit about yourself & your work

I have been in IT for 19 years now. Started out as an allround system administrator running a large Novell Netware network with Nortel Baystack switches. Built out the WAN for that organization and enjoyed that very much. I have been working with Cisco since 2003 and started my own business in 2006. Fast forward to 2019, I'm now a CTO for that business, a Netherlands based but internationally operating Cisco Partner. We focus on networking and security and we almost exclusively sell Cisco products. I'm a Cisco Champion since 2017 and love to solve problems for customers.

 

  • Your experience with Cisco Meraki

We're using Meraki as a service to our clients. We sell cloud-managed networks including daily operations. The networks we operate vary from 1 AP to around 800 in the largest deployment. We've been using Meraki for a couple of years and find it very quick to deploy standardized networks for our clients.

 

  • A fun fact about yourself

I like to be outdoors so in my spare time I like to ski or hike in the mountains. To that end I've bought a vacation appartment in a German mountain region where my family and me like to spend as much time as possible. I also own several barbecues because I like to cook outdoors. My current collection consists of a Smoker, a Weber, a portable BBQ, a cast iron BBQ and an Uuni 3 pizza oven. Also I built a Tandoori oven out of clay pots.
