I work for a Value Added Distributor for Latin America and Caribbean as CISCO & VMWARE S.E.
I've just got my CMNA the last week and delighted with Meraki solutions.
I have a dalmatian dog which name is "The Cow".
I have worked in IT for over 20 years and currently work for the John Lewis Partnership in the UK
I have working with Meraki AP's, switches and MX devices for the past 6 months
In my spare time I am part of Lowland Rescue and work with my qualified search dog
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!
A fun fact about yourself:

"And now for something completely different."
@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 a CMNO for the past 3 years, before that a CCNA from 2000. I've worked with cisco routers, switches, firewalls, and wireless, and now working with Meraki devices. In addition, I've used various other brands of network devices as well as various OS's and server brands.
Hi, Happy to be here
I am an IT officer in a big real state developer company managing our network infrastructure with Cisco products.
This would be my first to experience a Cisco Meraki Switches deployed in our other project.
I'd love to become versatile in all Cisco products in terms of IT infrastructure
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.
A bit about yourself & your work
I work in a big italian integrator since last year. I'm very excited with all the possibilities that Meraki offers and with many new projects underway.
Your experience with Cisco Meraki
Some deployments in Spain but, for now, only with the Wireless/Switches families.
A fun fact about yourself
My dog's name is....Meraki!
I work for Cox Communications in Las Vegas. I am the Network Administrator for the Las Vegas market. I have been with Cox since January of 2006, but my primary role revolved around telephony. It wasn't until about two years ago that my focus shifted to networking.
I am in the process of deploying several Meraki solutions to various locations in the Las Vegas market. My exposure has been through my counterparts in other markets. I'm looking to take a Meraki course to further my knowledge.
Presently service as Sergeant at Arms for a local 501(C)3 motorcycle group that assists children facing adversity.
I'm really, really new to networking. I work for a financial institution in West Michigan. I love how easy it is to maintain Meraki MX65W's.
Though I've been into each of our 30+ Meraki switches multiple times, my real networking and/or Cisco Meraki networking experience is just starting!
I studied Greek, Latin, and German and Hebrew for a combined 8 years. Never did translate completely to a knack for programming though
Hello! I have been in the networking area for 5 years and I work in a Cisco Gold Partner in Brazil. I have little experience with Cisco Meraki, but my goal is to change this scenario.
I own an MSP business and we are a Cisco Select Partner. We work within the SMB size companies within many verticals (Healthcare/Construction/Engineering/Financial)
We have been integrating Meraki as our preferred vendor for over 1 year in our new and existing clients networks and really like the solution
I designed my first webpage when I was 12 (1995)
I'm an IT-Consultant and since two months, I work in a Company in Germany, that only use Cisco Produkts.
My first experience that I made with Cisco Meraki was two months ago, when i started in this company, but since than I've learned really much about many of the Meraki Products.
I hardly never wear T-Shirts for work, but when I do, it'll be Cisco T-Shirts.

Hi, glad to be here and able to share experiences with Meraki peers all over the world!
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.
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.
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.
I have been working in larger international enterprise environments for 15 years. Working for another international company now supporting everything under the sun.
I have been on TV in forty-eight US states - local broadcasts, not national.
