Documentation Digest (May 24 - June 24, 2019)

Hi Community,

 

Below are the most important changes to our documentation between May 24 - June 24, 2019:

 

Week of 6/17

MX84 Overview and Specifications
Change: Updated maximum LAN clients to 200 to match the datasheet.

Run Dark Mode
Change: Added MR45 and MR55 to list of models that support dark mode.  Added a note that the “Blink LEDs” tool overrides dark mode.

Auto Channel
Change: Updated navigation steps for excluding DFS channels.

 

 

Week of 6/10

Supported USB Modems
Change: Moved modem “Novatel Wireless Global Modem USB730L” from current to EOS table.

Packet Capture - MS Switches
Change: Added note stating MS120 and MS125 do not support dashboard-based packet captures from ports connected to other MS switches in the same network.

MX Cellular - TMobile Support
Change: Added TMobile as a certified carrier.

Location Analytics - Proximity Graph
Change: Added note stating “If clients are using randomization techniques, location analytics may be detecting falsified/anonymous client IDs, and this should be considered when analyzing location data.”

Client VPN
Change: Added note stating “Establishing a client VPN connection when the client is located on the LAN of the MX is unsupported.”

Port Management Privileges
Change: Clarification on where settings for port privileges are located for combined and non-combined networks.

Cameron - you might want to add the mobile phone network EE as compatible with the LTE modem in the Z3C-HW-WW. Apart from myself, I know that it was tested in the London Meraki office by network engineer Connor Loughlin. EE is the network most favoured by corporates and professionals. So it is a good name to put up as compatible. I've got it working in the basements of London hospitals and on the High Speed train.

@Uberseehandel ,

 

I think our documentation was unclear, so I rephrased and added some clarity for all documents mentioning compatible carriers.

 

"Carrier compatibility is based on Meraki device certifications being approved by the carrier. A carrier being listed [on the certified carriers list] means that they have certified Meraki's product for their cellular network. Although Meraki can test networks and many unlisted carriers may be functionally compatible with Meraki devices, the list of certified carriers is based on the carrier validating Meraki, and not the other way around."

 

EE Limited is a GCF-listed carrier and likely works with the product, but they have not certified our devices yet.

 

Hopefully that's a bit more clear now!

Thanks for the clarification.

 

As somebody who has worked with some of the larger UK/EU/Latin America MNOs, I can see that there might be a problem with the Meraki approach to acquiring the required device certifications, unless Meraki has a team which reaches out to the various carriers and provides an environment that the carriers may use to acquire the required "certification".

 

I wonder who Cisco and Meraki have their own mobile phone contracts with in the UK.
