This is just an idea I had where community members can share what interesting tasks or projects they might be working on this week. This idea might take off or it might flop so lets see how it goes.
I'll start, this week I have a bit of preperation for some major events my company has planned for next week. I am also writing up a job description for a new role I have to fill in 2020 and I am undertaking a review of our security policies and doing a bit of an audit.
Hardware wise there isn't much planned for this week but its only Monday so time will tell.
I'm also thinking about an opinion piece for LinkedIn lementing the poor state of the Cisco Partner network (as opposed to Cisco Meraki), how the percentage of partners leading with Cisco solutions has nose dived; how many partners only sell Cisco on a transactional basis (aka if requested by the customer), and how Cisco Partners surveys don't reveal the extent of the issue because partners who are not "engaged" don't respond - distorting the results.
This week I am working on getting one of the world's leading health research institutions and hospital to realise that their WiFi system is not only not fit for purpose but that it is a security risk, and getting in the way of delivering required services.
I have just walked past tens of millions of dollars worth of state of the art ray-gun style machines, yet the WiFI APs are krap (#Meraki London are you listening?) and belong on the Antiques Road Show. All IT management and support is "outsourced"
We are preparing to rollout 200+ mv cameras, access points and switches within a large aged care facility. Replacing all generic degraded systems with a standard meraki platform. this will be the customers second site now being upgraded with meraki with another 3 to go.
the kicker here is, all the MVs are going to be attached to the wifi network, pressure on.
