How did the MX gets its name?

MV makes sense, Meraki Video.

MR makes sense, Meraki Radio.

MS makes sense, Meraki Switch.

 

MX.  What is the X meant to present?

Re: How did the MX gets its name?

Found on a reddit post lol

MR = Meraki Radios (wireless)

MS = Meraki Switching

MX = Meraki Security (x because it "crosses" so many technologies)

MV = Meraki Vision (cameras)

MC = Meraki Communication (phones)

MI = Meraki Insight (application preformance)

SM = Systems Manager (device management)

MF = What we say when it doesn’t work

Re: How did the MX gets its name?

I always thought MX because can function like a router and there's packets going everywhere. Smiley Happy Yes, I may sometimes imagine network architecture as diverging diamond intersections. Don't @ me.

Re: How did the MX gets its name?

I have a theory that MR is not Radio, but is in fact Router. 

 

 

Getting noticed

Re: How did the MX gets its name?

The X in MX might refer to Extensible Threat Management, often referred to as XTM. 

This essentially is a extension of Unified Threat Manage (UTM).
