Hi Carl. How have you been? Awesome, good to hear. VLANs? Yeah, I can help you with that. Your network is like a field of sheep and a VLAN is like having a Border Collie that knows to pick out and gather certain sheep together. Add another sheep and the Border Collie looks at a tag on that sheep and figures out which group it goes into. Why would you do that? Well, maybe some sheep have great wool or know how to make a call on a VoIP phone. Others are more tasty and should only talk to file servers. Who knows, but the tag defines the group and the dog puts them where they belong and can't escape. No mixing! We good? Excellent. You buy.

A bit about yourself & your work Hi Folks. Ben Greisler here and I have been a computer consultant for about 20 years at this point. I specialize in Apple technologies and have been involved in the Apple ecosystem as much as I can. I consult, train, write and lecture. Your experience with Cisco Meraki I started as a Meraki Partner before the Cisco acquisition. It is one of the few products that I sell and every client I have placed the product in has loved it. Great performance and reliability. A fun fact about yourself I'm probably the only person who got a standing ovation after teaching a class about DNS. Then again the participants may have been just happy it was over 🙂
