This is my Meraki DMARC. My uplink is USB modem to T-Mobile and its performance is not too bad! I'm streaming video on my iPad and Apple TV, using my laptop and phone, and using all kinds of little wireless doodads to monitor my environment with my smart thermostat, mini/dot voice-activated devices, and phone app(s). This is in the trailer (and my lab), where I live and where I can use SD-WAN features to monitor and control my environment and give me remote access to systems inside. I hope to use Meraki capabilities (including a load-balancing regime across two mobile uplinks and perhaps a VPN) to make this a totally controlled remote environment wherever I go. For 2018 I hope to develop a means by which I can control and monitor Meraki devices at scale and help businesses develop smart tools to manage their network devices, with Meraki as the core for access and distribution. I only lack a camera or two to complete my remote management suite so I can monitor the area around my trailer to make sure no one is tampering with my lab. With POE and insulated wiring I can probably do that without the Meraki camera, but I sure would like to get one! I'm compiling a wish list: 1. Camera(s) 2. Second Meraki FW to establish full-time VPN tunnel to the lab, with mobile uplink. 3. Second Meraki AP to provide remotely manageable wireless environment on the opposite end. 4. Several examples of how to use the API to handle Merakis at scale and provide real-time configuration adjustment to meet the conditions of low bandwidth, poor signal/performance, unreliable connections in far-flung, remote areas. Meanwhile, I'll pursue my other passion: helping to manage a very complex, multi-site, IoT infrastructure for a company with its own challenges of far-flung, remote areas (but with a larger budget than mine!). I'm really looking forward to 2018! I hope to be finishing my CCNP certification and snagging a Network Programmability cert.
