Thanks to everyone who came and joined me at Cisco Live! Melbourne WiSP labs! It was great to meet you, talk with you about your current and planned deployments, and have the chance to get hands on with the labs. For those who didn't do the API lab (and those who did), check out create.meraki.io for some very cool beginner through to advanced tutorials and labs you can do in your own time. Also, in big news, we have just launched the Learning Hub, right here in the Meraki community. Head on over to community.meraki.com/learninghub to find out what training and certifications are available to assist you in extending your Meraki knowledge. Thanks again for making it such a great Cisco Live! (and stay tuned those who posted selfies with me...) Nathan

As the Enterprise Account Manager assigned to the Empire, I take a different view here. I had been trying to get the Empire to adopt Meraki like technologies for years, with no success, and it ultimate led to their downfall. Here is why: Cloud Controlled Everything: - If the Empire could monitor Storm Trooper suits, like we monitor clients with the Meraki Dashboard, there is no way that Han Solo could have stolen one of our suits and impersonated our guards. A remote wipe of these devices would also have proven useful here. - Just as we set port security schedules and SSID advertisement, we could easily set security schedules within our facilities to prevent those pesky rebels snooping around unmanned areas. Advanced Security: - Those rebels are constantly trying to gain access to systems so comprehensive Geo-based firewall rules, IPS/IDS and AMP are crucial in keeping our digital systems healthy. Resiliency: - The Empire did not guarantee 99.99% uptime with redundant control planes around the universe. This is a must have for any Empire Class organization! The Fatal Flaw: - Making your factory reset 2 meters wide (about the size of a Womp rat) is ridiculous! I advise factory reset buttons to be no bigger than a standard paperclip. Try hitting that Skywalker! Just my 2 cents.
