I am the CEO of the nonprofit that I founded in 2004. I remain committed to this day in providing crisis intervention services for the mentally ill and homeless, now nationwide. Please ask me more!!!!!!!
Good morning, do any of these Meraki wireless routers also support wireless mobile broadband connections, 4GLTE internet connections through my wireless provider, Sprint? I do not have traditional, hard wired, cable broadband internet service. Since I can be very mobile, I have found that the wired solutions are a waste of money. I would appreciate an expert’s insight here. The technical data sheets on all the Meraki wireless routers are way too complex for me to grasp. All I know is that it has to support a wireless cell 4GLTE signal - which a friend told me that one of Meraki’s does, but I cannot seem to nail it down. Thanks, Erik

Hi, I'm Erik, CEO of a small nonprofit agency in Kansas. Having started this project from the ground up myself in 2004 as a "locel" project has taken me by storm, growing into a nationwide organization this past 2 years. I provide publicly displaced persons, primarily mentally ill and homeless persons/families crisis intervention of some king, all dependent on each individual situation. I do this because I love people. I love helping the less fortunate than myself. I am also retired after a 25 year career with AT&T as one of the executive assistants to the AT&T Kansas President. Therefore I have a big interest in the success of international telecommunication companies and remain fascinated by the ever evolving technology. Having said that, and having also been a Cisco customer for 20 years, when the Meraki/Cisco project launched, I must say that I have gotten a bit addicted to learning the cloud structuring of communications - all of which you all do an excellent job at. I like Meraki because you are a no nonsense, more plug and play system - meaning that you are user friendly, and you can still give quality customer services at a very medium price point. Actually as well, I am getting ready to transition my agency from a traditional VOIP carrier to the Meraki/Cisco project after I learn what you all do and how you do it - how to optimize a custom system for my agency. If there are any Meraki/Cisco experts/managers out there that have worked with small nonprofits/smaller public service agencies, that you private message me on here - I would love to get some final opinions before launching Meraki - especially those knowledgeable on the Meraki/Cisco hardware setup. The hardware is ming boggling to me and I am truly having a hard time sorting out what does what because the entire hardware lineup is so multifunctional. So please email/message me on here - I need some final input here. If any reader here handles the State of Kansas where I am I would like to speak with you to at least get the ball rolling. I am thinking at this point of starting out with your free trial. I am also taking recommendations on carriers that provide services that work in sync with Meraki products. If I have it right, I guess there are many 3 party VOIP/internet providers that can power your systems. Have a wonderful week and I look forward to all of your replies. Peace, Erik
