As IT consultants in the Bay Area, we see a lot of startups. Small businesses with bold ideas filled with hard working people focused on achieving a specific goal. Usually in their infancy, these businesses focus all their time and money on the goal they are trying to achieve and usually don’t have the dedicated staff needed to support enterprise IT solutions. The employees are extremely sharp and very tech savvy, able to quickly piece together solutions to fit their needs that actually work pretty well. Ran out of ports on a switch? Order an inexpensive PoE switch and start daisy chaining them! More ports = problem solved. Same goes for wireless, if you have a dead spot, just get another AP. If you want video in a conference room, get some 3rd party camera to work with Google Hangouts.
Cloud networking deployments are meant to be simple, scalable, and effective. In this Fireside Chat LookingPoint CEO, Sean Barr, sits down with Network Engineer, Trevor Butler, to discuss cloud networking deployments, specifically our experience deploying Cisco Meraki into the network.
On February 2, 2017 Cisco announced a major issue affecting products from their routing, switching, security and server product lines. Reference Tables A through D below for a full list of affected products and part numbers.
Meraki does it again! Meraki is no longer just simplifying networking; they are on a mission to simplify IT as a whole. On Tuesday, September 13, 2016 Meraki announced the launch of a brand new product line; Security Cameras. Just like all things Meraki, the MV series is plug and play, requires no additional on-premise hardware and is 100% cloud managed. This means no more network video recorder (NVR) and no more standalone video management software (VMS). Best of all, MV cameras are configured, managed, and monitored on Meraki’s single pane of glass web dashboard alongside your wireless, switching, network security, mobility management, and communication solutions.
