Cisco announces the Meraki acquisition and the next day here  I am installing another MR16.

I met Meraki a few years back at a trade show.  They were there introducing a small product line, a long with handing out cool brown t-shirts.  (you don't see much of brown in the tech world)  The enthusiasm they had about the products and the company is what caught my attention.  I followed their progress and soon there after started using the AP units.  I continue to recommend their products and the over all cloud network solution. 

Take a look at the references sited below to find out more about the company.


Meraki brings the benefits of the cloud to edge and branch networks, delivering easy-to-manage wireless, switching, and security solutions that enable customers to seize new business opportunities and reduce operational cost. Whether securing iPads in an enterprise or blanketing a campus with WiFi, Meraki networks simply work.


"The privately held company, which has about 330 employees, has midmarket customers that Cisco can't reach. Meraki counts Applebee's, Starbucks, a bevy of school districts and state and local government customers."
