All knowledge shared in this video is from my own experience with the platform.** Cisco Meraki, what the heck is it? Cisco Meraki is a cloud based platform you need to know as a network engineer. Meraki, purchased in 2012 by Cisco Systems started out as a cloud based Enterprise Wireless Networking solution. The MR device family includes all Cisco Meraki Access Points. The Meraki portfolio has since been expanded over the years to include the MX Security Appliances, the MS switching family, new additions to the MR access points to support WiFi 6 deployments, their best in class MV video cameras, the MT Internet of Things sensors, the MG Cellular Gateway and of course we cannot forget the software offerings such as Systems Manager for Mobile Device Management (MDM) and Meraki Insight for Application health monitoring, VoIP health monitoring and WAN health monitoring.
