    The popularity of smartphones and tablets has affected nearly every IT organization and can have significant impact on the network. How many Apple iOS devices connected to the network in the past day?

  3. 3

    Video streaming applications can consume large amounts of data but are often difficult to control. What’s the lowest speed that video streaming applications can be throttled to?

  4. 4

    As network capacity needs grow, it’s important to understand how efficiently resources are used. How many switch ports were active over the last day?

  5. 5

    As switches approach maximum port utilization, it’s important to understand what kinds of devices are on the network. What are the top 3 client device manufacturers on the network (i.e., the most common client devices)?

  6. 6

    How can Meraki help you achieve your business goals? Hint: this is an important question, and the answer isn’t in the Meraki dashboard. You’re on your own for this one. Don’t forget to submit your answers and end the Challenge once you’re done.
