If you're looking for a simple, powerful, and unified wired/wireless enterprise network solution, look no further than Cisco Meraki. I'll teach you how to programmatically interact with Meraki networks at scale using Python in this course.
Managing any modern network architecture is difficult as our infrastructure increases in size and complexity. In this course, Automating Cisco Meraki Operations Using APIs, you will learn foundational knowledge surrounding the wide variety of Meraki APIs available. First, you will learn how to create and update Meraki networks, which contain devices such as wireless access points and security cameras. Next, you will discover how to operate and manage security cameras in depth, including collecting and viewing live video footage. Finally, you will explore how to perform a variety of miscellaneous actions, such as setting up external captive portals, observing/reviewing client location data, and monitoring Meraki network performance using event webhooks. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Meraki automation needed to deploy and manage professional-grade Meraki networks.
Course Overview Hi, everyone. My name is Nick Russo, and welcome to my Automating Cisco Meraki Operations Using APIs course. With the fundamentals of software development and network programmability behind you, we can dig deeper into specific Cisco solutions by exploring their APIs. This course covers four main topic areas, building and managing Meraki device networks, integrating Meraki cameras and viewing their video footage, setting up captive portals for guest wireless clients, and exploring Meraki webhooks for location data and system alerts. After completing this course, you'll be able to programmatically configure, operate, and monitor your Cisco Meraki network. Before beginning this course, I'd recommend the following prerequisite courses. These three courses provide the foundation of software development and programmability skills that are extended in this course. The content around Git version control, Cisco products, and general APIs will be especially helpful. I'm assuming you already have a strong background in Python programming. This fourth course follows an enterprise scenario from day 0 to day N provisioning new routers, configuring them for daily operations, then monitoring them with streaming telemetry. I think this will provide useful context before digging into Meraki. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Automating Cisco Meraki Operations Using APIs, at Pluralsight.
