Hey Bob, we ran out of mounting brackets.
No problem Jim, I've got an idea…
When I was in Banff recently, I saw this AP at a construction site.
The odd thing is I don't recognize it and can't find it on meraki.com. Any ideas?
I was in a concert hall yesterday and spied two APs in the ceiling, practically on top of each other.
On the left is an Aruba AP from TELUS (their TELUS Direct WiFi) and on the right is a Cisco AP from Shaw (their ShawOpen WiFi).
Anyone want to bet they totally worked together to avoid co-channel interference? 🙄
The Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge in Banff Alberta has UBNT everywhere. I like the simple look and lighting of these UniFi line of APs. They remind me of little flying saucers hovering near the ceiling. 👽
Cisco TACOPS has the NERV but also has some light duty vehicles that can supplement the NERV or be dispatched on their own. I took these photos of the vehicles parked on the Cisco campus in RTP, NC.
Here's a 1552E outdoor AP on the SUV. Cisco TACOPS SUV

In addition to the SUV, there's a communications trailer which mimics the capabilities of the NERV, including the mast with the 1552E on it.
NERV is the Network Emergency Response Vehicle and is an asset used by Cisco's Tactical Operations (TACOPS) team when they respond to emergencies.

The vehicle based in California (there are two in the US, one in San Jose, CA and one in Raleigh, NC) toured through western Canada in 2015. Among its extensive communications capabilities is, of course, Wi-Fi.
