Deploying a Cisco Mobility Express network

Deploying a Cisco Mobility Express network

My wireless network has been based on a WLC2504 controller with two 2602 AP’s. The network has been running quite well, with of course the caveats that came with the different WLC releases. With the maturity of Mobility Express (ME), the need for a dedicated controller for such as small sized wireless network has basically become obsolete as one of the AP’s becomes the master controller in the network. I was able to acquire 2 1852 AP’s with ME, time to upgrade my wireless network to 802.11ac with ME..

16 Dec 2017 – workshop long exposure

16 Dec 2017 – workshop long exposure

16 december I joined a workshop long exposure via Kijk en Zie fotoschool. And with the rough weather of that day, this could be promising for some nice photographs..

Taking photo’s with a long exposure is a style of photographing that I don’t have that much experience, only recently with night photography. But not in this way.. It is a very creative style of photography. Long exposures take the motion out of the water, creating quite a dreamy effect, up to a abstract surrealistic way. An exposure of 13 seconds or higher (tripod is of course required) results in flattened water. To remove some sharpness of the water and retain the motion an exposure of 0,5 – 3 seconds (depends on the light conditions and motion) is needed. Despite that I struggled with my ND1000 10-stops gray filter, I do believe I managed to get some very nice results.

FTD 6.2 and Remote Access VPN (anyconnect) configuration

With a week of PTO planned, it was time to configure and test RA VPN on my home environment. (more…)
