IGEL Tech Memories from Sébastien Pérusat – December 2021

Dear IGEL Community,

It’s difficult to speak about 2021 without using the terms pandemic or covid, but I will try to! What a year… 2021 was the first year for me, not being part of the Sales Architecture but in Dougs Team, in the IGEL Community Team, so: your team! I must say that it was different then 2020, obviously not only for me but all of us.

Acting as someone who is a full time IGEL Community Employee was something I was scared of, I had the fear to lose the fun part but it wasn’t, not at all. I’m happier than ever before, and that’s because of all of you. Every question, every challenge, every issue, every fun you shared in 2021 made us even stronger…


So: thank you for all you did and contributed, as small as they could be, they helped us! Now, enough emotions, let’s list some hard facts!


What did IGEL in 2021? Only watching Netflix and ate some Icecream? No..


We released 36 Firmware releases, 6 Regular (without retired ones) and 26 Private Builds

We published 7 Universal Management versions

4 IGEL Cloud Gateways hit the market
