  • Meru Networks, Inc. (MERU) Introduces Education-Grade Wireless 0 comments
    Nov 8, 2012 2:37 PM | about stocks: MERU

    Meru Networks announced the introduction of its new wireless platform, the Meru Education-Grade (NYSE:MEG). The platform was designed to assist educational IT departments by enhancing campus Wi-Fi networks to provide a more robust experience in bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments.

    Sunnyvale, CA-based Meru is focused on developing and distributing wireless LAN products that promise the operational simplicity combined with the advantages of mobility. Meru wireless LAN solutions are utilized in a myriad of industries such as education, hospitality, healthcare, and retail supply chain.

    Meru states that the benefits of the MEG platform allow students to connect to their campus network quickly and easily at all times. This is obtained using Meru's secure BYOD client provisioning and flexible guest management, a new AP332 802.11n near-Gigabit access point for lecture halls, classrooms, libraries, and other densely deployed areas, and a new MC6000 wireless controller with up to 200Gbps capacity for large campus data centers or centrally managing distributed campus environments.

    Sarosh Vesuna, VP & general manager of the education business unit for Meru Networks, said, "According to Gartner, Wi-Fi enabled devices will grow from less than 1 billion units in 2010 to more than 3 billion in 2015. A large number of these devices end up on university campuses. This growth is having a major impact on higher education IT professionals who are tasked with ensuring that wireless devices brought onto campus are on-boarded predictably and securely, regardless of the capacity crunch these devices place on the university"s Wi-Fi networks. The Meru Education-Grade wireless platform is designed to mitigate the impact of BYOD while enabling "uninterrupted learning" for the entire university population."

    "We can make better use of our Wi-Fi network now, using it as a utility rather than a mere form of access. Meru"s wireless platform enables our transformation to 21st century learning with flipped and hybrid classrooms, computer-based instruction, and unified communications and collaboration," said Peter Harvin, chief information officer for Anderson University.
