|Includes: Meru Networks, Inc. (MERU)

Meru Networks, a prominent player in the wireless networking space, announced today that BDP would be future-proofing its voice and data network, boost productivity and enhance collaboration and staff creativity through the utilization of a Meru wireless solution. BDP is a major international practice of architects, designers, engineers and urbanists. The network will support BDP offices in London, Bristol, Sheffield, Birmingham, Manchester, and Glasgow. The WLAN will also facilitate secure, instant access for visitors, using Meru's Identity Manager solution.

"We wanted a WLAN that would help ensure high performance of both voice and data over IP now and in the future," said Steve Peary, IT operations manager for BDP. "Our architects and designers working in the studios are always in and out of meeting rooms and break-out sessions in our main open-plan office environment. Being available all the time is critical for collaboration."

BDP, which provides specialist architectural, design, engineering, sustainability, and urban planning services, also plans to use the Meru Wi-Fi network for its deployment of Microsoft Lync. The deployment is designed to enable delivery of both voice and data. Meru worked with a Meru Gold Partner, Building Zones, to construct a work environment that emphasizes the company's foundational belief that technological innovation should enhance business productivity.

"BDP is committed to enabling the highest levels of collaboration to enhance productivity and creativity among its employees and clients," said Steve Woolley, UK sales manager for Meru. "We are extremely pleased that BDP selected Meru to support their multi-city wireless deployment and are delighted that the technology has become integral to the way they do business."
