Meru Networks launches cloud-based networking solutions for enterprises

Telecom Lead India: Meru Networks, a provider of 802.11n
wireless enterprise networking solutions, has launched new Meru WLAN solutions.

These new solutions can be deployed on-premise, within
virtualized private cloud environments, or as subscription-based, hosted

Meru’s Virtual Mobility Controllers are VM ware-based
virtual appliances. These are designed to operate on standard x86 computing
platforms in datacenter or private cloud environments.

Meru’s E RF services and the Meru Identity Manager guest
access products are now available as virtual, hosted solutions. 

Our new virtual, cloud-based solutions give enterprises
greater choice and control over how wireless networks are deployed and managed.
 The result is a highly dynamic wireless environment, tuned for mobility
and able to meet the demands of users while realizing the benefits of cloud
computing and datacenter virtualization.”

The new solutions improve efficiency and datacenter
utilization while giving IT unprecedented choice and control with deployment
options that meet their individual needs and give them flexibility as they deal
with the flood of devices in the enterprise.

As BYOD stresses the limits of network capacity and WLAN
management, enterprises must explore new ways to serve the thousands of devices
and applications that enter the environment, while achieving operational
efficiency,” said David Kelly, vice president of International Sales for Meru

Solutions such as the ones now being offered by Meru
provide deployment flexibility and optimal management and control. The ability
to have virtual controllers, traditional appliance-based controllers or a mix
gives IT the ability to adopt new technology that suits the type and topology
of the enterprise, without compromising existing investments in network
infrastructure,” said Rohit Mehra, director of enterprise communications
infrastructure at IDC.


As a wireless systems integrator, we see hundreds of
customers who are looking for ways to cost-effectively deal with BYOD while
maintaining control of their environment and taking advantage of a variety of
deployment options. These new products will give our customers the ability
to meet the demand of BYOD and do so in the way that best suits their
environment and their budget,” said Craig Badrick, CEO of TTI-Wireless, a Meru
channel partner.
