Meru Networks – The Virtualised Wireless Network Vendor

Meru envisaged a long time ago that enterprises would look to operate in a virtualised wireless network - no wires, simply a virtualised wireless LAN. When looking at what was required for an enterprise wireless LAN, Meru established that users needed to be able to rely on the virtualised wireless network to access content and applications needed to get their jobs done, as well as be prepared for the next generation of mobile applications and the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) market.

Meru Virtualised Wireless Network

Meru has created a unique architecture – a virtualised wireless network that has no boundaries. Custom-built, and with mobility in mind, Meru’s virtualised wireless LAN delivers seamless coverage with simple scalability to ensure smooth, predictable performance.

Meru’s enterprise wireless LAN is designed specifically for environments where high-density wireless traffic depends on business-critical applications. Meru initially focussed on BYOD heavy and network dependant areas such as hospitals, airports, universities, schools, hotels however its enterprise wireless LAN can now be found in enterprises of all sizes and all industries across the world.

Meru Wireless BYOD Solution

As a wireless network vendor, Meru recognises the impact that BYOD has made on enterprises and therefore offers a wireless BYOD solution that is able to keep up with the rapid consumerisation of IT.
