Meru White Paper - SDN for WiFi

For business professionals to doctors to middle school students—and everyone in between—there is never enough Wi-Fi. With mobile devices and cloud services reshaping how we work, live and play, people expect fast, reliable Wi-Fi everywhere. For IT, meeting the exploding mobility demand requires a more agile wireless LAN. As the network edge transitions to all-wireless, software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow are emerging as a way to bring new levels of agility and enable IT to meet users’ expectations for a superior application experience from their mobile devices.

Virtual Instruments Whitepaper - Private Cloud Computing Performance

It’s no secret that cloud computing is enabled by advancements in virtualisation, and with all the benefits of virtualisation come some challenges. There are many tools to help identify performance problems, but at the end of the day, the whole subject of performance is a sort of a black art, not quite a science. A great deal of performance optimisation is still dependent on rules of thumb and best guesses, plus brute-force over-provisioning. But it doesn’t have to be. There’s a new class of tools out there designed to work with, and optimize the ‘virtual infrastructure’, the building block of cloud computing, and with those tools come some new IT best practices.

Meru White Paper - MicroCell Deployments: Making a Bad Problem Worse for Pervasive Wireless LAN Deployments

Wireless LANs are widely used in enterprises, homes and hot spots to provide connectivity to the Internet or network resources without wires. They are on their way to becoming ubiquitous, with almost everyone with a mobile laptop having the ability to connect to a Wi-Fi access point at home, on the road or at the office. Wireless LANs provide up to 54 Mbps of over-the-air bandwidth with 802.11g, reaching effective throughputs of ~24 Mbps in ideal conditions. 802.11g is the most popular wireless LAN standard currently being deployed, as it offers backwards compatibility with the previous generation of 11 Mbps 802.11b devices.
