Meru Networks Inc. has released a new WLAN platform that can be used on customers’ premises, in virtualized private clouds or as subscription-based, hosted applications.
The new Virtual Mobility Controllers are VMware-based virtual appliances that operate on standard x86 computing platforms in data centers or a private cloud. In addition, the E(z)RF services and Meru Identity Manager guest access products also are now available as virtual, hosted solutions. Meru’s CEO, Ihab Abu-Hakima, said the company’s new cloud products give enterprises more control over how they deploy and manage their wireless networks.
"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 Ihab Abu-Hakima, CEO of Meru.
Meru sells through channel partners.
