Meru Networks And SolarWinds Partner To Provide Enterprises With Best-in-Class, Multi-Vendor Network And Performance Management

Meru Networks, Inc., (NASDAQ:MERU), a leader in 802.11n virtualized wireless LAN solutions for enterprise networking, and SolarWinds®, Inc. (NYSE:SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management solutions to more than 93,000 customers worldwide, today announced a partnership that will enable Meru to resell SolarWinds’ award-winning Orion® Network Performance Monitor (NPM) with its E(z)RF Network Manager product.

“As wireless connectivity moves from being a convenience to mission-critical, we believe organizations require a comprehensive management solution that can monitor, diagnose and predicatively manage application services on the wireless network,” said Ram Appalaraju, senior vice president of marketing at Meru. “The Meru Service Assurance Platform is designed to offer enterprises a best-in-class solution that ensures all applications are delivered with a Wireless-like-Wire™ experience. The SolarWinds relationship will allow Meru to offer two complementary network management solutions that when used in conjunction enable customers to predictively and proactively manage their complete network infrastructure and highly-optimize business-critical applications.”

Meru’s Wired and Wireless Management solution combines Orion NPM’s multi-vendor, powerful end-to-end network and availability performance monitoring for network resources from routers, switches, servers, wireless controllers and access points and E(z)RF Network Manager’s detailed wireless performance dashboards, RF visualization and fault correlation and reporting to provide enterprises with comprehensive network visibility, across both wireless and wired networks. IT organizations will be able to use E(z)RF Network Manager and Orion NPM together to increase efficiency in the initial deployment and ongoing operation of their entire network. In addition, when issues do occur, IT departments will be able to evaluate the business impact of the issue within minutes, across the entire wired-wireless network infrastructure. Without this complete visibility, the troubleshooting process can literally take days to evaluate, including expensive site visits.

“Meru’s desire to include Orion NPM as a key element of their Wired and Wireless Management solution provides SolarWinds with a unique opportunity to create a working relationship with a fast-growing wireless network provider,” said Sanjay Castelino, vice president, product management and product marketing, SolarWinds. “As companies increase their reliance on wireless networks as a part of their overall IT infrastructure, we have seen more and more requests for Meru support from users in our online community, thwack. With a number of common customers already in place, this relationship with Meru will allow us to address the current needs of our users while also providing productivity and efficiency benefits for enterprises of all sizes, across the various vertical markets.”
