Meru Momentum In Education Sector Accelerates With Over 1,000 Schools Migrated From Their Microcell Products To Meru's Virtualized Wireless LAN Solution

"We selected Meru's single-channel approach and ability to support high densities of wireless users – over 1,000 students on our campus in Hawthorn, Victoria," said David Micallef, head of technology for Bialik College. "With Meru, there is no channel interference and our students, teachers and staff are now connected in the classroom and across campus – online and wire-free."

Ubiquitous Wireless Coverage and Proliferation of Devices Drives Demand

Each semester, thousands of freshmen arrive at universities all over the world with the expectation to connect wirelessly to the campus network with a diverse range of mobile devices such as the iPad, smartphone, laptop and the iPod Touch, while running IPTV in their dorms. Because the adoption of wireless devices is a way of life in these environments, schools are increasingly looking to provide the most high-performance networks for their students, faculty and staff and offer a Wireless-like-Wire™ experience.  

Meru's virtualized WLAN architecture allows the school to plan and manage a campus-wide network and stack channels for extra capacity in dense user areas such as lecture halls and auditoriums. Meru also provides airtime fairness for all mobile devices, enabling students to achieve maximum performance as each device operate at different protocol rates.

For a live demonstration of Meru's solutions for the education market, Meru will be exhibiting at ISTE 2010 in Booth #2520 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver this week. For more information on the event, please visit; http://center.uoregon.edu/ISTE/2010/
