Meru Brings The Wireless Edge Outdoors With First 1.3 Gbps, Rugged, Three-Radio, Three-Stream Access Point

Stocks in this article: MERU

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Meru Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:MERU), announced the availability of a new, rugged outdoor Wi-Fi access point designed to deliver uncompromising wireless in outdoor environments.  The Meru OAP433e brings state-of-the-art, virtualized Wi-Fi to the thousands of devices being used across education and corporate campuses, hotels, shopping malls and stadiums. The three-radio, three-stream device is the first three-radio, three-stream 802.11n outdoor access point in the industry with 1.35 Gbps of datarate capacity. It is the most powerful access point in its class and is designed to work with Meru's unique virtual WLAN operating system, System Director 5.

"Meru is expanding the boundaries of the wireless enterprise by bringing high-capacity, high performance and highly-reliable WLAN infrastructure to thousands of users who are on the go, both indoors and out," said Kamal Anand, VP of Product Management for Meru. "The enterprise is no longer bound by bricks and mortar.  People require reliable network access as they travel between buildings, enter stadiums, move across campuses––and they expect their applications and Wi-Fi devices to perform flawlessly.  In addition, as more and more users bring their own devices (BYOD) into the environment, the WLAN must be intelligently scalable and secure to serve the needs of a vast number of device types and applications being used simultaneously, and on the go.  Our new OAP433e brings all the reliability and performance that our internal access points are known for, and does it in a ruggedized, outdoor-ready form factor."

The new access point is integrated with Meru System Director™ 5, the industry's only virtual wireless operating system that effectively controls and optimizes wireless connectivity across the RF spectrum. Through its unique Air Traffic Control® technology, System Director 5 enables thousands of devices and applications to seamlessly access network resources simultaneously, ensuring equal access for all, even as these devices are being used by people on the go. Traditional client in control WLAN architectures cannot meet the challenge of BYOD because their legacy design lets devices choose how and where to connect, with no regard for other devices or applications. Client in control architectures are unable to provide the scale necessary for BYOD, and often provide inconsistent reliability and compromised quality of service—especially as users move from place to place.
