Stocks in this article: MERU

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and MELBOURNE, Australia, March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Meru Networks (NASDAQ: MERU) and its Australian distributor Wavelink today announced expansion plans in the Australian region with the addition of a dedicated team of Meru technical sales professionals comprising territory account managers and sales engineers. Meru and Wavelink will bring Meru's advanced wireless solutions, easy to deploy and manage, to enterprises that are attempting to support the thousands of devices that are flooding their enterprises.  The team will focus on target markets including education, healthcare, enterprise, government and hospitality.

The team will work with end-customers in the design and implementation of Meru virtualized wireless WLANs that give IT managers an important degree of choice in deploying their mobility infrastructure. Wavelink's existing resellers located in Melbourne and Sydney will co-sell Meru WLAN solutions and lead network implementations in the K-12, healthcare, hospitality and enterprise markets. In addition, Wavelink will extend engineering and inside sales support out of the Sydney office.

These sales and engineering support capabilities are being added in the Australian market during a period of high growth for wireless network technology in the region. Since forming the initial partnership with Meru in 2009, Wavelink's sales of Meru's products have grown dramatically and the company is on track to increase its sales of Meru solutions by more than 50 percent year-over-year. Customers from a variety of vertical industries have turned to Wavelink and Meru for WLAN solutions, including:

James Cook University, the leading independent school in Haileybury; Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Australia's largest stadium and the world's largest cricket arena; Langham Hotels in Melbourne and Auckland, recognized as two of the Top 25 Luxury Hotels in the South Pacific; Regis, one of Australia's largest providers of aged care services; and Beca Engineering.

David Kelly, vice president of international sales for Meru Networks, said, "Meru and Wavelink have achieved fantastic results over the last two years as they have helped customers address the challenge of accommodating of the influx of Wi-Fi devices entering their environment daily. Working together we will jointly deliver solutions across the key vertical industries in Australia."

Meru's industry-leading integrated WLAN solutions are designed to deliver the scale, capacity, security and manageability necessitated by the BYOD phenomenon. Meru solutions are engineered from the ground up to be simple to use, easy to manage and provide a rapid return on investment as enterprises build out their wireless networks.
