Meru Service Platform Offers WLAN Optimization
The Meru Service Assurance Platform is designed to deliver an integrated suite of diagnostic, security and management tools.
Meru Networks Inc., announced plans to offer a suite of wired and wireless management security and compliance services that are designed to optimize Wireless LAN (WLAN) application performance for easier migration to an All-Wireless Enterprise. According to the news release on the company's website, these new management, security and diagnostic tools are designed to deliver IT organizations the ability to predictively and proactively manage and optimize the end-to-end performance of the entire WLAN infrastructure.
"The Meru Service Assurance Platform is designed to deliver an integrated suite of proactive diagnostic, security and management tools. Existing service offerings, including Service Assurance Manager, E(z)RF Network Manager and E(z)RF Location Manager, are complemented with a new set of security and diagnosis applications, Spectrum Manager, Intrusion Prevention, Compliance Manager and Wired and Wireless Management.
"We believe Meru is leading the transformation of the all-wireless environment with the only virtualized WLAN solution in the marketplace, delivering Wireless-like-WireTM. Meru is able to confidently offer enterprise these performance assurances because of its virtualized WLAN architecture, which leverages Virtual Cell technology. Because the Virtual Cell pools radio resources into a seamless layer of coverage, Meru avoids the artificial boundaries that legacy WLAN systems impose. As a result, all Meru Access Points (APs) use the same radio channels and appear as one, letting client devices move freely throughout a network without disruptive handoffs."
