Meru says four new applications will help its Service Assurance appliance line provide high availability and quality to its Virtual Cell Wi-Fi networks.


Meru Networks' wants to build innovative products that empower the all-wireless enterprise. "We're seeing more customers wanting to use iPhones and BlackBerrys indoors, where 3G signal isn't strong enough," said Ram Appalaraju, senior vice president of marketing.

These new offerings are designed to run on Meru's service assurance appliances, delivering the proactive measurement and service-level automation tools that operators need to efficiently ensure availability and quality.
