SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Meru Networks, the global leader in wireless VoIP infrastructure, announced today that it has further strengthened its executive management team with the addition of industry veteran, and a former Engineering leader of Cisco's Access Business Unit, Om Tiku, as Vice President of Engineering.

Prior to joining Meru, Mr. Tiku spent over nine years at Cisco, where he was responsible for the concept, architecture, development and delivery of an enterprise branch and small office family of routers, including the first industry standards-based Mobile Access Router. Under Mr. Tiku's direction, Cisco introduced multiple products for highly mobile environments, including the mission-critical Public Safety markets. In addition to these accomplishments, Mr. Tiku's tenure at Cisco included numerous innovations and awards, the introduction of key new technologies in the wireless, broadband access and security areas, and the growth, development and management of a global engineering organization.

"Om brings both years of successful engineering management, as well as recognized technological innovation to Meru," said Ihab Abu-Hakima, president and CEO for Meru Networks. "His expertise and in depth knowledge of mobile, WLAN and wired IP technologies made him the obvious choice to take our development organization to the next level of product leadership in wireless VoIP."

"Meru has clearly positioned itself at the forefront of wireless VoIP innovation with products that are clearly differentiated from its competitors," commented Om Tiku. "I am excited to be part of Meru's continued growth and success."

Before joining Cisco, Mr. Tiku was with Norand Corporation, where he managed and delivered the company's first Open Wireless LAN communication system. Prior to Norand, he was at Network Equipment Technologies, and held engineering positions with Avantek, California Microwave, and Indian Telephone Industries.
