re: Unwiring Healthcare It was an interesting story but it did read more like a press release than analysis of an industry issue. Then I note the flashing "Meru Networks" banner to the right of the page. It wasn't "analysis" it was "advertorial". While I recognize that Unstrung is a commercial enterprize I have come to expect very much better than the reworking of a press release. That is why I read Unstrung.

re: Unwiring Healthcare Richard Martin either Dan Jones "Clark Kent" indentity or there is a new "Senior Editor" for Unstrung.

Otherwise, agree with millo....this was the worst piece in Unstrung in years

re: Unwiring Healthcare Well, it's nice to know I've made such a positive first impression. A couple of responses:
1. Needless to say, we here at Unstrung observe the church & state distinction -- which means that I have no control over the placement/timing of ads and the ad dept. has no editorial control. I agree that in this case the juxtaposition was unfortunate.
2. I call 'em as I see 'em. In other words, we chose to do this story because it's an interesting case study of a big enterprise installing a new networking technology. The hospital folks had good things to say about the Meru system ( as well as a couple of qualifiers). Had they said "This sucked," I would have reported that as well.
3. "Worst story on Unstrung in years," eh? I'd be glad to hear more on why you think that.

Thanks for commenting,

RM

re: Unwiring Healthcare I think what previous poster are trying to say, which I agree with, is that we expect more of a "in your own words" analysis in the editorial section, not a reprint of a press release.

A lot of vendor have installations in large enterprise and hospitals. It would be nice to see what set Meru's solution apart and what your viewpoints are, aside from what was already stated in the press release.

re: Unwiring Healthcare I don't think that is what the previous writer was saying. Here is his/her quote...

'Then I note the flashing "Meru Networks" banner to the right of the page. It wasn't "analysis" it was "advertorial". '

Thats a serious allegation to make against a publisher. I don't think RBMartin can be accused of that for doing his job.

re: Unwiring Healthcare Lets face it
It was a lame story about a lame company that is about to run out of cash.

No offense to the Land of Lincoln, but St. John's Hospital of Springfield, Ill. is not exactly a hotbed of innovation. How many access points and end users -- it might be worth discussing. 700 beds equals how many users?

Best part of the story is when they admitted the problems they went through. Give credit for that.

re: Unwiring Healthcare It certainly isn't a large deal to brag about, but significant to a small startup like meru.

The AP to user ratio is to die for though:

>>The new network, currently in its second phase of installation, will eventually include 400 access points and some 300 to 400 total users

1 user per AP? I really don't see how they can run into installation problems with near non-existent load.

re: Unwiring Healthcare The story if perfectly fine. The remarks appear to be spurious at best. I don't see what the point is on posting remarks that add little true value to the overall community.
