SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Meru Networks, Inc., a pioneer in 802.11n virtualized wireless networking, today announced upgrades to the Meru E(z)RF® Network Management Suite and introduced the new SA2000 Network Management Appliance. The combination of solutions streamlines management and optimization of large wireless networks and gives administrators the ability to easily provision, test, troubleshoot and optimize the wireless networks for higher overall quality of service while reducing IT overhead and cost.

Meru’s upgraded network management applications include the E(z)RF Network Manager 2.3, which provides centralized management of large enterprise installations and now scales to support hundreds of WLAN controllers and thousands of access points. The Meru Service Assurance Manager 1.2 and Spectrum Analyzer 1.1 leverage Meru’s unique virtual cell architecture to create virtual clients from idle access points, thereby enabling proactive, cost-effective network testing and validation. These applications streamline network analysis, testing and troubleshooting, and enable management of vast networks from a single web-based management console. The new Meru SA2000 Services appliance supports twice the database capacity while fitting into a 50% smaller footprint.

“We have a very large campus with multiple virtual wireless cells, handling hundreds of Wi-Fi devices at any given time,” said Eric Hawley, associate vice president of IT, Utah State University. “We rely on the Meru E(z)RF Suite to streamline the management of this extensive network and optimize wireless performance. With our limited IT staff, we must minimize incidents and maximize service to the thousands of students who depend on the wireless network as part of their education. Meru is the only vendor whose service management applications provide the historical, current and predictive information we need. They have brought a new level of order to the management of our network.”
