Meru Networks, a Fortinet Company, to Showcase Residence Hall Solutions at Campus Technology 2015 Conference

Jul 23, 2015

Meru 802.11ac AP122 Selected by University Campuses Worldwide to Bring Gigabit Wi-Fi Access; University of Toronto to Share Its Campus Networking Experience at Event SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - July 23, 2015) - Meru Networks®, a Fortinet® ( NASDAQ : FTNT ) company and a leader in intelligent Wi-Fi networking, today announced that the Meru Education-Grade (MEG™) wireless platform will be showcased at the Campus Technology 2015 conference at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston from July 27 - 30. The MEG platform helps campuses avoid interrupted learning -- halted due to inadequate wireless connectivity -- providing ubiquitous learning environments by meeting and exceeding Wi-Fi expectations throughout the campus and especially residence halls. Meru's AP122, a 802.11ac Wi-Fi access point, has been selected to deliver gigabit Wi-Fi in university residence halls worldwide, as they seek to create an all-wireless campus with uninterrupted learning. During the Campus Technology event, Douglas Carson, senior manager of Enterprise Networking for Meru customer University of Toronto, will discuss the strategies, perspectives and knowledge gained from large enterprise network deployments to provide students, faculty and others on campus with the connectivity users demand. Universities Globally Benefit from a New Approach to Campus Connectivity "According to the NMC Horizon Report 2014 Higher Education Edition , the average 18 - 34 year-old college student owns seven tech devices, and will bring any combination of these devices onto their university campus each day," said Rich Nedwich, senior director of Education Business at Meru Networks. "The significant number of devices coming onto the network can cause strain. It is up to the small IT teams who support major universities to ensure their networks are capable of handing the influx of connected devices. These unsung IT heroes of education are charged with uninterrupted 24x7 Wi-Fi access that has become expected in 21st century learning environments. " With gigabit-data rates, the Meru AP122 is perfectly suited for in-room deployment needs of the higher-education residence-hall market. Designed to provide maximum coverage and capacity in multi-tenant environments, its inconspicuous wall-mounted design eases in-room cabling and placement and maximizes deployment flexibility. Meru Networks has deployed the AP 122 wall plate in universities and colleges globally, recently on the following campuses: Texas A&M University-Commerce in Commerce, Texas The college or university campus of today looks very different from the campus of even 10 years ago. Smart phones, tablets, wired classrooms and teaching devices, wearable devices, laptops, apps, social media, and blended learning environments have converged to change the way that teachers teach, students learn and campus IT departments operate. "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) is now the norm, not the exception, 802.11ac Wi-Fi-enabled devices lead the way and everyone expects to connect here and now. In response to the networking issues inherent in this new world order of networking for education, university IT departments worldwide have turned to Meru to overcome their wireless challenges. Meru's AP122 is the industry's first 802.11ac wall plate access point specifically designed to meet the ever-increasing mobile data needs of resident college and university students.
