May 29, 2013 – Meru Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:MERU), a leader in virtualised 802.11n Wi-Fi networks, has announced that the Royal Freemasons’ Benevolent Institution (RFBI)is in the process of deploying Meru WLAN infrastructure to its 22 aged care villages located throughout New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. The solution is based on the Meru MobileFLEX architecture.
“The MobileFLEX architecture, with Meru’s new Context-aware Application Layers (CALs) is one of the key reasons we chose Meru,” said Andrew Alpe, chief information officer for the RFBI. “I view the Meru network as the underpinning of everything else that we are going to deploy as an organisation. If you don’t have a solid network, you can’t deploy anything else. If it’s not reliable, you can’t run your services.”
Ben Giblett, of Schepisi Communications, who is managing the project for RFBI, completed deployment to ten facilities by May 2013. He expects to complete the rollout to all 22 RFBI residential facilities, which employ 1,200 staff and are home to 2,000 elderly residents, by the end of 2013. An estimated 1,000 access points will have been installed when the project is completed. The full deployment will be centrally managed by a four-member IT team using Meru’s E(z)RF® Network Manager solution. Read more ❯
