Spectralink refreshes DECT handset portfolio of WorkSmart products

Wavelink LogoSeptember 8, 2015 — Spectralink Corporation (“Spectralink”), a global leader in wireless solutions for the workplace, has has announced a refresh of its 7000 Portfolio of DECT handsets, along with the addition of new models to the series to even better meet end user needs.

In today’s connected world, organisations are increasingly looking for devices that offer flexible mobility alongside the secure reliability required for the workplace. Designed with reliability and durability in mind, the Spectralink 7000 Portfolio handsets are built to address these challenges. They cater especially to usage within demanding workplace environments like those of the retail, manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

Spectralink will be rolling out upgrades to its 7000 Portfolio of handsets over the course of the remainder of the year, with updates to the functionality, design and usability of the devices.

“The latest refresh of Spectralink’s DECT portfolio demonstrates our continued dedication to solving the growing demand for workplace mobility and communications,” said Dan Mondor, CEO, Spectralink Corporation. “By adding new functionality to the DECT handsets, staff can be more efficient while also ensuring they operate safely in the most demanding workplace environments.”

The first of these updates is the 7522 DECT handset, which maintains the form factor’s elegant yet robust existing feature set, including a large colour display and intuitive menu structure, while also providing support for Software Updates over the Air (SUOTA). This means that device software can be updated quickly and easily from a central location over the air, rather than having each handset manually updated. The Spectralink 7522 is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Going forward, Spectralink will be implementing further upgrades to the handset portfolio. The changes will bring newer industrial design, features and technology to the devices, while retaining the robust long-term dependability catering to harsh environments.

Built for users with a focus on usability, functionality, design and quality, the Spectralink 7000 Portfolio handsets consist of a wide range of reliable and durable models. They are specialised for use in environments from general office applications to intrinsically safe surroundings. Additionally, the handsets support integration with third-party applications to maximise their performance in manufacturing and healthcare environments. All Spectralink 7000 Portfolio handsets are interoperable allowing for deployments with a mix of handsets.

Fortinet closes acquisition of Meru Networks

Wavelink LogoFortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cyber security solutions, has announced it has closed the acquisition of Meru Networks (NASDAQ:MERU), a leader in intelligent Wi-Fi networking. With the close of this acquisition, Fortinet expands on its secure wireless vision and enterprise growth focus, broadens the company’s solutions portfolio, and expands its opportunity to uniquely address the $5B global enterprise Wi-Fi market with integrated and intelligent secure wireless solutions.

Fortinet’s proven solutions in secure Wi-Fi markets, with its FortiAP secure wireless access points and FortiWiFi integrated security appliances for enterprise branch offices and small businesses have been among the fastest growing products in the company’s “advanced technologies” portfolio. The addition of Meru’s intelligent Wi-Fi solutions to the Fortinet portfolio extends the delivery of a secure, uninterrupted user experience – anytime anywhere – providing peak performance in environments requiring high capacity load and a high-density of wireless users, such as enterprise, education, healthcare, and hospitality.

“To truly protect against all possible attack vectors, we are continuing to expand our market-leading end-to-end security platform to provide customers with the visibility and continuous threat protection they need – from the data centre, to the cloud to the end-point,” said Ken Xie, founder, chairman and CEO of Fortinet. “We expect the acquisition of Meru to help us deliver new solutions and services to help enterprises of all sizes deploy, manage, and secure wired and wireless networks in a mobile era.”

Fortinet and Meru customers will benefit from Fortinet’s commitment to providing secure, uninterrupted connectivity for their highly mobile end-users, while offering channel partners a broader solutions portfolio to take to market.

With the completion of the transaction, Meru employees officially join Fortinet.

In connection with the acquisition, Fortinet is paying $1.63 per Meru share in cash, an equity value of approximately $44 million for the transaction. Fortinet first completed the tender offer for all outstanding shares of Meru by accepting for payment all such shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn as of the expiration time of the tender offer, which represented approximately 60.18% of Meru’s outstanding shares. Subsequently, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortinet merged with and into Meru, resulting in Meru becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Fortinet. As a result of the merger, all remaining shares of Meru not purchased by Fortinet in the tender offer (other than shares owned by Meru, Fortinet or their subsidiaries and shares subject to properly exercised appraisal rights claims) were converted into the right to receive the aforementioned cash payment. All shares of Meru are expected to be delisted from the NASDAQ stock market.

Meru XPress Cloud: A powerful, intuitive, affordable Wi-Fi Solution for small-to-medium enterprises

Wavelink LogoFebruary 11, 2015 – Meru Networks® (NASDAQ: MERU), a leader in intelligent Wi-Fi networking, has announced the availability of Meru XPress Cloud, a controller-less 802.11ac Wi-Fi solution featuring cloud-based management that is purpose-built for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and distributed enterprises. The XPress Cloud portfolio includes the new Meru XP8i access point, with management software hosted by Meru and delivered through industry-leading, highly-secure data centre providers worldwide. With Meru XPress Cloud, only network management traffic traverses the cloud; all corporate data remains behind the firewall.

“The Meru XPress Cloud Wi-Fi network was incredibly easy to set up compared to the Aruba system we replaced,” said Jeremy Carr, CIO of InQuest Technologies, Inc. “Our wireless LAN has been running great since we made the switch. Access to the XPress Cloud management platform has made it easier than ever to monitor the wireless devices on our network and the performance of each access point.”

Tailor-made for SMEs

SMEs globally account for approximately 95 per cent of private sector firms and employ over two-thirds of workers1, many of whom bring or are issued multiple mobile devices for use in the office. Supporting the increasingly high density of mobile devices in the workplace is a critical business function, not achievable by the consumer-grade Wi-Fi solutions in use by many smaller organisations today.

“Smaller businesses require the same high levels of performance and security that enterprises do, though IT support levels are typically much lower,” said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research. “Meru XPress Cloud is designed to give SMEs enterprise-grade capabilities, with ease-of-use and intuitive management specifically designed to meet their needs.”

Ease of deployment

XPress Cloud is designed to be easily deployed by general office staff with little or no IT experience. Only a PoE-capable Ethernet switch or an optional external power supply, along with a basic Internet connection, are required to have an enterprise-grade wireless network up and running in minutes. The high-performance, two-radio, 2X2, 802.11ac Meru XP8i offers zero-touch provisioning, with automated channel and power selection capabilities enabling instant self-configuration. Meru XPress Cloud also features an integrated captive portal for secure on-boarding of employee and guest devices.

Channel-enabled acquisition and deployment options

XPress Cloud is available through authorised Meru channel partners and features management portal customisation, enabling partner-branded offerings. Meru gives customers two options for the acquisition of XPress Cloud, with XP8i access points available for purchase upfront, or available on a Wi-Fi-as-a-Service (WaaS), subscription basis. Monthly management and monitoring license fees apply.

“We’ve worked closely with small-to-medium enterprises around the world to understand what they need to meet their unique business demands,” said Don Trimble, vice president of SME Cloud Sales at Meru. “These findings, combined with our experience in the design of enterprise-grade WLAN solutions, led to Meru XPress Cloud — a high-performance offering that brings affordability, ease of deployment and scalability to the SME and distributed enterprise markets.”

Availability
XPress Cloud is available now.

Lightspeed Systems is focused on the education market, specifically K-12. Its product suite includes web filtering, mobile device management, a learning management system (LMS) and classroom management to make sure that schools are able to safely and easily use transformative technologies.

Lightspeed Systems is currently the only vendor that offers all of these products, letting schools mix and match to meet their specific needs. The fact that Lightspeed Systems products are also the only products in the industry that can integrate together offer additional benefits for schools.

Ilan Rubin, managing director, Wavelink, said, “The offerings of Lightspeed Systems complement Wavelink’s existing solutions. The agreement means that Wavelink can now offer an even wider range of options to the education sector.

Ilan Rubin said, “Wavelink will work closely with the Lightspeed Systems team in Australia.

Digium introduces the Switchvox Softphone for iPhone

Wavelink LogoDecember 4, 2014 – Digium®, Inc. has announced the release of its Switchvox Softphone for iPhone app. This new app offers the power of a Digium IP Phone on an iPhone, to enable enterprise mobility for Digium’s Switchvox business phone system users. Like Digium’s desktop phone, the Switchvox Softphone for iPhone is simple to setup, and presents users with a rich feature-set to receive and make calls, check voicemail, set a personal status, and see a coworker’s status.

“The Switchvox Softphone for iPhone lets you take your business phone wherever you go, so that you have the tools you need to serve your customers effectively and collaborate with coworkers,” said Adam Kramer, product manager for the Switchvox product line. “Switchvox and the desktop Digium IP Phones set a high bar for quality and user experience, and the app raises that bar; it’s intuitive for users and effortless for administrators to manage.”

The app delivers the same powerful communications experience that traditional desktop phone users have with Switchvox. That robust feature set is now extended to employees who take advantage of their company’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, as well as remote workers, telecommuters, and any of a company’s mobile workforce.

With the app, you can make and receive calls, record, transfer, and 3-way conference. Your favourite contacts are automatically displayed with their status details, and all of your Switchvox contacts are available for direct calls and transfers to voicemail. You can also access your iPhone contacts to dial any number via Switchvox. A call log displays your recent calls for easy reference and re-dialing, and audio options let you use the speaker or a headset.

The app also includes voicemail (play, delete, and call-back), and easy access to your status setting. The status you set in the app is available for your Switchvox coworkers to see, and can control what happens to your incoming calls and what greeting is played when callers reach your voicemail.
The Switchvox Softphone for iPhone supports iOS 8 and is available for free in the Apple Store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/switchvox-softphone/id905124827?ls=1&mt=8.  It’s easily assigned to a Switchvox phone extension and requires a Switchvox subscription.

Spectralink grows with demand for enterprise-grade Voice over Wi-Fi devices

Wavelink LogoOctober 3, 2014 — Spectralink Corporation (“Spectralink”), a global leader in wireless solutions for the workplace, has seen an increase in market share within the company’s Wi-Fi sales of 10 percentage points over the last three quarters, according to a new report by market research firm, Infonetics.

This success follows the launch of PIVOT™ by Spectralink earlier this year. PIVOT is the first purpose-built mobile handset to combine the usability of consumer smartphone-like features with the quality, durability and reliability essential for in-building mobile employees to improve workplace communication.

Since launching PIVOT in February this year, Spectralink is working with partners on more than 80 deployments across the world. As the specialist in mobile communications solutions for the workplace, Spectralink has established itself as a leading provider of mobile devices for the healthcare, retail and manufacturing sectors. It now counts 33 partners, and growing, in its exclusive AIMS (Application Integration and Management Solvers) partner network, and continues to dominate the sector with its innovative and industry-leading WorkSmart solutions.

PIVOT’s success since its launch is further evidence that the BYOD trend is not appropriate in many industries. Consumer devices, unlike purpose-built devices, cannot meet the various needs of security, durability, reliability and total cost of ownership in specific sectors.

“We have spent the past seven months building on the success of PIVOT and improving its features following customer feedback, and are now on version 3.0 of our principal product,” said Sten Dyrmose, CEO of Spectralink. “The feedback we’ve received, along with our vigorous testing in real-life situations, has resulted in a more mature product. PIVOT provides a stable platform to support the fundamental requirements of mobile employees in environments such as healthcare, retail and manufacturing.”

Dyrmose added, “Our focus is solely on purpose-built devices. We are specialists in this field and we are leaders because of this. We work with our ecosystem of partners to ensure that our devices combine the best-in-breed solutions from across the market for true interoperability and unrivalled performance.”
