With VoIP replacing circuit-switched telephony and wireless replacing wires, the technology is mature and growing. Running VoIP over a wireless network can improve productivity by making users easily reachable through a single number. It can cut costs by reducing consumption of cellular minutes as well as reducing land-line costs. And it can ensure coverage throughout a facility by including areas that traditional cell phone signals cannot penetrate.
Meru is a leader in wireless VoIP technology, with customers utilizing the technology in their facilities since 2003. Wireless LAN Virtualization makes 802.11 telephony accessible to all.
