High-speed 802.11n wireless is a mature technology with the fastest adoption rate the industry has ever seen. Every day, more consumers, enterprises and service providers recognize the benefits of the technology and come to share Meru's vision of the All-Wireless Enterprise. When combined with Virtualized Wireless LANs, it enables users to break free from their dependence on wires altogether.
Though the 802.11n standard was ratified in 2009, Meru has been shipping 802.11n products since 2007. Meru customers, which include corporations and universities large and small, have been relying on the standard for mission and business critical applications. Client adoption is even wider, with most new laptops ship with an 802.11n radio. By installing access points that support 802.11n, organizations can boost the wireless bandwidth by a factor of five or more over 802.11g and take advantage of the increased wireless coverage that results from this standard.
Increased speed isn't the only reason to deploy an 802.11n wireless network. There are also powerful cost advantages stemming from its ability to replace both legacy wired and legacy wireless networks. With Meru's next-generation architecture, 802.11n offers all the performance, reliability and scalability that users expect from Ethernet. It also supports all applications and devices designed for legacy 802.11 a/b/g standards.
Whether upgrading from wires or legacy wireless, the transition to 802.11n is easy with Meru. Meru's next-generation Virtual Cell architecture eliminates the cumbersome channel planning associated with wireless networks. And its Virtual Port gives the network tight control over the bandwidth allocated to each client, ensuring optimum performance for both 802.11n and legacy clients.
