Meru Networks high-performance, scalable wireless LAN Solution | TCS Canada

  1. 1. Meru Networks high-performance, scalable wireless LAN Solution Today the Meru Virtualized Wireless LAN is serving thousands of customers around the world including the Education, Hospitality, Healthcare, and Retail industries. Welcome to the new enterprise Meru wireless LANs are specifically designed for environments where high-density wireless traffic depends on business-critical applications. These conditions first emerged in places where the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend is in full force and weak networks are unacceptable: hospitals and airports, universities and schools, hotels and other enterprises. Today, the BYOD phenomenon is pervasive. In all kinds of enterprises, IT managers are finding that wireless demands are beginning to exceed the capabilities of their current networks—legacy systems meant for casual use and low-volume traffic. With the rapid consumerization of IT, they’re facing more and more mobile devices that have to be provisioned and managed easily and securely. They’re confronting high-bandwidth applications demanding more and more resources. They’re struggling with the need to scale up an old network to accommodate the rising tide of wireless traffic and to accommodate users in many locations, from headquarters buildings to home offices. They are experiencing the emergence of the distributed mobile enterprise, and the stress of an infrastructure that is unprepared. And they’re turning to Meru for solutions. A high-performance, scalable wireless LAN solution Ninety percent of Meru networks replace legacy microcell networks. Why? With a Meru Virtualized WLAN, IT professionals can easily:  Expand the Wi-Fi network to support more users bringing more devices. A Meru Virtualized WLAN scales up easily—without time-consuming and costly site plans.  Manage the Wi-Fi network with small staffs and tight budgets. A Meru Virtualized WLAN is simple to deploy and manage, with low total cost of ownership.
  2. 2.  Ensure consistent, high-quality mobile services. Meru creates a reliable, seamless network with no soft spots. Real-time RF resource optimization allocates bandwidth fairly and predictably. At the same time, Meru lets IT managers leverage their existing investments in virtualization, cloud computing, and mobility—the technologies that allow today’s enterprise to become fully distributed. Meru provides a high-performance wireless infrastructure that is easy to deploy, manage, and expand. Future-proofing the network The Meru infrastructure is built from the ground up to support high-density use, mobile users, and business-critical voice, video, and data applications. It’s an all-wireless network that delivers a consistent, interactive experience for all users—no matter what applications they are running, no matter how many other users are on the network. Most of all, it’s a flexible, easily scalable platform that keeps IT departments ahead of the curve as their users become more dispersed and mobile, and their network demands grow. It’s an infrastructure designed, from the beginning, to future-proof the enterprise network. Industries Higher Education For schools that need to provide pervasive Wi-Fi connectivity to support the flood of Wi-Fi devices from BYOD, Meru provides the WLAN equipment and management software you need for classroom and campus coverage, secure guest access, and multimedia support for video and audio learning applications.

With Meru and LanSchool, schools can
  3. 3. easily support 1-to-1 and BYOD initiatives; IT can manage the wireless network, teachers can manage the class and students can manage their assignments. Meru and LanSchool are working together to support iPads, laptops, smartphones and other mobile devices in schools, for uninterrupted learning over the Wi-Fi network. By partnering, Meru and LanSchool reduce several common barriers to the successful implementation of the digital classroom:  IT is able to simplify mobile device connectivity and Wi-Fi network operations using Meru’s unique virtualized wireless network architecture.  Teachers are able to detect and deter common distractions such as Web surfing, games and instant messaging during class time, with real-time monitoring capabilities from LanSchool.  Students are able to collaborate with their peers and connect directly with their teachers with screen-sharing, chat and mobility solutions from both vendors. HEALTHCARE Drivers for Wi-Fi adoption in hospitals In the last decade, hospitals have made significant investments in wireless technologies to improve:  Patient Safety by deploying connected medical devices such as smart IV pumps, smart beds, and telemetry that alert clinicians to intervene in a timely fashion.  Clinicians’ Productivity by providing care coordination systems such as Wi-Fi phones integrated with nurse call systems, EHR access from computers on wheels, etc.  Patient Satisfaction by providing Internet access to patients and visitors so that they can connect with friends and family and receive support from them. But the promise of these improvements remains unfulfilled without a suitable Wi-Fi infrastructure. Microcell Wi-Fi is the problem Hospital Wi-Fi ecosystems comprise life-critical, mission-critical, and consumer-critical applications with each having different requirements from wireless. Wi-Fi is a shared medium and in a conventional microcell-based network the applications compete for the same resources and interfere with each other. Microcell-based Wi-Fi networks have other significant limitations, especially in highly mobile environments that make it challenging to deliver high reliability in hospital environments. Hospitals compensate for such limitations with workarounds, such as relying on wired connectivity for Life Critical devices or overhead paging despite deploying Wi-Fi phones, or asking nurses to stop walking when they get a voice call. Such workarounds create patient safety risks, slow down clinicians, and ultimately make patients unhappy. The Meru Uninterrupted Care Network is the solution
  4. 4. With the specific needs of hospitals in mind, Meru developed the Uninterrupted Care Network (UCN). UCN enables hospitals to create separate, dedicated channels for life-critical, mission- critical, and consumer-critical applications, utilizing unique RF Channel Layering technology. UCN empowers hospitals to:  Improve patient safety and quality of care by isolating life-critical applications from all other wireless traffic  Increase clinician efficiency by providing reliable, pervasive Wi-Fi coverage for mission-critical applications and by enabling physicians to use the mobility platform of their choice (BYOD) in the hospital, clinic, or home  Improve patient satisfaction by allowing patients to stay connected with family and friends and to stream music and videos HOSPITALITY Yesterday’s hospitality Wi-Fi networks don’t cut it Just a few years ago, the Wi-Fi needs of hospitality were pretty simple: support guests sitting in their rooms, using laptops for email and web surfing, and that was it. Now, it’s a whole new ballgame: guests are streaming video, moving about the property with smartphones and tablets, having video chats, accessing secure applications and services. What’s more, staff need to access mission-critical data and applications. As a result, hospitality Wi-Fi needs to be more robust, more consistent, and higher performance. Meru’s next-generation Wi-Fi provides the uninterrupted service that keeps guests coming back Wi-Fi is the most requested guest amenity in today’s hospitality world.
