Meru Launches 'WINS' Partner Program to for Virtual Wireless Infrastructure

Partner program demonstrates interoperability of wireless solutions and applications with Meru's virtual cell wireless LAN infra

Meru Networks has launched the Wireless Interoperability and Network Solutions (WINS) partner program, designed to assure customers of the demonstrated interoperability of their wireless solutions and applications with Meru's virtual cell wireless LAN infrastructure.

In Meru's virtualized WLAN architecture, a single radio channel is assigned to all access points, creating an enterprise-wide "virtual cell," so that wireless devices connected to the network never have to switch channels and risk dropped or interrupted service as the user moves around the network. The virtual cell provides the basis for a "virtual port" to be assigned to each client device, giving Ethernet port-like service and control to each connected device. This combination allows an optimization of RF resources which raises WLAN performance and reliability to wireline levels while reducing the cost of wireless to a fraction of its wired equivalent. In contrast, legacy WLAN systems use a "micro cell" approach, which assigns different radio channels to adjacent APs, requires precise and time-consuming channel planning and AP power adjustments and limits future expansion.

The WINS partner program's 32 charter members have had their mobile clients, medical telemetry, network security, unified communications, real-time location, network management and other products tested and verified either at Meru's WINS Interoperability Lab in Sunnyvale or at the partners' own labs. WINS program partners collaborate on interoperability testing, marketing collateral (e.g., testing documentation and solution notes), publicity, sales and support training, and customer and channel partner identification.

Current members of the Meru WINS program include:AeroScout, Agito Networks, AirMagnet, Amika Mobile, Ascom, Avaya, Avenda Systems, BlueWave Security, Bradford Networks, ConSentry Networks, Creative, DiVitas Networks, Draeger Medical, Ekahau, ForeScout Technologies, Impulse Point, Intelleflex, Intermec, MobileAccess, Motion Computing, Newbury Networks, PanTerra Networks, Polycom, ShoreTel, Socket Mobile, T-Mobile USA, TerraWave Solutions, Velociti, Vocera Communications, Wavelink, Welch Allyn and WildPackets.
