MERU Networks Inc. Computer Software | Sunnyvale, California

Meru began with a vision that sooner or later most enterprises would operate in an all-wireless environment: the network edge would need no wires, and a wireless LAN would fully support the enterprise. We wanted users to be able to count on the wireless network to access the content and applications they needed to get their jobs done, and we wanted IT managers to have the power to prepare their networks for the next generation of mobile applications. To bring that vision to life, we created a unique architecture that frees networks from the limitations of client control. With mobility in mind, we custom-built a network that could deliver the seamless coverage and simple scalability that are only possible with a single-channel design, a network that could virtualize RF resources to ensure smooth, predictable performance. Today the Meru Virtualized Wireless LAN is serving thousands of customers around the world
