Wi-Fi provider Meru Networks has announced six new solution bundles for the education market. These bundles are designed to simplify budgeting, ordering and subsequent network upgrades for schools, colleges and universities.
Through these bundles, schools pay only for access points, and further receive at no additional cost access point licencing, three years of support, as well as their choice of MC1550, MC3200 or MC4200 WLAN controllers.
“These new bundles make it much easier for us to sell Meru into education accounts at all points on the spectrum,” said David Black, president and CEO of Insource, a Meru Platinum Partner.
“The simplicity of pricing and the ‘all-inclusive’ nature of the offer make it very easy for customers to scope and get approval for their networks, and for us to deploy them. The included support contract is also a very valuable asset to educators, who often have limited in-house IT resources.”
The MEG solution is designed to solve BYOD or 1:1 issues for colleges, universities and K-12 schools and support their uninterrupted learning applications. MEG starts with three simple steps:
- Onboard quickly with BYOD provisioning and secure wireless access mapped to IT policies.
- Connect all BYOD devices reliably anywhere on campus.
- Learn by deploying validated learning and teaching applications over the MEG wireless platform.
“Meru’s attention to customer needs doesn’t stop with the delivery of the highest performing intelligent Wi-Fi solutions,” said Sarosh Vesuna, vice president and general manager of the education business unit at Meru.
“These new solutions bundles further our commitment to make Meru the easiest Wi-Fi vendor do business with, and are designed to make the procurement and maintenance of high density and bandwidth intensive Wi-Fi networks as simple as possible.”
The MEG bundles are available immediately. Educational institutions should contact an authorised Meru reseller for additional information.
