Bracknell, UK – May 11, 2011 – Meru Networks Inc. (NASDAQ:MERU), the leader in virtualised 802.11n enterprise wireless networking, today announced it has partnered with UK based value-added distributor Zycko, as part of its ongoing strategy to address the mid-tier and enterprise wireless networking markets. Zycko will provide access to an extensive channel of value-added, solution-focused resellers across the UK.
Zycko is renowned for its focus on innovative, leading-edge technologies, such as storage virtualisation, WAN optimisation and HD videoconferencing. The distributor will bring its extensive sector knowledge to the relationship, enabling Meru to penetrate key growth markets like retail, general enterprise, hospitality and healthcare, where all-wireless network environments are becoming popular.
Meru provides a comprehensive range of virtualised WLAN products, including access points, controllers and software, to enterprises and mid-tier organisations demanding reliable, scalable and secure wireless LAN (WLAN) solutions.
Zycko will distribute Meru’s full WLAN product suite, including its high-performance AP300 Series and entry-level AP1000i access points, as well as its Service Assurance Suite, which provides IT managers with management, security predictive and proactive diagnostic tools to optimise the performance of their entire WLAN infrastructure.
As a recognised innovator in enterprise wireless networking, Meru is able to work closely with its channel partners to help prepare them for the virtualised wireless networking environment, including training them on all aspects of the technology.
David Galton-Fenzi, Group Sales and Marketing Director, Zycko:
“We believe the proliferation of mobile devices, like smartphones and tablets, will be a key business driver. These markets all have something in common – high density environments – where many devices are trying to connect to a wireless network at the same time, causing it to slow down and perform poorly. Working with virtualised WLAN specialist, Meru Networks, means we can confidently address these challenges and offer our reseller base Fourth Generation solutions.”
David Kelly, vice president of international sales, Meru Networks:
“This latest partnership with Zycko continues our aggressive plans to dominate enterprise WLAN sales in the UK. We believe that by aligning ourselves with a proactive and knowledgeable distributor like Zycko, enables us to further strengthen our market position and sell our technology through the channel.”
