Meru Networks Signs Securematics To Distribute Its Wireless LAN Products In U.S.

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meru Networks and Securematics have signed a distribution agreement under which Santa Clara, Calif.-based Securematics will market and distribute Meru's wireless networking infrastructure solutions to its base of service provider, system integrator and value-added reseller partners in the United States.

Gregg Kalman, Meru's vice president of U.S. channels, said the expansion of Meru's U.S. distributor network reflects growing acceptance of its virtual cell wireless architecture and increasing demand for wireless networking products based on the high-performance IEEE 802.11n standard and incorporating advanced security features.

"We are delighted to add Securematics to our family of U.S. distributors," Kalman said. "They have an impressive track record of helping VARs effectively sell technology solutions to a wide variety of customer organizations. The long-standing relationships Securematics has built with Juniper Networks and many other leading-edge vendors speak to an insistence on providing their reseller partners with only the most technically advanced solutions. With 802.11n, Meru's architecture offers a superior solution for customers who want to provide both voice and data over wireless IP, which will fit very well with Securematics' partners."

"Meru fits our strategic approach to partner with best-in-class emerging technology solutions," said Brian Vincik, general manager of Securematics. "Meru's commitment to wireless innovation and excellence is reflected in a wide variety of offerings, including the market's first enterprise-grade 802.11n wireless LAN products. Great performance and simplicity of deployment, along with low cost of ownership, makes the Meru product line a valuable addition to our portfolio. We are excited about this new relationship and look forward to assisting our channel partners in deploying Meru solutions."

Securematics will stock Meru's full line of IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n access points and controllers, and will provide resellers with pre- and post-sales support services including training and demand generation.
