Retirement community picks Meru network

Meru Networks (NASDAQ: MERU) reported that Maple Knoll Communities, Inc. has deployed a Meru uninterrupted care network to support more than 1,000 residents at its continuing care retirement communities, including Maple Knoll Village, in the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area.

“Our care giving staff has so much more mobility now,” said Andrew Craig, IT director at Maple Knoll Village. “Staff can use their laptops or tablets at the patients´ bedsides, in the skilled nursing care facility, in residents´ homes or in the independent living and assisted living communities. They can also do follow-up visits with residents who were recently ill. With Meru Wi-Fi, our staff has access to medical information and resources they need to care for our residents and patients – wherever and whenever they need it.”

Meru´s uninterrupted care network enables IT departments to create separate Wi-Fi channel layers. This allows hospitals to offer the benefits of mobility for Wi-Fi enabled “Life Critical” devices such as telemetry and to help ensure reliable connectivity for those devices on their own dedicated wireless channel layers.

Meru Networks is a market leader in the development of mobile access and virtualized Wi-Fi solutions. Founded in 2002, Meru is headquartered in Sunnyvale, Calif., with operations in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and Japan. Its website is at
