As the enterprise edge transitions to an all wireless network, software-defined networking (SDN) and OpenFlow are emerging as a way to bring new levels of agility to organizations beyond the data center where SDN first gained traction. SDN has been applied to solve the cross network configuration challenges in the data centers; now is the time for SDN to be taken to the wireless edge of the corporate network and address those challenges homogeneously across both wired and wireless segments.
Meru is leading the way being the first wireless vendor to receive a Certificate of Conformance through the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) OpenFlow™ Conformance Testing Program within our wireless LAN controllers to enable third-party control all the way down to the access point. This provides customers with confidence in our products they acquire to provide the best-of-breed, multi-vendor support.
- Meru Collaborator – An SDN application that integrates with Microsoft’s Lync unified communication to detect and manage QoS on a heterogeneous network, deliver prescriptive resolution options and prioritize traffic across multi-vendor wired and wireless networks.
- Personal Bonjour – An SDN application that minimizes Bonjour broadcast storms of Apple related devices across unified networks and can propagate advertised services down to the individual user level via policy management.
Through the demonstration we will show how Meru’s SDN applications ensure Microsoft Lync voice quality over a mixed-network is maximized and how use of Apple’s Bonjour services can be artfully managed within a complex and user dense campus network.
Register for this event to hear Ajay Malik, Meru Senior VP of Engineering, demonstrate how seamlessly the wired and wireless networks can be integrated for the benefit of critical application like Lync and Bonjour.
We’ll be streaming the Meru DemoFriday live on February 13th at 10:00am PST. Don’t miss out.
