Meru Education BYOD

Meru Education BYODWith Bring Your Own Device programs in mind Meru Networks has released a new wireless platform intended to help educational environments handle this emerging trend. The new Meru Education Grade (MEG) platform is “comprised of Meru’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) provisioning and guest management software, and Meru’s unique virtualized wireless LAN solutions, has been designed to help campus IT departments support academic goals to deliver learning-essential applications that work over a robust Wi-Fi network, despite the crush of BYOD.”

Meru points out that mobile devices will grow from under 1 billion in 2012 to over 3 billion units in 2015 with many of those devices located on university campuses. There is no doubt that these devices and the access to information that they offer open up a lot of new learning possibilities, but at the same time they put a huge burden on Higher Ed. IT Departments who are already under pressure. Aside from students and staff expecting to have 24×7 network access they are now expected to on-board a large variety of mobile devices seamlessly and securely with the rise of BYOD. Meru’s VP & general manager of the education business unit Sarosh Vesuna says, “The Meru Education-Grade wireless platform is designed to mitigate the impact of BYOD while enabling ‘uninterrupted learning’ for the entire university population.”
