Meru Networks Achieves Premier Membership in Avaya Developer

07-11-2005

Meru Networks announced it has been named a Premier member of Avaya's Developer

Meru Networks, the global leader in wireless VoIP infrastructure, today announced it has been named a Premier member of Avaya's DeveloperConnection program and has successfully completed interoperability testing of its Meru Wireless LAN System with key Internet protocol (IP) telephony solutions from Avaya (NYSE:AV), a leading global provider of business communications applications, services and systems.

 

The Meru Wireless LAN System features Meru's unique Air Traffic Control technology that helps businesses enable true Voice-over-IP (VoIP) mobility. It is the only WLAN solution purpose-built to carry heavy voice and data traffic with reliability and optimum quality. Meru's WLAN system was recently honored at Interop 2005, where it was named Best of Show in the wireless category. The System now is compliance- tested by Avaya for compatibility with the following products: Avaya Communication Manager 2.2, Avaya S8500 Media Server, Avaya Voice Priority Processor, Avaya IP Office 403, Avaya 4600 Series IP telephones, Avaya 3616-3626 IP Wireless telephones, the Avaya IP Softphone, Avaya IP Softphone for Pocket PC and the Avaya Phone Manager Pro.

 

"Meru is pleased to have completed compliance testing and achieved this level of partnership with Avaya," said Ben Gibson, vice president, corporate marketing at Meru Networks. "In addition to the strong move toward VoIP deployments, we are also seeing a steady increase in customers asking about the productivity and cost benefits that can be achieved through VoIP mobility utilizing wireless LANs. We see a strong fit between Meru and Avaya for delivering true VoIP mobility solutions, and now customers can be confident that these solutions are completely interoperable."

 

The Avaya DeveloperConnection (DevConnect) Program is an initiative to serve customer needs by developing, marketing and selling innovative third-party products that interoperate with Avaya technology and extend the value of a company's investment in its network. Premier members of the program are eligible to submit products for compatibility testing by the Avaya Solution Interoperability and Test Lab in Lincroft, N.J. There a team of Avaya engineers develops a comprehensive test plan for each application or product to verify whether it is Avaya-compliant. Doing so ensures businesses can confidently add best-in-breed capabilities to their network without having to replace their existing infrastructure - speeding deployment of new applications and reducing both network complexity and implementation costs.

 

"By offering compliance testing to the many innovative companies who are members of our DeveloperConnection program, Avaya promotes interoperable solutions that are easier and more cost-effective for companies to implement within their existing multivendor networks," said Ken Klein, Avaya vice president, Solutions Test and Developer Support. "That means we're expanding the options businesses have for solving their most complex challenges and are helping them derive greater value from their communications infrastructure."
