VON Gives Vendors A Voice For Product, Partner Rollouts
Spring VON 2006 opens this week in San Jose, Calif., and many vendors are using the event to highlight new products and partnerships.
Meru Networks will announce an alliance with Catalyst Telecom to distribute Meru’s WLAN solutions, which are optimized to carry voice and data.
One of Meru’s goals is to recruit key Catalyst VARs and train them to develop integrated bundled solutions that support voice and data applications simultaneously in the enterprise, according to Ihab Abu-Hakima, president and CEO of Meru, Sunnyvale, Calif.
“Teaming up with Catalyst is part of Meru’s push to run voice as a primary application over the WLAN, and the relationship will help us reach VARs who can handle VoWLAN [Voice-over-WLAN] deployments,” Abu-Hakima said.
Monte Seifers, technology director at Converged Solutions Group, a Nashville, Tenn.-based solution provider, said Meru gear is ideal for VoWLAN deployments because it enables quick handoff times between access points. “Meru provides an elegant solution that doesn’t require proprietary clients,” he said.
