Meru Networks last week announced products based on the IEEE 802.1n draft specifications, in a race to become the first wireless vendor to support this important new standard.

The new products build on Meru's existing Air Traffic Control technology to enable 802.11n capabilities. Meru's 802.11n product suite includes the AP300 family of dual-radio 802.11 a/b/g/n access points; the MC500 chassis controller for managing up to 1,000 access points each; and the 3-Tier Traffic Distribution System, to improve management for the increased network load driven by 802.11n.

Meru said its 802.11n architecture delivers key advances, including the ability to deliver a sustained wireless capacity throught a WLAN deployment, as well as capabilities to let IT more easily compensate for coverage holes and fluctuating data rates while maintaining high network performance. Performance is optimized by assigning the best physical access point to each network client and operating on a single-channel span, which results in simplified coverage and channel planning, the vendor said.Meru will demonstrate the 802.11n gear at the upcoming Interop show.
