Leading Global Technology Distributor Will Carry Meru's Entire Line of Wi-Fi Products, Service and Training for Sale to Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and Others in Mexico and Brazil

MEXICO CITY--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2013) - Meru Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: MERU), a leader in virtualized wireless LAN solutions, today announced that Westcon Group, a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data center and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, will expand its distribution of Meru virtualized Wi-Fi solutions, based on the Meru® MobileFLEX architecture, into Mexico and Brazil, effective immediately.

The two companies will now have distribution arrangements in more than 17 countries, including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Mexico and Brazil.

"Meru's MobileFLEX architecture and the solutions and services developed around it are second to none in the industry," said Eric Linner, general manager at Westcon Mexico. "We are glad to be working with Meru to expand their footprint in the region, and to be adding these outstanding solutions to our offerings to VARs and others in these countries." 

Meru's MobileFLEX architecture features new Context-aware Application Layers (CALs), Apple Bonjour support, enhanced multi-vendor policy enforcement, cloud and 802.11ac readiness. MobileFLEX gives IT departments a unified ability to overlay mission-critical applications onto existing wired or wireless networks while simultaneously lightening the BYOD load.

"The rate at which Wi-Fi is being adopted and used to improve end-user experiences in Meru's target markets -- education, healthcare and hospitality -- in Mexico and Brazil is impressive," said David Kelly, vice president of international sales for Meru. "The expansion of Meru's relationship with Westcon into these markets will go a long way toward helping the regions build out their Wi-Fi infrastructures with the best available Wi-Fi solutions, and toward helping Meru meet its own goals for growth."
