Revolution Wi-Fi: Misguided Meru
How is Meru even relevant anymore?
There's always one isn't there.
Meru is highly relevant to the 2700 education customers in the UK and Ireland, growing at nearly 20 education customers per week, where we're solving the challenges education customers face with their wireless networks.
Your post is neither helpful, nor relevant to the UK & Ireland, nor reflects the unsolicited positivity from current customers we received whilst at the Edugeek conference yesterday.
I was meant to come over to your stand yesterday to compliment the Meru products. We went fully wireless with Meru about 12 months ago. Ok, a few teething problems as expected but pretty faultless since then. I always say you can tell a good product if you take it for granted and don't realise it's there. With Meru, it's just that. It just works. :)
Thank you for your considered and honest post.
Just found this relevant youtube video

A disservice to the now 3200 plus Education customers in the UK and growing even faster now 11ac is here.

I'll happily take you out for the day to see some of our customers, hopefully then you'll be more considered in your posts and what you spend your time producing
@mhowell what benefits are there with AC over N beyond the speed increase? Are you using beamforming at all?
Meru still hanging on I see. Likely a good eco-budget vendor for the UK folks but in North America they continue to fall short. No innovation I'm afraid and some lofty (and fundamentally incorrect) ideas around CCI and 802.11ac. Good luck with that. You know you're at the rope's end when you're competing with Xirrus.
If anyone is interested in seeing some of the flaws in Meru's architecture and how they struggle to explain the technology while glazing over things with marketing-speak, here's some further reading:

Beware the pitfalls of early adoption of 802.11ac - do not fall victim to the initial push from early-to-market vendors that aren't prepared to support you through all phases of 802.11ac and it's lifecycle. Do your research and be educated to prevent long-term pain.
Is there anything from your own personal experience @Destinova or are you going to keep posting the stuff written or produced by other people.
I'll restate from my earlier post: "Do your research and be educated to prevent long-term pain."
