LAS VEGAS, Apr 26, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Meru Networks, Inc., (NASDAQ:MERU), the leader in virtualized and optimized 802.11n enterprise networking, today announced that Joe Epstein, senior director of technology of Meru Networks, will review and discuss key technical and operational considerations for 802.11n migration in a panel discussion at Interop Las Vegas 2010, April 24-29, 2010.
In this panel session, titled "The Big Upgrade: 802.11n in the Enterprise," Epstein will discuss critical technical considerations such as backward compatibility, range and coverage, and diversity of clients. Since unveiling the first 802.11n products in the marketplace, Meru has consulted with enterprises across multiple verticals that want to transform their network, but did not know how best to proceed. Epstein will provide first-hand insight into the operational benefits of 802.11n and how to perform the big upgrade with minimal disruption, cost or confusion. Further, end-user behavior is changing the way the enterprises do business, introducing a variety of smart devices that potentially compete with critical business-critical devices for airtime. Epstein will share his recommendations on how to manage these wireless devices to ensure zero disruption and contention.
Epstein, a Meru wireless innovator and industry thought leader, is responsible for articulating the technology vision of the company. Additionally, he chairs the Voice over Wi-Fi Technical Certification Task Group for the Wi-Fi Alliance, and has made significant contributions to IEEE 802.11 standards. Epstein authored the book, "Scalable VoIP Mobility: Integration and Deployment", which discusses 802.11n and how the standard directly impacts voice mobility. He has a BS in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley.
