Anderson University deploys campus-wide MEG wireless solution

Jan 25, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- Meru Networks, Inc., a provider of virtualized wireless LAN solutions, has announced that Anderson University has deployed a campus-wide Meru Education-Grade, or MEG, wireless solution.

The MEG deployment supports Anderson's Mobile Learning Initiative (MLI). Anderson issues iPads to all incoming full-time students as the foundation of MLI, an ambitious program designed to deliver hybrid learning through flipped classrooms. While some of the interaction occurs in a traditional class setting, a significant portion of it occurs anywhere and anytime students want to learn, said Meru Networks.


"The MEG wireless solution enables our transformation to 21st century learning with flipped and hybrid classrooms, computer-based instruction, and unified communications and collaboration," said Peter Harvin, chief information officer for Anderson University.

"We have 1,300 residential students and they expect Internet access to allow them to do the kinds of things they would ordinarily do at home - recreational video and voice streaming, social networking, and other activities you don't typically find in a business environment. With MEG supporting our MLI, they are able to do what they want, when and where they want to do it." The Anderson MEG deployment consists of a Meru MC4200 controller, Meru AP433 access points in high-density areas and Meru AP320 and AP320i access points deployed campus-wide. Meru E(z)RF Network Manager provides network-wide monitoring, visibility and control of the entire deployment, added Meru Networks.
