Meru Ap832 delivers data rates up to 1.3 Gbps and big bandwidth improvements compared with 802.11n.
Meru Networks has introduced its first wireless Access Point designed to improve access, service and security in high density environments.
Meru AP832 marks the latest in a series of new wireless gear to support 802.11 ac or 5G and should help organisations, particularly in healthcare and education, accommodate the growing number of mobile devices and media-rich applications.
The California-based company, which has operations in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific, said it expects the higher bandwidth and capacity to help high density environments access multi-media rich content applications.
Other features include two 80 MHz channels at 5 Ghz as well as a two-radio and three spatial stream design, which eliminates the need for users to upgrade their Ethernet switching infrastructure.
Chris Carey, a tech director at Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose, said: "We’re currently in the midst of launching a one-to-one iPad initiative for the 2013-2014 school year and are working closely with Meru to ensure that our WLAN solution exhibits the perfect blend of density, performance and control.
"Meru’s .11ac solutions will play a critical role in helping us advance our technology leadership position and support future education technology initiatives."
Meru, which provides mobile access and virtualised Wi-Fi solutions for customers including Fortune 500 businesses as well as the healthcare and hospitality sector, said the price list starts from $1,295 (£852).
