Meru Networks appoints Blue Connections as new ANZ channel partner

15 Jan 2015

Intelligent Wi-Fi solutions provider Meru Networks has today announced Blue Connections as its latest channel partner in New Zealand and Australia. 

Established in 1989 and based in Melbourne, Blue Connections is a provider of best-in-class IT solutions to enterprises, local and state government departments and the education sector. 

“We are very excited about our partnership with Meru Networks,” says Wayne Morris, general manager for Blue Connections. “The partnership will help Blue Connections ensure it is exceeding the expectations of its New Zealand clients.”

 “Meru Networks has a distinct and technological advantage in the wireless space that helps us ensure that we are exceeding expectations.” 

One of Blue Connections first Meru deployments was the replacement of an ageing Motorola wireless LAN in Meyer Cookware Australia’s national distribution centre in Melbourne.

 “We were experiencing problems with co-channel interference and roaming issues between access points,” says David Casey, warehouse manager for Meyer Cookware. “Our Meru Wireless Network has saved our warehouse staff an average of 1.5 hrs per day in lost productivity due to drop outs.” 

“It is exciting to see how enthusiastically Blue Connections has embraced Meru’s intelligent 802.11ac Wi-Fi solutions,” says Gary Abad, vice president, APAC, for Meru. “Their long history in serving enterprise, education and other key verticals provides Meru with a strong partner to deliver our industry-leading 802.11ac Wi-Fi solutions to a wider range of customers.”
