Meru Networks, which provides 802.11n virtualized wireless LAN (WLAN) solutions for enterprise networking, has been awarded two new patents for its innovation addressing Layer 2 network congestion collapse in 802.11n WLANs. Users that introduce iPads, iPhones and other wireless devices in the enterprise expect an interactive experience while accessing their latency-sensitive voice, high-bandwidth video and data applications, regardless of the number of mobile devices on the Wi-Fi network.
