Meru Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:MERU), a leader in virtualized wireless LAN
solutions, today announced that Genesis Hospitality Group has deployed Meru
Networks’ access solutions to connect guests and business event attendees at
its six properties in central Canada to the Internet.

The Best Western Inn on the Bay is one of the Genesis Group’s premier
properties, an upscale corporate hotel in a resort setting overlooking
Georgian Bay in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. It’s a frequent destination for
both vacationers and small conferences with business travelers, who compose 40
percent of its annual revenues.

“Meru was best positioned to meet all of our guests needs, which vary widely,”
said Jason Hemstock, general manager. “Because all the APs use the same
channel, interference from channel overlap has never been an issue. When
guests walk around with laptops or, more commonly today, tablets, they never
lose connectivity or break their mobility.”

When the hotel, which has no IT staff and hired none for installation or
management of the network, began seeking a solution that would meet the needs
of both families and its highly selective executive patrons, along with the
multitudes of wireless devices they all bring along, they had a lot to
consider. Reliability, security and performance were obviously critical, but
so were ease of installation and management. Focusing on these aspects of the
technology, they considered several vendors’ solutions before selecting Meru.

After the successful deployment at The Best Western Inn on the Bay, the
Genesis Group selected Meru for its other five properties, the Victoria Inns
at Brandon, MB; Flin Flon, MB; Thunder Bay, ON; Winnipeg, MB and The Royal Oak
Inn at Brandon, MB.

“Hospitality leaders like the Genesis group stake their reputations on the
flawless delivery of services such as wireless connectivity,” said Srinath
Sarang, co-founder and general manager of hospitality and entertainment
solutions at Meru. “Especially with such a high percentage of their revenue
coming from business travelers, they simply cannot afford to risk failure in
this area. We are very pleased that they selected Meru, and look forward to
working to meet their and their customers needs well into the future.”
