Dryland Business Members' Club Sees Improved Occupancy and Profitability With
Meru Wi-Fi Network
Clients Benefit From Secure, Realizable, High-Performance Wireless
LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 10/22/13 -- Meru Networks(R) (NASDAQ:
MERU), a leader in Wi-Fi networking, today announced that Dryland
Business Members' Club, a stylish new office space in central London
that revolutionizes the serviced-offices model, has increased
occupancy and profitability with a wireless solution from Meru.
"At other offices and business member clubs, customers often bring
their own wireless access points and routers, which just causes
interference and sluggish performance," said Emma Hunt, co-founder of
Dryland. "To support our goal to be a five-star, stylish working
environment, we wanted a five-star Wi-Fi offering that was at the
heart of our workspace and differentiated us from others."
"When we were deciding on which system to go with, Meru's technology
stood out head and shoulders above the rest because of its
predictability, security and manageability," said Robin Taylor, IT
manager for Dryland. "Now our members can go anywhere in the
building, whether in the cafe, or a quiet corner in one of the
lounges, and get seamless performance."
Kensington-based Dryland, which has the look and feel of a five-star
hotel combined with the atmosphere of a private member's club,
selected Meru after deciding to put technology at the heart of its
business and make it a key selling point for customers. The
deployment has resulted in improved meeting room occupancy and
profitability, better use of the cafe due to the strong wireless and
quicker turnaround for new tenants setting up offices there. Meru's
technology is supporting up to 300 users, providing secure, reliable
and fast access anywhere within the club's spacious interior. The
network was designed and installed by Building Zones, a Meru Networks
"Dryland is using its Wi-Fi to attract new customers to its unique
style of serviced-office and deliver a five-star-grade wireless
network for its existing members and staff," said Srinath Sarang,
co-founder and general manager of the hospitality business unit for
Meru Networks. "Having a Wi-Fi network be as reliable as electricity
and making the network seamless for the members are key. This allows
the members to focus on their business while allowing Dryland to meet
their business needs as a high-end serviced-office provider."
