its to bad you are anonymous. with the ability to use the tor network its hard to track people like you otherwise you would probably be arrested in my opinion for false statements. But remember you may not be as anonymous as it seems. There is quite a bit of malware found on tor lately. perhaps you may have let yourself be known.
also another advantage is MERUs ability to support a clients APs and controller once they purchase it.
In regards to scaling tyson from what I understand MERU is able to use Channel Layering to handle density where Ubiquiti cannot.
I agree with you 1000 percent. I however think that although I could be wrong MERU is rising based on increasing penetration significantly higher than was anticipated due to the mobile growth you are talking about and its 802.11ac product. Therefore I believe although I'm not a great timer, that MERU at this level is extremely attractive so Im willing to take the risk for the potential upside which if it does anything like UBNT did we all win big:) Do your due diligence of course as there is no rush thats why i dip a little just in case this does rise big in the short term i dont want to miss it
and the list goes on and on
also im not saying this will happen but could as many people believe MERU to be a potential acquisition target although i did not base my initial investment on that but rather its technology and current management team
here is a good explanation from alphacove
Since late 2013 the industry has entered the early innings its latest major upgrade cycle as it has begun to introduce products on the new Wi-Fi standard, 802.11ac. Compared to the currently predominant 802.11n standard, 802.11ac offers up to fourfold higher speeds by offering wider channels (80 or 160 MHz vs. 40 MHz). However, this impairs the traditional networking architecture of having multiple (three) channels to reduce interference as the number of available channels drops to two (80 MHz) or one respectively (160 MHz). Meru’s virtualized network architecture is different in that it always operates in one channel and virtually divides the channel into designated layers (ie. for different classes of users, such as students, lecturers and guests or medical staff, medical equipment and guests). Meru’s unique virtualized architecture provides it with a competitive advantage in the new networking environment: it can offer the highest speeds while preserving flexibility in managing the network.
Meru’s unique virtualized architecture is especially valuable in high density environments such as lecture halls, convention centers and stadiums. It also offers greater reliability as it is modeled after the cell phone network: the network is in control of the connection to the device as opposed to the device selecting which access point to connect to. If a mobile device moves within the network, it no longer has to reconnect to different access points (and may lose the connection in between). Instead, the network assigns access points, bandwidth and access rights. This is especially important in high density environments to ensure reliable allocation of bandwidth to key devices (ie. the lecturer or presenter or life-critical medical equipment such as patient monitoring).
Meru’s AP832 became generally available in November of 2013 and should meaningfully drive growth in 2014.
this is unreal if you ask me
your welcome Tyson. For me both MERU and UBNT are lower in costs than lets say a CSCO but there 802.11ac's are superior. The growth of mobile is really were the massive upside potential is for both these companies imo. Time will tell but as you can see from the recent press MERU is beginning to penetrate additional market shares at a nice clip so we shall see:) Anyway I like my chances here and I think this could one day make a move like UBNT made last year but we shall see:)
i would appreciate any thoughts thanks
yeah. you have been saying sell UBNT for awhile and it continues to rise. You have also been incorrect on MERU which is now $4.94 genius. The takeaway. Dont listen to a guy with a name poontang
I cant get enough it seems:)
Meru Networks AP832 models
consists of the AP832i (internal antennas) and AP832e (external antennas)
Broadcom based Wi-Fi, two 11ac radios (max. 1300Mbps link rate for 11ac, 450Mbps seems to be the max. link rate specified for 11b/g/n in Meru's datasheet)
Ubiquiti UniFI AP AC
1300 Mbps Dual Band Wireless AC Access Point
Broadcom based, BCM4706 (SoC) + BCM4360 (11ac, 3x3:3, max. 1300Mbps link rate) + BCM4331 (11b/g/n, 3:3:3, max. 450Mbps link rate)
an additional model for outdoor use (UAP-AC Outdoor) is specified in the FCC docs
see more on wikidevi
Competitors' wireless architectures largely restrict support for 40 MHz channels due to limited channel availability, reducing data rates to approximately half of the 1.3 Gbps-per-radio that the specification allows.
The Meru 802.11ac solution stands alone in its ability to enable the use of three spatial streams over two 802.11ac radios on standard 802.3af power. This eliminates the need for customers to upgrade their entire Ethernet switching infrastructure, as currently required by many Meru competitors when deploying their 802.11ac solutions
