Meru stresses that all corporate data remains behind the firewall - only network management traffic goes out to the cloud.
XPress Cloud includes a portal to onboard employee and guest devices.
Hardware installation is simple - if a Power over Ethernet port is available, all that's needed is a cable. If not, an optional power supply is also required.
"We've worked closely with small-to-medium enterprises around the world to understand what they need to meet their unique business demands," said Meru vice president of SME cloud sales Don Trimble.
"These findings, combined with our experience in the design of enterprise-grade WLAN solutions, led to Meru XPress Cloud - a high-performance offering that brings affordability, ease of deployment and scalability to the SME and distributed enterprise markets."
