First iPhone WLAN management application
E(z)RF OnTheGo is the first wireless LAN management application available on a smartphone, has been introduced by Meru Networks for the Apple iPhone. Network administrators can work untethered from their desktop consoles, gaining the power to view customized dashboards, receive high-priority alerts, and do anywhere/anytime management from an iPhone over a Wi-Fi or cellular network.
E(z)RF OnTheGo brings the comprehensive WLAN data from E(z)RF Network Manager 2.0 (also being introduced today) to dashboards formatted specially for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Network administrators can access customized views of management data (e.g., network load, density, client counts, connection status) and receive notifications of high-priority events (e.g., user connectivity problems). They can then initiate immediate, context-aware network actions (e.g., notify the Network Operations Center to restart a RADIUS server) without having to return to their desks.
As a browser-based application, E(z)RF OnTheGo does not require users to download any software into their iPhones.
Available immediately as an add-on option to E(z)RF Network Manager 2.0, E(z)RF OnTheGo is priced at $499 per user license. During an initial promotion running through September 2009, it can be downloaded free by any Meru customer with a service contract for E(z)RF Network Manager 2.0.
