Digium phones are the only IP handsets specifically engineered to fully leverage the power of Asterisk, the world’s most widely-adopted open source communications software, and Switchvox, Digium’s award-winning unified communications (UC) system. The new models feature a large, colour display with modern design and a sleek footprint that appeals to businesses of all sizes and users who desire state-of-the-art technology. The newly released Digium phones include the following models: • D65 - An executive-level, feature-rich HD phone with a 4.3 inch colour display, wireless headset support, 6-line keys with 20 scrolling pages of Rapid Dial/Busy Lamp Field (BLF) keys, and dual 10/100/1000 Mbps network ports. This model is ideal for executives and users who need a colour display, top-of-the-line features, and require Gigabit networking.  • D62 - A mid-level HD phone with a 4.3 inch colour display, 2-line keys, and dual 10/100/1000 Mbps network ports. This is Digium’s best value for users who need a colour display and require Gigabit networking. • D60 - An entry-level HD phone with a 4.3 inch colour display, 2-line keys, and dual 10/100 Mbps network ports. The D60 is Digium’s best value for any user who needs a colour display, but does not require Gigabit networking. “Digium phones are the only phones tightly integrated with Asterisk and Asterisk-based phone systems, including Digium’s Switchvox. No other phones on the market offer their advanced feature set,” said Malcolm Davenport, Digium senior product manager. “In addition to easy plug-and-play deployment, all models include the Digium Phone App Engine, which enables the phones to run user-developed JavaScript applications to enhance productivity. Apps like interactive voicemail, visual call parking, one-touch call recording, searchable contact directory, and presence management, all take advantage of the unique and rich data connection between Digium phones and Asterisk.” Launching alongside the next-generation Digium IP phones is a new release of Switchvox, version 6.3. New features include multicast audio and call parking enhancements. Multicast audio support enables phones to receive wide-area announcements and pages without consuming additional resources on a Switchvox system. A significant enhancement to call parking allows users to create multiple custom-defined parking lots and assign them to different users and groups. The new Digium phone models are now available.

With the close of this acquisition, Fortinet expands on its secure wireless vision and enterprise growth focus, broadens the company’s solutions portfolio, and expands its opportunity to uniquely address the $5B global enterprise Wi-Fi market with integrated and intelligent secure wireless solutions.  Fortinet’s proven solutions in secure Wi-Fi markets, with its FortiAP secure wireless access points and FortiWiFi integrated security appliances for enterprise branch offices and small businesses have been among the fastest growing products in the company’s “advanced technologies” portfolio. The addition of Meru’s intelligent Wi-Fi solutions to the Fortinet portfolio extends the delivery of a secure, uninterrupted user experience – anytime anywhere – providing peak performance in environments requiring high capacity load and a high-density of wireless users, such as enterprise, education, healthcare, and hospitality.  “To truly protect against all possible attack vectors, we are continuing to expand our market-leading end-to-end security platform to provide customers with the visibility and continuous threat protection they need – from the data centre, to the cloud to the end-point,” said Ken Xie, founder, chairman and CEO of Fortinet. “We expect the acquisition of Meru to help us deliver new solutions and services to help enterprises of all sizes deploy, manage, and secure wired and wireless networks in a mobile era.”  Fortinet and Meru customers will benefit from Fortinet’s commitment to providing secure, uninterrupted connectivity for their highly mobile end-users, while offering channel partners a broader solutions portfolio to take to market.  With the completion of the transaction, Meru employees officially join Fortinet.  In connection with the acquisition, Fortinet is paying $1.63 per Meru share in cash, an equity value of approximately $44 million for the transaction. Fortinet first completed the tender offer for all outstanding shares of Meru by accepting for payment all such shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn as of the expiration time of the tender offer, which represented approximately 60.18% of Meru’s outstanding shares. Subsequently, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortinet merged with and into Meru, resulting in Meru becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Fortinet. As a result of the merger, all remaining shares of Meru not purchased by Fortinet in the tender offer (other than shares owned by Meru, Fortinet or their subsidiaries and shares subject to properly exercised appraisal rights claims) were converted into the right to receive the aforementioned cash payment. All shares of Meru are expected to be delisted from the NASDAQ stock market.  About Fortinet Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) protects the most valuable assets of some of the largest enterprise, service provider and government organisations across the globe. The company's fast, secure and global cyber security solutions provide broad, high-performance protection against dynamic security threats while simplifying the IT infrastructure.

Fortinet closes acquisition of Meru Networks 2015-07-22T06:30:00Z fortinet-closes-acquisition-of-meru-networks Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT), the global leader in high-performance cyber security solutions, has announced it has closed the acquisition of Meru Networks (NASDAQ:MERU), a leader in intelligent Wi-Fi networking. With the close of this acquisition, Fortinet expands on its secure wireless vision and enterprise growth focus, broadens the company’s solutions portfolio, and expands its opportunity to uniquely address the $5B global enterprise Wi-Fi market with integrated and intelligent secure wireless solutions.Fortinet’s proven solutions in secure Wi-Fi markets, with its FortiAP secure wireless access points and FortiWiFi integrated security appliances for enterprise branch offices and small businesses have been among the fastest growing products in the company’s “advanced technologies” portfolio. The addition of Meru’s intelligent Wi-Fi solutions to the Fortinet portfolio extends the delivery of a secure, uninterrupted user experience – anytime anywhere – providing peak performance in environments requiring high capacity load and a high-density of wireless users, such as enterprise, education, healthcare, and hospitality.“To truly protect against all possible attack vectors, we are continuing to expand our market-leading end-to-end security platform to provide customers with the visibility and continuous threat protection they need – from the data centre, to the cloud to the end-point,” said Ken Xie, founder, chairman and CEO of Fortinet. “We expect the acquisition of Meru to help us deliver new solutions and services to help enterprises of all sizes deploy, manage, and secure wired and wireless networks in a mobile era.”Fortinet and Meru customers will benefit from Fortinet’s commitment to providing secure, uninterrupted connectivity for their highly mobile end-users, while offering channel partners a broader solutions portfolio to take to market.With the completion of the transaction, Meru employees officially join Fortinet. In connection with the acquisition, Fortinet is paying $1.63 per Meru share in cash, an equity value of approximately $44 million for the transaction. Fortinet first completed the tender offer for all outstanding shares of Meru by accepting for payment all such shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn as of the expiration time of the tender offer, which represented approximately 60.18% of Meru’s outstanding shares. Subsequently, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fortinet merged with and into Meru, resulting in Meru becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Fortinet. As a result of the merger, all remaining shares of Meru not purchased by Fortinet in the tender offer (other than shares owned by Meru, Fortinet or their subsidiaries and shares subject to properly exercised appraisal rights claims) were converted into the right to receive the aforementioned cash payment. All shares of Meru are expected to be delisted from the NASDAQ stock market.About Fortinet Fortinet (NASDAQ: FTNT) protects the most valuable assets of some of the largest enterprise, service provider and government organisations across the globe.

Meru XPress Cloud: A powerful, intuitive, affordable Wi-Fi Solution for small-to-medium enterprises 2015-03-09T06:49:23Z meru-xpress-cloud-a-powerful-intuitive-affordable-wi-fi-solution-for-small-to-medium-enterprises February 11, 2015 - Meru Networks® (NASDAQ: MERU), a leader in intelligent Wi-Fi networking, has announced the availability of Meru XPress Cloud, a controller-less 802.11ac Wi-Fi solution featuring cloud-based management that is purpose-built for small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) and distributed enterprises. The XPress Cloud portfolio includes the new Meru XP8i access point, with management software hosted by Meru and delivered through industry-leading, highly-secure data centre providers worldwide. With Meru XPress Cloud, only network management traffic traverses the cloud; all corporate data remains behind the firewall. "The Meru XPress Cloud Wi-Fi network was incredibly easy to set up compared to the Aruba system we replaced," said Jeremy Carr, CIO of InQuest Technologies, Inc. "Our wireless LAN has been running great since we made the switch. Access to the XPress Cloud management platform has made it easier than ever to monitor the wireless devices on our network and the performance of each access point."Tailor-made for SMEs SMEs globally account for approximately 95 per cent of private sector firms and employ over two-thirds of workers1, many of whom bring or are issued multiple mobile devices for use in the office. Supporting the increasingly high density of mobile devices in the workplace is a critical business function, not achievable by the consumer-grade Wi-Fi solutions in use by many smaller organisations today. "Smaller businesses require the same high levels of performance and security that enterprises do, though IT support levels are typically much lower," said Zeus Kerravala, principal analyst at ZK Research. "Meru XPress Cloud is designed to give SMEs enterprise-grade capabilities, with ease-of-use and intuitive management specifically designed to meet their needs."Ease of deployment  XPress Cloud is designed to be easily deployed by general office staff with little or no IT experience. Only a PoE-capable Ethernet switch or an optional external power supply, along with a basic Internet connection, are required to have an enterprise-grade wireless network up and running in minutes. The high-performance, two-radio, 2X2, 802.11ac Meru XP8i offers zero-touch provisioning, with automated channel and power selection capabilities enabling instant self-configuration. Meru XPress Cloud also features an integrated captive portal for secure on-boarding of employee and guest devices.Channel-enabled acquisition and deployment options  XPress Cloud is available through authorised Meru channel partners and features management portal customisation, enabling partner-branded offerings. Meru gives customers two options for the acquisition of XPress Cloud, with XP8i access points available for purchase upfront, or available on a Wi-Fi-as-a-Service (WaaS), subscription basis. Monthly management and monitoring license fees apply. "We've worked closely with small-to-medium enterprises around the world to understand what they need to meet their unique business demands," said Don Trimble, vice president of SME Cloud Sales at Meru. "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."Availability XPress Cloud is available now.

That robust feature set is now extended to employees who take advantage of their company’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, as well as remote workers, telecommuters, and any of a company’s mobile workforce.   With the app, you can make and receive calls, record, transfer, and 3-way conference. Your favourite contacts are automatically displayed with their status details, and all of your Switchvox contacts are available for direct calls and transfers to voicemail. You can also access your iPhone contacts to dial any number via Switchvox. A call log displays your recent calls for easy reference and re-dialing, and audio options let you use the speaker or a headset.   The app also includes voicemail (play, delete, and call-back), and easy access to your status setting. The status you set in the app is available for your Switchvox coworkers to see, and can control what happens to your incoming calls and what greeting is played when callers reach your voicemail. The Switchvox Softphone for iPhone supports iOS 8 and is available for free in the Apple Store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/switchvox-softphone/id905124827?ls=1&mt=8.  It’s easily assigned to a Switchvox phone extension and requires a Switchvox subscription.
