Aruba Networks buys Meridian Apps

by Curtis Lee Fulton

Aruba Networks, maker of enterprise mobile access technology, said it’s buying Meridian Apps, an indoor mobile map application developer. Aruba CTO Keerti Melkote said that while “GPS-based wayfinding solutions are extraordinarily popular,” they “don’t work well indoors.”  Melkote said Aruba plans to create “‘indoor GPS’ using Aruba’s Wi-Fi infrastructure and Meridian’s wayfinding platform.”
