New high-density access points aim to connect education users with all-encompassing wi-fi connectivity

Xirrus, provider of next generation, cloud-enabled Wi-Fi networks, announced new four and eight-radio high density 802.11ac Wave 2 wi-fi access points (APs) resulting in what the company says is the broadest Wave 2 portfolio in the wi-fi industry.

Xirrus offers the only software-defined wi-fi solution that enables an all Wave 2 solution, which delivers up to eight times the Wave 2 capacity per AP compared to competitive solutions.

The new four radio XD and eight radio XR high density Wave 2 solutions were built specifically to address the connectivity challenges that enterprises, educational institutions and public venues face. Launching the only adaptive wi-fi solution that provides the full suite of Wave 2 features, Xirrus delivers the highest performance and most adaptive cloud managed wi-fi solutions available.

As new Wave 2 devices emerge in the market, wi-fi networks must support these new technologies without requiring a complete network overhaul. According to a recent report, 802.11ac Wave 2 wi-fi solutions will become the highest shipping wi-fi standard in the near future.

“With wi-fi user experience and connectivity expectations at an all-time high, organizations cannot ignore new technology standards when upgrading network infrastructure,” said Matthias Machowinski, senior research director, IHS. “The Xirrus Wave 2 portfolio includes features to address today’s requirements for fast, reliable,and flexible wi-fi across a broad range of environments, including high density deployments.”

Xirrus XD and XR Wave 2 solutions provide:
Superior Wi-Fi experience – Full suite of Wave 2 Wi-Fi features on all AP radios, each capable of up to 3.47 Gbps (faster than any other solutions on the market) and four-stream multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO)
Adaptive architecture – Software-defined solution works with existing infrastructure and empowers one-click migration to a 100 percent Wave 2 network when needed
Flexible Management – Cloud-based or on-premise Xirrus Management System (XMS) offers zero-touch provisioning and integrated EasyPass access control at no additional charge

“With new devices and technologies emerging every day, our customers constantly face the challenge of delivering fast, flexible Wi-Fi to their users. Xirrus Wi-Fi allows us to address those customer needs,” said Bob Gentzler, president, OXEN Technology. “With Xirrus we are well equipped to deploy a full featured Wave 2 solution today that allows our customers to easily upgrade capacity as their needs continue to grow. No other competitive solution delivers the flexibility, performance, reliability and security that Xirrus does.”
