  • (1888PressRelease) August 11, 2010 - Xirrus®, the leader in High Performance Wi-Fi that delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, and user density in the industry, announced today the deployment of Xirrus high performance 802.11n Wi-Fi Arrays across the Adams 12 Five Star School District in Thornton, Colorado. As a large district with 45,000 students and 5000 employees, a robust wireless system that can support a large number of concurrent users is a necessity. Adams 12 chose to deploy Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays to fill this need as their unique architecture creates a reliable wireless environment that can support more users with fewer devices than any other Wi-Fi vendor.

    David Bonsett, CIO at Adams 12 Five Star Schools, explains why he chose Xirrus to supply the district's wireless, "We really wanted something that was going to be easy to manage, give us high capacity, and provide us with full coverage. We chose Xirrus because they could offer all of these things. Adams 12 has implemented a program for teachers that include presentation carts. These carts constantly roam and we can never predict where they're going to be, so a wireless system was imperative. The high density and full coverage of Xirrus wireless has made our system much more cost effective and user friendly for our teachers and students."

    David continued by explaining the benefits of choosing Xirrus, "I think one of the benefits of Xirrus is that their sales engineers are all very technical and they understand the environment they're working in - this has cut down on the amount of work we've had to do on our end. Xirrus has been very easy to work with - they come out and do a site survey to make sure you have complete connectivity throughout the building. They guarantee this coverage and after the Arrays are hung, they come back to make sure there really is full coverage. If the coverage isn't what they guaranteed, then they'll add Arrays, retune Arrays, or move the Arrays around to make sure the entire building is lit up. The customer service has been excellent with Xirrus. They follow through on all of their commitments, they're very easy to work with, and they are very professional and understanding of the learning process to make sure it's not interrupted."
