  • (1888PressRelease) December 02, 2010 - Xirrus®, the only Wi-Fi Power Play in the industry, announced today the deployment of Xirrus high performance Wi-Fi Arrays at New College in Swindon, United Kingdom. New College is a Sixth-Form College and has quickly become the premier academic provider of A Levels and GCSEs for school-leavers in the wider Swindon area. Since opening in 1984, the College has expanded its range to include highly-successful access to Higher Education, degree courses, and a business services arm. Providing state-of-the-art education services is the goal of this rapidly developing 21st century College. By upgrading to Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays, New College could easily achieve their density demands with a scalable network, while offering a quality of service unmatched by other vendor offerings.

    "Our previous network couldn't support the steady growth of wireless devices that our students and faculty bring onto campus," stated Phil Quinn, ICT Manager at New College. "The user demand on our network has surpassed the level which the original wireless system was designed for. We knew we needed to find a wireless solution that could support our current density requirements, while offering scalability to our network. Xirrus offered that and much more. Xirrus is very aware of the constraints that IT is under and has built a product that solves many of the issues we faced with our previous wireless solution."

    Phil continued, "We have a strong focus on wireless technology and offering mobility to our students and faculty is a priority. By selecting Xirrus, not only were we able to drastically reduce the number of wireless devices we needed to deploy, but we were also able to reduce our power consumption costs, while offering a quality of service unmatched by any other vendor offerings. Xirrus stands behind their product and was willing to offer a coverage guarantee. This was something we couldn't overlook in our decision process and we are confident we made the right choice in selecting the Xirrus product."
