Xirrus introduces new 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi access points
Xirrus claims its offering is distinct as it 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 with 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. The adaptive Wi-Fi solution provides the full suite of Wave 2 features, enabling Xirrus to deliver the highest performance and most adaptive cloud managed Wi-Fi solutions available, the company said.
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, organisations 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 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 – a 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% 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.
Xirrus offers the fastest Wi-Fi on the planet with the broadest and most flexible portfolio of Wave 2 products available on the market,” said Bruce Miller, VP of product marketing, Xirrus. “Many Wi-Fi vendors offer Wave 2, but none offer the full spectrum of features and speed available with the latest standard. Xirrus Wave 2 solutions provide the greatest flexibility, density and adaptivity at the lowest cost in the industry.
