Xirrus Recognized as De-Facto Standard in Delivering Highly Scalable Wireless Services to Large Public Venues Worldwide
Xirrus, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, today announced that it continues to expand its competitive dominance in meeting the wireless requirements of large public venues (LPVs) around the globe. In the first half of 2013, Xirrus saw accelerated expansion of its list of convention center, meeting venue and sporting stadium customers.
Xirrus, already the sole supplier of wireless services to the computer industry’s premier Interop conference and the largest U.S. convention center, the Sands, extended its lead in this sector with the addition of high-profile customers such as Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and RAI Amsterdam. Xirrus also added the Liverpool Football Club and Australian Turf Club to its roster of sports complex customers – and now provides facility-wide Wi-Fi service to many of the leading venues worldwide including Moscone Center, National Exhibition Center, Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, Alexandra Palace, Tampa Convention Center, Scottish Exhibition Center, Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Saatchi Gallery, Geneva’s Palexpo Exhibition Center, and many others.
Venues of all types are deploying Wi-Fi and selecting Xirrus to deliver a service to their visitors, fans, and guests. A recent deployment is the Johnny Cash Museum.
Our venue is much more than a traditional museum; it is a place that allows visitors to experience the very essence of an international icon,” said Bill Miller, founder of the Johnny Cash Museum. “We chose Xirrus to extend our museum experience. Today, the magic of Johnny Cash emanates from digital tours, streaming music and videos, and wireless applications that guests enjoy as they take a stroll back in time. Xirrus has enabled us to present the legend in an even more tangible and memorable way.” Xirrus executives attribute the global adoption of Xirrus Wi-Fi technology to the company’s success in helping meeting, stadium and convention center planners anticipate and plan for the massive adoption and use of mobile devices across a facility or a multi-facility site. Xirrus wireless networks are uniquely suited to the requirements of LPVs, scaling to ultra-high-user-density environments. Additionally, Xirrus networks enable significant monetization opportunities for the wireless network by providing an extensible platform for third party application integration and development.
Wi-Fi use in public venues worldwide has exploded, and there’s no longer any question about the role that Wi-Fi services play in building consumer loyalty and contributing to revenue,” said Steven Wastie, chief marketing officer of Xirrus. “At the same time, technology demands vary wildly with the ebb and flow of event attendees, and Wi-Fi providers must deliver flawless service up to the perimeter of multi-site venues, stadiums and convention centers. The equation seems simple, but few Wi-Fi providers have understood what Xirrus has been delivering for years: cross-facility coverage, and the scalability to expand at any speed without rearchitecting the wireless network.”
