St. Andrew’s Anglican College Deploys Wire-like Reliability Via Xirrus Wi-FI Arrays

Xirrus was Chosen for Their Convenient Site-Surveys and Outstanding Support

Online PR News – 24-August-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 St. Andrew’s Anglican College campus in Queensland, Australia. As the college experiences rapid growth in enrollment, their technology must be continuously updated to fill the growing demands of an expanding educational environment. St. Andrew’s deployed Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays because the Xirrus architecture delivers the performance, reliability, and future upgrades needed for their ever-expanding student population.

Rory Chapman, IT Manager at St. Andrew’s Anglican College explains one main reason for choosing Xirrus, “I researched quite a lot of vendors and their products and one of the big things for me in choosing Xirrus was that they were the only company to send someone out on-site to show me the product - to set it up in our school and give me real density and coverage results. Other vendors provided computer based survey results that they did off our plans but I found that having the actual people come in and do the survey on-site was a much better benefit.”

Rory continued by explaining his tests of the Xirrus system, “We set up a large number of the laptops on one Array just to test the density and there was absolutely no performance loss at all, even with a large number of devices on one of the smaller four radio Arrays. We have a number of the eight radio Arrays as well which I imagine will cope with even higher density than that. The real test will be when we start our 1-to-1 program, but I have no qualms that the equipment will perform as I expect.”
