Dépèche transmise le 6 avril 2010 par PRNewswire

THOUSAND OAKS, California, April 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Xirrus(R), the Wi-Fi "Power Play" 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 Asheville Regional Airport facilities, located in Asheville, NC. This 163-acre complex consists of a terminal area, with air carrier facilities occupying 50 acres, rental car facilities, maintenance facilities, two fixed based operators and a department of public safety. Asheville Regional Airport services over 37,000 passengers each month by six major airline carriers. Upgrading to Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays offered the capability to handle the coverage and density requirements demanded by the constant influx of passengers, as well as effectively supporting the needs of the facilities daily operations.

"Our initial plan to expand our wireless coverage was going to require upwards of 30 traditional APs. That's when we took a look at Xirrus and found we only required 10 Xirrus Arrays -- we bought less and got more bang for our buck," said Royce Holden, IT Director for the Asheville Regional Airport Authority. "We needed a solution that wasn't going to tax us with additional costs for ethernet cables and switches. When we found the Xirrus solution we were really excited -- we could upgrade to a high performance wireless network and save substantial costs on the entire project."

Royce continued, "When Xirrus comes in to replace a system -- I think it's much easier than another vendor coming in. With the Integrated Array architecture, you don't have to deal with additional controllers or adding additional switches -- it's pretty much a plug-and-play wireless infrastructure. The design of the Xirrus Array effortlessly covers wide-open areas with high ceilings and is capable of handling the density required when you have a lot of people in one area -- Xirrus was made for airport facilities. Since we put Xirrus in, we haven't had a single complaint -- which is great for us!"
