Xirrus, Inc. Key Developments

Xirrus, Inc Introduces MSP Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi Solution and Enhancements to Xirrus CommandCenter

Xirrus, Inc. introduced an MSP cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution and enhancements to Xirrus CommandCenter. Created specifically for the MSP market, this intuitive interface provides a simple, aggregated method to monitor thousands of customer locations, providing powerful visibility and monitoring, fast problem identification and operational triage. Additionally, new application programming interfaces (APIs) enable MSPs to integrate their service platforms into a Xirrus Wi-Fi network faster and more efficiently than other solutions. Xirrus CommandCenter, a component of the Xirrus Management System (XMS) for Cloud, significantly simplifies and speeds up the provisioning process for new customer installations which accelerates time to revenue for MSPs. The company partners can independently create and maintain cloud-managed Wi-Fi service offerings for their customers regardless of location or size. APIs allow common operations such as dynamic creation and change of Wi-Fi networks within the existing operational workflow and, visibility into client location. Xirrus CommandCenter benefits include: create and manage an unlimited number of customers for ultimate scale, add new customer accounts and activate instantly and autonomously, simple drag/drop assignment of equipment to and from customer accounts, fast problem resolution with built-in support and feedback tools, low wide area network traffic requirements leveraging distributed Xirrus AP architecture, integrated EasyPass access services for guests, BYOD and employees, single sign-on (SSO) Wi-Fi access integration with Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps ecosystems and extensible architecture with API integration into operations systems.

Xirrus Introduces XA4 Ultra High Density Wi-Fi Solution to Meet Connectivity Demands of Large Public Venues

Xirrus announced the XA4, four-radio 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi solution that incorporates external antennas to optimize coverage and performance in large venues and open-space environments. Unlike other solutions that only manage up to 500 connections, the XA4 manages up to 1,000 simultaneous connections. The Xirrus XA4 provides extremely adaptable, high-density Wi-Fi for a superior user experience in locations such as convention centers, arenas, transportation hubs and warehouses. Xirrus high-density access points (APs) reduce the amount of equipment deployed by up to 75% and decrease total cost of ownership by up to 50% versus competitive solutions. Xirrus XA4 benefits include: Ultra high density - Four radio AP supports up to 1,000 Wi-Fi connections simultaneously, which significantly reduces equipment, maintenance, and installation costs. Customized coverage - External antennas provide the flexibility to fine-tune radio frequency coverage for high density areas and optimize spectrum usage. Superior Wi-Fi experience - Supports the full specification of 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi at up to 3.47 Gbps data rates per radio (faster than any other solution on the market) and a total of 16 multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) streams per AP. Adaptive architecture - Software-defined solution allows venues to grow and adapt over time as Wi-Fi clientschange. All four radios on the XA4 can operate at full 802.11ac Wave 2 speeds -- four times what traditional APs offer.· Flexible Management - Cloud-based or on-premise Xirrus Management System (XMS) provides zero-touch provisioning, integrated EasyPass access control, and powerful analytics to maximize the utility of the Wi-Fi network to the venue.

Xirrus EasyPass Integrates With Microsoft Office 365 for Easy, Instant Wi-Fi Access

Xirrus announced integration with Microsoft Office 365 authentication to streamline Wi-Fi connectivity for organizations using Microsoft cloud-based office applications. A feature of the Xirrus EasyPass suite of access services, this new functionality simplifies and expedites how organizations deliver secure Wi-Fi access via the cloud-based Microsoft authentication system they are already using. To save on costs and meet performance requirements, businesses increasingly leverage cloud-hosted offerings over self-hosted or stand-alone applications. According to a recent 451 Research survey, cloud-first workload deployments in enterprises are common, as 38% of enterprise respondents indicated that they prioritize cloud-managed applications over on-premise applications. Microsoft cloud-based applications for businesses have one of the footprints within the enterprise. Adoption for Microsoft Office 365 soared from 12.4 million subscribers to 22.2 million between Microsoft's fiscal third quarter of 2015 and third quarter of 2016. Xirrus EasyPass with Microsoft Office 365 integration adds additional cost and performance benefits by combining authentication through the Microsoft cloud ecosystem with local Wi-Fi network access. Microsoft login credentials, unique to every person and used to access Microsoft applications, now also provide access to the Xirrus Wi-Fi network with a single sign-on experience.
