Xirrus Helps Tecnológico de Monterrey Solve Their Student Density Issue with a Robust 802.11n Network

Tecnológico de Monterrey Selected Xirrus for Their Ability to Support more Simultaneous Users with Fewer Devices than Any Other Vendor

Thousand Oaks, CA, September 01, 2010 --(PR.com)-- 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 Tecnológico de Monterrey’s main campus in Monterrey, Mexico. For almost 70 years Tecnológico de Monterrey has endeavored to provide the best academic environment possible for its students and staff. As part of this endeavor, the school deployed Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays to solve their user density issues and provide a robust and reliable wireless network for learning applications.

“One of our top priorities is to use the best technology possible for the staff and students,” said Omar Hernández Diaz, Telecommunications, Network and IT Area Manager at Tecnológico de Monterrey. “When wireless technology began, we took the initiative to test it out in our labs. We upgraded our technology as it advanced over the years but we always had one specific problem area: the library. This is the one building that consistently has a very large number of users online at any given time and the wireless equipment we were using was not able to handle the density. To solve this problem, we invited several vendors out to set up their equipment and show us what they can do. Xirrus was the only Wi-Fi vendor that could get enough simultaneous users online with the speeds we wanted. In the end, our decision was based on performance and Xirrus could provide that for us.”

Omar continued by explaining the ease of their Xirrus installation, “The process was very simple. It took a day and a half at most to deploy 20 Arrays here at the Monterrey campus including the time it took to test the system. The installation was about a year ago and since then we have been very happy with the equipment. The number of support tickets has reduced significantly and we don’t have any problems with the large number of users we see in a typical day. For the first time since we went wireless, we have been able to supply our students and faculty with a robust and reliable wireless network for all of their educational applications.”
