Canterbury College Saves Time and Money with Xirrus Wi-Fi


Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays Provide a Reliable Network with 75% Fewer Devices

Kent, United Kingdom, November 26, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Xirrus®, the only Wi-Fi Power Play in the industry, announced today the deployment of Xirrus high performance Wi-Fi Arrays campus-wide at Canterbury College, located in Kent, United Kingdom. As one of the largest Further and Higher Education Colleges in the South East with approximately ten thousand students, Canterbury College considers a reliable wireless network a necessity. After thorough investigation of several Wi-Fi solutions, Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays were chosen to support their rapidly growing population of wireless devices on campus. Unlike other Wi-Fi vendors, Xirrus could offer scalability, reliability, and density with 75% fewer devices, installation time, and cost.

“We looked at the pros and cons of the different Wi-Fi systems and found that we could install the Xirrus system at a lower cost and with a shorter installation time,” said Rob Arnold, Acting Computer Support Manager at Canterbury College. “What helped us massively was the site survey that Xirrus provided. In the past, when we’ve looked at other Wi-Fi vendors, you’re hoping for coverage but you’re not quite sure what you’re actually going to get. With an upfront survey that is guaranteed, it really gave us confidence that we were going to buy Wi-Fi that meets our needs.”

Rob continued by describing the ease of management, “The Xirrus management software makes it so much easier to monitor than some of the other systems we looked at – We don’t have to look at each individual Array, we can simply configure all of the devices at once and put SSIDs up whenever we need to. We made a big investment in infrastructure for our facilities, so we wanted to make sure the Wi-Fi network was right up there with it at the cutting edge. People expect to have Wi-Fi when they come to an institution like ours… Xirrus allows us to offer it easily and manageably.”
