Xirrus Announces General Availability of the XT-5003
Jun 12 13
Xirrus announced general availability of the XT-5003, a three-port in-wall Gigabit Ethernet Switch that provides wired port replication to support a wide range of in-room services. The XT-5003 switch provides plug-and-play simplicity for the delivery of wireless and wired-based IP-based services to users by leveraging existing cable infrastructure. XT-5003 enables connectivity without additional cable infrastructure and without a separate switch being installed somewhere in the room. These capabilities are especially relevant in many older hotels and higher education campuses where it is difficult to run cables through the facility. The XT-5003 operates on Power over Ethernet (PoE+), eliminating the need to run dedicated power to the switch. The XT-5003 can then be used to connect and power a PoE-enabled wireless access point to deliver wireless services to the room and potentially adjacent rooms in addition. The three-port switch provides the flexibility to connect devices from either the front panel or in-wall connections via 10/100/1000Mbps autosensing ports. The XT-5003 supports QoS with 802.1p VLAN prioritization, which ensures appropriate allocation of bandwidth to critical applications. XT-5003 provides hotels with the ability to offer guests in-room Internet access for multiple devices and other amenities such as network-enabled television. It enables colleges and universities to provide high-speed connectivity in dorm rooms for laptops, in-room printers, smartphones, iPads, and other devices, whether connected by wireless or wired.
Monte Vista Christian School Adopts Xirrus Wi-Fi
Jun 5 13
Xirrus announced the results of its installation of Xirrus Wireless Arrays at Monte Vista Christian School, an independent, coeducational, college-preparatory school in Watsonville, California. Monte Vista Christian School chose Xirrus to improve opportunities for digital learning for its 1,000 students and staff across a 100-acre campus and to enable wireless interaction between students and teachers. Following the initial deployment, online learning and real-time collaboration on group assignments are a reality -- and school officials report improved student test scores. IT staff at Monte Vista deployed the first wave of Xirrus Arrays in response to slow connections, network blackouts, and unacceptable application delays that faculty, staff and students experienced with their existing wireless access points (AP's). Supporting 900 students and 100 staff members with iPads, together with 700 smartphones and 300 desktops, Monte Vista utilizes 30 Xirrus Wireless Arrays -- just 23% of the original 130+ AP's that Monte Vista once required.
