The Array technology from Xirrus provides a level of reliability, performance and security as good as or better when compared to wired. The company’s arrays combine two to 16 radios, a high-gain directional antenna, onboard multi-gigabit switch, controller, firewall, threat sensor and a spectrum analyzer when compared to traditional AP technology.
Recently, VAD Wick Hill (News - Alert) reveealed that the company will distribute Xirrus high performance wireless networks in the UK, where it believes there are good margins and great opportunities for offering services which consist of surveys and implementations.
Xirrus architecture offers up to 4X the coverage, 8X the bandwidth and 8X the capacity. With this customers can utilize less arrays, cabling, switching and general infrastructure expenditure during implementation.
With this distribution deal, Wick Hill is looking to explore opportunities both in green field sites and in companies which already have wireless hot spots. They are also looking to offer services where flexible, upgradeable enterprise class wireless is required, the company stated.
Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “The fast growth of BYOD is just one of the indicators that the world is moving increasingly to wireless. It's more cost-effective, more convenient, less disruptive and encourages productivity. Currently, however, most wireless installations are patchy and unreliable. With wireless applications requiring ever-increasing capacity and full coverage, wireless-aware organisations are looking to implement solutions that meet their immediate and long term needs.”
Recently, the company also revealed that it will be distributing Zenprise mobile device management solutions in the UK and Germany. Based in Silicon Valley, Zenprise (News - Alert) is a provider of mobile device management and offers solutions which are in the leaders' quadrant in Gartners' Magic Quadrant for mobile device management software. Apart from providing features such as security, monitoring, support and decommissioning, this comprehensive, feature-rich solution also covers deployment, configuration and provisioning.
