Partnership Uniquely Addresses the Requirements for Wireless Performance and Coverage in Campus Environments with High Volumes of Mobile Devices, Bandwidth Intensive Applications and Media
Online PR News – 23-September-2011 – – Xirrus®, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, today announced a partnership with Logical Choice Technologies, a leading national provider of educational technology solutions. The partnership will help schools, colleges and universities achieve campus-wide high-performance wireless coverage for an fast growing population of students and faculty who use smartphones, tablets, and streaming media. The partnership will offer fully integrated wireless technology and services, combining high-performance, scalable wireless network solutions from Xirrus with sales and services from Logical Choice Technologies.
It’s estimated by *2015 each person will have seven connected devices and schools will see a huge influx of high-bandwidth wireless mobile devices. They will become increasingly dependent on Wi-Fi for everything from downloading lesson plans to running programs on interactive whiteboards and legacy wireless systems cannot handle the required bandwidth or provide the needed scalability to support demand. Xirrus overcomes both problems by providing high-bandwidth, upgradable wireless access points in cost-effective systems that can be deployed rapidly and are fully upgradable. With Xirrus, Logical Choice Technologies will provide leading educational technology solutions incorporating state-of-the-art wireless offerings that scale to meet current and anticipated future customer needs.
“Xirrus is pleased to partner with Logical Choice Technologies to provide advanced wireless access solutions at all levels of education,” said Rick Hartley, director of US channel operations, Xirrus. “They understand the challenges of meeting wireless demand in dense environments – challenges that are intensified by the unprecedented adoption of iPads and other mobile devices on campus. We see Logical Choice Technologies as our ideal partner in our mission to provide the most responsive services to the education market.”
“So many of the schools we work with are implementing learning initiatives with 1 or 2 wireless devices per student,” said Cynthia Kaye, CEO at Logical Choice Technologies. “Supplying wireless access to every student in every classroom is far too much of a strain on most schools’ wireless networks. As a result, we’ve seen the bottleneck that arises from increased demands on school networks. Xirrus Arrays solves these bandwidth problems in innovative, efficient and cost-effective ways. Partnering with them to bring such solutions to schools across the nation just seemed like a natural fit for us. We are very excited to move forward with Xirrus.”
