Xirrus 802.11n Enhances Wi-Fi Performance at Washburn University

Washburn University is an 160-acre campus located in Topeka, Kansas. The university provides broadly-based liberal arts and professional education by combining the most effective modes of educating its 6,901 enrolled students. To improve the Wi-Fi Performance for their faculty, students, and staff, Washburn University set out to deploy a 802.11n network across the campus. Doing so, they chose to deploy Xirrus 802.11abg+n Wi-Fi Arrays.

After much research and testing multiple Wi-Fi architectures, Washburn University found that Xirrus was the only company capable of delivering the Wi-Fi Bandwidth and throughput to support the campus’ high density classrooms, lecture halls, and dorms. “The Xirrus 802.11n Arrays put the power and intelligence where it shoud be – at the edge of the network,” said Kevin Halgren, Assistant Director of Systems and Services at Washburn University.

The Xirrus Array allows the university to deploy more radios to cover more users than access points from other competitive companies. In the end, Washburn University got more for their money and spent less than what they would have if they deployed another company.

    Seems like Washburn really had their mind on right. They wanted to improve the campus for their students. Great thing they went with Xirrus.

    However, how fast did Xirrus come out to do the supposed “free site survey” and were you required to buy at the end?
