The Schiller International University in Madrid Selects Xirrus® Wi-Fi Arrays™ to Increase Student Learning
Xirrus, Inc., the Wi-Fi “Power-Play” that delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, and throughput in the industry, announces the deployment of their 802.11abg Wi-Fi Arrays at Schiller International University (an American University) in Madrid, Spain (Madrid campus). The Madrid campus, one of the European campuses of Schiller, choose Xirrus because their Wi-Fi Arrays proved to be the only Wi-Fi solution capable of delivering the coverage, user density, and bandwidth needed for student e-learning applications.
“We have students from over 40 countries coming to study International Business, International Economics, International Relations and Diplomacy, General Studies, and more, said Vasil Hadzi Jordanov, Global IT Operation Director at Schiller International University, Madrid. “To better serve our students and professors, we sought to install a school-wide Wi-Fi network. We looked at several Wi-Fi vendors, searching for a solution that could provide a pervasive and reliable connection and was easy to install and manage.”
“We were amazed by the professionalism of the Xirrus team and the capabilities of their Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays,” added Vasil Hadzi. “Unlike other vendors who guess at the number of access points required, Xirrus came to our school, performed an actual site survey, and delivered a detailed plan. Our students now have full server and web access anywhere throughout our school, including the outside courtyards. The Xirrus Wi-Fi network provides a high-speed wireless network equal to our wired network—providing the bandwidth and throughout needed along with a simplified central management system—that traditional access points couldn’t come close to achieving.”
“By going with the Xirrus Wi-Fi Array solution, the Madrid campus was able to increase the learning of its students while saving time and money over cumbersome controller-based Wi-Fi designs,” said Vladimir Urayev, Regional Director for Xirrus. “Not only did we deliver a high performance network with more bandwidth and throughput than any other architecture, but we did it with far few devices, cable drops, and switch ports than the competition.
