inTechnology Replaces Colubris Networks with Xirrus

Distributor, inTechnology, has brought on US-based Wi-Fi vendor, Xirrus, to strengthen its play in the education sector.

Xirrus replaces Colubris Networks, in the inTechnology line up after the WLAN vendor was acquired by HP in 2008.

“We have watched them for the last 18 months or so in the US and opened a dialogue with them maybe six months ago and started talking to them about how we can start developing the market down here,” inTechnology group sales and marketing director, Mark Winter, said. “We were very fortunate with the digital education revolution coming to fruition that a lot of the institutions are going to be deploying wireless to manage the laptops they are going to be buying. So Xirrus became a natural fit for us to look at bringing this on-board and really taking this technology to the market through our partners.”

inTechnology will carry the full range of Xirrus Wi-Fi products, including Wi-Fi Arrays, Management System, Defense Module, and Power over Gigabit Ethernet, and accessories.

The distributor will also be offering the Xirrus Arrays with Ekahau’s wireless site survey software along with Wi-Fi site survey training and education in each state in Q1, 2009, for partners. Additionally, partners will be able to access a free site survey offering.

“Channel partners and schools can both leverage that,” Winter said. “Once a site survey is done it is an imminent deployment. That is one of the things we see as being a really big benefit to partners.”

Winter added inTechnology is looking to recruit five dedicated channel partners in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane respectively, along with two or three in other states to strengthen its focus on the education, local and state government, and healthcare spaces.

International School in Europe Delivers 802.11n to Students

Xirrus, Inc., the Wi-Fi “Power-Play” that delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, and throughput in the industry, announces the deployment of 802.11abg+n Wi-Fi Arrays at the American School of Milan (ASM) in Milan, Italy. ASM is upgrading their legacy 802.11bg network to Xirrus 802.11n in order to provide greater capacity and bandwidth to their growing population of Wi-Fi users across their Milan Elementary and High Schools, including classrooms, science labs, library, cafeteria, and faculty offices.
ASM, founded in 1962 and currently one of the most advanced schools in Europe, hosts over 600 students from 35 different countries. The goal of ASM is to provide all of its students with an educational environment rich in technology, in which students are able to discover and develop their abilities to achieve personal results of absolute excellence.

“We take technology very seriously as it is a major part of our school – we have hundreds of Dell® and Apple® notebooks along with a growing number of iPods®, all connecting to online applications like virtual libraries and e-learning,” said Stephen Reiach, Director of Technology, ASM. “Our growing Wi-Fi population needed more wireless coverage and bandwidth, but we found the traditional access point vendors were limited in the amount of users and bandwidth they could support due to their radio design limitations – one to two radios per cable drop was expensive and time consuming.”

“Xirrus got it right – by combining the essential Wi-Fi components into a single device, we were able to quickly install a powerful Wi-Fi network that distributes the intelligence and security close to our users while giving us central control of the network,” added Stephen. “Before Xirrus, we had Wi-Fi hot spots – now we have nearly 20Gbps of Wi-Fi bandwidth spread throughout our school. What’s more, the Xirrus team in when called, performed a free site survey, installed the network, and guaranteed everything. We could not find another Wi-Fi solution that delivered the performance, user density, services, and cost savings that Xirrus delivered.”

“ASM wanted what many organizations want – pervasive Wi-Fi coverage with enough bandwidth to effectively replace the wired connection,” said Alberto Pellicani, Regional Manager at Xirrus. “Other Wi-Fi vendors claim their product can be an �all-wireless’ network, but fail to deliver on these claims due to their product limitations. The Xirrus Wi-Fi Array is the only Wi-Fi architecture that can replace Ethernet to the desktop – it is the industries only wireless workgroup switch – try it for yourself.”
