ISTEC Enhances Student Learning with a Robust and Reliable 802.11n Network from Xirrus

Xirrus Delivers Unmatched Coverage and Bandwidth for ISTEC's e-Learning Platform.

Xirrus?, the leader in High Performance Wi-Fi that delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, and user density in the industry, announced today the deployment of Xirrus high performance 802.11n Wi-Fi Arrays at the Instituto Superior de Tecnologias Avan?adas in Lisbon, Portugal. ISTEC prides itself in providing the best and most advanced technologies to aid in the education of their students. Their Xirrus deployment helps them attain this goal by providing more wireless range and throughput for their e-Learning platform with fewer devices than any other wireless vendor.

Paulo Silva, Network Administrator at ISTEC explains why they chose Xirrus over other Wi-Fi vendors, "Xirrus was the best option for us because they require less infrastructure. With the other systems, in order to have the same coverage that Xirrus gives us, we needed something between 25-30 access points. With Xirrus we cover the same area with four Arrays, one of which is a backup because three could do it but due to the saturation of the number of students per area we decided to use a fourth as backup."

Paulo continued by explaining how Xirrus has improved their wireless experience, "We had Wi-Fi before Xirrus but the problem with those access points was that they quickly became saturated due to the number of devices hooking up to the wireless network. Changing the old system to the Xirrus solution only took about an hour and a half - basically 20 minutes per Array. We just unhooked the old ones, plugged in the Arrays and it was working. As simple as that. We've had Xirrus installed for about three months and all this time we've had no need for any technical support. They simply came out, configured each Array, installed them, and it has been working ever since."
