Xirrus Launches Operations in Germany to Meet Exploding Demand for Wireless Networks Supporting BYOD

Huge Numbers of Smartphones and Tablets Are Driving Demand for High-Performance and Secure Wi-Fi Access in Public Venues and Enterprise Networks

MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 09/18/12 -- Xirrus®, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, today announced that it is expanding into Germany, Europe's largest economy, citing significant international growth plans for the company. As in other markets, the huge numbers of smartphones and tablets are driving the demand for high-performance and secure Wi-Fi access in Germany's public venues and enterprise networks. Xirrus continues to see tremendous growth internationally with wins such as SAP, Messe Frankfurt, Deutsche Telekom, Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, and Hasso Plattner Institute.

During a visit to Germany in September, Shane Buckley, Xirrus CEO said, "Our business objective is to ensure that wireless replaces wired as the primary choice for network access. We lead the transformation from wired to wireless by providing the only wireless access solution capable of wire-like performance to organizations which increasingly depend on wireless to run and transform their business. We are expanding into Germany very rapidly, investing in talented manpower, the right strategy and plan to grow with an aggressive direct and partner channel."

The proliferation of tablets, smartphones, and other Wi-Fi devices is skyrocketing. Many organizations, regardless of size or specialty, are seeing the number of personal wireless devices rapidly increasing. The iPad, in particular, has changed the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) game with its rapid market adoption and appetite for media-rich content. The current generation of mobile users expects a high-quality wireless experience all the time, and they depend on it. When it's not there, productivity drops for business. It's all about the user experience, the use of applications, and application performance. How they connect and the user experience on the network is key to wireless success.

"The global enterprise WLAN market grew 25 percent last quarter, the seventh consecutive quarter of growth greater than 20 percent," said Nicholas McQuire, Research Director, Mobile Enterprise Strategies EMEA, IDC Research. "Our surveys show, German IT departments, like their peers across the globe, are currently investigating the value that BYOD and mobility brings to their firms. IT must therefore properly plan their organization's mobile strategy to deliver the performance, reliability, and services required for a successful BYOD program and most crucial, reliance on business-critical mobile applications."

"Over the years we have experienced a rapid increase in mobile device usage at our events, and therefore the demand for high-performance WLAN access. We searched a long time for a solution that could be easily used for events like fairs and congresses. With Xirrus, we found the perfect Wi-Fi solution to meet the requirements of a modern WLAN infrastructure for more than 10,000 concurrent users," said Klaus-Peter Doerr, Deutsche Telekom.

"Our German customers including Messe Frankfurt, SAP, University Osnabrück, and the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum expect their visitors to carry two to four smartphones, tablets and laptop devices and connect wirelessly. These organizations depend on high-bandwidth voice, video, and data going to and from mobile devices. Xirrus technology and know-how is field tested and proven," said Thomas Weiss, Vice President EMEA at Xirrus. "There are four main issues that Germany is struggling with -- Quality of Service (QoS), disappointing WiFi connectivity and reliability, interference liability, and privacy protection. We aim to make these non-issues."

More and more business is done in the cloud. Wireless isn't "nice to have" anymore -- it's a must. And high-performance wireless is a strategic advantage. Xirrus array-based solutions are unique. They draw from cellular tower design principles to provide wired-like reliability, increase user density and capacity, plus superior security. They perform under the most demanding conditions. And they have lower infrastructure requirements.

Willi Dütsch, Technical Director, EMEA at Xirrus said, "Conventional two-radio, omni-directional access points work fine in the home, but fail in the workplace due to performance, interference, and upgradability. The Xirrus reference architecture incorporates open standards, APIs, and 3rd party systems to deliver an extensible ecosystem. Xirrus wireless solutions provide a lower five year TCO than competitors with less equipment, maintenance, and power consumption."

In Germany, Xirrus has an expanding customer portfolio that includes -- but is not limited to -- large public entertainment and event venues, the enterprise market space, hospitality and conferences, primary and secondary education, higher education, healthcare, and government. With tens of thousands of custom solutions deployed worldwide, Xirrus is a wireless network solution provider making the world's most powerful, scalable, and trusted wireless solutions on the market today.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
