Xirrus, Inc. Case Study

Southeast Arkansas Education Service Cooperative – United States

Introduction

This case study of Southeast Arkansas Education Service Cooperative is based on a July 2016 survey of Xirrus, Inc. customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Xirrus is pretty flawless.”

“We have a very dense conference room with heavy end user saturation. The HP products we had in place would constantly kick off end users and sometimes even cause the APs to reboot. We no longer have this issue. The 8 radio AP we have in this conference room has had over 300 simultaneous connections without any issues. I love this product. "
