Nord Anglia Education deploys Xirrus Wireless Arrays
Jan 18, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Xirrus, a provider of wireless networks, has announced that Nord Anglia Education has deployed Xirrus Wireless Arrays to deliver high capacity, BYOD connectivity across its family of 14 international schools throughout Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
The deployment enables teachers to deliver more lessons using online learning resources as well as satisfying the growing demand for wireless connectivity.
Nord Anglia Education has currently installed high performance Xirrus Wireless Arrays across its European schools, along with a Xirrus Management System and intends to do the same in Asia during 2013. The architecture of the Xirrus solution meets Nord Anglia Education's demand for capacity, providing four times the coverage and up to eight times the bandwidth and capacity of traditional access points. This is ideal for the high user density found in an educational environment, the company said.
Regional IT Director for Europe, Mr Bartlomeij Cezak said: "Many of our 10,000 students and 3,000 staff use their own laptops, tablets and smartphones whilst at school to access the growing volume of online educational tools. It is also becoming common practice for teachers to stream or download content in the classroom, leading to an increased demand for Wi-Fi coverage."
