Xirrus Introduces XA4 Ultra High Density WiFi Solution for Large Public Venues

Xirrus, a provider of next generation, cloud-enabled WiFi networks, announced the XA4, a four-radio 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi solution that incorporates external antennas to optimize coverage and performance in large venues and open-space environments. Unlike other solutions that manage up to 500 connections, the XA4 manages up to one thousand simultaneous connections. The Xirrus XA4 provides adaptable, high-density WiFi for a superior user experience in locations such as convention centers, arenas, transportation hubs and warehouses. Xirrus high-density access points (APs) reduce the amount of equipment deployed by up to 75 percent and decrease total cost of ownership by up to 50 percent versus competitive solutions.

When venues have hundreds, thousands, or tens of thousands of attendees that expect to simultaneously connect to fast, hassle-free WiFi, they need a network solution designed to manage the massive capacity and dynamic usage spikes this creates. Reliable and high-performing WiFi has become a key differentiator for venues to deliver new and compelling mobile experiences that help them compete against other meeting and entertainment venues. The Xirrus XA4 Wave 2 solution provides the device density and bandwidth capacity to deliver reliable service in demanding environments and the antenna flexibility to tune coverage and quickly adapt to changing conditions. The external antennas on the XA4 enable IT to focus WiFi capacity on high-traffic areas where and when it is needed most.

Xirrus XA4 benefits include:
  • Ultra high density – Four radio AP supports up to 1,000 Wi-Fi connections simultaneously, which significantly reduces equipment, maintenance, and installation costs.
  • Customized coverage – External antennas provide the flexibility to fine-tune radio frequency coverage for high density areas and optimize spectrum usage.
  • Superior WiFi experience – Supports the full specification of 802.11ac Wave 2 WiFi at up to 3.47 Gbps data rates per radio (faster than any other solution on the market) and a total of 16 multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) streams per AP.
  • Adaptive architecture – Software-defined solution allows venues to grow and adapt over time as WiFi clients change. All four radios on the XA4 can operate at full 802.11ac Wave 2 speeds – four times what traditional APs offer.
  • Flexible Management – Cloud-based or on-premise Xirrus Management System (XMS) provides zero-touch provisioning, integrated EasyPass access control, and powerful analytics to maximize the utility of the WiFi network to the venue.
