Xirrus announced that it has been selected for the sixth time by UBM TechWeb’s prestigious InteropNet to deliver high-density, high-performance wireless access for thousands of attendees’ smartphones, tablets, and other wireless devices at Interop Las Vegas and New York 2012 events. As in previous years, attendees and exhibitors will enjoy reliable wired-like connectivity, giving them the confidence that they will remain connected to work, family, and friends while attending these cutting-edge events.

“Interop has built a reputation of bringing together the best technology to build and demonstrate the interoperability of emerging technologies that are used by all exhibitors and attendees during the events,” said Lenny Heymann, Interop General Manager. "With Wi-Fi quickly becoming the primary connection to the data center and cloud, it is critical to deploy a reliable system that can handle the load of thousands of devices, with minimal equipment and costs. Xirrus has been a key component to the InteropNet network, and we are pleased to have them with us another year.”

“In past years, usage has grown from a few hundred 802.11bg users accessing email and casual web browsing to now having several thousand high bandwidth 802.11n devices, like tablets and smartphones, streaming multimedia applications," said Steven Wastie, CMO at Xirrus. “People expect to connect without wires. When we deliver rich-media streaming wirelessly, in super dense user environments like Interop, satisfaction rises. Wireless isn’t a ‘nice-to-have’ anymore. Done right, it’s a strategic IT infrastructure advantage that fuels organizations around the world. Those looking for a powerful, scalable, and trusted wireless solution will experience it first hand at Interop Las Vegas and New York.”

Interop will take place in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center from May 6-10, 2012 and in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, October 1-5, 2012. Xirrus will showcase its new XR-series product family, along with its Management System and Services during the event. Come learn for yourself why organizations that increasingly depend on wireless access to transform their business choose Xirrus.
