Leading International Law Firm Chooses Xirrus High-Performance for Worldwide Rollout


Xirrus Selected for Cost Savings, Easy Deployment and Central Management System

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – May 8, 2012 – – Xirrus®, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, today announced that Paul Hastings, a leading international law firm, has selected Xirrus as its exclusive wireless solution provider for its 18 offices worldwide. Due to the influx of iPads and smartphones and exploding mobile application usage, Paul Hastings recognized the demand for reliable, high-performance wireless access in its offices for both employees and clients including supporting a BYOD strategy.

"As a leading international law firm, we have the global reach and extensive capabilities to provide personalized service wherever and whatever our clients' diverse needs may be," said Searl Tate, director of engineering, Paul Hastings. "As the NUMBER of devices connecting to our existing wireless infrastructure continued to rise, we realized it was time to implement a high-performance wireless solution. What really sold us was the speed to implement the Arrays and the Xirrus Management Solution that allows us to manage our entire network from one central point. With 18 offices across Asia, Europe, and the U.S., that is no small feat."

The Xirrus Management System (XMS) automatically discovers, configures, and monitors a Wireless Array network, and can scale to accommodate single-site to large scale, multi-site deployments. Network administrators choose from a range of installation options including on-premises software, pre-configured appliances, or a cloud-based option – providing the flexibility needed for fast implementation and low costs to best fit operating requirements.

Paul Hastings deployed fifty Xirrus Wireless Arrays which is less than half the equipment that would need to be deployed with an alternative solution. Paul Hastings supports about 1,000 unique devices per week. The Xirrus worldwide rollout began in the Los Angeles office, followed by deployments in New York, Paris and London to date.

"The Financial Times recently named Paul Hastings as one of the most innovative law firms in the U.S. in its 'Innovative Lawyers 2011' report," said Bruce Miller, vice president, product marketing, Xirrus. "This doesn't surprise us. Paul Hastings has managed to stay ahead of the curve knowing that mobile devices such as iPads, smart phones and laptops will only increase in the work force and that staff and clients expect flawless wireless service. We look forward to helping them achieve that objective."
