"The Xirrus product integrated very well into our existing concessions network and we immediately saw the improvement in our ability to perform PCI transactions…a reliable, easy to manage network."
--John Rinehart, Senior Vice President of Business Operations for Maloof Sports & Entertainment (Arco Arena)
Sporting events and concerts aren’t just about selling tickets anymore. Whether they are streaming live video directly from the concert floor, checking player stats or posting comments to their Facebook page, live event customers and fans have come to expect reliable, high performance wireless connectivity at major entertainment venues. The availability of onsite Wi-Fi access at sports events and concerts has become an absolute necessity.
The need to simultaneously support large numbers of wireless users and mobile devices at sports events and concerts requires a high-performance, highly resilient Wi-Fi solution that can easily scale without causing performance bottlenecks, which is what Xirrus exceeds at.
When it comes to providing flawless wireless networking to audiences and event attendees, no company does it better than Xirrus. Our Arrays deliver a level of reliability and security as good or better than wired. Compared to conventional AP technology, our Arrays integrate 2 to 16 radios, high-gain directional antennas, onboard multi-gigabit switch, controller, firewall, threat sensor and a spectrum analyzer. This architecture provides 4X the coverage and up to 8X the bandwidth and capacity. That means you can service high user density and data throughput locations like stadiums, concert halls, and event centers. And, by minimizing the Arrays and infrastructure you need while maximizing coverage, setting up networks for temporary events and expansive event structures is easier and more cost-effective.
When the stadium owners want to provide high performance Wi-Fi services to their customers and fans, they call on Xirrus. Xirrus Arrays are installed to provide advanced wireless services including video streaming, point-of-sale and internet access for the stadium suites club and VIP seating sections, delivering high performance Wi-Fi coverage to approximately 12,000 seats. Competing proposals from other Wi-Fi vendors call for hundreds of thin AP access points to provide a comparable level of coverage and performance, making Xirrus the most efficient and cost-effective Wi-Fi solution by far.
