New College Swindon Goes All Wireless
Xirrus®, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, announced today that it has deployed an 802.11n wireless network at New College Swindon, one of the largest campuses in the UK for A Level and GSCE students. The new high-performance network has created the UK's first wireless-only annexe, and allows the school to run a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scheme. This enables students and staff to connect to the campus network from anywhere, at any time, using their own devices. The reliable, scalable solution also supports extensive Machine-to-Machine communication (M2M), and has resulted in substantial cost savings and improved efficiency, amongst other benefits.
