With 802.11ac Wave 2 becoming the Wi-Fi operational standard, large venues can take advantage of the performance improvements multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology brings to high density environments. Xirrus XA4 Wave 2 High Density Access Points (APs) provide high Wi-Fi capacity in locations such as convention centers, airports, train stations, and arenas. The plenum rated XA4 AP features external antennas for customization of Wi-Fi coverage in structures with high ceilings, long hallways, or wide open spaces, delivering the robust performance needed to support thousands of Wi-Fi devices at once.
REDUCE OVERALL COST OF OWNERSHIP
Just one High Density Wave 2 access point replaces up to 4 standard Wave 2 access points. Businesses save money by having less hardware, cabling, and power consumption. Fewer devices to manage also reduces the burden on IT staff.
DELIVER A CONNECTED EXPERIENCE EVERYWHERE
The XA4 AP delivers robust connectivity even in challenging locations with tall ceilings or long halls by directing radio frequency (RF) signals using directional external antennas. Xirrus technology supports constantly changing environments and always on connectivity for any kind of Wi-Fi device including low powered devices such as smartphones.
MONETIZE YOUR WI-FI SERVICE
Xirrus high capacity Wi-Fi includes intelligence to provide guest/visitor analytics. Location data allows venue operators to engage users with value added services such as wayfinding. Businesses can achieve meaningful user engagement, and deliver differentiated services with rich brand experience and targeted interaction.

FLEXIBLE CHOICES FOR GUEST CONNECTIVITY
The XA4 AP provides a range of connectivity options that enable simple, secure sign in for guests with EasyPass Access Services. Organizations can deliver simple guest access in multiple ways, including enforcing acceptable use policies, one-click access, allowing self-registration, and implementing sponsor workflow. Guests can alternatively connect using social media credentials without having to create a guest account every time at each venue. Wi-Fi access may be also controlled with a voucher code that can be integrated with point-of-sale systems.
HIGH PERFORMANCE IN CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENTS
With a single click, TurboXpress enables 5GHz operation on any radio, meaning the XA4 AP delivers up to 4 Wave 2 radios per AP for 4X the Wave 2 capacity of standard APs. Xirrus offers a choice of antennas to customize coverage in locations such as convention centers, arenas, warehouses, airports and train stations where high ceilings and wide open areas are common. XA4 APs are plenum-rated to provide flexibility to deploy where needed.
SECURE BYOD & IoT DEVICE ACCESS
Xirrus Wi-Fi solutions support all types of devices and operating systems. No captive portal is required to connect, simplifying the process for IoT devices that do not have browsers, such as Wi-Fi enabled lighting and climate controllers. Onboarding of new devices does not require an app, agent or certificate downloads.
