Pervasive Wi-Fi access has become a utility like water, electricity and gas. Users expect fast, available Wi-Fi whenever they open their laptop or unlock their mobile device, demanding quick and reliable access to the applications they need at that instant.
With so many applications now deployed on mobile platforms, single sign-on (SSO) has become critical to ensure seamless user access. Xirrus has integrated our secure, high performance Wi-Fi with Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps to enable SSO for your organization, making it very easy to access both Wi-Fi and domain resources through a single log-in process. This simplifies security and can eliminate the need for onsite authentication, saving administrators time while lowering their costs.
For nearly 20 years, the US Federal Government has helped schools and libraries fund communications technology across the country. The E-rate funding cycle for 2017 officially kicked off July 1, 2016 with applications being accepted.
