Xirrus Becomes KCSOS / PEPPM "Awarded Vendor".
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Xirrus, Inc., the Wi-Fi "Power-Play" that delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, and throughput in the industry was recently awarded for their Wi-Fi Array product line on both the Kern County Superintendent of Schools (KCSOS) in California and the Pennsylvania Education Purchasing Program (PEPPM) for the 2009 multi-state contract. This contract, widely recognized in Pennsylvania, California, and a growing number of other states, helps school districts, libraries, county governments, and local purchase technology solutions at competitive pricing through a widely respected bidding program.
"Agencies that place orders through KCSOS / PEPPM will purchase products at the lowest available price, eliminate the bid process, and expediting procurement through the streamlined and time-saving process compared to soliciting three bids for every purchase," said Paul Kersse, Area Vice President for Xirrus. "They will benefit from the thorough investigation and selection process performed by KCSOS / PEPPM before designating 'awarded vendors' for each product category."

Xirrus, the only Wi-Fi "Power-Play", manufacturers the Wi-Fi Array[R] architecture that displaces both overlay Wi-Fi offerings and switched Ethernet to the desktop. The Wi-Fi Array integrates 4, 8, 12, 16, or 24 802.11abg+n radios coupled to a high-gain directional antenna system into a single device along with an onboard multi-gigabit switch, Wi-Fi controller, firewall, dedicated Wi-Fi threat sensor, and an embedded spectrum analyzer. The Wi-Fi Array provides more than enough bandwidth, security, and control to replace switched Ethernet to the desktop as the primary network connection. The Xirrus Wi-Fi Array delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, throughput, and user density on a per device and per system basis than anything else available on the market today - resulting in a solution that uses 75% fewer devices, cabling, switch ports, power, space, and installation time compared with any other offering.
Xirrus is a privately-held company headquartered in Thousand Oaks, California. For more information, please visit www.xirrus.com.
