  • TopRanked Vermont Law School Selects Xirrus 80211n FutureProof Technology
  • Xirrus Delivers Seamless 802.11n Wi-Fi Connectivity to Support Leading Law Curriculum

    THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Xirrus, the only Wi-Fi Power Play in the industry, announced today the deployment of Xirrus high performance Wi-Fi Arrays across the Vermont Law School (VLS) located in the historic village of South Royalton, Vermont. Established in 1972, the VLS is one of a handful of fully accredited independent, private law schools in the United States. Vermont Law School has the nation's top-ranked environmental law program, as well as premier programs ininternational law, dispute resolution, clinical law, public interest law and general practice law. VLS also has been named one of the best law schools for women. In keeping pace with advancing technology, the Vermont Law School selected Xirrus future-proof technology to deliver seamless 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity to support their leading law curriculum.

    “When selecting a vendor to replace our legacy wireless system and upgrade our school to the latest in 802.11n technology, selecting a future-proof wireless solution that would achieve complete coverage across our entire 19 building campus was our top priority”

    When selecting a vendor to replace our legacy wireless system and upgrade our school to the latest in 802.11n technology, selecting a future-proof wireless solution that would achieve complete coverage across our entire 19 building campus was our top priority, said Nick Milburn, Network Administrator for the Vermont Law School. Our previous infrastructure was a hot spot technology with shaky connections that provided limited access for students and faculty. With the influx of wireless devices onto our campus, we were quickly reaching our licensing limit with our previous solution. By upgrading to Xirrus, we are no longer held to the restrictive licensing limitations required by other wireless products. We now have a fully managed solution that covers our campus from corner to corner, allowing students and faculty to easily roam from one significant area of the school to another, delivering far greater coverage and density.

    Nick further emphasized his satisfaction with Xirrus by saying, Our wireless strategy is to provide students and faculty the ability to access all of their data regardless of where they are on the campus. By implementing Xirrus we have achieved far greater security to protect both the user and our sensitivity network resources. Because we dont have complete control of every wireless device that comes onto our campus, having the integral security aspects at the edge of our network was an added benefit for selecting the Xirrus Wi-Fi Array technology.

    Nick concluded by saying, Implementing Xirrus was an integral component in our proof of concept - allowing decision makers to see that wireless can be a stable technology. With Xirrus, we can stay ahead of the advancing technology and keep pace as wireless usage continues to expand across our campus.
