July 30, 2008 -- Xirrus announced that it has been selected by IDG World Expo to be the official wireless provider for LinuxWorld 2008, taking place August 4 – 7 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.

"LinuxWorld Conference & Expo is the largest and most comprehensive event of business and technical leaders deploying Linux and open source solutions," comments Melinda Kendall, vice president and general manager, LinuxWorld Conference & Expo. "We selected Xirrus for the Wi-Fi network because, unlike traditional access points, the Xirrus Wi-Fi Array solves the user density issues plaguing traditional access point architectures. The Xirrus Wi-Fi Array is a testimony of the impact Linux is having on products around the world."

The Linux-based Xirrus Wi-Fi Array integrates 4, 8, or 16 802.11a/b/g/n radios with an onboard Gigabit switch, Wi-Fi controller, Wi-Fi firewall, dedicated Wi-Fi threat sensor and spectrum analyzer into a single device. Xirrus claims its platform delivers 4x the performance and coverage along with 75% less devices, cabling, switch ports, and installation time compared to competitive solutions available today.

"Providing the Wi-Fi network for this prestigious gathering of Linux engineers is an honor and demonstrates the strength of our Wi-Fi architecture in challenging environments with high user density and large coverage areas," remarks Dirk Gates, CEO at Xirrus. "Distributed Wi-Fi architectures, like the Xirrus Wi-Fi Array, are overtaking centralized architectures the same way Ethernet overtook ATM in the 1990s. The distributed intelligence and simplicity of our Wi-Fi Array allows us to quickly deploy a network with significantly fewer devices and provide exhibitors and attendees with the highest performance possible for voice, video, and data."
