Brisbane Grammar School deploys Xirrus's Wireless Arrays
Dec 12, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Xirrus, a provider of wireless networks, has announced that Brisbane Grammar School in Queensland, Australia has deployed Xirrus's Wireless Arrays.
Michael Lowbridge, Director of ICT at the school, said: "We believe access to technology is of paramount importance in supporting one-to-one learning and wireless is a critical component from an infrastructure perspective. Our school grounds cover over 40 acres and we needed a robust solution that could provide seamless access to the internet, resources and technology across the site. It is pointless having a computer or tablet if you can't access resources when and where you need them."
Brisbane Grammar School has installed 53 Xirrus Wireless Arrays replacing 160 existing Cisco access points. The installation was fully operational within four days.
Sean Larner, VP of International Sales at Xirrus, said: "Ubiquitous and reliable Wi-Fi coverage is becoming a necessity in the education industry. Today's generation of students rely heavily on technology and will continue to do so. Establishments such as Brisbane Grammar School that are taking initiative will be well placed to support the growing use of mobile devices and deliver next generation experiences to their students."
