Xirrus CEO Shane Buckley - Wireless Solutions ReviewNew technology is putting a large emphasis on the need for reliable and secure wireless network solutions (WNS). An enterprise providing smart phone and tables, or allowing for BYOD needs to know that they can provide at network that will handle the increased density on their WLAN.  With a new CEO and awareness of this need Xirrus is focusing on WLAN performance.

With that said Xirrus has put a focus on brining “wired-like” performance to their WLAN offering. This performance focus is a shift towards catering towards the customer and market needs. Delivering the convenience of wireless with the performance of wired. Read the entire article here and learn more about what Xirrus is working towards in the near future.
