Microsoft CMG Events & Studios has selected the high-performance and high-density Wi-Fi solution from Xirrus in order to ensure that thousands of its events participants’ll be able to enjoy quality wireless connections. According to Xirrus, the Redmond company will leverage the Wi-Fi Array at its largest events, including the PDC, Worldwide Partner Conferences, TechEd, etc. John O’Gara, group manager for Microsoft’s CMG Events & Studios, explained that Xirrus Wi-Fi Array was tailored to scenarios in which over 5,000 people in the same conference room needed to connect wirelessly. Microsoft ended up choosing Xirrus solutions after it test-drove the WiFi Array at the PDC. O’Gara noted that Xirrus succeeded where others before it had failed. With the Xirrus Wi-Fi Array, as many as six thousand people were able to take advantage of high-capacity, high-density wireless connections.
