• Multiple radios = more bandwidth and user density
• Distributed to the edge = more efficient switching decisions
• Directional antennas = stronger signal strength and increased coverage
• Intelligence at the edge = more efficient QoS and VLAN-tagging
• Sectored RF patterns = better RF management and load balancing
• Security at the edge = better protection of all network traffic

Wi-Fi Arrays
Management System
The Xirrus Wi-Fi Array architecture displaces both overlay Wi-Fi offerings and switched
Ethernet to the desktop — ideal for offices, cubicles, conference rooms, auditoriums,
campuses, warehouses, remote users, emergency response, etc.
The Xirrus Management System (XMS) provides a powerful platform for central management
of a Xirrus Wi-Fi Array network. The XMS automatically discovers, configures, and monitors
an Array network, and can scale from single site to large scale, multi-site deployments.
The Wi-Fi Array integrates 4, 8, 12, 16 or 24 802.11abgn radios coupled to a high-gain directional antenna system into a single device along with an onboard multi-gigabit switch, Wi-Fi controller, firewall, dedicated
Wi-Fi threat sensor, and an embedded spectrum analyzer. The Wi-Fi Array provides more than enough bandwidth,
security, and control to replace switched Ethernet to the desktop as the primary network connection. The
Xirrus Wi-Fi Array delivers the most coverage, bandwidth, throughput, and support for more users on a per device
and per system basis that anything else available on the market today - resulting in a solution that uses
75% fewer devices, cabling, switch ports, power, space, and installation time compared with any other offering.
The Xirrus Wi-Fi Array delivers:
• 2X more range
• 4X more coverage
• 8X more bandwidth
• 75% fewer devices, cables, and switch ports

The Only Wi-Fi Power Play™
The XMS utilizes a client /server architecture. The central XMS server provides an aggregation point for
configuration and monitoring of all managed Arrays. The client provides the application interface to the user
and can be run across the network from any standard Java-enabled browser. The XMS is available as a server
appliance or as a stand-alone application for operation on a Windows server.
Key Features
• Automatic network discovery of Xirrus Wi-Fi Arrays “out-of-the-box”
• Policy-based configuration for easy set up of one or many Arrays
• Consolidated Dashboard view of Array, Radio, Station, Security, Performance, and Alarm status
• Hundreds of statistics on all aspects of Array and Station status and performance
• Centralized view and classification of rogue APs and wireless devices
• Aggregated view of alarms and syslogs for fault monitoring of the entire Array network
• Push software upgrades to one or more Arrays simultaneously
Power Options
Xirrus provides a variety of indoor covers to fit a variety of needs. The Indoor Snap-on
Cover provides concealment for Wi-Fi Arrays when you don’t want the Array’s face to be
visible, while the Protective Enclosures provide protection from impact and particles.
Xirrus offers a Power over Gigabit Ethernet (PoGE) DC system to provide a simple, low cost
means to remotely power Xirrus Arrays. The PoGE system delivers DC power in-line with the
Array’s Gigabit Ethernet data connection up to 100m over Category 5e or 6 cable.
Outdoor Enclosures
Rapid Deployment Kits
The protective outdoor enclosure is intended for outdoor applications where securing an
Array from harsh environments is required. This enclosure offers protection from rain,
heat, cold, direct sun, and wind while providing an additional layer of physical security.
The Xirrus Rapid Deployment Wi-Fi Kit is the only solution capable of supporting hundreds
of users over large coverage areas with such simplicity, making it the perfect solution for
meetings, conferences, expositions, disaster response, and command posts.
