Xirrus Ranks Second To Cisco Systems in Independent Enterprise Access Point Market Share Per Dell’Oro Group
WiFiJedi: Last week, I told you that I was excited to share several exciting things happening for my employer, Xirrus, such as the fact that they were named as one of America’s fastest growing companies by Inc Magazine. Below is equally exciting fact that Xirrus was ranked second in independent enterprise access point revenue:
Thousand Oaks, Calif. – Xirrus®, the only Wi-Fi Power Play in the industry, announced today the company’s key industry rankings in the 2Q’10 Dell’Oro Group Wireless LAN report. Xirrus was ranked second overall next to Cisco SystemsÒ in Enterprise Independent Access Point revenue. Xirrus’ position in the Enterprise Independent Access Point sector of the market points to an increasing trend to move the intelligence and switching capacity of enterprise Wi-Fi Networks toward the network edge instead of in a centralized controller.
Dell’Oro Group publishes Wireless LAN quarterly reports with in-depth market-level and detailed vendor market share information. The reports include tables showing manufacturers’ revenue, units shipped, and average selling prices. Highlights from the 2Q’10 Dell’Oro Group Wireless LAN report include:
- Xirrus ranks #2 in Enterprise Independent Access Point revenue
- Xirrus ranks #3 in 802.11n Enterprise Access Point revenue
- Xirrus shipments were nearly 90 percent 802.11n (vs. an industry average < 50 percent)
- Xirrus shipments grew more than 40 percent quarter-over-quarter
As customers continue to demand higher performance and capacity from their Wi-Fi networks, they require that the distributed intelligence and capacity that made their wired networks highly effective be replicated in their Wi-Fi networks. The Xirrus platform does exactly that with a fully distributed, dense radio architecture, unmatched in the amount of processing power and bandwidth it can deliver on a per access point and system basis, compared to anything else available in the industry today.
“Independent Access Points have always been a big part of the Wi-Fi market and are once again on the rise as more intelligence and greater capacity is needed at the network edge to support the growing number of users, devices, and high bandwidth applications shifting from wired networks to Wi-Fi networks,” said Dirk Gates, founder and CEO of Xirrus. “Legacy centralized Wi-Fi controllers are prone to congestion, induce latency, and frequently become encryption bottlenecks that negatively impact the user quality of experience — especially for high speed 802.11n-based networks. History often repeats itself, and in this case, wireless intelligence at the edge is following the same course of the Ethernet switching market over a decade ago.”
Xirrus, Inc. is the only Wi-Fi Power Play in the industry and manufactures the high performance Wi-Fi Array – the only fully distributed dense radio Wi-Fi architecture available in the industry today. The innovative Xirrus architecture delivers unmatched RF innovation and wireless performance on a per access point and system-wide basis, yet requires fewer devices, switch ports, cabling, time, and effort to implement and maintain than traditional offerings – accelerating the Time-to-Value by 3X. Xirrus designs and manufactures its products in the USA and is Wi-Fi Alliance, VeriSign PCI, FIPS 140-2, and ISO 9001:2008 certified. For more information, please visit www.xirrus.com.
