Amac Partners With Xirrus to Deliver High Performance Wireless Networks to Education and Business Customers

UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Jul 16, 2013) - Xirrus®, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, today announced that it has appointed Amac, an Apple Premium Reseller, to sell its portfolio of wireless access points, arrays and cloud services throughout the Netherlands. This partnership will give customers access to high performance wireless products to service the growing deployment of smart devices and need for Wi-Fi networks in education and business.

"There has been an explosion in demand for wireless across the Netherlands, with schools and universities in particular embracing iPads as vital parts of the teaching tool set," said Sean Larner, VP International at Xirrus. "We identified Amac as a partner with strong expertise in wireless infrastructure and bring your own device (BYOD) management to meet this growing demand in the region.

"With its 22 consumer Apple stores and Amac Pro department, Amac has extensive experience in advising and supporting organisations that work with Mac, iPad or iPhone devices, so represented an ideal fit to support our growth. The fact that staff and students can visit any Amac store and receive training and guidance on how to use their iPad device was a major plus for us. This level of direct personal support is vital for the success of any BYOD scheme," added Larner.

"We're seeing considerable demand for the use of iPads within schools and universities across the Netherlands, and these need to be managed via a robust and scalable wireless network," said Bas Dorst, Sales Manager, Amac. "Xirrus has a solid reputation for delivering high performance wireless networks in the education sector, with its simple management software and seamless network integration into any campus building.

"Xirrus Application Control, Bonjour Director and Zero-Touch deployment cloud services are examples of Xirrus innovations that help power BYOD environments. Using Application Control, organisations can provide a secure, seamless experience to users by prioritising critical applications, while the Bonjour Director gateway enables Apple iOS devices to communicate between each other across multiple IP network boundaries typically found in larger network deployments.

"We're also seeing growth in demand for Wi-Fi within Government and healthcare organisations, with paperless meetings and the delivery of electronic patient medical records key drivers," added Dorst. "Our partnership with Xirrus puts us in the best possible position to target these big market opportunities."
