Hanson Hotels Deploy Xirrus Wi-Fi to Ensure Superior Guest Experience

Hanson Chose Xirrus' Cloud-Based Wi-Fi Solution for In-Room and Property Wide Connectivity

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2015) - Xirrus, the leading provider of high-performance wireless networks, today announced that Hanson Enterprises has selected Xirrus Wi-Fi for seamless guest connectivity in their facilities. By deploying a Xirrus cloud-based Wi-Fi network, Hanson is now delivering unprecedented connectivity quality and speed for hotel guests within their lobbies, restaurants, outdoor facilities and almost 200 guest rooms throughout their property. 

"In the past, if a guest commented about the Wi-Fi, it was usually to complain about it," said David Hanson, a partner in Hanson Enterprises. "Since installing Xirrus, we haven't had any complaints from guests about the quality of the Wi-Fi, because the Wi-Fi really just works. That's exactly what we wanted and exactly what we achieved."

Today, a single hotel room can have five to six mobile devices or more connecting to the Wi-Fi network. During peak seasons, thousands of connections occur simultaneously. Xirrus Wi-Fi easily scales to support usage peaks, while providing insight into those usage patterns. The Xirrus Wi-Fi network provides enhanced visibility into ongoing network traffic and bandwidth-hungry applications providing administrators the information needed to optimize the network and allocate bandwidth as necessary to ensure the best guest experience.

Xirrus access points are the only APs in the world that can be programmed to simultaneously operate in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands or operate in only one dependent upon changing needs. Compared to the fixed 2.4GHz + 5GHz configuration of competitive APs, the software programmable Xirrus solution delivers flexibility and ensures a long life-span for the Hanson Wi-Fi network as clients continue to migrate to 5GHz over time.

"By choosing a Xirrus solution, Hanson Hotels not only provide a top-quality Wi-Fi experience for their guests, they also add a future-proof network that will adapt and keep pace with their needs for years to come," said Jillian Mansolf, Chief Marketing Officer, Xirrus. "Xirrus is the only Wi-Fi vendor on the market that not only delivers flexible and reliable Wi-Fi solutions that address the requirements of businesses today, but also keeps up with demands as requirements change over time.
