THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - Xirrus, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, today announced that Gartner has positioned Xirrus in the "Visionaries" quadrant of their annual Magic Quadrant Wired and Wireless LAN Infrastructure (1) report, which was based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.

According to Gartner, "A vendor in the Visionaries quadrant has demonstrated the ability to increase the features in its offering to provide a unique and differentiated approach to the market. A Visionary will have innovated in one or more key area of access layer technologies (e.g., convergence, security, management or operational efficiency)."

"Legacy wireless networks are breaking under the strain of users, devices, and applications as users move away from tethered wired devices to wireless iPads, smartphones, and laptops," said Shane Buckley, CEO of Xirrus.
