Xirrus Selected as 2015 Red Herring Top 100 North America Winner

High-Performance Wi-Fi Provider Recognized as One of the Year's Most Innovative Private Technology Companies

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2015) - Xirrus, the leading provider of high-performance wireless networks, today announced it has been selected as a winner of the Red Herring Top 100 North America award. The Red Herring Top 100 North America recognizes the leading private companies from the region, celebrating their innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects the award winners from approximately 1,200 privately financed companies each year in the US and Canada. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Palo Alto Networks and eBay would change the way we live and work. 

"In 2015, selecting the top achievers was by no means a small feat," said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. "In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs had crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the North America winners. We believe Xirrus embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Xirrus should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong."

Today we live in an all-wireless world where the number of Wi-Fi connected devices is unprecedented and continues to grow at a rapid rate -- surpassing an average of three devices per user. This requires businesses to re-evaluate how they design their Wi-Fi networks. In addition, people expect to connect, everywhere on every device, to Wi-Fi networks that deliver optimal performance, security and reliability.

To support the needs of the market, Xirrus recently unveiled new products, a suite of network services and a new channel partner program to meet growing customer and partner demand in an industry that has recently seen much consolidation. Announced last month, Xirrus Xtreme Density (XD) Wi-Fi, delivers the highest density Wi-Fi access points on the market by supporting four times the users, while reducing the amount of equipment deployed by 75 percent and decreasing total cost of ownership by up to 50 percent when compared to competing products. TurboXpress allows administrators to configure every radio on the AP for high-speed 802.11ac operation, with the click of a mouse, providing an instant Wi-Fi performance boost of up to 6x. The new Xcellerate partner program offers new tools, deal registration, lead generation engine, sales portal, local resources and Xirrus University to support the recent additions to and global growth of the partner community.

"The Red Herring award is synonymous with growth, success and innovation. We are honored to receive recognition of our commitment to deliver high-performance, reliable Wi-Fi solutions that meet today's demanding environments," said Shane Buckley, CEO of Xirrus.
