AO Wireless Deploys Xirrus Arrays at SXSW for High-Density Wireless

Posted on Fri, Mar 08, 2013

Wi-Fi Arrays to Serve Densely-Packed Event Venues With 3,000 Attendees -- Each Toting, on Average, Two Mobile Devices -- and Will Allow Seamless Roaming

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 8, 2013) - Xirrus®, the leader in high-performance wireless networks, and Alpha Omega Wireless, an integrator of broadband wireless network technology and complete end-to-end wireless backhaul solutions, today announced that the South by Southwest (SXSW) conference, a premier showcase of original music, independent films, and emerging technologies, will use Xirrus Wi-Fi arrays to provide wireless coverage at SXSW 2013. IT staff for the event, to be held March 8-17 in Austin, Texas, will deploy Xirrus Arrays across mission-critical event venues to provide comprehensive reach and coverage for attendees. Event organizers predict that attendees will carry, on average, two mobile devices each, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

Working with Xirrus partner Alpha Omega Wireless, SXSW first deployed Xirrus Arrays for high-density venues at its Interactive Kickoff Party in 2012, supporting up to 2,000 mobile devices simultaneously and accommodating the surging demand for wireless social media communications at the event.

Xirrus SXSW

Xirrus Arrays use multiple AP's with sector antennas to distribute Wi-Fi signals, in much the same way as cellular antennas, allowing for maximum output and better RF channel control. Further simplifying the wireless architecture, Xirrus Arrays operate at both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, allowing SXSW site planners to map mobile devices with 802.11a 5GHz capability onto the 5GHz wavelengths, reducing demand for 802.11b/g 2.4GHz service. Virtually all second-generation mobile devices are designed for optimum operation at 5GHz.

Xirrus Wi-Fi Array

"Each Xirrus Array has its own integrated controller, eliminating the costs and architectural complexity of using centralized Wi-Fi controllers," said Joe Wargo, president of Alpha Omega Wireless, who managed the infrastructure site plan in tandem with SXSW's IT staff.

Creating Xirrus-based hotspots proved to be a routine, reliable approach to adding bandwidth virtually on demand. Xirrus Arrays house up to 16 AP's, simplifying network architecture by allowing a single Array to replace many discrete AP's. Now, with the ease of provisioning a series of Xirrus hotspots, IT staff for SXSW will be equipped to establish seamless roaming within major venues at the event, eliminating the need for attendees to manually reconnect at each event venue.

SXSW has expanded to blanket virtually the entire city of Austin with its presence. Event officials said that wireless mobility has become even more critical in ensuring a dynamic, media-rich experience for its staff, performers, and attendees. "SXSW has grown beyond all predictions, and wireless service must provide visitors the wired-like experience they enjoy today, but without the complexity and high cost," said Scott Wilcox, Director of Technology for SXSW.

"Scaling the infrastructure for an event with the hyper-growth of South By Southwest can create many unforeseeable demands," said Steven Wastie, VP of Marketing for Xirrus. "But in scaling the vital communications infrastructure to support one of the music industry's most heralded events, nothing can be left to chance. We gratefully acknowledge the trust that South By Southwest has placed in Alpha Omega Wireless and Xirrus."

Alpha Omega Wireless Uses 24GHz SAF Lumina Wireless at SXSW

Posted on Wed, Mar 14, 2012

Alpha Omega Wireless is providing carrier grade wireless backhaul at the 2012 SXSW event in Austin Texas. This backhaul is allowing SXSW to provide much needed bandwidth and internet gateway access to its major venues. For this solution Alpha Omega Wireless (“AO Wireless”) is utilizing the FCC's unlicensed wireless 24GHz frequency band for point to point wireless Ethernet bridge solutions. AO Wireless has chosen to use the SAF CFIP Lumina radio platform by SAF Tehnika, an Eastern European manufacture of point to point licensed microwave wireless radio systems.

SAF Lumina 24GHz SXSW

President Joe Wargo says, "The 24GHz wireless spectrum band is an unlicensed frequency that is heavily underutilized in the United States. Like licensed microwave, a point to point wireless Ethernet bridge in the 24GHz unlicensed wireless band provides carrier grade wireless backhaul. The 24GHz wireless backhaul is ideal for point to point wireless bridges up to 2+ miles. With the SAF Tehnika CFIP Lumnia we can provide carrier / enterprise grade connectivity up to 366Mbps Full Duplex (732Mbps aggregate throughput) in areas where there is a lot of wireless interference. SAF provides the best in breed quality radio systems. When dealing with such a mission critical network we trust only the best microwave radio products available.

The unlicensed wireless 5.8GHz band is becoming heavily saturated and it's becoming difficult to deploy wireless Ethernet bridge links in many areas. Because the 24GHz band is unlicensed we can deploy wireless backhaul links in a day without the need to wait for a FCC license.”
