Wireless networking solutions provider Cambium Networks has acquired Xirrus Wi-Fi products and cloud services from Riverbed Technology.
Through this acquisition, Cambium Networks will gain access to Xirrus’ portfolio of enterprise Wi-Fi access points and subscription services. Xirrus’ portfolio would enhance and accelerate Cambium’s existing Network Service Application (NSA) capabilities and is expected to bring a set of new services and customer experience to our customers.
“Wireless is the technology of choice for connecting people, places and things,” said Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks. “We are very pleased to fortify the Cambium Networks enterprise team with the talented Xirrus team.”
“The Xirrus team is excited to be joining an organization dedicated and committed to wireless networking. Xirrus’ extensive enterprise experience and advance development will substantially contribute to the delivery of differentiated solutions by Cambium Networks as enterprises and service providers globally transition from 802.11ac to 802.11ax, otherwise known as Wi-Fi 6,” said Bruce Miller, Cambium Networks’ new Vice President, Enterprise Marketing, formerly with Xirrus and Riverbed Technology.
The Xirrus portfolio expands and enhances the existing Cambium Networks Wi-Fi portfolio to offer distributed enterprise, education, government, hospitality, and public venue customers, in addition to managed service providers, a choice of technologies in Cambium Networks’ wireless fabric portfolio of connectivity solutions.
