Xirrus has introduced the Xtreme Density 2 (XD2) 802.11ac Wave 2 Wi-Fi solution. The new Xirrus XD2 access point (AP) includes two Wave 2 radios, which enables customers to deploy a Wi-Fi network that keeps up with the demand of their ever-changing environments, and guarantees the longest network lifespan possible.
