The Xirrus Management System (XMS) is a cloud service for handling wireless networks of all sizes. The service is part of the Xirrus Cloud Services suite, which aims to reliably deploy wireless networks and reduce the overhead, especially in geographically distributed installations such as large-scale or large campus environments. As the Xirrus Cloud Services were designed as SaaS (Software as a Service) offerings and hosted by Xirrus, the customer would have no operational responsibilities to maintain the software.
Xirrus’ highly scalable, multi-tenant platform enables monitoring and management of Xirrus wireless networks and wired networks. The customizable dashboard provides real-time visibility into network and device activity. A drill-down function allows a detailed troubleshooting of user problems. Profile-based configuration is designed to make it easy to create and implement policies for the entire wireless network. The reporting would provide important network data for planning and compliance monitoring.
XMS Cloud works with Xirrus Mobilize, a free-to-charge, cloud-based provisioning service that accelerates the deployment of Xirrus wireless networks. According to Xirrus, the ease of deployment ensures that products can be deployed remotely without the need for onsite IT support. The implementation of wireless networks would be plug and play. The service works independently or integrated in the XMS cloud.
XMS cloud is licensed for usage. The service is hosted in the cloud and, according to Xirrus, is accessible from anywhere with any web browser.

Europol is to investigate
Swift is a Belgian company that operates a system for international financial transactions. Swift is the abbreviation for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication. In the wake of the whistleblower affair was announced in early September that the NSA also monitors Swift.
Parliament called on EU countries to approve an investigation by the Europol Cybercrime Center. Parliament also called for “a full on-site technical investigation into the allegations” alleging that the US authorities had unauthorized access to the Swift servers. Access to private payment data by EU citizens is strictly regulated and limited by the EU-US Terrorist FinanceTracking Program (TFTP), which entered into force on 1 August 2010.
The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs, as part of its special investigation on mass surveillance of EU citizens, will continue to investigate the allegations, according to the resolution.
