A slew of new Luxul networking solutions at ISE 2019 will debut at stand [2-C50] at the RAI Amsterdam from Feb. 5-8.
Some “products never before seen in Europe will be unleashed and shipping,” according to the Luxul announcement, including managed Gigabit switches; the next generation of wireless controller technology; “good, better, best” dual-band wireless access points (AP), which includes a new device featuring advanced 4×4 MU-MIMO (802.11ac Wave 2) technology; and a new setup app.
“We are preparing the city of Amsterdam and ISE attendees for the disruption this storm will cause, which will include but is not limited to strong, reliable networks and world-class Wi-Fi with seamless roaming,” said Mike Grubb, VP of marketing at Luxul.
Luxul’s 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P and 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P managed Gigabit switches include port auto-recovery and power scheduling. Auto-recovery allows the switch to power cycle unresponsive PoE devices, and power scheduling allows switch PoE ports to be turned on or off on a schedule.
The AMS-1816P is equipped with two Gigabit RJ-45/SFP combo ports, while the XMS-1208P features two Gigabit RJ-45 uplink ports and two SFP ports. These features allow for high-speed interconnection between SFP-compatible Luxul switches and enable integrators to connect devices via Ethernet or fiber-optic cable.
XWC-2000 Wireless Controller Specs
The next-generation XWC-2000 wireless controller delivers twice the capacity of its predecessor with support for up to 32 APs, allowing each AP to be configured for a designated wireless channel in addition to supporting individual wireless transmit power adjustment.
Newly deployed APs are now automatically added for plug-and-play installation.
Luxul’s Roam Assist technology built into the wireless controller ensures that mobile devices are always connected to the best AP for the highest performance.
“Good, Better, Best” WAPs
Luxul’s “Good” XAP-810 wireless access point offers 802.11ac 2×2 dual-band technology and 5GHz beamforming for data rates up to 1200Mbps. The “Better” XAP-1510 features 802.11ac 3×3 dual-band technology and 2.4 and 5GHz beamforming for data rates up to 1900Mbps throughout a facility.
The “Best” Apex XAP-1610 AC3100 dual-band wireless access point (AP) features advanced 4×4 MU-MIMO (802.11ac Wave 2) technology and 2.4 and 5GHz beamforming for data rates up to 3167Mbps.
The AP is designed to enhance transmission and reception performance, producing higher throughput when experiencing medium to weak signals within the effective range, as well as providing a more stable connection with usable throughput.
Luxul’s Easy Setup App allows integrators to install a Luxul wireless router and up to two wireless access points at the same time from their mobile phones.
Luxul networking solutions will also be on display at AV EMEA distributor showcase at Stand 1-Q120.
