Luxul announces new product line up for ISE 2019
Luxul, which is distributed in Australia by Avation, has announced a raft of new products that will be on display at the forthcoming Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2019 expo.
The new range includes managed Gigabit switches; the next generation of wireless controller technology; ‘Good, Better, Best’ dual-band wireless access points (WAPs), which includes a new device featuring advanced 4×4 MU-MIMO (802.11ac Wave 2) technology; and the new Easy Setup App.
Luxul’s new 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P and 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P managed Gigabit switches feature port auto-recovery and power scheduling to ensure system reliability and uptime. 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. For simple network expansion, 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.
The next-generation XWC-2000 wireless controller, which 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.
Three separate wireless AP solutions are set to merge into a “Good, Better, and Best” offering. For smaller networks where budgets are a concern, Luxul’s “Good” XAP-810 is a cost-effective wireless AP offering 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.
Finally, Luxul’s Easy Setup App allows integrators to install a Luxul wireless router and up to two wireless access points (APs) — at the same time — from the convenience of a mobile phone. The simple-to-use app not only speeds up installations but ensures the network infrastructure is installed with the appropriate settings and the latest firmware. The result is lower costs for integrators and their customers and a seamless wireless network that provides outstanding performance.
