Luxul has announced its technology lineup for CEDIA Expo 2019, taking place Sept. 12-14 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. In Legrand | AV’s booth 905, Luxul will exhibit a new wireless mesh solution and a cloud remote monitoring and management system, self-healing managed Gigabit switches, the next generation of wireless controller technology, “good, better, best” dual-band wireless access points (AP) and dealer tools designed to speed up installations.
Making its debut at CEDIA Expo 2019, Luxul’s Epic Mesh kit comes with two dual-purpose mesh nodes that can each serve as either a router or satellite. Integrators turn one of the two nodes into a router in under two minutes using the Luxul Easy Setup App. The other becomes the satellite node, which is placed around the residence to create a wireless mesh. There is no need to run additional wires; integrators just plug the satellite node into an available outlet. An innovative antenna design and 4x2x2 antenna array enable two 2×2 client access radios and a 4×4 5 GHz dedicated backhaul channel to ensure strong connectivity back to the router for the delivery of high-speed internet anywhere in the home. Additional satellite nodes can be incorporated as needed to accommodate installations of any size.
Highlighted managed Gigabit switches featuring Self-Healing capability will include the 18-port/16 PoE+ L2/L3 AMS-1816P and 12-port/8 PoE+ XMS-1208P. The units empower integrators with two advanced features: auto-recovery and power scheduling. With auto-recovery, devices connected to the switches by PoE are automatically rebooted when they fall offline or become unresponsive. With power scheduling, integrators can trigger the switches to power PoE-connected devices on or off based on any schedule they create within the switch interface.
Also on display will be the next-generation XWC-2000 wireless controller, which delivers twice the capacity of its predecessor with support for up to 32 APs for large-scale projects. Newly deployed APs are automatically added for plug-and-play installation, and Luxul’s Roam Assist technology for active roaming is built into the wireless controller, ensuring mobile devices are always connected to the best AP for the highest performance.
Luxul will also showcase a “Good, Better, and Best” offering of wireless Apex APs. 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 5 GHz beamforming for data rates up to 1200 Mbps. 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” XAP-1610 — Luxul’s fastest ever — features advanced Wave 2 4×4 MU-MIMO 802.11ac technology and 2.4 and 5 GHz beamforming for data rates up to 3167 Mbps.
Highlighted dealer tools will include Luxul’s Easy Setup App and the company’s free network design service (Customer Assurance Program, or CAP). Available as a free download from the Apple and Android stores, Luxul’s Easy Setup App allows integrators to install a Luxul wireless router and up to two wireless APs at the same time, in under two minutes, from the convenience of a mobile phone. Luxul’s CAP provides dealers with certified wired and wireless network designs, which are guaranteed to deliver Wi-Fi networks that meet their customers’ reliability and performance requirements.
Luxul is here.
