The latest standard Wi-Fi 7, also known as IEEE 802.11be, offers higher data densities, greater channel widths, higher speeds, and innovative functions such as multi-link operation, multi-RU, and puncturing. Like Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7 uses the 6-GHz frequency band, which is reserved exclusively for wireless LAN, as well as the 2.4- and 5-GHz bands. This enables interference-free Wi-Fi operation with minimal latency and maximum data throughput, all of which are essential for real-time applications such as machine controls or virtual reality.

The two new Wi-Fi 7 access points LANCOM LX-7500 and LX-7300 were designed with the clear aim of making professional networks more secure and sustainable while at the same time easing the workload on administrators through high levels of automation:


  • Security Scan enables radio-field monitoring using a dedicated Scan Radio
  • Dual-PoE-in: Fully redundant power supply to the second switch for maximum reliability (LANCOM LX-7500)
  • Firmware engineered in Germany: Guaranteed freedom from backdoors, secure boot, maximum reliability, and future viability through regular feature and security updates
  • Integrated mounting protection against casual theft


  • LANCOM Sustainability Mode: Reduced energy consumption in the Wi-Fi through technological options and logical control
  • Energy monitoring for the entire network for transparency about energy consumption, savings, CO2 emissions, and CO2 reduction
  • Environmentally friendly packaging: Plastic-free packaging based on paper fibers—a contribution to uncomplicated and sorted disposal
  • Optimized scope of delivery: Avoiding waste packaging and electronic scrap as well as logistics-related CO2
  • Housing made from 100% recyclable materials without glued individual components


  • Cloud-managed Wi-Fi Zero-touch commissioning, auto-config, 24/7 monitoring & alerting, and Wi-Fi anomaly detection via the LANCOM Management Cloud for minimal manual effort
  • Radio Resource Management: Self-learning automation solution LANCOM Active Radio Control™ 2.0 for optimized Wi-Fi installations at the touch of a button—the Scan Radio allows constant radio-field monitoring
  • Saving energy without risk: Intelligent, cloud-based, dynamically adapting optimization solution LANCOM Active Power Control reduces the energy consumption of the Wi-Fi infrastructure while maintaining operational reliability
