Wi-Fi 6 for LANCOM access points of the LX series

Wi-Fi is everywhere these days—the number of users is increasing just as rapidly as the potential applications. Wi-Fi 6 provides not only more speed, but above all a real increase in average throughput per Wi-Fi client. Thanks to a more efficient use of the available bandwidths and channels, Wi-Fi 6 brings more stability and reliability to intensively used wireless LANs.

Auto Updater – always up-to-date

LCOS LX-based devices can search for new software updates, and download and install them without any user interaction. You can choose whether to install only security updates, release updates, or all updates automatically. If automatic updates are not desired, the feature can still be used to check for new updates, which can then be installed with a single click.

Band steering – full bandwidth through intelligent client steering

Band steering offers optimized load balancing across the Wi-Fi by actively redirecting clients to the less congested and higher performance 5-GHz frequency band. Depending on the capabilities of the Wi-Fi client, the access point steers it to the best available frequency band—almost seamlessly thanks to the modern IEEE 802.11v technology.

Fast Wi-Fi roaming

Fast roaming as per the WLAN standard IEEE 802.11r allows clients to roam quickly between access points for an optimal wireless LAN user experience.

In preperation: operation via WLC

Support for operation via a wireless LAN Controller (WLC) is planned for an upcoming LCOS LX version, which is expected to be available from Q2/2020.
