With LCOS 9.18 RU1 all LANCOM access points benefit from two new highlights of the Wi-Fi optimization concept LANCOM Active Radio Control. Activate the full potential of your wireless LAN!

Get to know more about LANCOM Active Radio Control!

Adaptive RF Optimization

Dynamic selection of the optimal WLAN channel

Improved WLAN throughput in the radio field as the access point dynamically selects the best quality WLAN channel in the event of interference.

Airtime Fairness

Improved utilization of the WLAN bandwidth

Better WLAN performance due to an efficient use of the available bandwidth thanks to a fair distribution of the WLAN transmission times among the active clients.


Further features

  • Wireless IDS - Detection of attacks or suspicious client behavior in the Wi-Fi infrastructure thanks to the constant surveillance of the radio field. If an event resembling an attack occurs at a defined frequency, a warning is triggered via e-mail, SYSLOG message, SNMP, or LANmonitor.
  • Adaptive Transmission Power - Ideal for professional backup scenarios in Wi-Fi environments: If an access points breaks down, the transmission power of the remaining access points increases automatically, so maintaining complete Wi-Fi coverage at all times.
  • Configurable data rates per SSID - The predefined data rates for the communication between access points and Wi-Fi clients can now be configured in detail – a real plus in flexibility. This way, for instance, data rates which cannot be used effectively due to environmental conditions can be excluded from operations.
  • Versatile validity of Public Spot access accounts - As of now, the booked bandwidth can be displayed on Public Spot vouchers. What’s more, voucher validity (time of expiry) can be set for shorter time periods (days, hours, minutes) – ideal for scenarios with a high customer frequency and short dwelling times.
  • Logging of DNS requests - DNS requests from clients can be sent to an external SYSLOG server for logging and evaluation purposes.
