Highly efficient
Wi-Fi 6 for universal application purposes

Wi-Fi is omnipresent today, whether in office environments, schools, universities, shopping centres, sports stadiums or event locations. By using the LANCOM LX-6400 you get an excellent Wi-Fi experience. This Wi-Fi 6 access point offers low latency and high throughput per client even with high terminal device density. You can therefore trust the capabilities of High Efficiency Wireless – Made by LANCOM.

Technical features

  • Dual concurrent Wi-Fi – parallel operation at 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz with Wi-Fi 6 (IEEE 802.11ax)
  • 4x4 multi-user MIMO for simultaneous beam-steering for multiple clients in down- an uplink mode
  • OFDMA for efficient Wi-Fi channel usage
  • Significantly longer battery life thanks to TWT
  • Support of the security standard WPA3
  • Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1
  • 8 integrated 180° antennas
  • Automated operation via the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC)
  • Power supply optionally by Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3at) or power-supply unit (included)
  • 1x 2.5-Gigabit Ethernet PoE port ( IEEE 802.3at for up to 30 Watt), 1x Gigabit Ethernet port
  • WLAN controller support (including layer-3 tunneling)

Advantages

Dual concurrent Wi-Fi with an aggregated datarate of up to 3,550 Mbps

The LANCOM LX-6400 offers the Wi-Fi 6 standard (IEEE 802.11ax) for high-speed wireless LAN for clients in the 2.4- and 5-GHz bands. Wi-Fi 6 technology achieves transmission rates of up to 2.400 Mbps at 5 GHz and simultaneously up to 1.150 Mbps at 2.4 GHz.

4x4 Multi-User MIMO for downlinks and uplinks

Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO for short) simultaneously distributes all of the available spatial streams of the LANCOM LX-6400 between several different Wave 2 clients, rather than one after the other as was formerly the case. The available bandwidth is used efficiently and delays in the wireless network are substantially reduced. With Wi-Fi 6, MU-MIMO operates not only for the downlink but for the uplink as well.

Professional IoT support via BLE and USB

With the LANCOM LX-6400, you can easily dive into the world of the Internet-of-Things (IoT). Support for Bluetooth Low Energy (5.1) and USB 3.0 opens up many possibilities for you to communicate with modern WLAN sensors in devices or objects and use innovative applications such as asset tracking or digital signage with Wireless ePaper. In this way, you can easily operate solutions for digital room signage, electronic shelf labels, and other ePaper applications via the optionally available LANCOM Wireless ePaper USB. 

OFDMA – carpooling in the radio field

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) divides the frequency range of a Wi-Fi channel into a number of frequency blocks per unit of time. This creates subcarriers, which can be as narrow as just 2 MHz. Small data packets, so typical of IoT devices, no longer block entire 20-, 40- or even 80-MHz channels all by themselves. On the other hand, the Wi-Fi 6 access point is able to bundle multiple subcarriers. This is bit like carpooling, which stops the traffic being blocked by cars with just one occupant: Instead, the streets are freed up with just a few cars carrying several occupants.

160 MHz channel width

The access point can handle channel bandwidths of 20, 40, and 80 MHz (with 4 streams) and 160 MHz (with 2 streams). The channel width of 160 MHz enables a data throughput of up to 2.400 Mbps on appropriate terminals with two antennas that support the reception of two streams at 160 MHz in the 5 GHz frequency band.

Longer battery life thanks to TWT

Previously, smartphones, tablets and notebooks had to be ready to receive all the time so as not to miss their data packets. This can quickly use up battery charge. Wi-Fi 6 delivers a new technology to counteract power consumption on the client side. Target Wake Time, TWT for short, reduces consumption by allowing the access point and the client to negotiate exactly when the receiver should wake up to receive data packets.

Band steering

Optimized load balancing in your Wi-Fi by actively redirecting clients to the less congested and higher performance 5-GHz frequency band.

Operates via the LANCOM Management Cloud

The LANCOM LX-6400 offers unsurpassed user-friendliness: Managed through the LANCOM Management Cloud, it integrates into a holistic, automated network orchestration system based on software-defined networking technology.

Modern web interface for stand-alone operation

For stand-alone operation, the intuitive web interface of the new WEBconfig provides the best overview for comprehensive management and moni­toring. The device is set up in a few moments. Modern dashboards clearly display the current Wi-Fi status and enable the simple configuration of individual Wi-Fi networks (SSID) and the associated network keys. Other options include smart features such as the easy integration of new clients using QR codes.

Operation via a WLAN controller

The LANCOM LX-6400 offers the best possible flexibility in terms of operating mode. In addition to stand-alone operation or integration into the LANCOM Management Cloud, management can also be performed centrally via a WLAN controller.

LANCOM security for wireless networks

With numerous integrated security features such as IEEE 802.1X, this enterprise-class access point provides optimal security for networks. Administrators and employees alike benefit from professional security policies on the network.

Versatile power supply

Thanks to the power supply via power over Ethernet as per IEEE 802.3at, the LANCOM LX-6400 operates at any PoE-powered Ethernet port. Alternatively, the access point operates with a power supply unit.

Further information & news

Wi-Fi 6: More throughput, lower latency times

What exactly do these key words behind the new Wi-Fi standard Wi-Fi 6 signify? Especially in so-called "high-density environments", i.e. in areas with large numbers of Wi-Fi clients, Wi-Fi 6, alias IEEE 802.11ax, brings more stability and reliability to intensively used wireless LANs by making more efficient use of the available bandwidths and channels

How you can benefit from the technology with the ax-enabled LANCOM devices is shown in our Wi-Fi 6 video, on the technology page, and in the whitepaper:
