LANCOM LX-6500

Wi-Fi 6E – the VIP Wi-Fi experience

Be among the first to harness the full power of high-throughput, future-proof, low-interference Wi-Fi 6E. That means faster and continuously more stable Wi-Fi, higher capacity for cutting-edge, bandwidth-hungry applications, and lower latency. As a tri-band access point, the LANCOM LX-6500 simultaneously uses the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and now, for the first time, the 6 GHz frequency band reserved exclusively for WLAN applications. With the resulting doubling of the radio spectrum and thus aggregated data rates of up to 8.4 Gbit/s, as well as the exclusivity of the WLAN in the 6 GHz range, the LANCOM LX-6500 creates a true VIP Wi-Fi experience in highly frequented WLAN networks.

Highlights

Your fastest and most stable Wi-Fi yet with tri-band Wi-Fi 6E at up to 8,400 Mbps

Wi-Fi 6E (IEEE 802.11ax standard) means multi-gigabit speeds and reliable continuity of operation. The LANCOM LX-6500 opens up the newly released, interference-free 6 GHz frequency band for your network. It can thus integrate not only clients in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, but also modern end devices in the 6 GHz band. Better distribution of clients to the matching radio spectra and channels enables transmission rates of up to 4,800 Mbps in 6 GHz and, in parallel, up to 2,400 Mbps in 5 GHz and up to 1,150 Mbps in 2.4 GHz. The efficient use of all available WLAN frequency bands ensures consistently reliable and powerful Wi-Fi operation.

Interference-free use of the 6 GHz frequency band for modern and future applications

Take a seat in the VIP lounge in Wi-Fi: The LANCOM LX-6500 opens up an exclusive WLAN radio field free of interference with the first-time use of the 6 GHz frequency band. The added 480 MHz of radio spectrum, the 6 additional 80 MHz channels or 3 additional 160 MHz channels allow modern high-end devices to operate undisturbed in 6 GHz and relieve the older, crowded radio frequencies. As a Wi-Fi 6E access point, the LX-6500 handles channel widths of 20, 40, 80 MHz as well as 160 MHz with 4 streams, doubling the previously available WLAN spectrum. Especially business-critical, modern applications such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), 4K and 8K video streaming, as well as cloud and collaboration tools perform optimally with low latency times.

Advantages

4x4 multi-user MIMO in downlink and uplink for more capacity

Make the most of your available bandwidth and minimize delays in the radio field: Thanks to Wi-Fi 6E, effective multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO for short) can be used in the downlink as well as in the uplink. The LANCOM LX-6500 distributes its available spatial streams to several different clients…

Make the most of your available bandwidth and minimize delays in the radio field: Thanks to Wi-Fi 6E, effective multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO for short) can be used in the downlink as well as in the uplink. The LANCOM LX-6500 distributes its available spatial streams to several different clients simultaneously, instead of serving them one after the other as was previously the case. Applications with high data throughputs thus run more smoothly and reliably.

Carpooling in the radio field – OFDMA for more efficient data traffic

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) also aims to optimize the use of the radio field: The frequency range of a Wi-Fi channel is divided into several frequency blocks within a time unit, thus creating subchannels (subcarriers) with a narrow channel width of up to 2 MHz. This…

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) also aims to optimize the use of the radio field: The frequency range of a Wi-Fi channel is divided into several frequency blocks within a time unit, thus creating subchannels (subcarriers) with a narrow channel width of up to 2 MHz. This prevents small data packets, which among other things often originate from IoT devices, from taking up and blocking an entire channel of 20, 40 or even 80 MHz width. In addition to this, the LX-6500 bundles several subchannels and transports them together like a kind of carpool to enable the most free and fluid radio traffic possible.

Flexible operation via cloud, WEBconfig, or WLAN controller

Choose freely between operation via the LANCOM Management Cloud, WEBconfig, or a WLAN controller! In cloud operation, the LANCOM LX-6500 becomes part of a user-friendly, holistic, and automated network orchestration. Even in stand-alone operation, the LX-6500 offers fast configuration and…

Choose freely between operation via the LANCOM Management Cloud, WEBconfig, or a WLAN controller! In cloud operation, the LANCOM LX-6500 becomes part of a user-friendly, holistic, and automated network orchestration. Even in stand-alone operation, the LX-6500 offers fast configuration and comprehensive management and monitoring thanks to the intuitive, clear web interface of the new WEBconfig. As a third option, management can also take place centrally via a WLAN controller.

Higher battery runtimes of clients with TWT

Wi-Fi 6E counteracts the battery-consuming always-on reception of clients such as smartphones, tablets, or notebooks with Target Wake Time (TWT): The access point and client now negotiate when exactly the receiver will wake up to receive the data packets, instead of assuming that the devices are…

Wi-Fi 6E counteracts the battery-consuming always-on reception of clients such as smartphones, tablets, or notebooks with Target Wake Time (TWT): The access point and client now negotiate when exactly the receiver will wake up to receive the data packets, instead of assuming that the devices are always ready to receive. Power consumption is thus significantly reduced on the client side.

Flexible power supply via PoE or power supply unit

The LANCOM LX-6500 can be operated flexibly on any PoE-powered Ethernet port via Power over Ethernet (PoE) according to IEEE 802.3bt. For optimum operation, ideally a corresponding PoE switch (4PPoE, PoE++) is used. Alternatively, you can supply the access point with power via the optionally available power supply unit.

Professional IoT support via BLE and USB

With the LANCOM LX-6500, 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…
