The LANCOM LW-500 features two Wi-Fi radio modules, one offering IEEE 802.11ac Wave 2 and the other offering IEEE 802.11n. This provides fast Wi-Fi to 11n-clients in the 2.4-GHz frequency band and also the growing number of modern 11ac-enabled devices in the 5-GHz band.
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 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.
The white LANCOM LW-500 with integrated antennas has an unobtrusive and harmonious form. The round design similar to a smoke detector makes it ideal for unobtrusive use in hotel lobbies or conference rooms. It blends seamlessly into any environment.
Thanks to the power supply via power over Ethernet as per IEEE 802.3af, the LANCOM LW-500 operates at any PoE-powered Ethernet port. Alternatively, the access point operates with a power supply unit supplied with various plug adapters (EU, UK, US, AU).
The LANCOM LW-500 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.
The operation of the LANCOM LW-500 Access Point via wireless LAN Controller will follow in 2020. Alternatively, we would like to mention the possibility of management via the LANCOM Management Cloud.
