LANCOM LX-6402

Highly efficient Wi-Fi 6 for complex environments

Wi-Fi radio networks belong to all areas of life today. Whether office environments, schools, universities, shopping centres, sports stadiums or event locations, no area can do without Wi-Fi. This Wi-Fi 6 access point offers low latency times and high throughput per client even with high terminal device density. External Wi-Fi antenna connectors cater for targeted coverage in complex environments. You can therefore trust the possibilities 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 (up- and downlink)
  • OFDMA for efficient Wi-Fi channel usage
  • Significantly longer battery life thanks to TWT
  • Support of the security standard WPA3
  • Includes 4 flexibly adjustable Omni-directional antennas / Alternative: Connection of optional sector 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

Ready for Wi-Fi 6!

More throughput, lower latency. What exactly do these key words behind the new WLAN standard Wi-Fi 6 signify?

 

How you can benefit from the new technology with the ax-enabled LANCOM devices is shown in our "Wi-Fi 6 Video" and on the Technology page.

Advantages

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

The LANCOM LX-6402 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-6402 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.

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-6402 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-6402 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.

Wi-Fi security standard WPA3

WPA3, the successor of WPA2, offers important upgrades and security features for small ("WPA3-Personal") and large networks ("WPA3-Enterprise").

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-6402 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).
