Single operation WLAN with up to 867 Mbps

The LANCOM IAP-821 is a powerful 11ac WLAN industrial access point. It provides 11n and 11ac clients optionally in the 2.4-GHz frequency band or 5-GHz band with 867 Mbps WLAN.


Robust full metal housing

Thanks to the resistant full metal housing the industrial access point convinces even in rough environments with a heavy dust occurrence with a high robustness. Thus, the device is optimally protected against external influences and ideally suits for WLAN applications in warehouses or covered event areas.

Extended temperature range

Thanks to an extended temperature range from -20 °C to +50 °C the device offers a reliable radio connection and a high WLAN availability even at extreme conditions.

Active Radio Control for dynamic radio-field optimization

The LANCOM IAP-821 supports the WLAN optimization concept LANCOM Active Radio Control. This intelligent combination of innovative features included with the LCOS operating system – such as Adaptive Noise Immunity, RF Optimization, and Client Steering – sustainably increases WLAN performance and supports administrators with professional tools for WLAN management.

Powerful WLAN diagnostics with Spectral Scan

The LANCOM IAP-821 uses Spectral Scan to search the surrounding radio field for sources of interference. This professional tool for efficient WLAN troubleshooting is a combination of hardware and software features. It identifies and graphically represents sources of interference, so helping the administrator to initiate countermeasures.

LANCOM security for wireless networks

With numerous integrated security features, such as IEEE 802.1X, the LANCOM IAP-821 provides optimal security for networks. As a result, employees and visitors all benefit from security policies in the network.

Support for zero-touch deployment

By supporting zero-touch deployment, the LANCOM IAP-821 is quickly and easily integrated and configured without having to access the configuration UI. In combination with a WLAN controller or the LANCOM Management Cloud the access point receives an appropriate configuration immediately after network authentication.

Secure integration of external users

In combination with the LANCOM Public Spot Option, the LANCOM IAP-821 is ideal for operating hotspots. Users benefits from a hotspot that is secure and easy-to-use, while hotspot operators can be sure that their own network remains separate from the hotspot.

Maximum future viability

LANCOM products are designed for a service life of several years and are equipped with hardware dimensioned for the future. Even reaching back to older product generations, updates to the LANCOM Operating System – LCOS – are available several times a year, free of charge and offering major features.
