Luxul now shipping its Apex XAP-1610 Wireless AP

The new Apex XAP-1610 AC3100 dual-band wireless access point (AP) is now shipping from Luxul.

This new AP features advanced 4x4 MU-MIMO (802.11ac Wave 2) technology for date rates up to 3167Mbps and support for up to 128 wireless devices.

“We are excited to announce the availability of our XAP-1610, which delivers the ultimate Wi-Fi experience across the entire home or facility,” said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. “However, when it comes to wireless APs, one size doesn't necessarily fit all installations, which is why we offer a complete range of solutions. Offering data rates from 1200Mbps to an astounding 3167Mbps, the XAP-810, XAP-1510, and XAP-1610 are capable of handling everything from studio apartments with a few wireless devices to office buildings with over a hundred.”

The range of APs are offered in a ‘good’, ‘better’, ‘best’ sequence. The ‘good’ version of the XAP-810 is a cost-effective wireless AP offering 802.11ac 2x2 dual-band technology for data rates up to 1200Mbps. 

If budgets can stretch further, the ‘better’ XAP-1510 features 802.11ac 3x3 dual-band technology for data rates up to 1900Mbps throughout the home. 

The ‘best’ solution is the XAP-1610 and is designed to enhance transmission and reception performance in addition to its high data rate. It also produces higher throughput when experiencing medium to weak signals within the effective range, as well as providing a more stable connection with usable throughput. 

The three versions of the APs can be used as standalone devices or as part of a multi-AP deployment. They also feature beamforming to allow more data to reach targeted devices. 

The trio are fully compatible with Luxul’s wireless controllers, making configuration easier and enables active roaming with Luxul’s Roam Assist technology for networks utilising more than one wireless AP.
