Luxul now shipping XWC-2000 Wireless Controller featuring Roam Assist technology
Luxul has announced it is shipping the next generation of its flagship XWC-1000 Wireless Controller, which utilises Luxul’s exclusive Roam Assist technology to ensure the active roaming of mobile client devices and simple deployment of up to 32 wireless access points for large installations.
Designed for wireless networks with more than one wireless access point, the XWC-2000 uses Roam Assist technology to ensure that mobile devices are always connected to the best access point for the highest performance, giving users the freedom to move around the house while maintaining network connections.
The newly updated generation of the controller delivers twice the capacity of its predecessor with support for up to 32 access points around the home.
For fast and simple installation, newly deployed access points are automatically added as plug-and-play and the controller installs in minutes using a simple and intuitive setup wizard.
The XWC-2000 is compatible with XAP-1610, XAP-1510, XAP-810, XAP-1240, and XAP-1440 access point models, as well as future Luxul access points (excluding bridging access points).
Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul said: “Fast roaming doesn’t improve network performance and many people don’t even realise that a sticky device problem exists. With the introduction of our next-gen controller, we’re educating dealers on the differences in performance between a fast roaming solution and active roaming.
“With Roam Assist, support for up to 32 access points, and an easy-to-use setup wizard that allows SSIDs to be pushed to all connected access points, the XWC-2000 stands out form the pack, bringing active roaming and installation simplicity to large networks.”
The XWC-2000 is now available for shipping to dealers.
