Luxul today introduced the XWC-2000, the next generation of its wireless controller technology. The new controller uses Luxul’s Roam Assist technology to ensure the seamless roaming of mobile client devices and simple deployment of up to 32 wireless access points (AP) for large installations. The XWC-2000 will be shown at CEDIA Expo 2018 Sept. 6-8 at Booth 4301in the San Diego Convention Center, with an expected release by the end of the year.
In wireless networks that utilize more than one wireless AP, Luxul’s Roam Assist technology — built in to the XWC-2000 — ensures that mobile devices are always connected to the best AP for the highest performance. This allows users to move freely throughout their home or business without the frustration of choppy video calls, intermittent whole-home audio and slow Wi-Fi speeds.
The XWC-2000 delivers twice the capacity of its predecessor with support for up to 32 APs, allowing each AP to be configured for a designated wireless channel, in addition to supporting individual wireless transmit power adjustment. Newly deployed APs are now automatically added for plug-and-play installation. The controller itself installs in minutes, using a simple, intuitive setup wizard. The XWC-2000 is compatible with current and future Luxul APs — excluding bridging APs and range extenders — enabling installers to mix and match to meet the needs of each project.
Here are the details.
