Luxul announced that its new Epic Mesh wireless mesh solution is now available. Epic Mesh combines a mesh node that acts as a router and additional satellite nodes that require no wired link between them. Each node in the network can talk to all of the others, forming a mesh system for fast, reliable, truly wireless internet.
The Epic Mesh kit comes with two dual-purpose mesh nodes that can each serve as either a router or a satellite node. Integrators turn one of the two nodes into a router using the Luxul Easy Setup App on their iOS or Android smartphones. The app also adds additional nodes into a satellite node, which is placed around the residence to create a powerful wireless mesh. There is no need to run additional wires; integrators just plug the satellite node into an available outlet.
A triband (2×2, 2×2, 4×4) antenna array enables two 2×2 bands for client connectivity and a third 4×4 5-gigahertz dedicated backhaul channel to ensure strong connectivity back to the router, ensuring homeowners get fast internet anywhere in the home. Luxul leverages the most current technology available with Wave 2, utilizing MU-MIMO for this high-performance Wi-Fi mesh solution. It further meets the needs of integrators by providing eight SSIDs for networking flexibility. Additional satellite nodes can be incorporated as needed to accommodate installations of any size, and if one node falls offline, the others still have a path back to the router node, maintaining a connection to the rest of the network.
A firmware update will be required on the Epic Mesh to enable ProWatch.
