Luxul, a manufacturer of IP networking solutions for AV integrators, has today (August 31) unveiled its new Apex XAP-1610 AC3100 dual-band wireless access point (AP).
According to the firm, the new model provides "exceptionally powerful and resilient" wireless performance.
Ideal for residential or light commercial installations, the Apex XAP-1610 is designed to enhance transmission and reception performance, producing higher throughput when experiencing medium to weak signals within the effective range, as well as providing a more stable connection with usable throughput. The result is a strong Wi-Fi experience across the entire home or facility, enabling internet connectivity, AV streaming, and access to control and automation systems.
The Apex XAP-1610 offers support for up to 128 wireless devices. With its Wave 2 technology, the AP delivers data rates up to 3167 Mbps, is powered via PoE for simple installation, and features seamless roaming with Roam Assist™ technology when used with Luxul's wireless controllers.
"The new Apex XAP-1610 continues the Luxul tradition of delivering exceptional wireless performance at a reasonable cost," said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul. "In addition to providing customers with a strong Wi-Fi connection, the AP's improved effectiveness of range and more stable connection with usable throughput allow integrators to provide an improved customer Wi-Fi experience. And when combined with our wireless controller's Roam Assist technology, Apex XAP-1610 installations benefit from seamless roaming."
The XAP-1610 will be on display in Booth 4301 at CEDIA Expo 2018, taking place September 6-8 at the San Diego Convention Center.
