For the extension of Wi-Fi coverage to outdoor areas, Luxul today announced a new dual-band AC1200 outdoor wireless access point. Compatible with the company’s XWC-1000 wireless controller, the IP-65-rated XAP-1440 employs multi-stream 802.11ac technology to deliver high data rates up to 1200 Mbps. For smaller networks where budgets are a concern, Luxul has also introduced the XAP-810, something they are pitching as a “cost-effective” access point for excellent coverage indoors.
Both the XAP-1440 and XAP-810 can be easily set up on a network with Luxul’s XWC-1000 wireless controller, taking advantage of the controller’s Roam Assist feature to provide a continued, seamless roaming experience for users.
The new Luxul XAP-1440 and XAP-810 access points ship mid-November. Here are the more detailed specs.
