Lancom LX-6400

04 March 2020

Two new Wi-Fi 6 access points – the first in a range from Lancom – promise to deliver reduced latency and up to 25 per cent greater throughput per Wi-Fi client.

This, says the company, makes them suitable for high performance wireless LANs and networks with a high number of end devices.

The LX-6400 has eight 180-degree sector internal antennas; LX-6402 (pictured) has four external dual-band omni-directional antennas.

Each of the antennas has two IEEE 802.11ax radio modules for parallel operation at 2.4 and 5GHz and 4x4 multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) for uplink/downlink.

They work with bandwidths of 20, 40 and 80MHz (with four streams) and 160MHz (two streams).

Lancom says devices with two antennas that support 60MHz benefit from data rates to 2,400Mbps in the 5GHz band.

With parallel use, 802.11ax delivers 3,550Mbps.

Up to 16 non-overlapping channels are supported in the 5GHz band.
