Luxul has announced the unveiling of a variety of new products for the connected home at CEDIA Expo 2018. In booth #4301, Luxul will debut new wireless products, next-generation members of its family of L2/L3 managed switches, and other solution-based innovations. Additionally, the company will be displaying its full lineup of products and demoing Router Limits and Domotz interfaces.
For AV-over-IP video distribution systems, Luxul L2/L3 managed switches on display at CEDIA Expo 2018 will include the 26-port Gigabit AMS-2600; 26-port/24 PoE+ stackable AMS-4424P; 52-port Gigabit PoE+ XMS-5248P; and 52-port stackable Gigabit PoE+ XMS-7048P. For network expansion, the stackable AMS-4424P and XMS-7048P each offer two 10 Gigabit SFP+ ports for scalability and management of up to 16 switches, for a total of 384 ports and 800 ports, respectively. In addition, the AMS-2600 includes two Gigabit RJ-45/SFP combo ports, while the XMS-5248P features two Gigabit SFP ports. The PoE+ ports of the AMS-4424P, XMS-5248P, and XMS-7048P can be used to expand networks utilizing PoE-enabled devices, such as touch panels, VoIP devices, IP cameras, and wireless access points.
Highlighted Luxul routers will include the company's Epic Series, which consists of the wired multi-WAN Epic 4, the wired Gigabit dual-WAN Epic 5, and the dual-band wireless AC3100 Epic 3. The Epic Series features built-in Domotz technology, a feature that saves time and money for integrators by allowing them to remotely manage and support their clients' networks, including all connected devices, eliminating the need for truck rolls and service calls. The routers also feature Router Limits content management, which puts homeowners in control of their internet experience. Using an interface that can be accessed from anywhere, clients can choose which devices can access the web, what websites are OK, and the days and times the internet should be available to the users.
