The new controller utilises Luxul's exclusive Roam Assist technology to ensure the active roaming of mobile client devices and simple deployment of up to 32 wireless access points (AP) for large installations.
In wireless networks that utilise more than one wireless access point, the XWC-2000's Roam Assist technology ensures that mobile devices are always connected to the best AP for the highest performance.

This allows users to move freely throughout their home without the frustration of intermittent whole-home audio and slow Wi-Fi speeds. The XWC-2000 delivers twice the capacity of its predecessor with support for up to 32 APs. Newly deployed APs are automatically added for plug-and-play installation, and the controller installs in minutes using a simple, intuitive setup wizard.
The XWC-2000 is compatible with these existing AP models: XAP-1610, XAP-1510, XAP-810, XAP-1240, and XAP-1440 — and future Luxul APs (excluding bridging APs) — allowing installers to mix and match to meet the needs of each project.
"Fast roaming doesn't improve network performance and many people don't even realise that a sticky device problem exists," said Mike Grubb, vice president of marketing at Luxul.
He adds, "With the introduction of our next-gen controller, we're educating dealers on the differences in performance between a fast roaming solution and active roaming. With Roam Assist, support for up to 32 APs, and an easy-to-use setup wizard that allows SSIDs to be pushed to all connected APs, the XWC-2000 stands out from the pack, bringing active roaming and installation simplicity to large networks."
