Tuesday 12 September 2017 | 18:21 CET | News

Lancom Systems launched 1780EW-4G+, its first Lancom VPN router to support LTE Advanced (CAT6) and 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a technology upgrade the company is bringing to its line of mobile routers. The router reaches up to 300 Mbps downstream and 50 Mbps upstream in mobile mode and up to 867 Mbps in Wi-Fi mode. Like all current Lancom devices, the 1780EW-4G+ operates optionally as a standalone unit or highly automated by software-defined networking (SDN) from the Lancom Management Cloud.

Lancom said the router is suited for connecting mobile sites to the corporate network by means of VPN. The integrated Wi-Fi provides wireless access at the same time. Typical applications are for temporary conference rooms or construction sites. Alternatively, the Lancom 1780EW-4G+ operates with an external modem at its Gigabit Ethernet port. This combination offers fail-safe broadband access at retail stores, branch offices and home offices, including LTE backup.

The Wi-Fi radio module in the Lancom 1780EW-4G+ connects clients in the 2.4- or 5-GHz band with up to 867 Mbps (IEEE 802.11ac) or 300 Mbps (IEEE 802.11n). For optimal Wi-Fi operation, it supports the intelligent Wi-Fi optimisation concept Lancom Active Radio Control (ARC).

The Lancom 1780EW-4G+ is available now. The device provides 5 VPN channels as standard. An optional extra upgrades this to 25 channels. Optional web content filtering can be enabled for up to 100 users.
