Feature Highlights

BLE API for the realization of innovative location-based services

Whether for indoor localization of patients in hospitals, evaluation of customer traffic in retail stores or asset tracking in the logistics sector: For all LANCOM access points with Bluetooth Low Energy Module (BLE), a new API interface (REST) is now available for the integration of location-based services. In cooperation with third-party providers, this enables the implementation of a wide range of location-based services (LBS) and innovative IoT applications.

LANCOM Wireless ePaper extension for your LX series access points

Now you can easily connect your existing LANCOM access points of the LX series to the Internet of Things (IoT), because with LCOS LX 5.30 your devices now support the extension module LANCOM Wireless ePaper USB Stick. With this your access points can easily be upgraded with Wireless ePaper functionality. An ideal solution for the subsequent implementation of Wireless ePaper applications such as digital room signage or wireless price labelling.

Cloud-managed Hotspot

Create a simple Wi-Fi hotspot with a few clicks – directly from the LMC. No additional gateway or WLAN controller with LANCOM Public Spot Option is required. Intuitive menus provide you with the opportunity to customize your hotspot welcome screen with your logo and corporate colors and integrate important information such as imprint and usage guidelines for your hotspot users. Afterwards you can assign the new hotspot to the respective location and it will be available to your visitors.
