Rock-solid connectivity and WiFi coverage

What is our primary use case?

We use these switches for internal network distribution and local RR networks. We also use them for supplying voiceover IP. We use them for PoE+ depending on the configuration and what our customers needs. Sub-netting a visible part of the network.

Pros and Cons

  • "The ePoE+ is great."
  • "The documentation could be improved; it's quite basic."

What other advice do I have?

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of nine. Everything is stable so far. Over the past six years, I've only ever experienced one issue with a router. I had to replace it because the 5GHz SSID stopped working — nobody knows what happened. Still, I had a replacement up and running within two hours. If they improved their documentation, I would give Luxul a rating of ten.

Greatly simplifies troubleshooting; remote access to the router is a huge time saver

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for internal network distribution and for supplying voiceover IP. It depends on customer requirements but usually it's easier to set up voiceover IP, ePoE from the switch. The routers, such as XWR-3150, can support two different location access points, which is very convenient. It's a hard wire and customers do not have to use a mesh network which causes delays. Luxul can be used for 600 feet point to point. I'm the operator and owner and we are resellers and distributors of Luxul.

Pros and Cons

  • "Remote access to the router is a huge time saver."
  • "Documentation and access to it could be greatly improved."

What other advice do I have?

I have full access to the commercial grade Luxul product. They are extremely easy to program if you know what you're doing. I see Cisco's advantage if we're talking about the security and extra programming, but for the past six years I've used Luxul and all my customers, residential and commercial, are extremely happy. Luxul loses a point because of poor documentation, so I will rate this solution a nine out of 10.

Good pricing, but needs better UI and is only built for smaller-sized setups

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as AV over IP, which means you use the switch transport for audio-video. You use the encoder in code, with the video audio into the IP package, and then send them over the network switch and the switch you need to support a multicast.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is less expensive than other options."
  • "You do need to be an IT person in order to handle the initial setup. An AV person would struggle a bit."

What other advice do I have?

I use a 48 1G PoE switch. We sometimes sell the product to customers. In general, I would rate the solution at a six out of ten.
