The new three-color displays for modern signage in black, white & red
Wireless ePaper Displays from LANCOM offer state-of-the-art digital signage for a wide range of applications. The Displays are controlled by an innovative wireless technology with extremely low power consumption. They provide flicker-free viewing from any angle. The contents are always visible under artificial lighting. The Wireless ePaper Displays are managed and monitored by the high-performance LANCOM Wireless ePaper Server that comes with an interface (API) for connecting to calendar-management and enterprise ressource management systems. With the optional display of black, white, and red, messages can be displayed with highlights.
Central, hyper-integrated network management is the new way to construct IT networks. Hyper-integrated means that the entire network, including all of the routers, switches and access points, is intelligently organized, optimized and controlled by a single controlling instance. Ideally this is supported by software-defined networking (SDN) technology.
Modern wireless infrastructures are ready for enhancement with future technologies. This access point offers fast 11ac Wave 1 Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi 5) and additional IoT readiness. The integrated USB port makes it easy to integrate supported IoT modules* into existing Wi-Fi infrastructures. Companies and brick-and-mortar retailers benefit from versatile applications as well as from a high-performance and extendable Wi-Fi network.
The routers in networks at different company sites are interconnected via secure data channels (virtual private networks, or VPN) in order to achieve secure and confidential communications. The VPN concept takes advantage of the wide availability of the Internet and adds the aspect of security. The results are maximum spatial flexibility and cost-optimized processes.
The German infrastructure manufacturer LANCOM is enhancing its LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) with a range of powerful new features. The update to the software-defined networking solution (SDN) now implements the Security & Compliance Dashboard shown for the first time at this year's it-sa. It gives companies a central overview of all security and compliance-related device information in their WAN, LAN and WLAN. Also premiering are the Alerting & Notifications feature, an Auto-Updater, and the optional bulk import of devices and locations. These new features are automatically available to LMC users without additional license fees.
The more complex a network is, the more complex is the implementation, monitoring and long-term assurance of company-wide security policies. This is now handled by the new Security and Compliance Dashboard in the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC). The dashboard verifies the configurations of all SDN-managed routers, switches, and WLAN access points, and modifies them if necessary. It monitors the licensing, firmware, and warranty status of every device. This prevents network security from being jeopardized by missed updates or obsolete hardware. Furthermore, the dashboard documents every access attempt from the outside and displays outgoing connections from the gateway. This makes it easier to detect any fraudulent or malicious activities in the network.
Business and government today are increasingly becoming networked, resulting in a greater susceptibility to virtual threats. Wherever sensitive data is transmitted or critical applications are being digitalized, the effects of attacks or failures can be devastating. Infrastructures therefore need to function reliably and remain trustworthy.
LANCOM Systems offers business customers secure, reliable and future-proof infrastructure solutions for all local and multi-site networks (WAN, LAN, WLAN). The traditional hardware business is combined with future topics like software-defined networking (SDN).
The LANCOM solutions for wireless networks (WLAN) and site connectivity (VPN routers and gateways) are developed and manufactured in Germany in accordance with the highest standards of data protection. They use an entirely proprietary operating system (LCOS), which is developed in a high-security environment and is optimally protected from manipulation. Freedom from backdoors is a key security feature of our products. The quality mark “IT Security Made in Germany” and certification by the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) confirm the trustworthiness and the outstanding level of security. LANCOM products stand for quality “Made in Germany”. They work reliably in customer networks for years on end. The product lines are characterized by long life cycles and universal management. Free security and functional updates provide sustainable investment protection and secure vital competitive advantage for our customers. Technical support and services are available from LANCOM's in-house Support Center.
LANCOM is a reliable partner characterized by long-term strategies, commitment to the channel, and consistency in its management team. The ultimate priorities for us at LANCOM are the trust of our customers and the security of their networks.
LANCOM Systems was formed in 2002 as a management buyout from the former ELSA AG and continued the products and brands of the former ELSA department “Communication Systems” (professional data communications). Since then, LANCOM Systems has been writing its very own success story. The management is in the hands of founder Ralf Koenzen and co-managing director Stefan Herrlich.
Today, around 350 employees contribute to the company's success at its headquarters in Würselen near Aachen, in Munich, and at other locations across Europe. With revenues of approximately €60 million in 2017 LANCOM is the leading European manufacturer of network infrastructure solutions for businesses and the public sector. The millions of LANCOM products in operation around the world are confirmation of customer trust and satisfaction. Marketing is exclusively indirect, with more than 7,500 distribution partners in Germany, Europe and increasingly around the world. These partners also make up the growing service network. Customers include small and medium-sized enterprises, government agencies, institutions, and major corporations from Germany, Europe and increasingly worldwide.
LANCOM is a wholly owned subsidiary of the German technology group Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG, headquartered in Munich.
