The What: Luxul is shipping its new Epic 4 routers. The first in the Epic series, Epic 4 offers additional smart features for enhanced operation and serviceability. 

The What Else: The Epic 4 Series is designed to offer 600-plus Mbps WAN-to-LAN performance. The Epic 4 is available in two different form factors: the XBR-4500 is more traditional design with ports on the front, while the ABR-4500 is tailored for the AV installer with ports on the back, and user selectable blue/green LED lights on the front. Both Epic 4 models support multi-WAN (up to four) connections with load-balancing and auto-failover, and USB 3.0 for fast file sharing.

The Epic 4 Series also features additional capabilities, such as content filtering from Router Limits, giving users the ability to control and tailor their networks for increased productivity and safety; remote management from Domotz (coming in Q2) and Ihiji (forthcoming) to improve the uptime and performance of the network and the devices connected to it; and wireless controller functionality with Luxul “Roam Assist” technology, which provides seamless roaming across the entire network, when used with Luxul-brand WAPs.

The Bottom Line: The Epic 4 series is designed to help integrators deliver high performance, as well as enhanced support and services to customers, an attribute that can enable building recurring revenue.
