LED indicators

Information type Color Status Description
Default Status after Power-on Green Steady on

AP is powered on and the software is not started yet

Software Startup Status Green Steady on after blinking once After the system is reset and starts uploading the software, the indicator blinks green once. Until the software is uploaded and started, the indicator remains steady green
Running Status Green Blinking once every 2 seconds (0.5 Hz)
  • The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and STAs are associated with the AP
  • The system enters the Uboot CLI
Blinking once every 5 seconds (0.2 Hz) The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and no STA is associated with the AP. The system is in low power consumption state (no data is being transmitted and the EEE function takes effect)
Alarm Green Blinking once every 0.25 seconds (4 Hz)
  • The software is being upgraded
  • After the software is uploaded and started, the AP, working in Fit AP mode, enters the registration state and has not registered successfully with the AC yet
  • The AP registration fails (CAPWAP link is disconnected)
Fault Red Steady on

A fault that affects services has occurred. The fault cannot be automatically rectified and must be rectified manually (the fault can be a DRAM detection failure or system software loading failure)

Blinking once every 0.25 seconds (4 Hz) A fault that affects services has occurred. The fault cannot be automatically rectified and must be rectified manually (the fault can be an Ethernet interface error, such as a PHY error or a radio interface detection failure caused by a PCI-e interface error or a baseband chip error)

Networking and applications

The AP provides 802.11n/ac wireless access networks for small, simple buildings with a dense user footprint and high capacity demands, such as small and medium enterprises and branch offices. The AP can be flexibly deployed and works in both Fit AP and Bridge mode.

The AP can work as a Fat AP or Fit AP and switch flexibly between the two modes based on the network plan.

When the wireless network scale is small, customers need to purchase only AP products and set the APs up as Fat APs. As the network expands, tens or hundreds of APs can be added to the network. To simplify network management, customers should buy wireless Access Controllers (ACs) to perform centralized management on the APs and set up the APs as Fit APs.

Fit AP network (AP mode)

Sample Fit AP network in  AP mode deployment

In this example, the AP functions as a Fit AP and provides only data forwarding functions. The AC is responsible for user access, AP going online, AP management, authentication, routing, security, and QoS.

Fit AP network (Point-to-point WDS mode)

Sample Fit AP network in point-to-point WDS mode deployment

Fit AP network (Point-to-multipoint WDS mode)

Sample Fit AP network in point-to-multipoint WDS mode deployment

In this network, the AP connects two or more independently wired or wireless LANs through wireless links to construct a data exchange network. In Wireless Distribution System (WDS) mode, the AP supports point-to-point (P2P) and Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP) networking modes. With 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the AP can implement wireless bridging and access functions.

Fit AP mesh network

Sample Fit AP mesh network deployment

In this example, APs function as Mesh Points (MPs) and are fully-meshed to establish an auto-configured and self-healing WMN. APs with the gateway function can work as the Mesh Portal Points (MPPs) through which the WMN can provide access to the Internet. Terminals connect to APs to access the WMN. The WMN uses dedicated mesh routing protocols to guarantee high transmission quality and is more suitable for scenarios that require high bandwidth and highly stable Internet connections.

Fat AP network

Sample Fat AP network deployment

In this example, the device acts as a Fat AP to implement functions such as user access, authentication, data security, service forwarding, and QoS.
