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)
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)
Fit AP network (point-to-multipoint WDS mode)
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
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
In this example, the device acts as a Fat AP to implement functions such as user access, authentication, data security, service forwarding, and QoS.
