Networking and applications
The cost-effective AP supports 2 x 2 MIMO and provides comprehensive service support capabilities. It is deployed indoors and features high reliability, high security, simple network deployment, automatic AC discovery and configuration, and real-time management and maintenance. Huawei APs comply with IEEE 802.11ac and provide gigabit access for wireless users. This high capacity greatly improves user experience on wireless networks.
The AP provides 802.11n/ac wireless access networks for simple buildings with, small size, dense user footprint, and high capacity demands, such as small and medium enterprises and branches.
The AP can be flexibly deployed and work 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 them up as Fat APs. As the network scale expands, tens or hundreds of APs can be added to the network. To simplify network management, customers should buy ACs to perform centralized management on the APs and set them up 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 (WDS mode: Point-to-point)
Fit AP network (WDS mode: Point-to-multipoint)
In this example, the AP connects two or more independently wired or wireless LANs through wireless links to construct a data exchange network. In WDS mode, the AP supports P2P and P2MP 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 applicable to 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.
