Networking and applications

Both APs are useful in open outdoor areas with high user densities, such as residential communities, schools, gardens, or other locations with high demands for wireless access. You can use them together with an outdoor antenna to provide long-distance network coverage and implement stable radio backhaul in a wireless distribution system.

AP6510DN-AGNs and AP6610DN-AGNs can work as Fat or Fit APs and switch between the two modes based on the network plan.

When the wireless network is small, purchase only AP products and set them to Fat AP. As the network scale expands, tens or hundreds of APs will exist on the network. To simplify network management, we recommend you purchase ACs to perform centralized management and set them to work as Fit APs.

Fit AP networking (AP mode)

The AP functions as a Fit AP and provides only data forwarding functions. It is responsible for:

  • User access
  • AP go-online

  • AP management

  • Authentication

  • Routing

  • Security

  • QoS

Fit AP networking (WDS mode: Point-to-point)

Fit AP networking (WDS mode: Point-to-multipoint)

The AP connects two or more independently wired or wireless LANs through wireless links. In Wireless Distribution System (WDS) mode, the AP supports P2P and P2MP networking modes. Using its 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the AP can implement wireless bridging and access functions.

Fit AP mesh networking

APs function as Mesh Points (MPs) and are fully-meshed to establish an auto-configured and self-healing Wireless Mesh Network (WMN). APs with a 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 provided high transmission quality and work best for scenarios that require high bandwidth and highly stable Internet connections.

Fat AP networking

The device functions as a Fat AP to implement:

  • User access
  • Authentication

  • Data security

  • Service forwarding

  • QoS
