LED indicators

Type Color Status Description
Power-on (default) Green Steady on The AP is on, but the software has not started
Software Startup Green

Steady on after one blink

After the system resets and starts uploading software, the indicator blinks green once. It remains steady green until the software is uploaded and started
Running Green Blinks 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
Blinks 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 a low-power consumption state
Alarm Green Blinks once every 0.25 seconds (4 Hz)
  • The software is being upgraded
  • After the software is upgraded and starts, the AP, working in Fit AP mode, requests to go online on the AC and maintains this state until successful (before the CAPWAP link is established)
  • If the AP, working in Fit AP mode, fails to go online the CAPWAP link disconnects
Fault Red Steady on A fault has occurred, such as a DRAM detection failure or system software loading failure. The fault cannot be automatically rectified and must be rectified manually

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)

Sample deployment of a Fit AP network in 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)

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

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

Sample deployment of a Fit AP network in point-to-multi-point WDS mode

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

Sample deployment of a 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

Sample deployment of a 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.
