    Feature descriptions

    10G uplink

    The AP provides a 10 GE uplink interface to support uplink bandwidth of over 5 Gbit/s.

    IoT extension

    The AP provides an external IoT module that allows for extension of ZigBee and RFID, implementing short-distance, lower-power consumption IoT applications.

    802.11ax standard compliance

    The AP supports 1,024 QAM modulation and 8 x 8 MIMO technology, achieving an air interface rate of 4.8 Gbit/s. DL OFDMA modulation enables multiple users to receive and send information at the same time, reducing the delay and improving network efficiency.

    MU-MIMO

    The AP supports DL MU-MIMO* to send data to multiple STAs at the same time (currently, most 802.11n or 802.11ac Wave 1 APs can only send data to one STA simultaneously). The 802.11ax standard supports a maximum of 8SU-8MU.

    Note: *UL OFDMA and UL MU-MIMO are not supported currently.

    Cloud-based management

    Huawei Cloud Managed Network (CMN) Solution consists of the cloud management platform and a full range of cloud managed network devices. The cloud management platform provides various functions including management of APs, tenants, applications, and licenses, network planning and optimization, device monitoring, network service configuration, and value-added services.

    High-density boost technology

    Huawei uses the following technologies to address challenges in high-density scenarios, including access problems, data congestion, and poor roaming experience:

    SmartRadio for air interface optimization

    Load balancing during smart roaming: The load-balancing algorithm can work during smart roaming for load-balancing detection among APs on the network after STA roaming to adjust the STA load on each AP, improving network stability.

    Intelligent DFA technology: The Dynamic Frequency Assignment (DFA) algorithm is used to automatically detect adjacent-channel and co-channel interference, and identify any 2.4 GHz redundant radio bandwidth. Through automatic inter-AP negotiation, the redundant radio bandwidth is automatically switched to another mode (dual-5G AP models support 2.4G-to-5G switchover) or is disabled to reduce 2.4 GHz co-channel interference and increase the system capacity.

    Intelligent conflict optimization technology: The dynamic Enhanced Distributed Channel Access (EDCA) and airtime scheduling algorithms are used to schedule the channel occupation time and service priority of each user. This ensures that each user is assigned relatively equal time for using channel resources and user services are scheduled in an orderly manner, improving service processing efficiency and user experience.

    Air interface performance optimization

    In high-density scenarios where many users access the network, increased number of low-rate STAs consumes more resources on the air interface, reduces the AP capacity, and lowers user experience. Therefore, Huawei APs will check the signal strength of STAs during access and reject access from weak-signal STAs. At the same time, the APs monitor the rate of online STAs in real time and forcibly disconnect low-rate STAs so that the STAs can reassociate with APs that have stronger signals. The terminal access control technology can increase air interface use efficiency and allow access from more users.

    5G-prior access (band steering)

    The APs support both 2.4G and 5G frequency bands. The 5G-prior access function enables an AP to steer STAs to the 5 GHz frequency band first, which reduces load and interference on the 2.4 GHz frequency band, improving the user experience.

    Wired and wireless dual security guarantee

    To ensure data security, Huawei APs integrate wired and wireless security measures and provide comprehensive security protection.

    Authentication and encryption for wireless access

    The APs support WEP, WPA/WPA2-PSK, WPA/WPA2-PPSK, WPA/WPA2-802.1x, and WAPI authentication/encryption modes to ensure security of the wireless network. The authentication mechanism is used to authenticate user identities so that only authorized users can access network resources. The encryption mechanism is used to encrypt data transmitted over wireless links to ensure that the data can only be received and parsed by expected users.

    Analysis on non-Wi-Fi interference sources

    Huawei APs can analyze the spectrum of non-Wi-Fi interference sources and identify them, including baby monitors, Bluetooth devices, digital cordless phones (at the 2.4 GHz frequency band only), wireless audio transmitters (at both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands), wireless game controllers, and microwave ovens. Coupled with Huawei eSight, the precise locations of the interference sources can be detected, and the spectrum of them displayed, enabling the administrator to remove the interference in a timely manner.

    Rogue device monitoring

    Huawei APs support WIDS/WIPS, and can monitor, identify, defend, counter, and perform refined management on the rogue devices, to provide security guarantees for air interface environment and wireless data transmission.

    AP access authentication and encryption

    The AP access control ensures validity of APs. The CAPWAP link protection and DTLS encryption provide security assurance, improving data transmission security between the AP and the AC.

    Automatic radio calibration

    Automatic radio calibration allows an AP to collect signal strength and channel parameters of surrounding APs and generate AP topology according to the collected data. Based on interference from authorized APs, rogue APs, and non-Wi-Fi interference sources, each AP automatically adjusts its transmit power and working channel to make the network operate at the optimal performance. In this way, network reliability and user experience are improved.

    Automatic application identification

    Huawei APs support smart application control technology and can implement visualized control on Layer 4 to Layer 7 applications.

    Traffic identification

    Coupled with Huawei ACs, the APs can identify over 1,600 common applications in various office scenarios. Based on the identification results, policy control can be implemented on user services, including priority adjustment, scheduling, blocking, and rate limiting to ensure efficient bandwidth resource use and improve quality of key services.

    Traffic statistics collection

    Traffic statistics of each application can be collected globally, by SSID, or by user, enabling the network administrator to know application use status on the network. The network administrator or operator can implement visualized control on service applications on smart terminals to enhance security and ensure effective bandwidth control.
