How Are APs and Antennas Selected Based on Site Environments?
Huawei APs include indoor APs, indoor DAS APs, and outdoor APs. Select appropriate APs and matching antennas based on customers' requirements for signal coverage.
In indoor environments with a small area but a high user density, such as meeting rooms, offices, airports, and bars, we can choose indoor APs with omnidirectional antennas. In indoor environments with a low user density, such as office buildings, hotels, and dormitories, use indoor DAS APs to provide hotspot coverage.
When outdoor coverage is required, use high-power outdoor APs with high-gain directional or omnidirectional antennas. Directional antennas are usually placed on a building's roof to provide signal coverage for opposite buildings. Omnidirectional antennas can be placed in open areas such as parks and residential communities.
Select AP models and antennas based on the onsite environment and customer requirements.
