Static Load Balancing Group

Context

The load balancing function applies to scenarios where there is a high degree of overlap between APs' coverage ranges. If APs engaged in load balancing are far from each other, a STA may connect to a distant AP, which affects wireless experience of users.

When the load difference between APs reaches the load difference threshold, some STAs may access the network slowly because the APs will reject access requests of STAs according to the load balancing algorithm. If a STA continues sending association requests to an AP, the AP allows the STA to associate when the number of consecutive association attempts of the STA exceeds the maximum number of rejection times.

In static load balancing mode, APs providing the same services are manually added to a load balancing group. When a STA needs to access a WLAN, it sends an Association Request packet to an AC through an AP. The AC determines whether to permit access from the STA according to a load balancing algorithm. The implementation of static load balancing must meet the following conditions.
  • If dual-band APs are used, traffic is load balanced among APs working on the same frequency band.
  • Each load balancing group supports a maximum of 16 AP radios.
  • Under the agile distributed network architecture composed of the central AP and RUs, you only need to add radios of the RUs to a static load balancing group.

Procedure

  • Create a static load balancing group.
    1. Choose Configuration > Wireless Services > AP Group > Static Load Balancing Group. The Static Load Balancing Group page is displayed.
    2. Click Create. Set the parameters in Table 1-141.

      Name of the static load balancing group.

      Maximum number of rejections

      Maximum number of associations for the load balancing group

      When the load in a load balancing group is unbalanced, the AC rejects a STA's request for associating with an AP with heavy load, but does not keep rejecting. When the number of consecutive association requests of the STA exceeds the maximum value, the AP allows the STA to associate with the AP.
