SSID Profile

SSID Profile


SSIDs identify different wireless networks. When you search for available wireless networks on your laptop, the displayed wireless network names are SSIDs.

An SSID profile is used to configure the SSID name and other access parameters of a WLAN. The following configurations are performed in an SSID profile:
  • SSID hiding: When creating a WLAN, configure an AP to hide the SSID of the WLAN to ensure security. Only the users who know the SSID can connect to the WLAN.
  • Maximum number of STAs: More access users on a VAP indicate fewer network resources that each user can occupy. To ensure Internet experience of users, you can configure a proper maximum number of access users on a VAP according to actual network situations.
  • SSID hiding when the number of STAs reaches the maximum: When this function is enabled and the number of access users on a WLAN reaches the maximum, the SSID of the WLAN is hidden and new users cannot search for the SSID.
  • Denying access of non-HT STAs: Non-HT STAs that support only 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g protocols cannot access a wireless network. These terminals provide a rate far smaller than 802.11n and 802.11ac terminals. If the non-HT STAs access the wireless network, data transmission rates of the 802.11n and 802.11ac terminals are decreased. To ensure data transmission rates of the 802.11n and 802.11ac terminals, access of non-HT STAs is denied.
  • STA association timeout period: If an AP receives no data packet from an STA in a continuous period of time, the STA goes offline after the association timeout period expires.
  • DTIM interval: The DTIM interval specifies how many Beacon frames are sent by an AP before the Beacon frame that contains the DTIM. The Beacon frame carrying DTIM wakes an STA in power-saving mode, and transmits the broadcast and multicast frames saved on the AP to the STA.
