Configuring WLAN Location for AeroScout MUs

Configuring WLAN Location for AeroScout MUs

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring the WLAN location function, perform the tasks listed in the following table.

Table 18-6  Pre-configuration tasks

Task

Description

Create an AP group

Each AP will be added and can be added to only one AP group. An AP group is usually used to provide the same configurations for multiple APs. By default, the system has an AP group default. To create an AP group, execute this task. For details, see Creating an AP Group.

Configure an AP to go online

Configure a DHCP server

To go online normally, APs and STAs must obtain IP addresses. You can configure an AC as a DHCP server or use an independent DHCP server to allocate IP addresses to APs and STAs. For details, see Configuring a DHCP Server.

Configure network interconnections

To enable APs and STAs to obtain IP addresses, APs to discover the AC and go online on the AC, and STAs to access the network, configure interconnections between network devices. For details, see Configuring Network Interconnections.

Configure country codes

Correct country code configuration ensures that radio attributes of APs comply with laws and regulations of countries and regions to which the APs are delivered. For details, see Configuring Country Codes.

Configure a source interface

Before an AP establishes a CAPWAP tunnel with an AC, a source interface or source address must be specified for the AC. For details, see Configuring a Source Interface.

Add APs

You can add APs in any of the following modes:
  • Importing APs offline.
  • Configuring AC to automatically discover an AP.
  • Manually confirming APs added to the list of unauthorized APs.
Adding an AP offline is recommended when the MAC address or SN of the AP is already learned. For details, see Adding APs.

Procedure

  1. Run:

    system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run:

    wlan

    The WLAN view is displayed.

  3. Run:

    air-scan-profile name profile-name

    An air scan profile is created and the air scan profile view is displayed.

    By default, the system provides the air scan profile default.

  4. Run the undo scan-disable command to enable the air scan function.

    By default, the air scan function is enabled.

  5. Run:

    scan-channel-set { country-channel | dca-channel | work-channel }

    An air scan channel set is configured.

    By default, an air scan channel set contains all channels supported by the country code of an AP.

  6. (Optional) Run:

    scan-period scan-time

    The period during which the AP scans channels is configured.

    The default period during which an AP scans channels is 60 ms.

    The channel scan period applies to radio calibration, smart roaming, WLAN location, and WIDS functions.

    A shorter channel scan period means fewer location packets that the device can obtain, which affects the location accuracy. A longer channel scan period has a much larger impact on services.

  7. (Optional) Run:

    scan-interval scan-time

    The interval at which the AP scans channels is configured.

    By default, the air scan interval is 60000 ms.

    The channel scan interval applies to radio calibration, smart roaming, WLAN location, and WIDS functions.

    NOTE:
    • If the customer has high requirements on real-time data analysis, configure a small air scan interval using the scan-interval command to improve the scan frequency; however, higher scan frequency indicates much larger impact on the services.

    • If the customer has high requirements on real-time locating services, deploy the APs on the same channel to scan channels.

  8. Run:

    quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  9. Run:

    radio-2g-profile name profile-name or radio-5g-profile name profile-name

    The radio profile view of the specified AP is displayed.

    • By default, the system provides the 2G radio profile default.
    • By default, the system provides the 5G radio profile default.

  10. Run:

    air-scan-profile profile-name

    The air scan profile is bound to the radio profile.

    By default, the air scan profile default is bound to a radio profile.

  11. Run:

    quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  12. Run:

    vap-profile name profile-name

    A VAP profile is created.

    By default, the system provides the VAP profile default.

    NOTE:

    When a VAP profile exists in the system, you can use the existing one or create a new one.

  13. Run:

    quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  14. Bind the VAP profile to radios of an AP group or a specific AP as required to make the radios properly work. For details, see Binding VAP Profiles.
  15. Run:

    quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  16. Run:

    location-profile name profile-name

    A location profile is created and the location profile view is displayed.

    By default, no location profile is created.

  17. Run:

    aeroscout mu-enable

    WLAN location for AeroScout MUs is enabled.

    By default, WLAN location for AeroScout MUs is disabled.

  18. Run:

    aeroscout server port port-num [ via-ac ac-port ac-port-num ]

    The destination to which and port number through which the AP reports the received AeroScout MU information are configured.

    By default, the destination to which and port number through which the AP reports MU information are not configured.

  19. (Optional) Run:

    source ip-address ip-address

    The source IP address from which the AC sends packets to the AeroScout Location Server is configured.

    By default, the source IP address from which the AC sends packets to the AeroScout Location Server is not configured.

    NOTE:
    • You need to run this command only when location information is forwarded to the location server via an AC.
    • To configure the AC as the destination to which the AP reports tag information:
      • You must configure the number of the port through which the AC communicates with the AeroScout Location Server.
      • Ensure that the port number configured on the AeroScout Location Server is the same as the number of the port through which the AC communicates with the AeroScout Location Server.
    • To configure the AeroScout Location Server as the destination to which the AP reports MU information, ensure that the port number configured on the AeroScout Location Server is the same as the number of the port through which the AP reports MU information.
    • The port number through which the AP reports MU information cannot be the same as the number of the port through which the AC communicates with the AeroScout Location Server.
    • If the location server uses the Linux system and has URPF enabled, the source IP address that the AC uses to send packets to the location server must be pinged by the server.

  20. (Optional) Run:

    aeroscout compound-time time-value

    The aggregation time of AeroScout MU packets is configured on the AC.

    The default aggregation time of AeroScout MU packets is 6553.5s on the AC.

    NOTE:
    The AeroScout Location Server and AC can both send the setting of the MU packet aggregation time to the AP; however, the shorter aggregation time takes effect on the AP. For example, if the aggregation time is set to 3600 seconds on the AeroScout Location Server and 4800 seconds on the AC, the aggregation time of 3600 seconds takes effect on the AP.

  21. Run:

    quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  22. Enter the AP group view or AP view.

    • Run the ap-group name group-name command to enter the AP group view.
    • Run the ap-id ap-id, ap-mac ap-mac, or ap-name ap-name command to enter the AP view.

  23. Run:

    radio-2g-profile profile-name { radio { radio-id | all } } or radio-5g-profile profile-name { radio { radio-id | all } }

    The radio profile is bound to the AP group or AP.

    • By default, the 2G radio profile default is bound to an AP group, but no 2G radio profile is bound to an AP.
    • By default, the 5G radio profile default is bound to an AP group, but no 5G radio profile is bound to an AP.

  24. Run:

    location-profile profile-name radio { radio-id | all }

    The location profile is bound to the specified radio on the AP.

    By default, no location profile is bound to a radio.

  25. Run:

    quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  26. Run:

    commit { all | ap-name ap-name | ap-id { ap-id1 [ to ap-id2 ] } &<1-10> }

    Configurations are delivered to APs.

Verifying the Configuration

  • Run the display location-profile name profile-name command to check the configuration for AeroScout MU location.
