Configuring Antenna Alignment VAPs

Configuring Antenna Alignment VAPs

Context

During Mesh network deployment, you can configure antenna alignment VAPs for Mesh nodes to facilitate antenna alignment between neighboring APs. When commissioning the network onsite, connect a mobile terminal to an antenna alignment VAP and start the antenna alignment program on the terminal to collect signal strength information of the peer AP radio. The collected information boosts easy antenna alignment operations.

You can log in to Huawei technical support website and search for Probe Handset Unit to download the Antenna Alignment program.

Procedure

  1. Run:

    system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run:

    wlan

    The WLAN view is displayed.

  3. Configure a security profile.
    1. Run:

      security-profile name profile-name

      The security profile used by antenna alignment VAPs is created and the security profile view is displayed.

    2. Run:

      security { wpa | wpa2 | wpa-wpa2 } psk { pass-phrase | hex } key-value { aes | tkip | aes-tkip }

      The security policy and key are configured.

      By default, the security policy is open system.

      NOTE:

      The antenna alignment VAP supports only the WEP or WPA/WPA2 PSK authentication mode. You can run the security wep share-key and wep key key-id { wep-40 | wep-104 | wep-128 } { pass-phrase | hex } key-value commands to configure WEP authentication.

    3. Run:

      quit

      Return to the WLAN view.

  4. Configure an SSID profile.
    1. Run:

      ssid-profile name profile-name

      An SSID profile is created and the SSID profile view is displayed.

      By default, the system provides the SSID profile default.

    2. Run:

      ssid ssid

      The SSID name is configured.

      By default, the SSID HUAWEI-WLAN is configured in an SSID profile.

    3. Run:

      quit

      Return to the WLAN view.

  5. Configure a VAP profile, and bind it to the SSID profile and the security profile.
    1. Run:

      vap-profile name profile-name

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

      By default, the system provides the VAP profile default.

    2. Run:

      temporary-management enable

      The VAPs are configured as the offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP.

      By default, a VAP is a service VAP.

    3. Run:

      ssid-profile profile-name

      The SSID profile is bound to the VAP profile.

      By default, the SSID profile default is bound to a VAP profile.

    4. Run:

      security-profile profile-name

      The security profile is bound to a VAP profile.

      By default, the security profile default is bound to a VAP profile.

    5. Run:

      quit

      Return to the WLAN view.

  6. Configure an AP system profile.
    1. Run:

      ap-system-profile name profile-name

      An AP system profile is created and the AP system profile view is displayed.

      By default, the system provides the AP system profile default.

    2. Run:

      temporary-management enable

      The offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP functions are enabled.

      By default, offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP functions are disabled.

    3. Run:

      quit

      Return to the WLAN view.

  7. Apply the VAP profile. You can use any of the following methods:

    NOTE:
    • VAPs 13 and 14 are used for the WDS service. Before using these VAPs, ensure that they are not used by other WLAN services.
    • VAP 16 is used for the Mesh service. Before using this VAP, ensure that it is not used by other WLAN services.
    • VAPs 1 to 12 and VAP 15 are used for the offline management VAP configuration. Before using these VAPs, ensure that they are not used by other WLAN services.
    • Bind the VAP profile to an AP group.
      1. Run the ap-group name group-name command to enter the AP group view.
      2. Run the vap-profile profile-name wlan wlan-id radio { radio-id | all } command to bind the VAP profile to the radio.

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

    • Bind the VAP profile to an AP.
      1. Run the ap-id ap-id, ap-mac ap-mac, or ap-name ap-name command to enter the AP view.
      2. Run the vap-profile profile-name wlan wlan-id radio { radio-id | all } command to bind the VAP profile to the radio.

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

    • Bind the VAP profile to AP group radios.
      1. Run the ap-group name group-name command to enter the AP group view.
      2. Run the radio radio-id command to enter the radio view.
      3. Run the vap-profile profile-name wlan wlan-id command to bind the VAP profile to AP group radios.
