Solution Overview

Solution Overview

Transportation hubs in wireless city projects include train stations, coach stations, bus stations, and airports.

  • In indoor areas such as waiting halls of train stations, coach stations, and airports, most STAs are mobile phones. In such scenarios, users move frequently, and high network capacity is required. Depending on different building roof heights and user densities in these scenarios, outdoor AP8150DNs with external small-angle antennas or indoor APs are recommended to provide wireless coverage.
  • In outdoor areas such as bus stations, most STAs are mobile phones. In such scenarios, no high bandwidth or network capacity is required, and users move frequently, so only signal coverage needs to be considered. Outdoor AP8050DNs or AP8150DNs with external omnidirectional antennas are recommended.

Table 1 lists AP models used in different scenarios of transportation hubs.

Input Information for WLAN Planning

Information Record

Confirmed (Yes or No)




Confirm information completeness of drawings, including the scale, or google information about coverage areas.

*Coverage area


Confirm coverage areas, and classify them into common and key coverage areas.

*Required field strength


For example, not less than –65 dBm in indoor areas and not less than –70 dBm in outdoor areas

*Service usage


For example, Internet access for passers-by using mobile phones

*Number of users, bandwidth, and concurrency rate


Confirm the numbers of access users and concurrent users, and per-user bandwidth.

*EIRP and available channels


Confirm available 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels in local areas, and avoid using reserved or radar channels.

*AP selection


Confirm whether external or built-in antennas are used, and whether 802.11ac Wave 2 APs are required.

*External antenna


For example, directional antennas are used to provide coverage for roads, and omnidirectional antennas to provide coverage for open areas



Obstacles on sites, including bearing columns, closets, and partitions in indoor scenarios, and buildings, trees, and greenbelts in outdoor scenarios

*Interference sources


Confirm whether signal interference sources exist.

*AP installation positions


Confirm positions for installing APs.

*Power supply cabling


Confirm the length of PoE cables. It is recommended that PoE cables be no longer than 80 m.

Special requirements


For example, roaming, delay, and packet loss ratio requirements
