Mesh Profile

Mesh Profile

Huawei Fat APs do not support common Mesh functions. Mesh features of Huawei Fat APs are applicable only to vehicle-ground communication scenarios. In vehicle-ground communication scenarios, Fat APs function as vehicle-mounted APs and set up Mesh backhaul links with trackside APs.

A Mesh profile contains major parameters required for configuring the Mesh function. To enable AP radios to set up Mesh links, the AP radios must have a Mesh profile referenced.

When configuring Mesh services, use the Mesh profile with the following profiles:
  • Security profile: After a security profile is bound to a Mesh profile, parameters in the security profile will be used for Mesh link setup to ensure security of Mesh links, The WPA2+PSK+AES security policy is recommended for a Mesh security profile.


    The security policy can be set to open system authentication only for the Mesh network in rail transportation scenarios.

  • Mesh whitelist profile: A Mesh whitelist profile contains MAC addresses of neighboring APs allowed to set up Mesh links with an AP. After a Mesh whitelist profile is applied to an AP radio, only APs with MAC addresses in the whitelist can access the AP, and other APs are denied. On common Mesh networks, a Mesh whitelist must be configured for a Mesh node. To prevent a vehicle-mounted AP from connecting to trackside APs along a different track from the vehicle-mounted AP, add MAC addresses of all trackside APs along the local track to the Mesh whitelist of the vehicle-mounted AP.
    • A neighboring AP with the MAC address in the whitelist can set up a wireless virtual link with the local AP only after passing security authentication.
  • Mesh handover profile: After a Mesh handover profile is bound to a Mesh profile, the Mesh profile can provide the fast Mesh link handover function and apply to train-ground communication scenarios.

By default, the system provides the Mesh profile default. Both the default Mesh profile default and a self-defined Mesh profile have the security profile default-mesh referenced by default. In the security profile default-mesh, the security policy is set to WPA2+PSK+AES and the security key to huawei_secmesh. If the default security profile default-mesh is used, you are advised to change the security key of the profile to ensure security.
