AP System Profile

AP System Profile

An AP system profile is used to configure RU system parameters and can reference STA blacklist and whitelist profiles. The following configurations are performed in an AP system profile:

  • Manage RU login modes.

    A user can log in to an RU through the console port, STelnet, SFTP, and Telnet in wired mode, or through Telnet in wireless mode. These login modes can be disabled in an AP system profile to ensure RU login security. For details, see Managing RU Wired Login and Managing RU Wireless Login.

  • A management VLAN is configured for an RU.

    Generally, the PVID of the access device interface to which an AP directly connects is configured as the management VLAN ID. For details, see Configuration Precautions. Management packets sent by the AP are then transmitted on CAPWAP tunnels. When the packets arrive at the access device, the access device adds the PVID to the packets as their VLAN tags.

    For details, see Configuring a Management VLAN on an AP.
  • Configure PoE parameters for an RU.

    PoE parameters include PoE power, parameters that are configured to allow high inrush current during power-on, and PoE standard used by the RU. For details, see Managing the PoE Function of a Central AP.

  • Configure the alarm function on an RU.

    • You can configure alarm thresholds on an RU to monitor the RU in real time. When the configured thresholds are exceeded, the RU generates alarms or logs to notify the central AP of RU status.

    • If a STA cannot go online due to security type mismatch, UAC, or access user upper limit exceeding, the STA will automatically re-connect to the RU. During this period, the RU sends a large number of STA association failure alarms to the central AP, which degrades the system performance.

    To solve this problem, enable alarm suppression for the RU. The RU then does not report alarms repeatedly in the alarm suppression period, preventing alarm storms.

    For details, see Configuring the Alarm Function on an RU.

  • Configure the log backup and log suppression functions on an RU.

    • Logs record user operations and system running information. After logs are backed up to a server, network administrators can summarize and analyze RU logs to learn about the operations performed on APs for fault location.

      The device supports automatic log backup. After automatic log backup is configured, logs generated by an RU are automatically sent to the log server.

    • If a STA keeps attempting to connect to an RU because of signal interference or instability, the RU sends a large number of duplicate login and logout logs to the Central AP in a short period, causing a huge waste of resources.

      To address this problem, enable log suppression. The RU sends only one log about a user to the Central AP within the log suppression period.

    For details, see Configuring the Log Backup and Log Suppression Functions on an RU.

  • Configure LLDP on an RU.

    The Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) helps the NMS obtain detailed Layer 2 information, such as the network topology, device interface status, and management address.

    After LLDP is configured on an RU, the RU can send LLDP packets carrying local system status information to directly connected neighbors and parse LLDP packets received from neighbors. After the RU discovers a neighbor, the RU sends neighbor information to the central AP. The NMS then obtains RU's LLDP information from the central AP to learn about the network topology.

    For details, see Configuring LLDP on an RU.

  • Configure the effective scope of a STA blacklist or whitelist.

    If a STA blacklist or whitelist is applied to an AP system profile, the STA blacklist or whitelist takes effect on all RUs using the AP system profile. For details, see Applying the Configuration to a VAP Profile or an AP system profile.
