WLAN Mesh Configuration Commands

WLAN Mesh Configuration Commands

Command Support

Only the S5720HI supports WLAN-AC commands.

dhcp trust port (Mesh profile view)

Function

The dhcp trust port command enables a DHCP trusted port in a Mesh profile.

The undo dhcp trust port command disables a DHCP trusted port in a Mesh profile.

By default, a DHCP trusted port is enabled in a Mesh profile.

Format

dhcp trust port

undo dhcp trust port

Parameters

None

Views

Mesh profile view

Default Level

2: Configuration level

Usage Guidelines

After a DHCP trusted port is enabled in a Mesh profile and the Mesh profile is applied to an AP, the AP receives the DHCP OFFER, ACK, and NAK packets sent by authorized DHCP servers and forwards the packets to STAs so that the STAs can obtain valid IP addresses and go online.

Example

# Enable a DHCP trusted port in the Mesh profile test.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] wlan
[HUAWEI-wlan-view] mesh-profile name test 
[HUAWEI-wlan-mesh-prof-test] dhcp trust port

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 15 and must be greater than the ecwmin-value value.

txoplimit txoplimit-value

Specifies the transmission opportunity limit (TXOPLimit), which determines the maximum duration in which a STA can occupy a channel. A larger TXOPLimit value indicates a longer duration to occupy a channel.

The value is an integer that ranges from 0 to 255. The unit is 32 microseconds.
NOTE:

If the TXOPLimit value is 0, the STA can send only one data frame every time it occupies a channel.

Views

Default Level

2: Configuration level

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

WMM classifies data packets into the following access categories (ACs): AC_VO, AC_VI, AC_BE, and AC_BK. A set of EDCA parameters is set for each AC queue. These parameters determine the capabilities of a queue to occupy a channel. You can set EDCA parameters for packets of different ACs to provide differentiated priorities to the packets and different capabilities to compete for channels. In this way, differentiated services are implemented.

Table 11-214 describes the EDCA parameters.
Table 11-214  EDCA parameter description

Parameter

Meaning

Arbitration Interframe Spacing Number (AIFSN)

The DIFS has a fixed value. WMM provides different DIFS values for different ACs. A large AIFSN value means that the STA must wait for a long time and has a low priority.

Exponent form of CWmin (ECWmin) and exponent form of CWmax (ECWmax)

ECWmin specifies the minimum backoff time, and ECWmax specifies the maximum backoff time. Together, they determine the average backoff time. Large ECWmin and ECWmax values mean a long average backoff time for the STA and a low STA priority.

Transmission Opportunity Limit (TXOPLimit)

After preempting a channel, the STA can occupy the channel within the period of TXOPLimit. A large TXOPLimit value means that the STA can occupy the channel for a long time. If the TXOPLimit value is 0, the STA can only send one data frame every time it preempts a channel.

Precautions

  • The EDCA parameters configured using the fwa wmm edca-client command take effect only after you set the EDCA mode to manual mode using the fwa wmm edca-mode manual command.
  • By default, queues of AC_VO, AC_VI, AC_BE, and AC_BK are in descending order of priority. Priorities of the four queues are determined by their EDCA parameters.
You need to configure EDCA parameters according to actual scenarios. Table 11-215 shows the configuration of EDCA parameters in voice scenarios, and Table 11-216 shows the configuration in voice and video hybrid scenarios.

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

In scenarios where the AT connects to the remote AP through Mesh links, ATs automatically adjust EDCA parameters based on the number of ATs connecting to the remote AP. In manual mode, you can run the fwa wmm edca-client command to configure EDCA parameters of the AT. The remote AP negotiates with the AT according to the configured parameters.

NOTE:
  • The fwa wmm edca-mode command takes effect only after the FWA mode is enabled in the Mesh profile using the fwa enable command.
  • In automatic EDCA mode, the EDCA parameters manually configured using the fwa wmm edca-client command do not take effect on the AP.
  • This command applies only to scenarios where the AT connects to the remote AP through Mesh links.

Example

# Set the EDCA mode to auto.

Default Level

2: Configuration level

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

An outdoor Access Terminal (AT) needs to set up a Mesh link with a remote AP to provide network access for the connected users. You need to configure Mesh service on the remote AP and enable Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) in the Mesh profile so that the AT can connect to the remote AP.

Configuration Impact

  • FWA and vehicle-ground fast link handover are mutually exclusive in a Mesh profile.

  • After you enable FWA for a Mesh profile using the fwa enable command, the default value of link-num in the max-link-number link-num command is 32, and the value ranges from 1 to 32.

  • After you enable FWA in a Mesh profile using the fwa enable command, the RSSI threshold of a Mesh link is fixed as -90 dBm, and not changed by the link-rssi-threshold command.

  • After you enable FWA in a Mesh profile using the fwa enable command, you can complete Mesh service configuration without the need to bind a Mesh whitelist profile to the Mesh profile.

  • After you enable FWA for a Mesh profile using the fwa enable command, the radio bound to the Mesh profile allows access from only ATs. Do not enable FWA when ATs are not used to prevent a Mesh service configuration failure.

Example

# Enable FWA for the Mesh profile named test.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] wlan
[HUAWEI-wlan-view] mesh-profile name test
[HUAWEI-wlan-mesh-prof-test] fwa enable

Default Level

2: Configuration level

Usage Guidelines

APs on a Mesh network can be sorted into the following types:
  • MP (mesh-node): Any Mesh points (MPs) that can support AP functions. They provide both Mesh service and user access service.
  • MPP (mesh-portal): Mesh points that connect the Mesh network to other types of networks and forward communication traffic on a Mesh network.

Configure Mesh roles of APs according to service requirements. If an AP needs to provide Mesh and user access services, set the Mesh role of the AP to mesh-node. If an AP is located at Mesh network ingress or needs to connect MPs to external networks, set the Mesh role of the AP to mesh-portal.

NOTE:
To ensure the overall Mesh network performance, you are not advised to configure user access services on a mesh-portal AP.

Example

# Set the Mesh role of an AP to mesh-portal in the AP system profile test.

Usage Guidelines

After a Mesh whitelist profile is applied to an AP radio, the AP radio can only set up Mesh links with neighboring APs whose MAC addresses are in the Mesh whitelist profile.

NOTE:
On a Mesh network where ATs are deployed, after FWA is enabled in a Mesh profile using the fwa enable command, you can complete the Mesh service configuration without the need to bind a Mesh whitelist profile to an AP radio. However, in other Mesh application scenarios, an AP radio must have a Mesh whitelist profile bound, and the Mesh whitelist profile must have MAC addresses configured.

An AP radio can only have one Mesh whitelist profile bound. If you run the command multiple times on the same AP radio, the latest configuration overwrites the old one.

On a triple-radio AP, radio 2 does not support the Mesh function.

Example

# Create the Mesh whitelist profile whitelist and add the MAC address 0001-0001-0001 to the whitelist profile. Bind the Mesh whitelist profile whitelist to radio 0 of APs in the AP group group1.

By default, active MPP reselection is disabled.

Format

mpp-active-reselection enable

undo mpp-active-reselection

Parameters

None

Views

AP system profile view

Default Level

2: Configuration level

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

After active MPP reselection is enabled on an MP, the MP evaluates MPPs of the same Mesh ID and on the same channel based on the signal strength of Mesh links, and the numbers of link hops and Mesh links. If a more preferable MPP is available, the MP selects the MPP as its Mesh gateway.

By default, active MPP reselection is disabled, and an MP can only passively reselect MPPs. Only when the minimum RSSI of all Mesh links on the optimal route to the current MPP is lower than the RSSI threshold of a Mesh link, the MP triggers the MPP reselection process.

Precautions

The configuration does not take effect on MPPs or vehicle-mounted APs in train-ground communication scenarios because the vehicle-mounted APs select MPPs based on the fast link handover algorithm.

Active MPP reselection will cause service loss. Configure the function according to actual needs.

Example

# Enable active MPP reselection.

Usage Guidelines

The wideband function enables AP radios on the 5 GHz frequency band to use the 4.9 GHz frequency band. The 4.9 GHz frequency band is applicable to outdoor backhaul scenarios but not wireless coverage services. It is mainly used by WDS and Mesh backhaul links. The 4.9 GHz frequency band is out of the channel range reselected using DFS.

The following table lists channels and frequency distribution of the 4.9 GHz frequency band.
Channel No. Parameters Description
184 Frequency Band 4.9G
Center Frequency (MHz) 4920
Upper Frequency (MHz) 4910
Lower Frequency (MHz) 4930
188 Frequency Band 4.9G
Center Frequency (MHz) 4940
Upper Frequency (MHz) 4930
Lower Frequency (MHz) 4950
192 Frequency Band 4.9G
Center Frequency (MHz) 4960
Upper Frequency (MHz) 4950
Lower Frequency (MHz) 4970
196 Frequency Band 4.9G
Center Frequency (MHz) 4980
Upper Frequency (MHz) 4970
Lower Frequency (MHz) 4990

The 4.9 GHz frequency band supports channel bandwidths of 20 MHz and 40 MHz. Channels 184+188 or 192+196 can be bundled into a 40 MHz channel. Similar to the 5 GHz frequency band, the 4.9 GHz frequency band complies with 802.11a/n/ac.

After the wideband function of the regulatory domain profile is enabled, APs bound to this profile are automatically reset.

Example

# Enable the wideband function of the regulatory domain profile.
