Introduction to WLAN

WLAN Deployment

WLAN deployment is affected by technical factors and non-technical factors. Technical factors include signal interference and wired network quality. Non-technical factors include local laws and property management policies. Before deploying a WLAN, ensure that:
  • The 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands are allowed by local laws.
  • The property management policy permits WLAN deployment.

WLAN Infrastructure

Figure 1-1 WLAN Networking
As shown in Figure 1-1, a WLAN consists of access points (APs), PoE switches, access controllers (ACs), Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) server, and network management system (NMS).
  • AP: WLAN access device. Huawei provides a series of fit APs to meet indoor and outdoor networking requirements.
  • PoE switch: upstream devices for APs. It provides data switching and power for APs. If only one AC is required and the AC has PoE ports, the PoE switch is not required.
  • AC: manages APs and controls the rights of WLAN users.
  • RADIUS server: authenticates WLAN users and assigns rights to them. The RADIUS server is installed on the SPES server.
  • NMS: manages APs and ACs. It monitors status of ACs and APs in real time, processes alarms, and analyzes data.
