Configuring WLAN Location for Ekahau Tags

Configuring WLAN Location for Ekahau Tags

Pre-configuration Tasks

Before configuring the Tag location function, perform the tasks listed in the following table.

Table 16-7  Pre-configuration tasks

Task

Description

Create an AP group

Each AP will be added and can be added to only one AP group. An AP group is typically used to provide the same configurations for multiple APs. By default, the system has an AP group default. To create an AP group, execute this task. For details, see Creating an AP Group.

Configure an AP to go online

Configure a DHCP server

To go online normally, APs and STAs must obtain IP addresses. You can configure an AC as a DHCP server or use an independent DHCP server to allocate IP addresses to APs and STAs. For details, see Configuring a DHCP Server.

Configure network interconnections

To enable APs and STAs to obtain IP addresses, APs to discover the AC and go online on the AC, and STAs to access the network, configure interconnections between network devices. For details, see Configuring Network Interconnections.

Configure country codes

Correct country code configuration ensures that radio attributes of APs comply with laws and regulations of countries and regions to which the APs are delivered. For details, see Configuring Country Codes.

Configure a source interface

Before an AP establishes a CAPWAP tunnel with an AC, a source interface or source address must be specified for the AC. For details, see Configuring a Source Interface or Source Address.

Add APs

You can add APs in any of the following modes:
  • Importing APs offline.
  • Configuring AC to automatically discover an AP.
  • Manually confirming APs added to the list of unauthorized APs.
Adding an AP offline is recommended when the MAC address or SN of the AP is already learned. For details, see Adding APs.

Procedure

  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run wlan

    The WLAN view is displayed.

  3. Run air-scan-profile name profile-name

    An air scan profile is created and the air scan profile view is displayed.

    By default, the system provides the air scan profile default.

  4. Run the undo scan-disable command to enable the air scan function.

    By default, the air scan function is enabled.

  5. Run scan-channel-set { country-channel | dca-channel | work-channel }

    An air scan channel set is configured.

    By default, an air scan channel set contains all channels supported by the country code of an AP.

  6. Run quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  7. Run radio-2g-profile name profile-name or radio-5g-profile name profile-name

    The radio profile view of the specified AP is displayed.

    • By default, the system provides the 2G radio profile default.
    • By default, the system provides the 5G radio profile default.

  8. Run air-scan-profile profile-name

    The air scan profile is bound to the radio profile.

    By default, the air scan profile default is bound to a radio profile.

  9. Run quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  10. Run vap-profile name profile-name

    A VAP profile is created.

    By default, the system provides the VAP profile default.

    NOTE:

    When a VAP profile exists in the system, you can use the existing one or create a new one.

  11. Run quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  12. Bind the VAP profile to radios of an AP group or a specific AP as required to make the radios properly work. For details, see Binding VAP Profiles.
  13. Run quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  14. Run location-profile name profile-name

    A location profile is created and the location profile view is displayed.

    By default, no location profile is created.

  15. Run ekahau tag-enable

    WLAN location for Ekahau tags is enabled.

    By default, WLAN location for Ekahau tags is disabled.

  16. Run ekahau server ip-address ip-address port port-num [ via-ac ac-port ac-port-num ]

    The destination to which and port number through which the AP reports the received Ekahau tag information are configured.

    By default, the destination to which and port number through which the AP reports tag information are not configured.

  17. (Optional) Run source ip-address ip-address

    The source IP address from which the AC sends packets to the Ekahau Location Server is configured.

    By default, the source IP address from which the AC sends packets to the Ekahau Location Server is not configured.

    NOTE:
    • The tags must send signals on the AP's working or scanning channels.
    • You need to run this command only when location information is forwarded to the location server via an AC.
    • To configure the AC as the destination to which the AP reports tag information:
      • You must configure the IP address of the Ekahau Location Server and port number for communicating with the Ekahau Location Server.
      • Ensure that the port number configured on the Ekahau Location Server is the same as the number of the port through which the AC communicates with the Ekahau Location Server.
    • To configure the Ekahau Location Server as the destination to which the AP reports tag information, ensure that the port number configured on the Ekahau Location Server is the same as the number of the port through which the AP reports tag information.
    • The port number through which the AP reports tag information cannot be the same as the number of the port through which the AC communicates with the Ekahau Location Server.
    • If the location server uses the Linux system and has URPF enabled, the source IP address that the AC uses to send packets to the location server must be pinged by the server.

  18. Run quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  19. Enter the AP group view or AP view.

    • Run the ap-group name group-name command to enter the AP group view.
    • Run the ap-id ap-id, ap-mac ap-mac, or ap-name ap-name command to enter the AP view.

  20. Run radio-2g-profile profile-name { radio { radio-id | all } } or radio-5g-profile profile-name { radio { radio-id | all } }

    The radio profile is bound to the AP group or AP.

    • By default, the 2G radio profile default is bound to an AP group, but no 2G radio profile is bound to an AP.
    • By default, the 5G radio profile default is bound to an AP group, but no 5G radio profile is bound to an AP.

  21. Run location-profile profile-name radio { radio-id | all }

    The location profile is bound to the specified radio on the AP.

    By default, no location profile is bound to a radio.

  22. Run quit

    Return to the WLAN view.

  23. (Optional) Run location source ip-address ip-address

    The source IP address in packets sent by an AC to a location server is configured.

    By default, the source IP address is not configured in packets sent by an AC to a location server.

    NOTE:

    In scenarios where the active and standby ACs are deployed, configure the source IP address on the standby AC using the location source ip-address ip-address command. The source IP address configured on the active AC using the source command cannot be synchronized to the standby AC. When source IP addresses are configured on an AC using the location source and source commands at the same time, the source IP address configured using the source command takes effect.

Verifying the Configuration

Run the display location-profile name profile-name command to check location based service (LBS) information about tag location.
