Understanding WDS Profiles

Understanding WDS Profiles

A WDS profile contains major parameters required for configuring the WDS function. To enable radios of an AP group or a specified AP to set up Mesh links, a WDS profile must be applied to the radios.

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

  • WDS whitelist profile: A WDS whitelist profile contains MAC addresses of neighboring APs allowed to set up WDS links with an AP. After a WDS 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. In the WDS, only APs with radios working in root mode and middle mode can have a whitelist configured. APs in leaf mode require no whitelist.
    • 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.
    • If no WDS whitelist profile is used, all neighboring APs can access the local AP.
  • AP group radio or AP radio: You can configure major feature parameters for radios in an AP group or a specified AP radio, including the working channel and bandwidth, antenna gain, transmit power, and radio coverage distance. For example, when configuring the WDS function, configure the same channel for radios of WDS APs.
  • Radio profile: The radio profile is classified into the 2G and 5G radio profiles. You can configure other radio parameters for WDS links through a radio profile.

By default, the system provides the WDS profile default. By default, the security profile default-wds with the security policy WPA2+PSK+AES and the security key huawei_secwds is referenced by a WDS profile regardless of whether the WDS profile is the default profile provided by the system or a WDS profile created by users. If the default security profile default-wds is used, you are advised to change the security key of the profile to ensure security.
