Configuring Antenna Alignment VAPs

Configuring Antenna Alignment VAPs

Context

During WDS network deployment, you can configure antenna alignment VAPs for WDS nodes to facilitate antenna alignment between neighboring APs. When commissioning the network onsite, connect a mobile terminal to an antenna alignment VAP and start the antenna alignment program on the terminal to collect signal strength information of the peer AP radio. The collected information boosts easy antenna alignment operations.

You can log in to Huawei technical support website and search for Probe Handset Unit to download the Antenna Alignment program.

Procedure

  • Configure the default antenna alignment VAP.
    1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
    2. Run the wlan command to enter the WLAN view.
    3. Run the ap-system-profile name profile-name command to create an AP system profile and enter the AP system profile view.

      By default, the system provides the AP system profile default.

    4. Run the undo temporary-management disable command to enable the antenna alignment VAP functions.

      By default, offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP functions are enabled.

    5. (Optional) Run the temporary-management psk command to change the password for the default SSID (hw_manage_xxxx) of the antenna alignment VAP.

      The default password of an offline management VAP or antenna alignment VAP is hw_manage.

    6. Run the quit command to return to the WLAN view.
    7. Apply the AP system profile using any of the following methods:

      • Bind the AP system profile to an AP group.

        1. Run the ap-group name group-name command to enter the AP group view.
        2. Run the ap-system-profile profile-name command to bind the AP system profile to an AP group.

          By default, the AP system profile default is bound to an AP group, but no AP system profile is bound to an AP.

      • Bind the AP system profile to an AP.

        1. Run the ap-id ap-id, ap-mac ap-mac, or ap-name ap-name command to enter the AP view.
        2. Run the ap-system-profile profile-name command to bind the AP system profile to an AP.

          By default, the AP system profile default is bound to an AP group, but no AP system profile is bound to an AP.

  • Create an antenna alignment VAP.
    1. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
    2. Run the wlan command to enter the WLAN view.
    3. Configure a security profile.

      1. Run the security-profile name profile-name command to create a security profile used by the antenna alignment VAP and enter the security profile view.

        By default, security profiles default, default-wds, and default-mesh are available in the system.

      2. Run the security { wpa | wpa2 | wpa-wpa2 } psk { pass-phrase | hex } key-value { aes | tkip | aes-tkip } command to configure a security policy and a key.

        By default, the security policy is open system.

        NOTE:

        The antenna alignment VAP supports only the WEP or WPA/WPA2 PSK authentication mode. You can run the security wep share-key and wep key key-id { wep-40 | wep-104 | wep-128 } { pass-phrase | hex } key-value commands to configure WEP authentication.

      3. Run the quit command to return to the WLAN view.

    4. Configure an SSID profile.

      1. Run the ssid-profile name profile-name command to create an SSID profile and enter the SSID profile view.

        By default, the system provides the SSID profile default.

      2. Run the ssid ssid command to configure an SSID name.

        By default, the SSID HUAWEI-WLAN is configured in an SSID profile.

      3. Run the quit command to return to the WLAN view.

    5. Configure a VAP profile, and bind it to the SSID profile and the security profile.

      1. Run the vap-profile name profile-name command to create a VAP profile and enter the VAP profile view.

        By default, the system provides the VAP profile default.

      2. Run the temporary-management enable command to configure the VAPs as an antenna alignment VAP.

        By default, a VAP is a service VAP.

      3. Run the ssid-profile profile-name command to bind the SSID profile to the VAP profile.

        By default, the SSID profile default is bound to a VAP profile.

      4. Run the security-profile profile-name command to bind the security profile to the VAP profile.

        By default, the security profile default is bound to a VAP profile.

      5. Run the quit command to return to the WLAN view.

    6. Configure an AP system profile, and enable the antenna alignment VAP functions in the AP system profile.

      1. Run the ap-system-profile name profile-name command to create an AP system profile and enter the AP system profile view.

        By default, the system provides the AP system profile default.

      2. Run the undo temporary-management disable command to enable the antenna alignment VAP functions.

        By default, offline management VAP and antenna alignment VAP functions are enabled.

      3. Run the quit command to return to the WLAN view.

    7. Apply the VAP profile using any of the following methods:
