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.

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