- Managing 802.11n APs
H3C WX5002 series and WX6100 series can be used to manage 802.11a/b/g APs. In addition, they can be used with H3C 802.11n-based AP to provide wireless access rates equivalent to six times the wireless access rates provided by a conventional 802.11a/b/g network, enlarge coverage and deploy wireless multimedia applications.
- Providing flexible data forwarding modes
H3C WX5002 series and WX6100 series support both centralized forwarding and distributed forwarding. If an AC provides only centralized forwarding, although the AC can completely control packets, all wireless service flows need to be processed by the AC and thus the forwarding capability of the AC is very likely to become a bottleneck. In particular, when packets are forwarded via a wide area network (WAN), APs are deployed as data access devices in branch offices but ACs are deployed in the headquarters. If all user data is sent by APs to an AC and then the AC forwards all the user data, the forwarding efficiency of the AC will be quite low. When the 802.11n protocol is used, the traffic of the packets passing an AP can be as high as 300 Mbps and then the processing performance of the AC is more likely to become a bottleneck of the wireless system. If distributed forwarding is provided, a packet is translated by the AP into a packet in wired format and then the packet does not pass the AC. In this way, broadband access is provided for wireless packets.
H3C WX5002 series and WX6100 series support both centralized forwarding and distributed forwarding. Users can set the forwarding mode for an SSID as needed.
- Providing QoS profile
In the NMS based on user authorization, a user is authenticated before accessing a network. The authorization controls the network areas that a user can access as well as the network QoS such as the access bandwidth and access priority that the user can obtain. In a network where users are moving or in a large network, the QoS profile provides a more modularized, much simpler management means that facilitates network administrators' routine management tasks.
The administrators configure a group of policies based on a user group or a group of customized polices in the profile of each user, and allocate a profile in advance to each user group or each specific user. When the user has passed the authentication and is online, the port through which the user accesses the network dynamically sends the profile data, so that the user can dynamically obtain the network areas that he or she can access as well as the access bandwidth and access priority that he or she can obtain. When the user is offline, the configuration data of the user is removed from this port and the special access rights of the user is disabled on this port.
The QoS profile can carry the following configuration data:
- ACL data
- QoS data (priority, bandwidth control, 802.1p and DSCP mark)
- VLAN data
- Providing user access control based on the locations of APs
In view of security or charging, system administrators may hope to control the location that a wireless user can access in the network. H3C WX5002 series and WX6100 series support AP-based user access control. When a wireless user attempts to access the network, the authentication server may send a list of APs that the user can access to the AC, so as to control the user's access through the AC. In this way, the wireless user can access only the specified APs.
- Providing fine wireless user management
With MAC-based authentication and access control, a customer can configure and modify the rights of user groups on the AAA server, and can configure the rights of specific users. This fine user rights control method greatly enhances the availability of the wireless network and enables network administrators to easily allocate access rights to various levels of users or user groups.
The MAC-based VLAN function is also a distinct feature of H3C WX5002 series and WX6100 series. In terms of control policies, administrators can allocate users (MAC addresses) of the same nature to the same VLAN and configure VLAN-based security policies on the AC. This simplifies system configuration and provides management at a user-level granularity.
