Multiple users’ simultaneous communication, breaking wireless competition
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP supports Multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology, MU-MIMO has become the quintessential feature for wave2 AP. MU-MIMO technology which allows the AP to transmit data to multiple terminal devices simultaneously. According to terminal stream quantity, H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP can concurrently transmit data to multiple terminals with single stream. This improves data transmission efficiency, raises the number of users accessing the AP and provides better user experience.
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP employs a green design which supports dynamic MIMO power saving (DMPS), enhanced automatic power save delivery (E-APSD), and smart identification of real terminal network requirements. It can dynamically adjust the MIMO working mode and efficiently put terminals to sleep from time to time.
Green-AP mode supports single radio standby and allows for more precise control in power saving.
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP supports the innovative per-packet power control technology, which reduces standby power consumption and improves the battery lives of mobile devices without losing packets.
Dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stacks (Native IPv6)
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP is fully compliant with IPv6 and implements a dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stacks. Existing IPv4 and IPv6 wired networks can work in parallel and seamlessly to register WLAN with WX series ACs, so that it never runs as an information silo.
Real Time Spectrum Guard (RTSG)
Real Time Spectrum Guard (RTSG) is the innovative H3C professional state-monitoring program for the wireless spectrum. H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP supports the internal RF data acquisition module to achieve deeply integrated monitoring and real time spectrum protection.
The RTSG Console is integrated into the iMC (intelligent Management Center), and performs data acquisition through the CAPWAP tunnel management and Sensor AP. It can achieve 24x7 wireless signal quality monitoring, trend assessment and unauthorized interference alert. Through active probe and 2.4GHz/5GHz RF interference source (WiFi or non-WiFi) in every band, it provides a graphic representation of real-time FFT plot of the spectral density plot, spectrum diagram, the duty cycle map, event spectrum diagram, channel gain and interference gain. It can also automatically identify the source of interference, to determine the location of rogue wireless equipment, to ensure the wireless network is always in great shape. Combined with H3C iMC IAR (Intelligent Analysis Report) module, it can maintain a complete history of RF quality in the coverage area, including its trace and playback, automatically generate customized trend, compliance and audit reports.
To cater for the different supervision demands in user's wireless environment, the RTSG solution can be deployed in either Local mode or Monitor mode. In Local Mode, you can maintain normal user access and data packet forwarding without compromising effective spectrum protection.
End user Admission Domination (EAD)
End user Admission Domination (EAD) integrates network access and endpoint security products, which ensure only complied wireless clients with mandated enterprise security policies to access network, reducing threat levels from infected wireless clients and raising the bar and improving the overall security of the wireless network. When working with a security policy server, it can remind users, isolate and boot them off the network when their systems are infected or not patched properly.
Remote probing and analysis
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP can work as a remote probing and analysis sensor device. It can intercept WiFi packets nearby and save to a local device in real-time for troubleshooting and optimization analysis. Remote probing can conduct a non-convergent image for working channels, or a polling of all channels to satisfy wireless network monitoring and maintenance requirements.
RF Optimizing Engine (ROE)
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP supports RF Optimizing Engine (ROE), which effectively increases the number of concurrent sessions in middle to high-density access, accomplishes streaming media application acceleration and QoS through character and protocol based RF optimization. Features include multi-user fairness, mixed access fairness, interference filtering, speed optimization, spectrum guide, IPv4/IPv6 multicast signal boost, per-packet power control and intelligent bandwidth guarantee.
Intelligent AP load balancing
H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series AP comes with intelligent load balancing, which spreads the workload according to the number of concurrent users and traffic. If a new incoming user breaks the preset loading limit, AP will check the location of the wireless client in real-time, determine if nearby APs with smaller workload can provide access, and deny the user access only when such AP exists. What sets H3C intelligent load balancing apart from existing load balancing schemes is that it kicks in only if the user is located in an area with overlapping AP coverage, and prevents loss of access when the workload limit is reached but no backup AP exists. This maximizes wireless network capacity while preventing any erratic behavior in load balancing.
Unified management of wired and wireless networks
Wireless Service Manager (WSM) of iMC provides unified management of wired and wireless networks, adding network management functions into existing wired network management systems. All WSM based wireless products can be managed through the open management protocol.
WSM is SOA complied, modular based, fully expandable and evolving with the growing needs of network management. It offers a web-based management system and a simple and user-friendly management platform for wireless network administrators. When working in iMC and coupled with other modules, it also implements panel management wireless management, troubleshooting, performance monitoring, software version control, deployment configuration management and user access management.
