H3C WA530X Series 802.11ac Wave2 Outdoor AP

H3C WA530X series AP is the latest-generation smart outdoor 802.11ac Wave 2 Access Point (AP) with large RF radiated power. It provides Gigabit Ethernet uplink which breaks the speed limit of Megabit and makes wireless multimedia application reality.

H3C WA530X series AP includes only one model WA530X. It is integrated with smart RF optimizing technology. Maximum transmit power of single RF up to 500mW. It can address outdoor WLAN coverage problems and enhance accuracy and stability. Professional uni-body design and wide-temperature-range resistance make it convenient for outdoor installation and debugging. It’s widely deployed for professional smart coverage in outdoor scenarios such as wireless city and scenic spot.

Features

Smart cloud access and optimal WLAN TCO

  • WA530X series AP complies with 802.11ac Wave2 standard and features maximum two streams 867Mbps wireless transfer rate for 5GHz and total 1.267Gbps speed of combining 2.4GHz and 5GHz. With the smart adaptive antenna array technology, it can increase the scope of coverage, improve access density and operation stability and provide a better mobile cloud access and wireless network total cost of ownership (TCO).

Gigabit SFP optical port

  • Sometimes, 100-meter-long cable is not enough to connect a remote outdoor AP. WA530X series AP supports Gigabit SFP optical port and prevents from faulty of devices like optical modem.

Local forwarding

  • When WA530X series AP runs in Fit mode and forwards packets through a wide area network (WAN), they are usually deployed as data access devices in branch offices, while wireless Access Controllers (ACs) are deployed in headquarter. All user data is sent from APs to AC, and centrally forwarded by the AC. WA530X series AP can convert wireless packets to wired packets avoiding data packets sent through AC but forwarded locally, which significantly saves the WAN link bandwidth.

Dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stacks (Native IPv6)

  • WA530X series AP is fully compliant with IPv6 and implements a dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stacks. Existing IPv4 and IPv6 wired networks can run in parallel and work seamlessly to register WLAN with WX series ACs, so that it never runs as an information silo.

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 the 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

  • WA530X 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 operating channels, or a polling of all channels to satisfy wireless network monitoring and maintenance requirements.

RF Optimizing Engine (ROE)

  • WA530X 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

  • WA530X 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.
