Advanced industrial design concept
H3C WA6630X adopts perfect spherical design, which effectively improves the image of the campus or city, and meets the increasing requirements of users for outdoor wireless access such as wireless cities and scenic spots.
DL/UL MU-MIMO (Wi-Fi 6)
H3C WA6630X AP supports DL/UL MU-MIMO technology, which is the most important feature of 802.11ax. DL/UL MU-MIMO technology allows AP to send data to multiple STAs simultaneously, which can highly improve transmission efficiency and access experience.
Integrated fusion customized cable
With the popularization of outdoor wireless coverage, the number of AP interface is more demanded. While increasing the number of interfaces, the aesthetics and convenience of the overall installation are indeed challenged. WA6630X adopts 32-pin professional integrated cable, which integrates Ethernet port and Console port. There is only one interface outside, which greatly reduces the complexity of equipment installation. At the same time, the reduction of the number of cables also raises the aesthetics after installation.
High-efficiency uplink ports with support of multiple rates
The uplink ports on the WA6630X supports auto-negotiation of various transmit rates, including 100Mbps, 1000Mbps, 2.5Gbps, 5Gbps and 10Gbps.
Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA)
802.11ax uses OFDMA to allow multiple users to transmit data simultaneously. OFDMA splits a channel into sub-channels, known as resource units (RUs), with specific subcarriers, and assigns RUs to different users for simultaneous transmission. OFDMA enables simultaneous multi-user transmission and reduces latency caused by channel contention.
802.11ax assigns a different color per BSS to help WA6630X identify co-channel interference and stop transmission in time. If a radio detects 802.11ax signals from a BSS that has the same color as the radio's BSS, it determines that co-channel interference exists and stops data transmission. This optimizes frequency reuse and improves network capacity.
Target Wake Time (TWT)
TWT improves power efficiency and reduces contention by increasing client sleep time and allowing negotiation of the times that clients can access the medium.
H3C WA6630X adopts built-in Bluetooth technology, which can support 10m long-distance Console function, avoid additional workload in the process of equipment installation and maintenance, reduce the difficulty of troubleshooting, and support iBeacon shaking.
Support for IoT services
For the various application in IoT era, WA6630X has been designed IoT port for H3C T300 IoT modules to provide short-distance and low-power consumption IoT services, such as BLE, RFID, ZigBee, and UWB. It can connect up to ten T300 modules by IoT port. Both this IoT port and network port support link aggregation (LACP) which increase availability and capacity.
H3C WA6630X provides map-based operation and maintenance management. Customer can get real-time information about current scenarios, such as the coverage of wireless city, campus and other scenarios. The network running situation is clear at a glance. The wireless coverage, traffic flow and map are linked in real time, so that wireless network management will be more intuitive and simpler.
Real Time Spectrum Guard (RTSG)
Real Time Spectrum Guard (RTSG) is the innovative H3C professional state-monitoring program for the wireless spectrum. H3C 802.11ax 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.
H3C Cellular Coexistence Feature (CCF)
H3C uses built-in hardware filtering to minimize the impact of interference from 3G/4G cellular networks.
Anchor AC mode
Anchor AC mode is designed for networks of all sizes, including SMB. In Anchor AC mode, AP will serve as a virtual controller for the entire network.
H3C cloud-managed APs were developed based on the Cloudnet platform, on which network administrators can manage the cloud-managed APs directly, for example, view cloud-managed AP status in real time and deploy configurations from the cloud to cloud-managed APs. This greatly improves network efficiency and enhances security and stability.
Smart cloud access and optimal WLAN TCO
WA6630X AP complies with 802.11ax standard and features maximum 4.8Gbps wireless transfer rate for 5GHz and total 5.4Gbps speed of combining 2.4GHz and 5GHz. With the advanced 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).
When WA6630X 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. WA6630X 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)
WA6630X 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 H3C WX series or Oasis, 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
WA6630X AP can work as a remote probing and analysis sensor device. It can intercept Wi-Fi 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)
WA6630X 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, band navigation, IPv4/IPv6 multicast signal boost, per-packet power control and intelligent bandwidth guarantee, band navigation which can support 5G radio priority to assign 5G radio-supported clients to 5G radio, prior to 2.4G. RF Management automatically assigns channel and power settings, provides airtime fairness, and ensures AP stay clear of all source of RF interference to deliver reliable, high performance WLANs
Intelligent AP load balancing
WA6630X 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.
WA6630X employs a green design that supports dynamic MIMO power saving (DMPS), enhanced automatic power save delivery (E-APSD), and smart identification of terminal network requirements. It can dynamically adjust the MIMO working mode and efficiently put terminals to sleep.
WA6630X supports green AP mode that enables single radio standby and allows for more precise power control.
WA6630X supports the innovative per-packet power control (PPC) technology, which reduces standby power consumption and improves mobile device standby time.
