Multiple users’ simultaneous communication, breaking wireless competition

H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series outdoor 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 outdoor 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.

Local forwarding

H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series outdoor 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. H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series outdoor 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)

H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series outdoor 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, can 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

H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series outdoor 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 outdoor 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 outdoor 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.

TR-069 Feature (CWMP)

H3C 802.11ac Wave2 series outdoor AP supports TR-069 which enables centralized management on distributed devices. TR-069 also known as “CPE WAN Management Protocol “is a technical specification of the DSL Forum (

Unified management of wired and wireless networks

H3C Intelligent Management Center (iMC) Wireless Service Manager (WSM) 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 wireless management, troubleshooting, performance monitoring, software version control, deployment configuration management and user access management.
