Managing the AP

Configuring the default input power level

About this task

The power level of the AP can be high, middle, or low. The AP automatically obtains its input power level from the uplink switch at startup. If the AP fails to obtain its input power level, the AP operates at the configured default input power level.

An AP can be powered through a power adapter or through its PoE or PoE+ ports. The following table shows the relationship between the AP's power supply mode and input power level:

 

Power supply mode

Input power level

·     Power adapter.

·     Multiple PoE+ ports.

·     Combination of PoE and PoE+ ports.

High

·     Single PoE+ port

·     Multiple PoE ports

Middle

Single PoE port

Low

An AP's support for MIMO modes and the USB interface varies by power level, as shown in Table 1.

Table 1 AP's support for MIMO modes and the USB interface

Input power level

Supported MIMO modes

Whether USB interfaces can be enabled

High

1×1, 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4.

Yes.

Middle

1×1, 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4.

Yes when the MIMO mode is 1×1 or 2×2.

Low

1×1.

No.

Restrictions and guidelines

When you configure the default input power level for the AP, make sure the setting matches its power mode. An excessively low input power level prevents the AP from operating correctly. An excessively high input power level causes overload of the AP in case of power shortage.

Procedure

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

2.     Configure the default input power level.

Wlan power-level default { high | low | middle }

By default, the default input power level is middle.

Enabling or disabling the USB interface

About this task

After you enable the USB interface for the AP, the USB interface becomes active only when the input power level of the AP is middle or high.

If the input power level is middle, the MIMO mode can only be 1×1 or 2×2 with the USB interface enabled. With the USB interface disabled, the MIMO mode can reach 4×4.

For information about input power levels, see "Configuring the default input power level." For information about MIMO modes, see "Configuring radio management."

Setting a LED lighting mode

About this task

You can configure LEDs on the AP to flash in the following modes:

·     quiet—All LEDs are off.

·     awake—All LEDs flash once every minute.

·     always-on—All LEDs are steady on.

·     normal—This mode can identify the running status of an AP.

Procedure

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

2.     Set a LED lighting mode.

wlan led-mode { always-on | awake | normal | quiet }

By default, the LED lighting mode is normal.

Specifying a region code

About this task

A region code determines characteristics such as available frequencies, available channels, and transmit power level. Set a valid region code before configuring the AP.

To prevent regulation violation caused by region code modification, lock the region code.

Procedure

1.     Enter system view.

system-view

2.     Enter global configuration view.

wlan global-configuration

3.     Specify a region code.

region-code code

By default, the region code is CN.

4.     (Optional.) Lock the region code.

region-code-lock enable

By default, the region code is not locked.

Enabling GPS information reporting

About this task

This feature enables an AP installed with GPS antennas to output GPS information at intervals and send the GPS information to the information center. For more information about the destination and output rules in the information center, see Network Management and Monitoring Configuration Guide.
