Introduction

The following information provides an example for configuring WA4320-ACN-B APs to realize iBeacon management.

Prerequisites

This document applies to Comware 7-based access controllers and access points. Procedures and information in the examples might be slightly different depending on the software or hardware version of the access controllers and access points.

The configuration examples in this document were created and verified in a lab environment, and all the devices were started with the factory default configuration. When you are working on a live network, make sure you understand the potential impact of every command on your network.

This document assumes that you have basic knowledge of IoT AP and WLAN location.

Example: Configuring iBeacon management

Network configuration

As shown in Figure 1, configure the AP to manage the iBeacon device. The AP collects BLE information and sends the information to the location server on the IMC server for calculation. Then, users can obtain information including electric quantity and RSSI of the iBeacon device. The AP also assigns management orders from the server to the iBeacon device.

Figure 1 Network diagram

 

Restrictions and guidelines

Use the serial ID labeled on the AP's rear panel to specify an AP.

Procedures

Configuring the AC

1.     Configure interfaces on the AC:

# Create VLAN 100 and VLAN-interface 100, and assign an IP address to the VLAN interface. The AC will use this IP address to establish a CAPWAP tunnel with the AP.

<AC> system-view

[AC] vlan 100

[AC-vlan100] quit

[AC] interface vlan-interface 100

[AC-Vlan-interface100] ip address 192.1.0.1 16

[AC-Vlan-interface100] quit

# Create VLAN 200 and VLAN-interface 200, and configure the VLAN interface to use DHCP for IP address acquisition.

<AC> system-view

[AC] vlan 200

[AC-vlan200] quit

[AC] interface vlan-interface 200

[AC-Vlan-interface200] ip address dhcp-alloc

[AC-Vlan-interface200] quit

# Configure GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 that connects the AC and the switch as a trunk port, remove the port from VLAN 1, and assign it to VLANs 100 and 200.

[AC] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1

[AC-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] port link-type trunk

[AC-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] undo port trunk permit vlan 1

[AC-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] port trunk permit vlan 100 200

[AC-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] quit

2.     Create a manual AP named ap1, and specify the AP model and serial ID

[AC] wlan ap ap1 model WA4320-ACN-B

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] serial-id 210236A35VA11A100678ACNB

3.     Configure a module:

# Enter the view of module 1.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] module 1

# Specify the supported module type BLE for module 1, and enable module 1.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1-module-1] type ble

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1-module-1] module enable

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1-module-1] quit

4.     Configure BLE location:

# Enable BLE location.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] rfid-tracking ble enable

# Set the IPv4 address and port number of the location server to 192.2.0.1 and 1145, respectively. In this example, the IP address of the BLE location server is the IMC server's IP address obtained through DHCP.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] rfid-tracking ble engine-address 192.2.0.1 engine-port 1145

# Enable BLE neighbor list reporting for AP ap1.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] rfid-tracking ble report enable

# Configure the AP to send BLE neighbor list reports to the location server every 10 seconds.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] rfid-tracking ble report interval 10

# Specify the default password for deploying configuration to iBeacon devices as AprilBrother in plaintext form. Make sure the specified password is the same as the factory password of the iBeacon device.

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] rfid-tracking ble command-password simple AprilBrother

[AC-wlan-ap-ap1] quit

Configuring the switch

1.     Configure interfaces on the switch:

# Create VLAN 100 and VLAN-interface 100, and assign an IP address to the VLAN interface. The switch will use this VLAN to communicate with the AC.

<Switch> system-view

[Switch] vlan 100

[Switch-vlan100] quit

[Switch] interface vlan-interface 100

[Switch-Vlan-interface100] ip address 192.1.0.2 16

[Switch-Vlan-interface100] quit

# Create VLAN 200 and VLAN-interface 200, and assign an IP address to the VLAN interface. The switch will use this VLAN to forward traffic for the IMC server.

[Switch] vlan 200

[Switch-vlan200] quit

[Switch] interface vlan-interface 200

[Switch-Vlan-interface200] ip address 192.2.0.2 24

[Switch-Vlan-interface200] quit

# Configure GigabitEthernet 1/0/1 that connects the switch and the AC as a trunk port, remove the port from VLAN 1, and assign the trunk port to VLANs 100 and 200.

[Switch] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/1

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] port link-type trunk

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] undo port trunk permit vlan 1

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] port trunk permit vlan 100 200

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/1] quit

# Configure GigabitEthernet 1/0/2 that connects the switch and the IMC server as an access port, and assign the port to VLAN 200.

[Switch] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/2

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/2] port link-type access

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/2] port access vlan 200

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/2] quit

# Configure GigabitEthernet 1/0/3 that connects the switch and AP as an access port, and assign the port to VLAN 100.

[Switch] interface gigabitethernet 1/0/3

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/3] port link-type access

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/3] port access vlan 100

# Enable PoE on GigabitEthernet 1/0/3.

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/3] poe enable

[Switch-GigabitEthernet1/0/3] quit

2.     Configure DHCP services:

# Enable DHCP.

[Switch] dhcp enable

# Create a DHCP address pool named 1 to assign an IP address to the AP.

[Switch] dhcp server ip-pool 1

# In DHCP address pool 1, specify subnet 192.1.0.0/16 for dynamic allocation, exclude IP address 192.1.0.1 from dynamic allocation, and specify gateway IP address 192.1.0.2.

[Switch] dhcp server ip-pool 1

[Switch-dhcp-pool-1] network 192.1.0.0 mask 255.255.0.0

[Switch-dhcp-pool-1] forbidden-ip 192.1.0.1

[Switch-dhcp-pool-1] gateway-list 192.1.0.2

[Switch-dhcp-pool-1] quit

# Create a DHCP address pool named 2, and specify subnet 192.2.0.0/24 and gateway address 192.2.0.2 for the AC's VLAN-interface 200 and the IMC server.

[Switch] dhcp server ip-pool 2

[Switch-dhcp-pool-2] network 192.2.0.0 mask 255.255.255.0

[Switch-dhcp-pool-2] gateway-list 192.2.0.2

[Switch-dhcp-pool-2] quit
