    Deployment Scenarios

    The AP is applicable to open outdoor areas with high user densities, such as squares, residential communities, schools, and gardens, or outdoor places that have high demands for wireless access, such as pedestrian malls. This AP can be used together with outdoor antenna to provide long-distance network coverage and implements stable radio backhaul in a wireless distribution system.

    The AP6510DN-AGN can work as a Fat AP or Fit AP and switch flexibly between the two working modes based on the network plan.

    When the wireless network scale is small, customers need to purchase only AP products and set the APs to work as Fat APs. As the network scale expands, tens of or hundreds of APs exist on the network. To simplify network management, customers are advised to purchase ACs to perform centralized management on the APs and set the APs to work as Fit APs.

    Fit AP networking (AP mode)

    Huawei AP6510 Fit AP networking

    In this networking, the AP functions as a fit AP and provides only data forwarding functions. The AC is responsible for user access, AP go-online, AP management, authentication, routing, security, and QoS.

    Fit AP networking (WDS mode: point-to-point)

    Huawei AP6510 Fit AP WDS point-to-point

    Fit AP networking (WDS mode: point-to-multipoint)

    Huawei AP6510 Fit AP networking WDS point-to-multipoint

    In this networking, the AP connects two or more independently wired or wireless LANs through wireless links to construct a network on which users can exchange data. In Wireless Distribution System (WDS) mode, the AP supports point-to-point (P2P) and point-to-multipoint (P2MP) networking modes. With 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the AP can implement wireless bridging and access functions.

    Fit AP mesh networking

    Huawei AP6510 Fit AP Mesh Networking

    On the preceding network, APs function as mesh points (MPs) and are fully-meshed to establish an auto-configured and self-healing wireless mesh network (WMN). APs with the gateway function can work as the mesh portal points (MPPs) through which the WMN can provide access to the Internet. Terminals connect to APs to access the WMN. The WMN uses dedicated mesh routing protocols to guarantee high transmission quality and is more applicable to scenarios that require high bandwidth and highly stable Internet connections.

    Fat AP networking

    Huawei AP6510 Fat AP networking

    On the preceding network, the device functions as a Fat AP to implement functions such as user access, authentication, data security, service forwarding, and QoS.
