802.11n and its configuration

802.11n and its configuration.
As the core of the 802.11n physical layer, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology enables 802.11n to send multiple radio signals during wireless transmission and form multiple spatial streams using multipath effect. Therefore, the data transmission speed is greatly increased. In addition, MIMO helps 802.11n obtain diversity gain and multiplexing gain, effectively extending the coverage distance and improving the transmission rate. The 802.11n standard defines one to four spatial streams for MIMO technology. For example, two spatial streams improve the transmission rate by two times, and four spatial streams by four times, reaching 600 Mbit/s. The number of spatial streams varies on different products.
802.11n can operate on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands.
Delay will occur at the receiving end when wireless signals are transmitted in space because of multipath. If subsequent data blocks are transmitted fast, these data blocks will interfere with original ones. The general inverter (GI) is used to avoid such interference. The common GI is 800 us, while the short GI defined in the 802.11n standard is 400 us, which increases the physical connection rate by 11%.
Currently, the mainstream AP products are all 802.11n-compliant.
Configuration:
[HUAWEI]wlan
[HUAWEI-WLAN-view]radio-profile name test
[HUAWEI-WLAN-radio-prof-test]channel-mode fixed //Manually configure the channel.
[HUAWEI-WLAN-radio-prof-test]80211n guard-interval-mode short //Change the mode to short preamble to increase rate
[HUAWEI-WLAN-radio-prof-test]undo legacy-station enable //Reject access of traditional 802.11a/b/g STAs (supported in V200R005).
[HUAWEI-WLAN-radio-prof-test]quit
[HUAWEI-WLAN-view]ap xx radio 1 //Enter the AP view.
Or,
[HUAWEI]interface wlan-radio 0/0/1 //Enter the radio interface for Fat APs.
[HUAWEI-WLAN-radio-0/0/1]channel 40mhz xx
xx can be set to 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64, 149, 153, 157, or 161.
Note:
1. You are not advised to configure the 40 MHz mode on the 2.4 GHz frequency band.
2. The security profile must be configured as WPA2 + CCMP, because WEP is incompatible with 802.11n, and TKIP may affect the user access rate.
