Configure basic services of the Fat AP on the AR
You can configure the Fat AP service to enable users to easily access a wireless network and move around within the coverage of the wireless network. The procedure for configuring the basic function of the Fat AP is as follows: 1. Configure the WLAN mode of the device, basic parameters of the AP, and the addresses allocated to STAs. 2. Configure WLAN service VAPs. After APs go online, you can configure service VAPs for the APs to provide differentiated WLAN services for users. The detailed configuration is as follows: Create a WMM profile and a radio profile, bind the WMM profile to the radio profile, create a security profile and a traffic profile, configure a WLAN-BSS interface and a WLAN service set, bind the WLAN-BSS interface, security profile, and traffic profile to the WLAN service set, configure a radio, and bind the radio profile and VAP to the radio. For details, see Example for Configuring Wireless User Access to a WLAN.

Differences Between Fat APs and Fit APs
The Fat AP provides wireless access for STAs in the autonomous architecture. A Fat AP provides wireless connection, security, and management functions. The Fit AP provides wireless access for STAs in the Fit AP architecture. A Fit AP provides only reliable, high-performance wireless access for STAs and depends on an AC to provide other functions.
