Example for configuring the WLAN service using WDS technology

9

The wireless distribution system (WDS) connects two or more wired or wireless LANs wirelessly to establish a large network to transmit data.

How to configure the WDS function for a WLAN device
Fat APs do not support the WDS function. Currently, the WDS function is supported only in the AC+Fit AP architecture. However, in this architecture, the AP6310SN-GN, AP2010DN, AP2030DN, AP7030DE, AP9330DN, AD9430DN-24 (including connected RUs), and AD9430DN-12 (including connected RUs) do not support the WDS function. In WDS networking, Huawei APs cannot be interconnected to non-Huawei devices. For WDS configuration in the AC+Fit AP architecture, see: V200R005: WDS Configuration. V200R006: WDS Configuration.

Do WLAN devices support the WDS function

In WDS networking, Huawei APs cannot be interconnected to non-Huawei devices. For WDS configuration in the AC+Fit AP architecture, see (the R5 version is used as an example): V200R005: WDS Configuration. V200R006: WDS Configuration.

WLAN service set
WLAN service set A wireless network consists of radio profiles and service sets. - A radio profile contains WMM (QoS) profiles. - A service set contains traffic and security profiles, SSIDs, and WLAN-ESS/WLAN-BSS interfaces (wireless air interfaces). Service VLANs must be configured on ACs. - The wireless air interface is the logical interface for APs to connect to a STA. Typically, the wireless air interface is configured to work in hybrid mode.

Configure WDS on AR routers
All the AR routers except the AR502EG-L*, AR502EGW-L*, AR530 series routers, AR550 series routers, and AR2500 series routers support WDS. A wireless distribution system (WDS) connects two or more wired or wireless LANs wirelessly to establish a large network to transmit data. To complete the configuration of WDS, perform the following steps in sequence: Create a WMM profile, configure a radio profile, bind the WMM profile to the radio profile, add an AP, bind a radio to the radio profile, enable the bridge function, configure the bridge mode, configure a security profile and define WPA2+PSK+CCMP, configure a bridge profile and bind it to the radio, configure bridge whitelist (optional), configure parameters for the AP wired interface, configure STP (optional), configure parameters sent to the AP, and check the configuration. For details, see WDS Configuration.
