Forwarding mode supported by the AR used as the AC

12

The AR supports only local forwarding of users' service data packets, and does not support centralized forwarding for the users' service data packets.

AP types supported by AR routers
You can run the display ap-type all command to check all Fit AP types supported by the AR router by default. By default, AR routers support Huawei Fit APs. The example is as follows: AR V200R008 version:display ap-type all -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ID Type -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 17 AP6010SN-GN 19 AP6010DN-AGN 21 AP6310SN-GN 23 AP6510DN-AGN 25 AP6610DN-AGN 27 AP7110SN-GN 28 AP7110DN-AGN 29 AP5010SN-GN 30 AP5010DN-AGN 31 AP3010DN-AGN 33 AP6510DN-AGN-US 34 AP6610DN-AGN-US 35 AP5030DN 36 AP5130DN 37 AP7030DE 38 AP2010DN 39 AP8130DN 40 AP8030DN 42 AP9330DN 43 AP4030DN 44 AP4130DN 45 AP3030DN 46 AP2030DN 47 AP9131DN 48 AP3010DN-V2 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total: 25 AR V200R009 version:display ap-type all -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ID Type -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 17 AP6010SN-GN 19 AP6010DN-AGN 21 AP6310SN-GN 23 AP6510DN-AGN 25 AP6610DN-AGN 27 AP7110SN-GN 28 AP7110DN-AGN 29 AP5010SN-GN 30 AP5010DN-AGN 31 AP3010DN-AGN 33 AP6510DN-AGN-US 34 AP6610DN-AGN-US 35 AP5030DN 36 AP5130DN 37 AP7030DE 38 AP2010DN 39 AP8130DN 40 AP8030DN 42 AP9330DN 43 AP4030DN 44 AP4130DN 45 AP3030DN 46 AP2030DN 47 AP9131DN 49 AP5030DN-S 50 AP3010DN-V2 51 AP4030DN-E 68 AP1010SN 69 AP2050DN 70 AP2050DN-E 71 AP8130DN-W 73 AP2050DN-S 75 AP4050DN 76 AP4051DN 77 AP4151DN 78 AP4050DN-S 79 AP4051DN-S 80 AP8050DN 81 AP8150DN 82 AP8050DN-S -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total: 40

Is service data aggregated on an AC? What is the recommended forwarding mode and why
Service data can be forwarded locally or over a tunnel. Service data is aggregated on an AC only when it is forwarded over a tunnel. You can choose the forwarding mode according to the site requirements. When a large number of concurrent users exist, it is recommended that service data be forwarded locally.

Dose the AR used as the AC support V2R5 AP
AR routers of V200R00R6C10 and later versions support the AP of V200R005C10. AR routers of V200R003 and V200R005 support the AP of V200R002C00.

Data forwarding mode
Data forwarding mode: - Centralized forwarding (also called tunnel forwarding): APs set up control tunnels and data tunnels with an AC. Control data between the AP and AC and service data from WLAN users are encapsulated in the control tunnel and data tunnel, respectively. After the service data reaches the APs, it must be sent to the AC through the data tunnel first and then be forwarded at L2 and L3. - Direct forwarding (also called local forwarding): APs only set up control tunnels with an AC. After the service data reaches the APs, it directly enters the wired network through the switch that connects to the APs and then be forwarded at L2 and L3. In summary, tunnel forwarding facilitates centralized management and control, and service data must be forwarded through an AC, reducing packet forwarding efficiency and burdening the AC. For direct forwarding, packet forwarding efficiency is high. You can select either of the forwarding mode as required. AC deployment - Bypass mode ACs are directly connected to aggregation switches or core switches in bypass mode. If two ACs provide 1+1 backup, they connect to the aggregation switch or core switch. - Establish an independent AC management area that connects to the core switch in bypass mode. In actual networking, an aggregation switch is connected to the core switch in bypass mode, and all the ACs are connected to the aggregation switch. Verify the forwarding mode by checking that an AC serves as the gateway or running the display forward-type service xx command.
