Is redundancy used or a proximate AP selected as a repeater AP to ensure that other WDS bridges work properly when the middle AP is faulty or powered off

3

When the root or middle node is faulty, uplinks between this node and downstream nodes are disconnected. Limited by frequency resources, Huawei network bridge solution does not use the redundancy mode. It is recommended that mains be used or the UPS be added to provide power for the AP.

NOTE:
Starting from V200R003C00, the AP can support Mesh functions. APs enabled with Mesh functions can set up radio connections. Mesh links can work as backup of each other. If a neighbor node of an MP fails, the MP can select an optimal link from candidate links to continue data transmission.

In point-to-multipoint WDS networking, if the root or middle node is faulty, links between this node and downstream nodes are disconnected, leading to network breakdown. Limited by frequency resources, Huawei network bridge solution does not use the redundancy mode. It is recommended that mains be used or the UPS be added to provide power for APs. APs enabled with Mesh functions can set up radio connections, and Mesh links can work as backup of each other.

If multiple users deploy APs in the same area, can these APs work properly
WLAN signals are transmitted on the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands. If multiple APs are deployed in the same area and work on overlapping channels, co-channel interference will cause signal disorder. As a result, users in this area cannot obtain expected wireless network access.

Why users are associated with other APs when AP density is high
The reason is that the interval between sending Beacon frames is long. A STA obtains peripheral wireless network information in either of the following ways: - Passive scan: A STA listens on the Beacon frames sent by APs to obtain wireless network information. - Active scan: A STA actively sends a Probe Request frame and receives Probe Response frames to obtain wireless signals. A STA can actively and passively scan wireless networks. When a STA passively scans wireless networks and the AP density is high, the STA can receive Beacon frames from another AP, not the nearest AP and perform association.

How can I activate a suspended AP when the AP uses the PoE power supply
APs provide a self-recovery mechanism. When software or hardware on an AP is suspended, the AP automatically recovers.

Can Huawei APs providing the WDS function be interconnected to non-Huawei devices
In WDS networking, Huawei APs cannot be interconnected to non-Huawei devices.
