Do APs support 5G-prior access

12

Single-radio APs do not support 5G-prior access. To support 5G-prior access, APs and STAs must support dual bands.

The AP2010DN does not support the 5G-prior access function.

Configure 5G-prior access. When an AP and STA support both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the AP can request the STA to associate with the 5 GHz radio first. When the AP receives a Probe Request frame from the STA, it checks the radio receiving the Probe Request frame. If the Probe Request frame is received by the 2.4 GHz radio, the AP does not return a Probe Response frame. If the Probe Request frame is received by the 5 GHz radio, the AP returns a Probe Response frame. Then the STA associates with the 5 GHz radio. If only the 2.4 GHz radio receives 25 Probe Request frames continuously but the 5 GHz radio does not receive any, the AP returns a Probe Response frame through the 2.4 GHz radio. Then the STA associates with the 2.4 GHz radio. To implement the 5G-prior access function, an AP must have the same SSID and security policy on the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz radios. In addition, it is recommended that the power of the 5 GHz radio configured on the AP be greater than that of the 2.4 GHz radio.

How to configure 5G-prior access on an AC
In 5G-prior access mode, if an AP and a STA support both the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the AP can request the STA to associate with the 5 GHz radio preferentially. On the live network, most STAs support both the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, and a STA usually associates with an AP's 2.4 GHz radio by default when connecting to the Internet. To connect to the 5 GHz radio, you need to manually select the 5 GHz radio. When the 2.4 GHz frequency band has many users or severe interference, the 5 GHz frequency band can provide a better access service for wireless users. The 5G-prior access function enables STAs to preferentially associate with the 5 GHz radio. 5G-prior access is implemented as follows: When an AP receives a Probe Request frame from a STA, the AP checks the radio receiving the frame. If the Probe Request frame is received by the 2.4 GHz radio, the AP does not send a Probe Response frame. If the Probe Request frame is received by the 5 GHz radio, the AP sends a Probe Response frame immediately. Then the STA associates with the 5 GHz radio. If only the 2.4 GHz radio receives 25 Probe Request frames continuously but the 5 GHz radio does not receive any Probe Request frame, the AP returns a Probe Response frame on the 2.4 GHz radio. Then the STA associates with the 2.4 GHz radio.

Do APs support WPS
Huawei APs and ACs do not support WPS.

All Huawei APs support radio calibration. Currently, 80 MHz calibration bandwidth is supported by the AP2030DN, AP3030DN, AP4030DN, AP4030DN-E, AP4130DN, AP5030DN, AP5030DN-S, AP5130DN, AP7030DE, AP9131DN, AP9132DN, AD9430DN-24 (including the mapping RUs), AD9430DN-12(including the mapping RUs), AP9330DN, AP8030DN, and AP8130DN.

Is the number of access users in dual-band mode twice the number of access users in single-band mode
If there are sufficient system resources, the number of access users in dual-band mode is twice the number of access users in single-band mode. Limited by system resources, the number of access users in dual-band mode may not be twice the number of access users in single-band mode.
