Does a Mesh network support bridging from cameras

11

In Mesh networking, APs are connected through Mesh links, so that remote APs can go online on the AC wirelessly. After the APs go online successfully, the AC can deliver configurations to them.
If you need to connect a camera wirelessly, ensure that the camera supports wireless access. You must configure WLAN coverage services for the AP, so that the wireless camera can access the WLAN like laptops or mobile phones. Do not configure the Mesh service because it is used to deploy wireless bridging between APs.

Do WLAN devices support the Mesh function
Fat APs do not support the Mesh function. From V200R005C10, the AP9130DN (Fat AP) can function as a vehicle-mounted AP in vehicle-ground communication scenarios. Because vehicle-mounted APs communicate with trackside APs through Mesh links, the Mesh function can be configured for Fat APs since V200R005C10. However, Fat APs can be used only as vehicle-mounted APs in vehicle-ground communication scenarios, but cannot be used for bridging. Currently, the Mesh 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 Mesh function. For more information about Mesh configurations, see: V200R005: Mesh Configuration. V200R006: Mesh Configuration.

Do all Huawei APs support Mesh functions
Starting from V200R003C00, all Huawei APs support the Mesh function except the AD9430DN-24 (including the mapping RRUs), AD9430DN-12 (including the mapping RRUs), AP7030DE, AP9330DN, AP6310SN-GN, AP2030DN and AP2010DN.

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.
