Does a WDS network support bridging from cameras

7

In WDS networking, APs are connected through WDS 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 WDS service because it is used to deploy wireless bridging between APs.

Does a Mesh network support bridging from cameras
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.

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.

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.

In point-to-multipoint WDS networking, how to ensure that other bridge nodes work properly if one AP is faulty or powered off
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 a neighbor node of an MP fails, the MP can select an optimal link from candidate links to continue data transmission.

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.
