How to isolate STAs associated with the same SSID of an AP

4

Huawei APs support local Layer 2 isolation. After Layer 2 isolation is enabled, local STAs cannot communicate at Layer 2, and data can only be transmitted between uplink ports and VAP ports. To enable Layer 2 isolation, configure it on an AC.

How can I separate two STAs that connect to the same AP and SSID
Huawei APs support Layer 2 isolation. When Layer 2 isolation is enabled, STAs cannot communicate at Layer 2. Only the upstream interface and virtual access point (VAP) interface can exchange data. You can enable Layer 2 isolation on an AC.

STAs are associated with other APs in multi-AP scenarios
In multi-AP scenarios, STAs may be associated with other APs when a long Beacon frame transmission interval is set. STAs obtain information about peripheral WLANs in either of the following ways: - Passive scan: STAs scan Beacon frames sent by surrounding APs to obtain WLAN information. - Active scan: STAs actively send Probe Request frames and receive Probe Response frames to obtain wireless signals. STA can actively or passively scan surrounding WLANs. When a STA passively scans WLANs and APs are densely deployed, the STA can receive Beacon frames from another AP but not the nearest AP, and perform association.

Sort SSIDs on STAs
The sorting of SSIDs is completed by STAs. APs cannot specify the SSID sorting.

What STA information can be displayed on a WLAN device
1. Number of STAs associated with an AP For V200R005, run the display station assoc-num command. For V200R006, run the display station ap-id xx command. 2. STA information For V200R005, run the display station assoc-info sta sta-mac command. For V200R006, run the display station sta-mac sta-mac command. The display contents vary depending on versions. The following uses V200R005C10 as an example: display station assoc-info sta d420-6df4-f37e Station mac-address : d420-6df4-f37e //STA mac Station ip-address : 0.0.0.0 //STA IP Station gateway : 0.0.0.0 Associated SSID : jsldoc //SSID Station online time(ddd:hh:mm:ss) : 000:00:04:20 //Online time The upstream SNR(dB) : 30.0 The upstream aggregate receive power(dBm) : -79.0 Station connect rate(Mbps) : 23 //Rate Station connect channel : 1 //Channel Station inactivity time(ddd:hh:mm:ss) : 000:00:00:00 ...... Station's RSSI(dBm) : -66 //Single strength Station's Noise(dBm) : -109 Station's radio mode : 11b //Network type Station's AP ID : 6 //AP ID (supported only by V200R005C00) Station's Radio ID : 0 //0 indicates 2.4G, and 1 indicates 5G (supported only by V200R005C00). Station's Authentication Method : OPEN Station's Cipher Type : NO CIPHER Station's User Name : d4206df4f37e Station's Vlan ID : 28 Station's Channel Band-width : 20MHz Station's asso BSSID : dcd2-fc9a-2110 Station's state : Asso with auth Station's Qos Mode : NULL Station's HT Mode : - Station's MCS value : 0 Station's NSS value : 0 Station's Short GI : support Station's roam state : No

Does an AP configured with multiple SSIDs support the same number of access users as an AP configured with one SSID
Yes. An AP configured with multiple SSIDs supports the same number of access users as an AP configured with one SSID.
