With increasing complexity of wireless local area networks WLANs , there is a growing need to add more access points while keeping the entire operation simple and easy. Typical access points tend to carry configurations which need to be setup individually. If these get damaged or need replacement, the new access points need to be configured again to match the existing setup. With a frequent need to add or remove access points, a new concept is catching ground in this space — it is called thin access points. Typically, thin access points can perform all the functions of a regular access point but their configuration is controlled by a master switch. It has to be deployed in the network in conjunction with DWS a wireless switch controller with 24 GE ports.

Quick Links. See also: Administrator's Manual , Configuration Manual. Table of Contents. Configure AP Network Settings Pool Configuration The following steps will guide you through the configuration of the Wireless Switch and the Access Point.

Device Subnet Wireless Switch Page 5: Configure The Dhcp Server Page 6: Pool Configuration 1. Pool Configuration This section describes how to configure the address pool for the wireless clients. Select Pool Configuration in the Navigation tree. Select create and specify the following settings: a.

Pool Name — GuestPool b. Type of Binding - Dynamic c. Page 7: Acl Configuration 1. All other types of traffic is allowed. Page 9: Wireless Configuration 1. Since the deployment is an L2 Edge and there are no subnet boundaries to cross, the switch can use the network management IP address for the wireless functions Note: the wireless switch component uses an IP address to manage the APs and peer-switches.

Page Device Connections 1. Device Connections At this point, all the devices are ready to be connected. Page Save Configuration 1. Save Configuration To save the switch configuration, select Save Changes from the tool bar.

Page Verify The Configuration 1. Verify the Configuration 1. Using a wireless client, connect to the Guest Network. The ping should pass. Page 13 the profile or an AP comes online into managed state after the profile changes are submitted. The Channel adjustment algorithm may be triggered periodically or manually.

To manually adjust the channel plan, use the fol l owing steps: 1. Select the appropriate channel of the AP radio and change it to the desired channel on the next screen. Page Power Adjustment 1. Select Radio Details tab to check the power level. Select the Manual Power Adjustments tab and then the Start button to start the process click the Apply button to apply new power adjustment You may change the power of the AP radio by selecting the Radio tab of the Basic Setup and changing the Initial Power to the desired setting and click on submit.

Page Load Balancing 1. Load Balancing The Wireless Switch performs load balancing on a per radio basis by tracking the wireless bandwidth utilization. The maximum bandwidth utilization is configured in the Radio tab of the Basic Setup. If the utilization reaches the configured threshold then new client associations are rejected.

Network: Page Configuring Lan Settings Each connected AP is in a different subnet, so you need to configure two separate VLAN routing interfaces and configure an IP address for each interface.

Page 20 1. VLAN Status Page 23 5. IP Address: Subnet Mask: Routing Mode: Enable 6. Click Submit. Page Enable Global Routing 2. Enable Global Routing You need to enable the routing mode to allow the switch to operate as a L3 device in this scenario. Select Enable from the Routing Mode drop-down menu and click Submit. Page Dhcp Server 2. Page Acl Configuration The screen refreshes with additional fields. Page 27 Page 28 From the Rule drop-down menu, select Create.

Page Configuring Wlan Settings 2. Use the following steps to configure the Wireless Switch and the APs. Page 30 5. Select the Change the following Network parameters and select Submit: a. VLAN — c. Page 31 SSID tab. Change the follow ing parameters and select Submit: a. Page Save Configuration 8. The ping should fail because of the ACL. This manual is also suitable for: Dwlap Dws series.

Download the datasheet. This enables you to deploy a very cost effective, scalable and highly available wireless network with high level of security to a minimum of time and resources. The Access Point is entirely controlled from the Wireless Switch, ie no configuration data is kept at AP level, adding a layer of protection in case of theft or vandalism. If an AP needs swapping, the replacement AP automatically inherits the same configuration, making the process seamless.
