H3C WA6620X Series Next Generation 802.11ax Access Points for Indoor Installation

H3C WA6620X Series Next Generation 802.11ax Access Points for Indoor Installation

H3C’s WA6636 series access points are the latest generation of wireless access points based on the 802.11ax standard. They are built using innovative 802.11ax technology with three radio modules and provide transmission speeds at least 2 times faster than 802.11ac products. This makes the series devices suitable for organizing wireless networks in high-density user environments such as hotels, retail establishments and groups of corporate buildings. The devices are made in a compact housing and can be mounted on a wall or mounted on a ceiling.

 

Next generation Wi-Fi standard 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6)

The WA6636 access point with three radio modules implements 802.11ax technology, providing speed access up to 7.15 Gbps, sufficient for high-density applications and providing higher quality of service from the user’s point of view.

MU-MIMO technology in the channel to/from user

H3C WA6636 series access points support MU-MIMO technology in channel to and from user (DL/UL MU-MIMO), the most important feature of the 802.11ax standard. To/from MU-MIMO technology allows the access point to transmit data simultaneously to multiple devices, contrary to the sequential communication principle of traditional wireless networks, which improves frequency utilization, the number of active users and the quality of connections in high-density environments .

Access to the intelligent cloud and optimal cost of ownership of a wireless network

WA6636 series access points comply with the 802.11ax standard . They work with three radio modules and provide high-speed data transfer – at least 2 times faster than 802.11ac products under similar conditions. The WA6636 series offers easier management and maintenance using the H3C Oasis platform. Thanks to intelligent spectrum optimization technologies, this series provides mobile cloud access and can increase coverage, improve access density and stability, and achieve optimal total cost of ownership of a wireless network.

Orthogonal frequency multiple access division (OFDMA)

The 802.11ax standard uses OFDMA technology, which allows data to be transmitted simultaneously to several users. OFDMA involves dividing a channel into subchannels, called resource units (RUs), with specific subcarriers, and assigning such resource units to different users for simultaneous transmission. OFDMA technology provides parallel multi-user transmission and reduced latency by eliminating channel contention.

Spatial multiplexing

802.11 ax assigns a different color to each BSS, which helps the WA6636 detect adjacent channel interference and stop transmission. If the radio detects 802.11ax signals from a BSS with the same color, same as the color of the BSS of a given radio module, this is detected as interference from an adjacent channel and causes data transmission to stop. This allows you to optimize the use of the same frequencies and increase network capacity.

Target Wake Time (TWT)

The TWT mechanism improves energy efficiency and reduces contention for resources by increasing client sleep periods and the ability to coordinate the time at which clients access the transmission medium.

Support for IoT services

Considering the diverse use cases in the IoT era, the WA6636 access points provide an IoT port for installing H3C T300 IoT modules. They provide support for various short-range, low-power IoT services such as BLE, RFID, ZigBee and UWB. The IoT port on these access points can connect up to ten T300 modules. Both this IoT port and the network port support Link Aggregation Control (LACP) technology to improve availability and throughput.

Eco-friendly design

WA6636 APs adopt green solutions that support dynamic power reduction for MIMO (DMPS), advanced automatic power saving mechanisms (E-APSD), and intelligent detection of actual terminal device requirements. They are capable of dynamically adjusting the MIMO operating mode and effectively putting the terminals into sleep mode.

WA6636 access points have a green access point mode that provides the ability to put them to sleep individual radio modules and more careful control of the power saving mode.

WA6636 access points support innovative technology for power control at the individual packet level (PPC), which significantly reduces power consumption in the mode standby time and increases battery life of mobile devices.

Local forwarding

WA6636 access points support both centralized and and local data transfer. When using centralized data transfer, access points tunnel incoming data frames to the access controller, which forwards the data frames. When using local data transfer, the access points process the data frames themselves. Local data transfer mode significantly saves wired network bandwidth.

Dual stack of IPv4 and IPv6 protocols (standard IPv6 support)

WA6636 access points are fully IPv6 compatible and support dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stack. They are capable of automatically communicating with an access controller to provide wireless services over both an IPv4 and IPv6 network, so that they do not act as isolated information silos.

Real Time Spectrum Security (RTSG)

Real Time Spectrum Security (RTSG) program ) is H3C’s innovative software solution for professional health monitoring for wireless spectrum. H3C’s 802.11ax series access points support a built-in RF data acquisition module that enables the construction of tightly integrated, real-time spectrum monitoring and protection systems.

The RTSG console is integrated into the iMC (intelligent Management Center) intelligent management system and provides data acquisition through the CAPWAP tunnel management system and sensor access points. This allows you to monitor wireless signal quality, track trends, and generate tamper alerts 24×7. Active polling and RF interference detection (WiFi or non-WiFi) in each 2.4 GHz/5 GHz band provides graphical display of real-time spectral density FFT plot, spectrum plot, occupancy map, spectrum event plots, channel gain and increased interference. In addition, RTSG allows you to automatically determine the source of interference, detect the location of unauthorized wireless network equipment, and constantly maintain it in normal operating condition. Combined with the H3C iMC IAR (Intelligent Analysis Report) module, it can provide a complete history of coverage quality in an area, including tracking and playback of its parameters, and automatically generate tailored trend reports, compliance analysis reports and reports on audit.

Depending on the user’s wireless network monitoring requirements, the RTSG solution can be deployed in local mode or monitoring mode. In local mode, effective spectrum protection is implemented without affecting normal user connectivity and data packet forwarding.

Cellular Coexistence Function (CCF)

H3C uses built-in hardware filters that minimize the impact of interference from 3G/4G cellular networks.

Anchor Access Controller Mode

Anchor AC mode is designed for networks of any size, including small and medium enterprise networks. In anchor access controller mode, the access point can act as a virtual controller for the entire network.

Cloud management

Points H3C cloud-managed access points are designed based on the Cloudnet platform, which allows administrators to manage cloud access points directly, such as viewing the status of cloud access points in real time and downloading configurations from the cloud to cloud access points. This significantly improves network efficiency, increases its security and stability.

End Device Access Control (EAD)

One ​​of the key components of the H3C iMC management system, the EAD endpoint access control engine integrates network access security and endpoint security solutions to ensure that only wireless clients can access the network , meeting the mandatory requirements of corporate security policies. When used in conjunction with a security policy server, the solution can send reminders to users, isolate and disconnect them from the network if systems become infected or are out of patches. Only wireless clients that meet security policy requirements are allowed on the network. This increases the level of security of the wireless network as a whole.

Remote data collection and analysis

WA6636 access points can act as the role of remote sensors to collect and analyze data in a wireless network, collecting information about channels and transmitting information to a local device for further analysis. This is often necessary to implement monitoring and maintenance of a wireless network.

RF Optimization Module (ROE)

The ROE module uses RF optimizations at the feature and protocol levels to improve speed and quality of service in medium-to-high-density user environments and streaming media applications. Its functionality includes fair multi-user access, mixed fair access, interference filtering, speed optimization, band navigation with the ability to prioritize the 5 GHz radio so that clients with 5 GHz capabilities connect to the 5 GHz radio first and then to 2.4 GHz, multicast optimization (IPv4/IPv6), power control at the individual packet level and intelligent guarantees of certain throughput. RF management function automatically assigns channel and power level, ensures fair airtime distribution and frees the access point from all sources of radio interference to create reliable and high-performance wireless WLAN networks.

Intelligent load balancing h3>

WA6636 access points support load balancing based on sessions and traffic. When the access point’s upper load limit is reached, the access controller rejects join requests from new clients and redirects clients to other access points with less load. A distinctive feature of the H3C intelligent load balancing algorithm from existing load balancing mechanisms is that load balancing is applied only to clients that are in an area of ​​overlapping radio coverage from different access points. This allows you to achieve maximum wireless network capacity.
