Industrial-grade devices for extended operation temperature range that can be used reliably over long periods of time in ambient temperatures from -40°C to 70°C.

Special mounting hardware for flexibility installation and the ability to disassemble and replace equipment.

OFDMA technology support

WA6628X series wireless access points support multiple access technology Orthogonal Frequency Division Management (OFDMA), which means access points can further divide wireless channels, using different subchannels to simultaneously transmit data to multiple terminals, which reduces the delays associated with contention for wireless interface resources from multiple users that are typical of traditional protocols. This improves quality of service for applications that require low latency, such as voice and video in multi-user configurations.

Spatial multiplexing

WA6628X series wireless access points support spatial multiplexing technology. Access points are able to simultaneously monitor and regulate transmit power by identifying unrelated messages that can lead to interference from adjacent channels when multiple users operate, and also significantly increase the efficiency of use of frequency spectrum resources.

Target Wake Time (TWT)

The WA6628X series wireless access points support TWT technology, which allows access points to uniformly schedule client wake-up and sleep periods. This not only reduces conflicts between terminals, but also reduces the number of unnecessary wake-ups of the terminal, which has a positive effect on its power consumption.

DL/UL MU-MIMO technology (Wi-Fi 6)

H3C’s WA6628X access points support DL/UL MU-MIMO, the most important feature of the 802.11ax standard. DL/UL MU-MIMO technology allows the access point to transmit data simultaneously to several devices, which significantly increases the efficiency of data exchange and the quality of connections.

Local forwarding

During operation WA6628X access points in dependent mode with packet forwarding over a wide area network (WAN), they are typically installed as data network access devices in branch offices, while wireless access controllers are located at headquarters.In this case, all user data are forwarded from the access point to the access controller and then centrally forwarded by the access controller. WA6628X access points are capable of forwarding packets from a wireless network to a wired network without redirecting them to the access controller locally, which significantly saves the bandwidth of distributed network channels.


Dual stack IPv4/IPv6 protocols (IPv6 support standard)

WA6628X access points are fully compatible with IPv6 protocol and support dual stack IPv4 protocols /IPv6. Existing IPv4 and IPv6 wired networks can be used in parallel and efficiently to register wireless networks on H3C WX or Cloudnet series access controllers so that they do not function as isolated information silos.

End-node access control mechanism (EAD)

H3C End user Admission Domination (EAD) combines network access security and endpoint security solutions to Only wireless clients that meet the mandatory requirements of corporate security policies can access the network; this reduces threats from infected wireless clients and generally improves the security level of the wireless network. 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 are infected or lacking the necessary patches.

Remote data collection and analysis

WA6628X access points can work as remote sensors and analyzer devices. They can capture Wi-Fi packets in the nearby airwaves and store them on a local device in real time for troubleshooting and analysis of optimization opportunities. Remote sensors can provide an isolated image for working channels or poll all channels depending on the requirements for monitoring and maintaining a wireless network.

RF Optimization Module (ROE)

WA6628X access points support RF Optimizing Engine (ROE), which effectively increases the number of simultaneous sessions in medium-to-high-density user environments, speeds up streaming media applications, and improves performance quality of service due to radio frequency optimization based on specified parameters and protocol. Its functionality includes fair multi-user access, mixed fair access, interference filtering, speed optimization, spectrum recommendations, IPv4/IPv6 multicast signal enhancement, per-packet power control, and intelligent bandwidth guarantees.


Intelligent load balancing on access points

WA6628X access points feature an intelligent load balancer that distributes the load depending on the number of concurrent users and traffic volumes . If a newly connected user exceeds the predefined load limit, the access point will check in real time the location of the wireless client, determine whether to provide access to this client through nearby access points with less load, and only reject the user’s connection if such access points are present. A distinctive feature of the H3C smart load balancing algorithm from existing load balancing mechanisms is that user access is rejected only if it is in an area of ​​overlapping radio coverage from different access points, so that the user’s connection is not denied if the load limit is exceeded, but There are no other access points nearby. This ensures maximum wireless network capacity without the chaotic behavior of the load balancing algorithm.

IoT capabilities

Existing Internet solutions of things (IoT) are becoming increasingly diversified. H3C WA6628X access points can be combined with H3C T300 modules to support various IoT protocols, including RFID, ZigBee, BLE, etc. The IoT port can connect up to ten T300 modules. They can control air sensors, PM2.5 dust sensors, trash container sensors and other elements of wireless infrastructure in cities. In addition, IoT terminals such as wristbands and RFID cards can communicate using data from the IoT and wireless network, making it easy to tailor the relevant services to suit users’ needs.

Cellular Coexistence Function (CCF)

H3C uses built-in hardware filters to 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, security and stability.

Real-Time Spectrum Security (RTSG)

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

RTSG console is embedded into the intelligent management system iMC (intelligent Management Center) 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 and audit reports.

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

Unified management of wired and wireless networks

iMC’s Wireless Service Manager (WSM) provides unified management of wired and wireless networks, allowing you to add wireless management functionality to your existing wired network management system. All WSM-based wireless networking products can be managed using an open management protocol.
