Huawei AC650-128AP  Wireless Access Controller

Huawei AC650-128AP Wireless Access Controller

The AC650-128AP is a small-capacity box wireless access controller (WAC) for small office home office (SOHO) enterprises. It
can manage up to 128 access points (APs) and integrates the GE Ethernet switch function, achieving integrated access for
wired and wireless users. Also, the AC650-128AP features high scalability and offers users considerable flexibility in configuring
the number of managed APs. With these strengths, this WAC can be used to construct small and medium campus networks,
enterprise office networks, wireless metropolitan area networks (MANs), and hotspot coverage networks

  • Product Technical Details

  • Features

    Large-capacity and high-performance design
    ⚫ Manages up to 128 APs, meeting requirements of SOHO campuses.
    ⚫ Provides 2 x 10GE optical interfaces and 10 x GE electrical interfaces, supporting up to 10 Gbps forwarding performance.

    SmartRadio for AP air interface optimization
    ⚫ Load balancing during smart roaming: The load balancing algorithm enables load balancing detection between APs on the
    network after STA roaming to adjust the STA load on each AP, improving network stability.
    ⚫ Intelligent dynamic frequency assignment (DFA) technology: The DFA algorithm is used to automatically detect adjacentchannel and co-channel interference, and identify any redundant 2.4 GHz radios. Through automatic inter-AP negotiation, a
    redundant radio is automatically switched to another mode (dual-5G AP models support 2.4G-to-5G switchover) or is disabled to
    reduce 2.4 GHz co-channel interference and increase the system capacity.
    ⚫ Intelligent conflict optimization technology: Dynamic enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) and airtime scheduling
    algorithms are used to schedule the channel occupation time and service priority of each user. This ensures that each user is
    assigned a relatively equal amount of time for using channel resources and user services are scheduled in an orderly manner,
    improving service processing efficiency and user experience.
    Various roles
    ⚫ The WAC has a built-in Portal/AAA server and can provide Portal/802.1X authentication for users, protecting customer
    Flexible networking
    ⚫ The WAC can be deployed in in-path, off-path, bridge, or mesh network mode, and supports both centralized and local
    forwarding modes.
    ⚫ The WAC and APs can be connected across a Layer 2 or Layer 3 network. In addition, network address translation (NAT)
    can be deployed when APs are deployed on the private network and the WAC is deployed on the public network.
    ⚫ The WAC is compatible with Huawei’s 802.11n, 802.11ac and 802.11ax APs and supports the hybrid networking of
    802.11n, 802.11ac and 802.11ax APs for simple scalability

    Built-in application identification server
    ⚫ Supports Layer 4 to Layer 7 application identification and can identify over 6000 applications, including common office
    applications and P2P download applications, such as Lync, FaceTime, YouTube, and Facebook.
    ⚫ Supports application-based policy control technologies, including traffic blocking, traffic limiting, and priority adjustment
    ⚫ Supports automatic application expansion in the application signature database, without the need of a software upgrade.

    Built-in visualized network management platform
    ⚫ The AC650-128AP has a built-in web system that is easy to configure and provides comprehensive monitoring and
    intelligent diagnosis.
    Health-centric one-page monitoring, visualized KPIs
    ⚫ One page integrates the summary and real-time statistics. KPIs are displayed on graphs, including user, radio and AP
    performance, enabling users to extract useful information from the massive amount of data, while also being instantly aware of
    the device and network status.
