Point to Multipoint bridged network configuration
Point-to-MultiPoint

In a bridged (layer 2) network could be used in WDS or ipoll modes. Ipoll mode should be used when AP and all stations are Deliberant products otherwise select WDS mode. Recommended maximum stations per AP can be from 60 to 70.

Configuration

Change device’s IP address (can be static or dynamic), enable IP alias if necessary. Default ip address could be left because it is used for device management.

Point-to-MultiPoint

Access Point Wirelles section configuration steps:

  • Select country code
  • Select wireless mode: Access point WDS
  • Define SSID
  • Choose IEEE mode:
  • N if you use 802.11n capable radios
  • A/N mixed or B/G/N mixed if you also use legacy radios in your network
  • Set channel to “Auto”
  • Set Max data rate with Auto data rate “Dynamic algorithm”
  • Enable Security if necessary
  • Set ACK timeout based on the maximum distance from the station
  • Leave all other settings as default
Point-to-MultiPoint

Configuration of the stations:Change device’s IP address (can be static or dynamic). Enable IP alias if necessary. All stations ip addresses should be in the same subnet as AP is.

Point-to-MultiPoint

Station Wirelles section configuration steps:-Select country code-Select wireless mode: Station WDS

According to access point:-Define SSID-Choose IEEE mode-Set Max data rate N to “Auto”-Enable Security if necessary-Set ACK timeout based on max distance from the station-Leave all other settings as default 

Point-to-MultiPoint

Observe signal levels at Access point and at Station. Recommended signal level range is from -35 to -60 dBm.If the device is MIMO, there are two signal streams. One of them is called as “Main” (Antenna 1), another is “Aux”
Main stream is mandatory. If main signal is very weak, the link will not be stable or will not work at all. It is necessary, to align the antennas for the best main signal. If Aux stream is weak, the link will work at lower data rate. Check if SNR is  good on AP and Station and it is over 20/20.AP Point:

Настройка Ligowave APC в режиме HotSpot

The HotSpot scenario is popular in the various public places like an airport, shop, bar or stadium. The APC allows user authentication through external or internal Web portal. This authentication method is called UAM. User provides login credentials and then Web portal attempts to authenticate and authorize the client using the provided information. Client will not send any authentication requests directly to the APC, the Web portal will do this. On success, APC will allow access to the Internet; otherwise Web portal will display failure notice.

HotSpot 1

Follow the steps to configure a Hotspot  UAM authentication through external Web portal, for wireless clients.

Step 1.   Configure network settings: the HotSpot with UAM authentication is available only if APC operates as Router.

HotSpot 2

Step 2.   Setup wireless  settings for HotSpot:– Select wireless mode: Access Point (auto WDS)– Define SSID– Set channel: Auto– Choose wireless security: UAM

HotSpot 3

Step 3.   Setup UAM authentication with External web/login page (hosted on separate web server):-Add at least one RADIUS server settings: IP addres, RADIUS secret, authentication and accounting ports

-Setup the External UAM fields: login page URL, welcome page URL, blacklist URL and logout URL

-UAM configuration can be automatically updated from the server at scheduled time

-UAM supports Hotspot description according to WISPr 1.0 recommendation: WISPr location name, operator name, network name, ISO country code, E.164 country code, E.164 area code

-UAM supports traffic limitation and has fields for default bandwidth definition. These parameters/attributes can be overridden per user from the RADIUS.

HotSpot

Step 4.   Additionally the following settings can be configured for the UAM autrhentication:-WPA-PSK encryption can be used on UAM for a stronger security-UAM supports white/black list which can be configured statically on the device or can be updated automatically from the server-UAM has an option for AP monitoring through HTTP URL

HotSpot 5

Step 5.   After the UAM authentication is successfully configured on the APC, all wireless clients will be redirected to the External Web portal for authentication.

Virtual AP

Virtual AP functionality is available only in Access Point (auto WDS) wireless mode.

Use the Configuration | Virtual AP page to configure to create up to 7 additional Virtual AP interfaces. The Virtual AP defines a logical wireless network, and the APC can be configured to provide additional 7 wireless networks on each device radio. All the VAPs may be active at the same time meaning that client devices can associate to the APC using any of the VAP SSID.

The Virtual AP table displays a summary of all virtual radio interfaces running on the APC:

varwwwsetionhttp filesmediacms page media268vaps1.png  793x498 q85 subsampling 2

To create a new Virtual AP, click on + button to add new entry on the VAP table, then select this entry and specify required parameters:

SSID – specify the unique name for the VAP [string].

Broadcast SSID – when this option is selected the particular SSID is visible during network scans on a wireless station. When unselected, the VAP SSID is not visible and not broadcasted to wireless stations.

Quality of service (WMM) – enable to support quality of service for prioritizing traffic.

Client isolation – enable the user Layer 2 isolation. The Layer 2 isolation blocks the wireless clients from communicating with each other.

Max clients limit – specify the maximum number of associated wireless clients per VAP.

Each VAP security is configured by default as an “open system”, which broadcasts a beacon signal including the configured SSID. For more secure network choose one of the security mechanisms for each VAP interface.

Security – choose the wireless security and encryption method from the drop-down list.Wireless clients must be able to respond with a specific security configuration

VLAN to SSID mapping

Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) are logical groupings of network resources.

VLAN to SSID mapping – specify the VLAN ID for traffic tagging on required radio interface [2-4095]. The Station devices that associate using the particular SSID will be grouped into this VLAN. Configuration window is in Configuration/Network section.  When device interfaces are configured with a specific VLAN ID value in Management section, only management frames that matching configured VLAN ID will be accepted by device. Restrict management is used when stations have to be management via VLAN too.

varwwwsetionhttp filesmediacms page media268vlantossid1.png  380x332 q85 subsampling 2

Network management is available only on Bridge network modeFor IP eth0 is mandatory because it is interface to the networkWhen you specify a new management VLAN, your HTTP connection to the device will be lost. For this reason, you should have a connection between your management station and a port in the new management VLAN or connect to the new management VLAN through a multi-VLAN router
