    Configuring Mesh Networking 9.1 Mesh Networking Overview An AP-51xx can be configured in two modes to support the new mesh networking functionality. The access point can be set to a client bridge mode and/or a base bridge mode (which accepts connections from client bridges).

  • Page 590

    A mesh network must use one of the two access point LANs. If intending to use the access point for mesh networking support, Motorola recommends configuring at least one WLAN (of the 16 WLANs available) specifically for mesh networking support.

  • Page 591: The Ap-51xx Client Bridge Association Process

    MU traffic with its associated devices. CAUTION Only Motorola AP-5131 or AP-5181 model access points can be used as base bridges, client bridges or repeaters within an access point supported mesh network. If utilizing a mesh network, Motorola recommends considering a dual-radio model to optimize channel utilization and throughput.

  • Page 592: Client Bridge Configuration Process Example, Spanning Tree Protocol (stp)

    9.1.2 Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) The access point performs mesh networking using STP as defined in the 802.1d standard. NOTE The Motorola AP-4131 access point uses a non-standard form of 802.1d STP, and is therefore not compatible as a base bridge or client bridge within an access point managed network.

  • Page 593: Defining The Mesh Topology, Mesh Networking And The Ap-51xx's Two Subnets

    The user must be able to define one node as the root. Assigning a base bridge the lowest bridge priority defines it as the root. NOTE Motorola recommends using the Mesh STP Configuration screen to define a base bridge as a root.

  • Page 594: Normal Operation, Impact Of Importing/exporting Configurations To A Mesh Network, Configuring Mesh Networking Support

    AP-51xx Access Point Product Reference Guide 9.1.5 Normal Operation Once the mesh network is defined, all normal access point operations are still allowed. MUs are still allowed to associate with the access point as usual. The user can create WLANs, security polices and VLANs as with any other access point.

  • Page 595

    The user does not necessarily have to change these settings, as the default settings will work. However, Motorola encourages the user to define an access point as a base bridge and root (using the base bridge priority settings within the Bridge STP Configuration screen). Members of the mesh network can be configured as client bridges or additional base bridges with a higher priority value.

  • Page 596

    (commonly referred to as the root). Motorola recommends assigning a Base Bridge AP with the lowest bridge priority so it becomes the root in the STP. If a root already exists, set the Bridge Priorities of new APs accordingly so the root of the STP doesn't get altered.

    An adaptive AP (AAP) is an AP-51XX access point that can adopt like an AP300 (L3). The management of an AAP is conducted by the switch, once the access point connects to a Motorola WS5100 or RFS7000 model switch and receives its AAP configuration.

  • Page 630: Where To Go From Here

    10-2 AP-51xx Access Point Product Reference Guide The benefits of an AAP deployment include: • Centralized Configuration Management & Compliance - Wireless configurations across distributed sites can be centrally managed by the wireless switch or cluster. • WAN Survivability - Local WLAN services at a remote sites are unaffected in the case of a WAN outage.

  • Page 631: Adaptive Ap Management, Types Of Adaptive Aps

    Adaptive AP 10-3 10.1.2 Adaptive AP Management An AAP can be adopted, configured and managed like a thin access port from the wireless switch. NOTE To support AAP functionality, a WS5100 model switch must be running firmware version 3.1 or higher, whereas a RFS7000 model switch must be running firmware version 1.1 or higher.

  • Page 632: Licensing, Switch Discovery, Auto Discovery Using Dhcp

    10-4 AP-51xx Access Point Product Reference Guide 10.1.4 Licensing An AAP uses the same licensing scheme as a thin access port. This implies an existing license purchased with a switch can be used for an AAP deployment. Regardless of how many AP300 and/or AAPs are deployed, you must ensure the license used by the switch supports the number of radio ports (both AP300s and AAPs) you intend to adopt.

    LAN1. If the WAN Interface is used, explicitly configure WAN as the default gateway interface. • Motorola recommends using the LAN1 interface for adoption in multi-cell deployments. • If you have multiple independent WLANs mapped to different VLANs, the AAP's LAN1 interface requires trunking be enabled with the correct management and native VLAN IDs configured.

    10-10 AP-51xx Access Point Product Reference Guide 10.2.2 Extended WLANs Only An extended WLAN configuration forces all MU traffic through the switch. No wireless traffic is locally bridged by the AAP. Each extended WLAN is mapped to the access point's virtual LAN2 subnet. By default, the access point's LAN2 is not enabled and the default configuration is set to static with IP addresses defined as all zeros.
