    2.1 Installation Instructions An AP-6521E Series Access Point can attach to a wall, mount under a suspended T-Bar or mount above a ceiling. Select a mounting option based on the physical environment of the coverage area. Do not mount the Access Point in a location that has not been approved in a site survey.

  • Page 9: Access Point Placement

    • Point the Access Point antennas downward if attaching to the ceiling (external antenna models only). To maximize the Access Point’s radio coverage area, Motorola Solutions recommends conducting a site survey to define and document radio interference obstacles before installing the Access Point.

  • Page 11: Power Injector System

    Installation Guide 2.3.2 Power Injector System The Access Point can receive power via an Ethernet cable connected to the GE1/PoE port. When users purchase a WLAN solution, they often need to place Access Points in obscure locations. In the past, a dedicated power source was required for each Access Point in addition to the Ethernet infrastructure.

  • Page 12

    Power Injector is placed as close as possible to the Ethernet switch. This will allow the AP-6521E to be deployed away from power drops. • Ensure the cable length from the Ethernet source (host) to the Power Injector and AP-6521E Access Point does not exceed 100 meters (333 ft).

  • Page 13: Wall Mount Installation

    9. Cable the Access Point using either the Power Injector solution or an approved line cord and power supply. For Motorola Power Injector installations: a. Connect an RJ-45 CAT5 Ethernet cable between the network data supply (host) and the Power Injector’s Data In connector.

    4. Create a light pipe path hole in the target position on the ceiling tile. 5. Use a drill to make a hole in the tile the approximate size of the Access Point LED light pipe. Motorola Solutions recommends care be taken not to damage the CAUTION finished surface of the ceiling tile when creating the light pipe hole and installing the light pipe.

    Installation Guide 7. Expand the Configuration menu item and select Basic. 8. Set the following Basic Configuration Settings for this Access Point: • AP Name - Provide an AP Name used as this Access Point’s WiNG Express network identifier. If setting this Access Point as a Virtual Controller, each Access Point managed by this Virtual Controller lists this Access Point’s AP Name as its own.

    IP address allocation and delivery of host-specific configuration parameters from a DHCP server to a host. Some of these parameters are IP address, network mask, and gateway. Motorola Solutions recommends the WAN and LAN ports should not both be configured as DHCP clients.

  • Page 23

    Installation Guide • Static IP / Mask - Specify an IP address for the WAN connection if using static address assignment for the WAN port. An IP address uses a series of four numbers expressed in dot notation, for example, Additionally, specify a Mask for the access point’s WAN connection. This number is available from the ISP for a DSL or cable-modem connection, or from an administrator if the Access Point connects to a larger network.

    VLAN - Use the spinner control to specify a VLAN from 1 - 4,094 for this WLAN. When a client associates with a WLAN, the client is assigned a VLAN by load balance distribution. Motorola Solutions recommends you do not use VLAN 1 with the WLAN if the WAN port has been enabled.

  • Page 27

    Installation Guide 19. Expand the Configuration menu item and select Services 20. Select Enable DHCP Server to ensure the Access Point can provision IP addresses to requesting clients over the specified interface. A VLAN must be already configured and available to the DHCP server as NOTE a viable interface between the Access Point and requesting client.
