Huawei AP8030DNs comply with IP67 dustproof and waterproof protection standards, applicable to coverage scenarios (for example, squares, pedestrian streets, and amusement parks) and bridging scenarios (for example, wireless harbors, data backhaul, and video surveillance).


Huawei AP8030DN is the latest-generation 802.11ac outdoor Access Point (AP) that supports 3x3 MIMO. The AP is physically hardened and feature enhanced outdoor coverage performance. The AP can provide services simultaneously on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands to support more access users. It provides comprehensive service support capabilities and features high reliability, high security, simple network deployment, automatic AC discovery and configuration, and real-time management and maintenance, which meets requirements of outdoor deployment.


Fit AP networking (AP mode):

In this networking, the AP functions as a fit AP and provides only data forwarding functions. The AC is responsible for user access, AP go-online, AP management, authentication, routing, security, and QoS.



Fit AP networking (WDS mode: point-to-point):


Fit AP networking (WDS mode: point-to-multipoint):

In this networking, the AP connects two or more independently wired or wireless LANs through wireless links to construct a network on which users can exchange data. In Wireless Distribution System (WDS) mode, the AP supports point-to-point (P2P) and point-to-multipoint (P2MP) networking modes. With 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the AP can implement wireless bridging and access functions.



Fit AP mesh networking:

On the preceding network, APs function as mesh points (MPs) and are fully-meshed to establish an auto-configured and self-healing wireless mesh network (WMN). APs with the gateway function can work as the mesh portal points (MPPs) through which the WMN can provide access to the Internet. Terminals connect to APs to access the WMN. The WMN uses dedicated mesh routing protocols to guarantee high transmission quality and is more applicable to scenarios that require high bandwidth and highly stable Internet connections.



Fat AP networking:

On the preceding network, the device functions as a Fat AP to implement functions such as user access, authentication, data security, service forwarding, and QoS.
