Wireless AP: startup
You are now ready to add the Wireless APs to the Controller, Access Points and Convergence
Software system and register them with the HiPath Wireless Controller. Before the Wireless
APs can handle wireless traffic, you will also need to assign the Wireless APs to a VNS.
5.1
Wireless AP features
The Wireless AP is a wireless LAN access point using the 802.11 wireless standards (802.11a,
802.11b and 802.11g) for network communications. The Wireless AP bridges network traffic to
an Ethernet LAN.
The Wireless AP is provided with proprietary software that allows it to communicate only with
the HiPath Wireless Controller.
The Wireless AP is physically connected to a LAN infrastructure and establishes an IP
connection to a HiPath Wireless Controller. The Wireless AP has no user interface. The only
way to manage a Wireless AP is through the HiPath Wireless Controller.
All communication with the HiPath Wireless Controller is carried out using a UDP-based
protocol to encapsulate IP traffic from the Wireless APs and direct it to the HiPath Wireless
Controller. The HiPath Wireless Controller decapsulates the packets and routes them to the
appropriate destinations, while managing sessions and applying policy.

The Wireless AP
The Wireless AP has two radios:
●
a 5 GHz radio that supports the 802.11a standard
The 802.11a standard is an extension to 802.11 that applies to wireless LANs and provides
up to 54 Mbps in the 5-GHz band. 802.11a uses an orthogonal frequency division
multiplexing encoding scheme rather than FHSS or DSSS.
●
a 2.4 GHz radio that supports both the 802.11g and 802.11b standards
