H3C WA2600X series outdoor high power access points (APs), the latest generation of GE APs compatible with 802.11n, provides a wireless access rate that is six times more than the rate of the traditional 802.11a/b/g network and covers a longer distance. The upstream interfaces access services are provided through GE interfaces that break the limitations of FE interfaces, thereby making the wireless multimedia application more practical.
WA2600X series provides a high power level of 500mW and comes complete with smart RF optimization technologies. This would maximize coverage distance, solve any coverage problem that would exist and enhance the outdoor WLAN coverage with higher precision and greater stability. Its sturdy all-in-one design is fully compliant with IP66 antidust and waterproof standard, allows for a wider operation temperature range and is well suited for outdoor installation and debugging. Typical applications include wireless city, wireless residential zone, rustic WiFi coverage, 3G+Wireless and other scenarios where sophisticated intelligent outdoor coverage is needed.

Smart outdoor access and optimum WLAN TCO
¨ WA2600X series complies to 802.11n standard, features a professional modular design and achieves a transfer rate of up to 300Mbps with a single RF, which is approximately six times their 802.11a/b/g counterparts under the same conditions. Through the intelligent RF coverage technology with hardware sensors, it can increase the scope of coverage, improve access density and operation stability, provide a better mobile cloud access and achieve better wireless network TCO.
¨ WA2600X series has a rugged all-in-one design that is fully compliant with IP66 antidust and waterproof standard, allows for a wider operation temperature range and is well suited for outdoor installation and debugging. Typical applications include wireless city, wireless residential zone, rustic WiFi coverage, 3G+Wireless and other scenarios where sophisticated intelligent outdoor coverage is needed.
GE SFP optical interface and LRE
¨ When deployed outdoor, the 100M cabling limit of some APs might not fit for the long haul network cabling requirement, the small form factor pluggable transceiver (SFP) in WA2600X comes to the rescue. Direct optical connection to AP also minimizes the chance of failure in cabling.
¨ The built-in Long Reach Ethernet (LRE) supports the conversion of a standard Ethernet signal to LRE signals over telephone-grade and Cat5 and Cat5e unshielded twisted pair wiring in order to fulfill the LRE requirements (LRE conversion equipment is needed in the central office).
Gigabit Ethernet connection
¨ GE port removes any bottleneck that limits the upstream speed in wireless products with Fast Ethernet ports, and provides a smooth upgrade path that allows for faster transmission and diversified RF deployment.
Dual Fat/Fit mode
¨ The WA2600x series supports Fat and Fit modes. You can flexibly switch between the two modes according to your network planning, and specify its shipping mode (Fat mode or Fit mode).
¨ Users can start small, acquire a couple of WA2600X series APs and set them to Fat mode. As the user grows and tens and hundreds of network devices are installed, the user is recommended to add more H3C WX access controllers to simplify network management and centrally manage all the WA2600X series APs. All the users need to do is to flip the APs to Fit mode.
¨ Switching working mode is easy and can be conducted in batch with the help of network management equipment. This protects the customer investment, realizes a smooth network scale up and is particularly suited to operators to perform a seamless, large scale wireless network capacity upgrade.
¨ When WA2600X series are running in Fit mode and are forwarding packets through a wide area network WAN, they are usually deployed as data access devices in branch offices, while ACs are deployed in headquarter. All user data is sent from APs to AC, and centrally forwarded by the AC, unnecessarily consuming WAN link bandwidth. WA2600X series APs can convert wireless packets to wired packets so that data packets are not sent through AC but forwarded locally, which significantly boosts the forwarding efficiency.
Dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stacks (Native IPv6)
¨ WA2600X series is fully compliant with IPv6 and implements a dual IPv4/IPv6 protocol stacks. Existing IPv4 and IPv6 wired networks can run in parallel and work seamlessly to register WLAN with WX series ACs, so that it never runs as an information silo.
EAD wireless access
¨ End user Admission Domination (EAD) integrates network access and endpoint security products, and helps ensure that only wireless clients who comply with mandated enterprise security policies can access the network, reducing threat levels by infected wireless clients and improving the overall security of the wireless network. When working with a security policy server, it can either remind users, isolate or boot them off the network when their systems are infected or not patched properly.
Remote probing and analysis
¨ WA2600X Series AP can act as sensor equipment for remote probing and analysis. It can intercept WiFi packets nearby and save it to AC in real-time for troubleshooting and optimization analysis. Remote probing can conduct a non-convergent image for working channels, or a polling of all channels to satisfy wireless network monitoring and maintenance requirements.
RF Optimizing Engine (ROE)
¨ WA2600X Series AP supports RF Optimizing Engine (ROE) for AP, which effectively increases the number of concurrent sessions in middle- to high-density access, accomplishes streaming media application acceleration and QoS through character and protocol based RF optimization. Features include multi-user fairness, mixed access fairness, interference filtering, speed optimization, per-packet power control and intelligent bandwidth guarantee.
Intelligent AP load balancing
¨ WA2600X series AP comes with intelligent load balancing, which spreads the workload according to the number of concurrent users and traffic. If a new incoming user breaks the preset loading limit, AP will check the location of the wireless client in real time, determine if nearby APs with smaller workload can provide access, and deny the user access only when such AP exists. What sets H3C intelligent load balancing apart from existing load balancing schemes is that it kicks in only if the user is located in an area with overlapping AP coverage, and prevents loss of access when the workload limit is reached but no backup AP exists. This maximizes wireless network capacity while preventing any erratic behavior in load balancing.
11n only access
¨ Although 802.11n AP is backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g clients which enables them to associate with 802.11n AP and share it with 802.11n users, it will create a performance impact to 802.11n clients. H3C WA2600X series 802.11n AP allows you to set its own RF to 11n only mode, such that only 802.11n users can get the bandwidth.
Chinese SSID support
¨ WA2600X series AP supports Chinese SSID. Users can assign a Chinese name with a maximum of 32 Chinese characters, or a name with mixed Chinese and English characters, a plus for both Chinese and interenational users.
Unified management of wired and wireless networks
¨ H3C Intelligent Management Center (iMC) Wireless Service Manager (WSM) provides unified management of wired and wireless networks, adding network management functions into existing wired network management systems. All WSM based wireless products can be managed through the open management protocol.
¨ WSM is SOA compliant, modular based, fully expandable and evolving with the growing needs of network management. It offers a web-based management system, and a simple and user friendly management platform for wireless network administrators. When working in iMC and coupled with other modules, it also implements panel management wireless management, troubleshooting, performance monitoring, software version control, deployment config management and user access management.
