X-Share is an indoor distributed coverage technology developed by H3C. What differentiates X-Share with other indoor coverage technology is that user can choose their own antenna to send and receive packets. This significantly reduces interference and has the advantage of good indoor distributed signal.
X-share series AP uses a smart adaptive antenna array, in which each antenna comes with independent adaptive capability and RF policy. Silent mode uses these adaptive antennas to accurately locate the antenna associating with each user in a room, and send data accurately to the location where user stays in, without duplicating the effort by using other antennas to send the data to the user.
When Silent mode is on, each antenna acts like an independent AP and is responsible for taking care of a user by establishing an independent send/receive channel.
WA4320i-X AP complies with 802.11ac standard and features a single stream 866Mbps wireless transfer rate, which is approximately 3 times faster their 802.11n counterparts under the same conditions. Through the smart adaptive antenna array technology, it can increase the scope of coverage, improve access density and operation stability, provide a better mobile cloud access and achieve better wireless network total cost of ownership (TCO).
X-share series AP employs a green design which supports dynamic MIMO power saving (DMPS), enhanced automatic power save delivery (E-APSD), and smart identification of real terminal network requirements. It can dynamically adjust the MIMO working mode and efficiently put terminals to sleep from time to time.
X-share series Green AP mode supports single radio standby and allows for more precise control in power saving.
X-share series AP supports the innovative per-packet power control technology, which reduces standby power consumption and improves the battery lives of mobile devices without losing packets.
Dual GE ports remove any bottleneck that limits the upstream speed in wireless products with Fast Ethernet ports, and provide a smooth upgrade path that allows for faster transmission and diversified RF deployment strategies.
Dual GE ports also provide AP PoE power supply and uplink transmission backup that will remove a single point of failure on the wired transmission.
X-share series AP 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 the corresponding network equipment and set it 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 X-share series AP. All the users need to do is to flip the APs to Fit mode.
Switching working mode is easy and can be conducted by 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.
X-share series AP is 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 wireless Access Controllers (ACs) are deployed in headquarter. All user data is sent from APs to AC, and centrally forwarded by the AC. X-share series AP can convert wireless packets to wired packets so that data packets are not sent through AC but forwarded locally, which significantly saves the WAN link bandwidth.
X-share series AP 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.
RealTime Spectrum Guard (RTSG) is the innovative H3C professional state-monitoring program for the wireless spectrum. H3C X-share series AP supports the internal RF data acquisition module to achieve deeply integrated monitoring and real time spectrum protection.
The RTSG Console is integrated into the iMC (intelligent Management Center), and performs data acquisition through the CAPWAP tunnel management and Sensor AP. It can achieve 24x7 wireless signal quality monitoring, trend assessment and unauthorized interference alert. Through active probe and 2.4GHz/5GHz RF interference source (WiFi or non-WiFi) in every band, it provides a graphic representation of real-time FFT plot of the spectral density plot, spectrum diagram, the duty cycle map, event spectrum diagram, channel gain and interference gain. It can also automatically identify the source of interference, to determine the location of rogue wireless equipment, to ensure the wireless network is always in great shape. Combined with H3C iMC iAR (intelligent Analysis Report) module, it can maintain a complete history of RF quality in the coverage area, including its trace and playback, automatically generate customized trend, compliance and audit reports.
To cater for the different supervision demands in user's wireless environment, the RTSG solution can be deployed in either Local mode or Monitor Mode. In Local Mode, you can maintain normal user access and data packet forwarding without compromising effective spectrum protection.
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 remind users, isolate or boot them off the network when their systems are infected or not patched properly. Only wireless clients who have complied with security policies are admitted, thereby raising the bar in overall wireless security.
X-share series AP can work as a remote probing and analysis sensor device. It can intercept WiFi packets nearby and save to a local device 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.
X-share series AP supports RF Optimizing Engine (ROE), 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, spectrum guide, IPv4/IPv6 multicast signal boost, per-packet power control and intelligent bandwidth guarantee.
X-share 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.
Although 802.11ac AP is backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n clients which enables them to associate with 802.11ac AP, the compatibility it will create a performance impact to 802.11ac clients. H3C WA4320i-X 802.11ac AP allows you to set a particular RF of it to 11ac only mode, such that only 802.11ac clients can connect to the access point in order to guarantee they get the bandwidth. It is recommended to set the device in 5GHz 11ac only mode to give 802.11ac users the widest bandwidth and access performance; for devices running in 2.4GHz band, set the AP to 2.4GHz compatible mode to maintain smooth operation with 802.11b/g/n devices.
X-share 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 Chinese users.
X-share series AP supports TR-069, which help network administrators to perform remote centralized management of distributed devices. TR-069 is developed by the DSL Forum (www.dslforum.org), and is also known as CPE WAN management protocol.
H3C Intelligent 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 configuration management and user access management.
