1. Console interface.
2. GE1: a 10/100/1000M interface, which connects to the wired Ethernet.
3. GE0/PoE: a 10/100/1000M interface, which connects to the wired Ethernet and supports PoE power supply.
4. Power input interface: 12 V DC
5. Security slot: connects to a security lock and protects the AP against theft.
6. Default button: restores factory settings if you hold down the button more than 3s.
|Default status after power-on||Green||Steady on||The AP is just powered on and the software is not started yet.|
|Software startup status||Green||Steady on after blinking once||After the system is reset and starts uploading the software, the indicator blinks green once. Until the software is uploaded and started, the indicator remains steady green.|
|Running status||Green||Blinking once every 2s (0.5 Hz)||1. The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and STAs are associated with the AP.
2. The system enters the Uboot CLI.
|Blinking once every 5s (0.2 Hz)||The system is running properly, the Ethernet connection is normal, and no STA is associated with the AP. The system is in low power consumption state (no data is being transmitted and the EEE function takes effect).
|Alarm||Green||Blinking once every 0.25s (4 Hz)||1. The software is being upgraded.
2. After the software is uploaded and started, the AP working in Fit AP mode enters the registration state and has not registered successfully with the AC yet.
3. The AP registration fails (the CAPWAP link is disconnected).
|Fault||Red||Steady on||A fault that affects services has occurred. The fault cannot be automatically rectified and must be rectified manually (the fault can be a DRAM detection failure or system software loading failure).|
|Blinking once every 0.25s (4 Hz)||A fault that affects services has occurred. The fault cannot be automatically rectified and must be rectified manually (the fault can be an Ethernet interface error， such as a PHY error, or a radio interface detection failure caused by a PCI-e interface error or a baseband chip error).|
Highly reliable wireless access
Comprehensive user access control capability
Flexible networking and environment adaptability
Simple device management and maintenance
The AP5030DN provides 802.11n/ac wireless access networks for places with simple building structure, small size, dense users, and high capacity demands, such as small and medium enterprises and branches.The AP5030DN can be flexibly deployed and works in both Fit AP and bridge mode.
The AP5030DN can work as a Fat AP or Fit AP and switch flexibly between the two working modes based on the network plan.
When the wireless network scale is small, customers need to purchase only AP products and set the APs to work as Fat APs. As the network scale expands, tens of or hundreds of APs exist on the network. To simplify network management, customers are advised to purchase wireless access controllers (ACs) to perform centralized management on the APs and set the APs to work as Fit APs.
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 going 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.
