TitleHow correctly configure antenna groups for AP510e?
Objective
  • AP510e antena group configuration
Environment
  • WiNG 7
  • AP510e
Procedure

The ExtremeMobility AP510e access point is a dual-radio access point, with eight, external Wi-Fi antennas grouped into: group-1 (antenna ports 1 to 4) and group-2 (antenna ports 5 to 8).

To enable the AP510e radio, configure the country code, map a WLAN to the radio, and configure the antenna-id for the 'group-1' and 'group-2' antenna ports. The antenna-id parameter, specifies the antenna type used in the group-1 and/or group-2 antenna ports.

 Antenna Ports
Software Mode2.4/5G Antennas: 1, 2, 3, 45G Antennas: 5, 6, 7, 8
Mode 1
  • Radio 1 - 2.4 GHz WLAN
  • Radio 2 - 5 GHz WLAN

Note: This mode requires only FOURdual-band antennas connected to ANT sockets 1 to 4.
Note: If using this mode, configure antenna-id only for the group 1 antennas.
Dual-band 2.4 GHz/5 GHzNone
Mode 2
  • Radio 1 - 2.4/5 GHz Sensor
  • Radio 2 - 5 GHz WLAN

Note: This mode requires FOURdual-band antennas connected to ANT sockets 1 to 4, and FOUR5G-band antennas connected to ANT sockets 5 to 8.
Note: If using this mode, configure antenna-id for both group 1 and group 2 antennas.
Dual-band 2.4 GHz/5 GHz5 GHz
Mode 3
  • Radio 1 - 5 GHz WLAN
  • Radio 2 - 5 GHz WLAN

Note: Requires FOUR5G-band antennas connected to ANT sockets 1 to 4, and FOUR5G-band antennas connected to ANT sockets 5 to 8.
Note: If using this mode, configure antenna-id for both group 1 and group 2 antennas.

Syntax

antenna-id external [group-1|group-2] <ANTENNA-TYPE>

Parameters

antenna-idSelects the antenna group to use and enables the access point radio.
externalStates the antenna is external
group-1Configures the antenna type used in the group-1 antenna ports (1 to 4).
Note: Group-1 antenna configuration is required for all three software modes.
Note: Refer to the table above for the supported software modes and the corresponding antenna configurations.
group-2Configures the antenna type used in the group-2 antenna ports (5 to 8 ).
Note: Group-2 antenna configuration is ONLY required for software modes 2 & 3.
Note: Refer to the table above for the supported software modes and the corresponding antenna configurations.
antenna-typeConfigures the antenna type used

The antenna types supported for 'group-1' and 'group-2' antenna ports are: ai-dq04360s, ml-2452-apa2-01, ml-2452-apa2-02, ml-2452-hpa5-036, ml-2452-hpag4a6-01, ml-2452-hpag5a8-01, ml-2452-pna5-01r, ml-2452-pna7-01r, ml-2452-pta4m4-036, ml-2452-sec6m4-036, ws-ai-dq05120.

By default no antenna-type is associated with the grouo-1 and group-2 antenna ports and the radio is disabled.

Usage Guidelines:

Following is the supported software modes for the AP510e access point radios:

Software Mode 1
  • Radio 1: Set to 2.4 GHz WLAN, Channels 1 - 11 in the 20 MHz /40 MHz bandwidths
  • Radio 2: Set to 5 GHz WLAN, Channels 36 - 165 in the 20 MHz /40 MHz /80 MHz /160 MHz
Software Mode 2
  • Radio 1: Set to 2.4/5 GHz Sensor
  • Radio 2: Set to 5 GHz WLAN, Channels 36 - 165 in the 20 MHz /40 MHz /80 MHz /160 MHz
Software Mode 3
  • Radio 1: Set to 5 GHz, Channels 36 - 64 in the 20 MHz /40 MHz /80 MHz /160 MHz bandwidths
  • Radio 2: Set to 5 GHz, Channels 100 - 165 in the 20 MHz /40 MHz /80 MHz /160 MHz bandwidths
