Huawei AC6508 Access Controller

Huawei AC6508 is access controllers (AC) applicable to MANs and enterprise networks for wireless access. AC6508 has a large capacity and high performance. It is highly reliable, easy to install and maintain, and features such advantages as flexible networking and energy conservation.

The AC resides at the aggregation layer to provide the high-speed, secure, and reliable WLAN service. ‎Figure 1 shows the position of the AC in the overall network solution.

Dual-AC Networking:

To ensure uninterrupted service forwarding, enterprises that require high reliability use active and standby ACs for networking.

Dual-AC backup can be implemented in two modes:
HSB + dual-link backup: as shown in Figure 1, an AP establishes CAPWAP tunnels with both the active and standby ACs. The two ACs synchronize service information (such as NAC and WLAN service information) through the hot standby (HSB) function. When an AP is disconnected from the active AC, the AP notifies the standby AC of a switchover. This mode frees active and standby ACs from location restrictions and allows both ACs to be flexibly deployed. In this mode, the two ACs can implement load balancing to make efficient use of resources. However, service switching takes a relatively long time.
