Large-capacity and high-performance design
The AC6508 can manage up to 512 APs, meeting requirements of small and medium campuses.
Provides 2 x 10GE optical interfaces and 10 x GE electrical interfaces, supporting up to 10 Gbit/s forwarding performance.
SmartRadio for air interface optimization
Load balancing during smart roaming: The load balancing algorithm can work during smart roaming for load balancing detection among APs on the network after STA roaming to adjust the STA load on each AP, improving network stability.
Intelligent DFA technology: The dynamic frequency assignment (DFA) algorithm is used to automatically detect adjacent- channel and co-channel interference, and identify any 2.4 GHz redundant radio. Through automatic inter-AP negotiation, the redundant radio is automatically switched to another mode (dual-5G AP models support 2.4G-to-5G switchover) or is disabled to reduce 2.4 GHz co-channel interference and increase the system capacity.
Intelligent conflict optimization technology: The dynamic enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) and airtime scheduling algorithms are used to schedule the channel occupation time and service priority of each user. This ensures that each user is assigned relatively equal time for using channel resources and user services are scheduled in an orderly manner, improving service processing efficiency and user experience.
The AC6508 has a built-in Portal/AAA server and can provide Portal/802.1X authentication for users, reducing customer investment.
The WLAN AC can be deployed in inline, bypass, bridge, and Mesh network modes, and supports both centralized and local forwarding.
The WLAN AC and APs can be connected across a Layer 2 or Layer 3 network. In addition, NAT can be deployed when APs are deployed on the private network and the WLAN AC is deployed on the public network.
The WLAN AC is compatible with Huawei full-series 802.11n, 802.11ac and 802.11ax APs and supports hybrid networking of 802.11n, 802.11ac and 802.11ax APs for simple scalability.
Built-in application identification server
Supports Layer 4 to Layer 7 application identification and can identify over 6000 applications, including common office applications and P2P download applications, such as Lync, FaceTime, YouTube, and Facebook.
Supports application-based policy control technologies, including traffic blocking, traffic limit, and priority adjustment policies.
Supports automatic application expansion in the application signature database.
Comprehensive reliability design
Supports AC 1+1 HSB, and N+1 backup, ensuring uninterrupted services.
Supports port backup based on the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) or Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol (MSTP)..
Supports WAN authentication escape between APs and WLAN ACs. In local forwarding mode, this feature retains the online state of existing STAs and allows access of new STAs when APs are disconnected from WLAN ACs, ensuring service continuity.
Built-in visualized network management platform
The AC6508 has a built-in web system that is easy to configure and provides comprehensive monitoring and intelligent diagnosis.
Health-centric one-page monitoring, visualized KPIs
One page integrates the summary and real-time statistics. KPIs are displayed in graphs, including user performance, radio performance, and AP performance, enabling users to extract useful information from the massive amounts of monitored data, while also knowing the device and network status instantly.
