Description

Passpoint

cnPilot E400/E500, ePMP


1000

The Passpoint (Hotspot 2.0) feature provides


WPA2 hotspot network access and online sign
up. For more details, see Passpoint.

L2TPv2 tunnel

cnPilot E400/E500

Access points are now capable of creating


layer 2 L2TPv2 tunnels. For more details, see
L2TPv2 tunnel.
LDAP guest access authenticates a guest user
from Lightweight Directory Access Protocol
(LDAP) server like Active Directory (AD) as the
backend database. For more details, see LDAP
guest access.

LDAP guest access

Mesh Recovery

cnPilot E400/E500, ePMP


1000

Mesh recovery feature is used to recover the


failure mesh client node. For more details, see
Mesh recovery.

Multi-Hop mesh

cnPilot E400/E500, ePMP


1000

Multi-hop mesh is used to extend the range for


longer distances. For more details, see Multihop Mesh.

cnPilot E400/E500, ePMP

Airtime Fairness is a solution on access points


(AP) to increase the performance of 11n and
11ac clients (HT clients) in the presence of
legacy 11abg clients. For more details, see
Airtime Fairness.

Airtime Fairness

Passpoint
Passpoint enables a secure, automatic connection experience for users and supports operator goals of
leveraging Wi-Fi technology for data offload of cellular networks. The Passpoint feature is configurable per
WLAN.
To configure passpoint feature using CLI:
In wlan scope use passpoint command
To configure passpoint feature using UI:
In WLAN configuration page, click Passpoint tab to configure passpoint.

cnPilot Enterprise AP Release Notes

CAMBIUM NETWORKS

Airtime Fairness
Legacy clients need more air time to transmit/receive the data compared to HT clients (11n and 11ac clients).
Because of this the overall throughput of the HT clients falls down. Enabling this feature improves the
performance of HT clients by throttling the legacy clients.
By default, Airtime Fairness is disabled on all the radios.
To enable Airtime Fairness per radio,
1. Navigate to Configure > Radios and select the radio.
2. Select the Enable Airtime Fairness checkbox.

LDAP guest access


When the user enters a valid username and password on the web authentication login page and clicks
Submit, the user is authenticated based upon the credentials submitted and a successful authentication
from the backend database (LDAP in this case). The web authentication system then displays a successful
login page and redirects the authenticated client to the requested URL.

AP configuration
In WLAN configure page, select Guest Access tab and perform the following:
1. Select Access Policy as LDAP.
2. In the BaseDN field, if user domain name is corporation.com, then enter dc=corporation and
dc=com.
3. In UserDN field, enter the distinguished name (DN) of the subtree in LDAP server that contains a list
of all the users. For example, ou=organizational unit and dc=corporation, dc=com.
In Services configure page,
Enter the IP address of the LDAP server and its port number.

L2TPv2 tunnel
The L2TPv2 tunnels are created with external routers such as Cisco 7200 series or Microtiks RB750r2,
RB3011 (or any other router which provides L2TPv2 tunnel concentration capability).
To create L2TPv2 tunnel using CLI:

tunnel l2tp
no shutdown
remote-ip <ip-addr>
auth admin
To create tunnel mode per WLAN,

host (config)# wireless wlan<id>


host (config-wlan-1)# tunnel-mode
To create L2TPv2 tunnel using UI:
1. Navigate to Configure > Networks page

pmp-1456 August 2016

2. Select L2TP Tunnel tab


3. Select Enable checkbox.
4. Enter Remote IP and Authentication Info details.
To create tunnel mode per WLAN,
Navigate to Configure> WLAN page and provide the details.

Multi-hop mesh
Multiple-Hop mesh allows the administrator to increase the range of the meshed network by daisy chaining
wireless backhaul links across multiple Access Points. Note that since the mesh radio would typically
receive, then transmit, on the same channel, throughput after each hop would degrade by 50-60%. However,
for hard to cable areas the multi-hop mesh might be the only way to provide connectivity to clients.

Wired-Connection >=== AP1 ...(mesh)... AP2 ...(mesh)... AP3

Configuration
AP1:

Wlan1
<< mesh base>>
AP2:

Wlan1
{
<<mesh client>>
}
Wlan2
{
<<mesh base>>
}
AP3:
<<mesh client>>

Mesh recovery
Mesh recovery can be used in two cases.
Recover a mesh AP that was stranded from the network because of a mismatched configuration in
radio, Mesh SSID or security passphrase.
An AP with default configuration, running firmware version 3.0.
Mesh Base:
On mesh base user needs to configure mesh recovery profile in one of the WLAN
<<mesh recovery>>

pmp-1456 August 2016

cnPilot Enterprise AP Release Notes

CAMBIUM NETWORKS

Mesh Client:
On mesh client mesh recovery profile will be configured when it is out of box case with no backhaul
connection or when mesh client lost connection with the mesh base.
On the mesh client, the user does not need to configure anything, mesh recovery is enabled by default.
