This MIB provides AP information which includes AP current object information, AP statistic data. GLOSSARY IEEE 802.11 Standard to encourage interoperability among wireless networking equipment. Access point (AP) Transmitter/receiver (transceiver) device that commonly connects and transports data between a wireless network and a wired network. Access control (AC) To control and manage multi-APs, it will bridge wireless and wired network. Fat AP Applied in the home, SOHO and so on, and it could work independently without help from AC. Fit AP Applied in the enterprise environment, it will work under the control and management from AC. Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points Protocol The short name of protocol is CAPWAP. AC will control and manage AP by CAPWAP tunnel protocol defined by IETF. Also, a data tunnel will be set up between AC and AP. BSS IEEE 802.11 Basic Service Set (Radio Cell). The BSS of an AP comprises of the stations directly associating with the AP. Radio The chip set to receive and send wireless signal. Association The service used to establish access point or station mapping and enable STA invocation of the distribution system services. (Wireless clients attempt to connect to access points.) Basic Rate A data rate that is mandatory for client devices to support in order for them to achieve successful association.
