A wireless distribution system (WDS) is a method of interconnecting access points (AP) in a wireless local area network (WLAN) without requiring that they connect through a wired backbone. To establish a distributed WLAN, two or more access points are configured with the same service set identifier (SSID).

  2. 2. An introduction A wireless distribution system (WDS) is a method of interconnecting access points (AP) in a wireless local area network (WLAN) without requiring that they connect through a wired backbone. To establish a distributed WLAN, two or more access points are configured with the same service set identifier (SSID). The most common use of a wireless distribution system is to bridge a WLAN spanning two buildings. The simplest WDS consists of two access points configured to forward messages to each other, working in conjunction with an antenna that enables line-of-sight communication. However, signal performance of AP2 is worse than AP1, and AP3 is worse than AP2……
  3. 3. ●Network Architecture 1. UTM with many AP-200 2. AP1 connects to UTM LAN. 3. Others just connect POE Cable. 4. These Aps are in the same SSID. Noted: The best WDS distance is less than 0.6Km.
