12
Altitude 4600 Series Access Point Installation Guide
Precautions
Before installing an Altitude 4600 Series Access Point, verify the following:
●
The intended deployment site is not a wet or dusty area.
●
The environment has a continuous temperature range between 0° C to 50° C.
Access Point Placement
For optimal performance, install the Altitude 4600 Series Access Point away from
transformers, heavy-duty motors, fluorescent lights, microwave ovens, refrigerators and
other industrial equipment. Signal loss can occur when metal, concrete, walls or floors
block transmission. Install the access point in an open area or add access points as
needed to improve coverage.
Antenna coverage is analogous to lighting. Users might find an area lit from far away to
be not bright enough. An area lit sharply might minimize coverage and create dark
areas. Uniform antenna placement in an area (like even placement of a light bulb)
provides even, efficient coverage.
Place the access point using the following guidelines:
●
Install the access point at an ideal height of 10 feet from the ground.
●
Orient the access point antennas vertically for best reception.
To maximize the access point’s radio coverage area, Extreme Networks® recommends
conducting a site survey to define and document radio interference obstacles before
installing an Altitude 4600 Series Access Point.
Integrated Antenna Model Wall Mount Instructions
This mounting requires hanging the access point along its width or length using the
two slots on the bottom of the unit. An Altitude 4600 Series Access Point can be

Establishing Basic AP Connectivity
This section defines the steps required to establish basic AP connectivity with an
Extreme Networks Summit® WM3000 series controller.
Prerequisites for connecting an Altitude 4600 Series Access Point to a controller include:
●
Ensure your controller has an appropriate access point capacity license.
●
Ensure the controller is up and running on the network and is reachable from the
network on which the AP is installed.
●
Refer to the controller installation guide and Summit WM3000 Series Controller System
Reference Guide for details.
Access Point Controller Adoption
Access point adoption is the process of a controller accepting the access point’s device
radios for use within the controller managed network. The access point’s radio(s)
encapsulates every packet and sends them to the controller.
When the controller and the AP are in same Layer 2 domain, the AP can discover the
controller and gets adopted by the controller automatically. It is plug-n-play and no
other configuration is required. If the AP and controller are across a subnet, the process
defined in the next paragraph is required for AP adoption.
The Altitude 4600 Series Access Point and WLAN controller support standard and
vendor specific DHCP options which can be supplied from a DHCP server to the
Altitude 4600 Series Access Point operating as a DHCP client. The DHCP options can be
enabled on the DHCP server to automate management functions such as firmware
image and configuration file updates as well as provide the necessary information to an
access point for automatic controller discovery allowing for plug and play access point
deployment.
