Attention
Special Considerations
While UNIVERGE WL Access Points have been engineered for easy installation,
there are some guidelines that are very important to the end users:
•
PLACE UNIVERGE WL Access Points NO MORE THAN 140 FEET APART
FROM EACH OTHER. Placing UNIVERGE WL APs further apart almost
always results in poor coverage.
•
DO NOT MOUNT UNIVERGE WL APs OUTSIDE BUILDINGS.
•
DO NOT MOUNT UNIVERGE WL APs ON BUILDING PERIMETER WALLS
UNLESS THE OPERATOR WANTS TO PROVIDE COVERAGE OUTSIDE THE
BUILDING.
UNIVERGE WL Access Point (External-Antenna) Quick Installation Guide
1-2
•
MAKE SURE THAT THE UNIVERGE WL
Access Points ARE INSTALLED VERTICALLY. UNIVERGE WL Access Points ARE
DESIGNED TO BE INSTALLED VERTICALLY, either standing up in a plenum
or hanging from a ceiling, to create the
largest coverage area per UNIVERGE WL
AP. Hanging the UNIVERGE WL AP from the ceiling provides the best RF
coverage.
•
DO NOT MOUNT UNIVERGE WL Access
Point ANTENNAS WITHIN ONE METER (3
FT.) OF ANY METAL OBSTRUCTIONS.
THE RF WAVES FROM UNIVERGE WL
Access Points ARE BLOCKED AND/OR
REFLECTED BY METAL OBJECTS, such as
metal HVAC ducts, conduit, pipes,
bookcases, elevator shafts, stairwells,
and metal walls. REFER TO THE
UNIVERGE WL Access Point Deployment Guide BEFORE MOUNTING
UNIVERGE WL APs NEAR METAL OBSTRUCTIONS.
•
WHEN MOUNTING UNIVERGE WL APs IN
THE CORNER OF A RIGHT-ANGLE
HALLWAY INTERSECTION, MOUNT THE
UNIVERGE WL AP AT A 45-DEGREE
ANGLE TO THE TWO HALLWAYS. The
UNIVERGE WL AP internal antennas are
not omnidirectional, and will cover a larger area if mounted this way.
Overview
Overview
This guide is designed to provide you with the information needed to mount
UNIVERGE WL 1200-B (external) and UNIVERGE WL 1200-AB (external)
UNIVERGE WL Access Points and UNIVERGE WL 1200Rs. UNIVERGE WL APs and
UNIVERGE WL 1200Rs are part of the innovative UNIVERGE WL Wireless Enterprise System (UNIVERGE WL System), and require no manual configuration
after they are mounted.
This document assumes that a site survey has been performed as described in
the UNIVERGE WL Access Point Deployment Guide, that UNIVERGE WL AP and
UNIVERGE WL 1200R locations and mounting options have been selected, and
that you have one UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R per indicated
location.
After the site survey is done, you should have a map indicating the following:
•
AP and UNIVERGE WL 1200R locations.
•
AP and UNIVERGE WL 1200R mounting options: in the middle of a
ceiling/hallway, in the ceiling plenum, projecting away from the wall, or
flat against the wall.
•
AP and UNIVERGE WL 1200R power options: power supplied by the ACto-DC power supply orderable from the factory, or Power over Ethernet
(PoE) from the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, another network
device, or a PoE injector/hub (usually located in a wiring closet).
If you do not have a map, make one so you can record the MAC addresses from
each location and return them to the to the person who is planning or managing
this wireless network.

If your version 1.2 UNIVERGE WL AP(s) cannot be configured for any
other reason using the following procedure, refer to RMA Procedures
located in the UNIVERGE WL Product Documentation.
Configuration Steps for an UNIVERGE WL AP
1.
Configuration Steps for an UNIVERGE WL AP
Configure the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller in LWAPP Layer 2
Mode and make sure its DS Port is connected to the network. Use CLI,
Web Browser and/or WLCS procedures as described in the UNIVERGE
WL Wireless Controller Quick Installation Guide.
-
Make sure AP ports are available (either Direct-Connect Mode or
Embedded Mode).
-
Set the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller as the Master, so new
UNIVERGE WL APs always associate with it.
-
Refer to the UNIVERGE WL Product Documentation for other
settings.
(Note that Layer 3 and Layer 2 LWAPP operation can be switched back
and forth as described in the Solutions section.)
2.
Take the AP out of the box and plug it into a front-panel 10Base-T
connector on the Master Switch (Direct-Connect mode), or through the
same subnet that UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller is on (Embedded
Mode).
3.
Apply power to the AP:
-
Use 802.3af-compliant Power Over Ethernet (PoE) from the
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller or from an orderable inline
power injector. If you do not have PoE available, use an
orderable external AC-to-48 VDC Power Supply plugged into the
side of the AP.
-
After powering up the AP, the RED Alarm LED comes on for a
short period (about 15-20 seconds) and then all the LEDs blink
sequentially back and forth, indicating that the AP is trying to
find a UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller to connect to. This can
continue for up to five minutes. If the AP remains in this mode
for more than five minutes, the AP is unable to find the Master
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Check the connection
between the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller and
make sure the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller are
on the same subnet.
-
If the power light does not come on, check the power (it can be
powered either with Power over Ethernet or a from an orderable
AP External Power Supply.
-
Make sure that a DHCP server is configured in the UNIVERGE WL
Wireless Controller for the Management Interface using the CLI,
Web Browser, or WLCS interface, and that the DHCP server is
operating correctly.
-
Once the AP finds the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, it
attempts to download the new UNIVERGE WL Operating System
code if the AP code version differs from the UNIVERGE WL
Wireless Controller code version. While this is happening, the
LEDs on the top of the AP blink on and off together.
UNIVERGE WL Access Point (External-Antenna) Quick Installation Guide
1-6
4.
Once the UNIVERGE WL Operating System code download is successful,
the AP reboots. The GREEN LED turns on and the two YELLOW/AMBER/
ORANGE LEDs indicate the states of the 802.11a and 802.11b/g
networks. If any part of the network is disabled in the UNIVERGE WL
Wireless Controller, the corresponding YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE LED
remains off.
-
Note that the Red LED can light for a short period (10-20
seconds) when the AP reboots. If the RED LED comes on AND
STAYS ON for more than a minute, disconnect the AP and call
NEC Technical Support.
-
From the CLI, Web Browser or WLCS interface, configure the AP
with its Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller name.
-
If you will be using the AP in a mobility group, set the mobility
group name using the CLI, Web Browser or WLCS interface.
-
If required, use the CLI, Web Browser or WLCS interface to
customize the AP-specific 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g
network settings. Once again, the two YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE
LEDs indicate the states of the 802.11a and 802.11b/g
networks. If any part of the network is disabled, the
corresponding YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE LED remains off.
5.
If everything works (the GREEN LED is on and the RED LED is off),
disconnect the AP and take it to its final destination and install it as
described in this document. If your UNIVERGE WL AP fails this visual
test, refer to the RMA Procedures located in the UNIVERGE WL Product
Documentation to return your UNIVERGE WL APs.
6.
When you have installed and powered up the AP in its final destination,
verify that the LEDs are in the same state they were in at the end of
Step 4. If no LEDs are on, the AP is most likely not receiving power. If
the LEDs blink sequentially back and forth for more than five minutes,
the AP is unable to find its Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller.
Check the connection between the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless
Controller, and make sure the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless
Controller are either on the same subnet or that the AP has a route back
to its Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. If the UNIVERGE WL
AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R is not on the same subnet as the UNIVERGE
WL Wireless Controller, make sure there is a DHCP server on the same
subnet as the UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R. Also, make
sure that the route between the UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL
1200R and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller can process IP fragmented packets.
After you have prepared all UNIVERGE WL APs, reconfigure the UNIVERGE WL
Wireless Controller so it is not the Master. A Master UNIVERGE WL Wireless
Controller should only be used for configuring UNIVERGE WL APs and not in a
working network.
After completing Step 2: Configuring the UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL
1200R Before Installation for all UNIVERGE WL APs and UNIVERGE WL 1200Rs,
continue with Step 3: Preparing Mounting Locations.

Documentation to return your UNIVERGE WL APs.
When you are installing a UNIVERGE WL 1200R or a Layer 3 UNIVERGE
WL AP on a different subnet than the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller,
MAKE SURE that a DHCP server is available on the subnet where you will
be installing the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R, and that the subnet has a
route back to the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Also make sure that
the route back to the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller has destination
UDP ports 12222 and 12223 open for LWAPP communications. Ensure the
route back to the Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller allows IP
packet fragments. Finally, make sure that if address translation is used,
that the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller have a static 1-to-1
NAT to an outside address. (Port Address Translation is not supported.)
6.
When you have installed and powered up the AP or UNIVERGE WL
1200R in its final destination, verify that the LEDs are in the same state
they were in at the end of Step 4. If no LEDs are on, the AP or
UNIVERGE WL 1200R is most likely not receiving power. If all the LEDs
blink sequentially back and forth for more than five minutes, the AP is
unable to find its Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Check the
connection between the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller,
and make sure the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller are
either on the same subnet or that the AP has a route back to its Primary
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Note that the UNIVERGE WL 1200Rs
at each remote location must be on the same subnet to allow client
roaming. Also, if the UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R is not on
the same subnet as the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, make sure
there is a DHCP server on the same subnet as the UNIVERGE WL AP or
UNIVERGE WL 1200R.
After you have prepared all UNIVERGE WL APs, reconfigure the UNIVERGE WL

Interface using the CLI, Web Browser, or WLCS user interface.
When you are installing a UNIVERGE WL 1200R or a UNIVERGE WL AP, a
DHCP server must be accessible by the UNIVERGE WL 1200R or a
UNIVERGE WL AP.
4.
Take the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R out of the box and plug it into the
network so that it can request an IP address from the DHCP server.
5.
Apply power to the AP:
-
Use 802.3af-compliant Power Over Ethernet (PoE) from the
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller or from an orderable inline
power injector. If you do not have PoE available, use an
orderable external AC-to-48 VDC Power Supply plugged into the
side of the AP.
-
After powering up the AP, the RED Alarm LED comes on for a
short period (about 15-20 seconds) and then all the LEDs blink
sequentially back and forth, indicating that the AP is trying to
find a UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller to connect to. This can
continue for up to five minutes. If the AP remains in this mode
for more than five minutes, the AP is unable to find the Master
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Check the connection
between the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller and
make sure the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller are
on the same subnet.
-
If the power light does not come on, check the power (it can be
powered either with Power over Ethernet or a from an orderable
AP External Power Supply.
UNIVERGE WL Access Point (External-Antenna) Quick Installation Guide

6.
The AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R requests an IP address from the DHCP
server, and the DHCP server returns an IP address for the AP or
UNIVERGE WL 1200R, and also returns the <Switch IP Address> of the
configuring UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller.
Once the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R finds the configuring UNIVERGE
WL Wireless Controller, it attempts to download the new UNIVERGE WL
Operating System code if the AP code version differs from the configuring UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller code version. While this is
happening, the LEDs on the top of the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R blink
on and off together.
7.
8.
NOTE
Once the UNIVERGE WL Operating System code download is successful,
the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R reboots. The GREEN LED turns on and
the two YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE LEDs indicate the states of the
802.11a and 802.11b/g networks. If any part of the network is disabled
in the configuring UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, the corresponding
YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE LED remains off.
-
Note that the Red LED can light for a short period (10-20
seconds) when the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R reboots. If the
RED LED comes on AND STAYS ON for more than a minute,
disconnect the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R and call NEC
Technical Support.
-
From the CLI, Web Browser or WLCS interface, configure the AP
with its Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller name (which
can be the name of the configuring UNIVERGE WL Wireless
Controller).
-
If required, use the CLI, Web Browser or WLCS interface to
customize the AP- or UNIVERGE WL 1200R-specific 802.11a,
802.11b and 802.11g network settings. Once again, the two
YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE LEDs indicate the states of the
802.11a and 802.11b/g networks. If any part of the network is
disabled, the corresponding YELLOW/AMBER/ORANGE LED
remains off.
If everything works (the GREEN LED is on and the RED LED is off),
reboot the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R and install it as described in this
document. If your UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R fails this
visual test, refer to the RMA Procedures located in the UNIVERGE WL
Product Documentation to return your UNIVERGE WL APs.
When you are installing a UNIVERGE WL 1200R or a Layer 3 UNIVERGE
WL AP on a different subnet than the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller,
MAKE SURE that a DHCP server is available on the subnet where you will
be installing the AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R, and that the subnet has a
route back to the Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Also make
sure that the route back to the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller has
destination UDP ports 12222 and 12223 open for LWAPP communications.
Ensure the route back to the Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller
allows IP packet fragments. Finally, make sure that if address translation
is used, that the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller have a
static 1-to-1 NAT to an outside address. (Port Address Translation is not
supported.)

9.
When you have installed and powered up the AP or UNIVERGE WL
1200R in its final destination, verify that the LEDs are in the same state
they were in at the end of Step 7. If no LEDs are on, the AP or
UNIVERGE WL 1200R is most likely not receiving power. If all the LEDs
blink sequentially back and forth for more than five minutes, the AP is
unable to find its Primary UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Check the
connection between the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller,
and make sure the AP and the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller are
either on the same subnet or that the AP has a route back to its Primary
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller. Note that the UNIVERGE WL 1200Rs
at each remote location must be on the same subnet to allow client
roaming. Also, if the UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R is not on
the same subnet as the UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, make sure
that a DHCP server is accessible on the same subnet as the UNIVERGE
WL AP or UNIVERGE WL 1200R.
After completing Step 2: Configuring the UNIVERGE WL AP or UNIVERGE WL
1200R Before Installation for all UNIVERGE WL APs and UNIVERGE WL 1200Rs,
continue with Step 3: Preparing Mounting Locations.
Step 3: Preparing Mounting Locations
Step 3: Preparing Mounting Locations
On your map, you should have the UNIVERGE WL AP locations, mounting
options, and power options.
•
Find the required mounting locations.
•
Use the ceiling-mount base to mark the wall or ceiling locations for
sheet metal, drywall, or other screws. Make sure you leave enough
space around the UNIVERGE WL AP and base to plug the CAT-5 cable,
optional external antenna cable(s), optional power supply cable, and
optional Kensington MicroSaver Security Cable into the sides of the
UNIVERGE WL AP.

optional power supply cable, and optional Kensington MicroSaver
Security Cable into the sides of the UNIVERGE WL AP.
Figure - Factory-Orderable Mounting Brackets
•
If necessary, drill holes for the various cables where they can be mostly
hidden from casual view. When you are mounting the UNIVERGE WL AP
using a projection-mount L-bracket (the one with two long legs) the
cables can be routed through the 5/8-inch (15.9 mm) holes in the
bracket.
•
Route the CAT-5, optional power supply, optional external antenna
cable(s), and optional Kensington MicroSaver Security cables to where
they can plug into the UNIVERGE WL AP. Make sure to leave about
6 inches (15 cm) of slack in the cables for future modifications.
•
Attach the brackets to the wall or ceiling, or install screws for ceilingmount base:
-
Where you are going to use the projection-mount or flushmount bracket, use customer-supplied sheet metal, drywall, or
other screws to attach the bracket to the ceiling or wall.
-
Where you are going to use the ceiling-mount base, install
customer-supplied sheet metal, drywall, or other screws with 1/
4 inch (6.35 mm) or smaller heads protruding from the ceiling
about 0.1 inch (2.5 mm).
You are now ready to install the UNIVERGE WL APs. Continue with Step 4:

About Cables
About Cables
•
You will run one CAT-5 Ethernet cable from the UNIVERGE WL AP to the
UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, another network device, or a PoE
injector/hub.
When the UNIVERGE WL AP will be mounted below the ceiling using the
ceiling mount or wall mount brackets, you may have to drill a hole into
the ceiling plenum to run the CAT-5 cable to the wiring closet. When the
CAT-5 cable cannot be run through the ceiling plenum, find another path
to route the cable from the UNIVERGE WL AP to the wiring closet.
When the UNIVERGE WL AP will be mounted above the ceiling using the
ceiling mount or wall mount brackets, run the CAT-5 cable to the wiring
closet through the ceiling plenum. When the CAT-5 cable cannot be run
through the ceiling plenum, find another path to route the cable from
the UNIVERGE WL AP to the wiring closet.
•
When you are powering the UNIVERGE WL AP from AC power, route the
power supply cable from the AC convenience outlet to the UNIVERGE WL
AP. Make sure you secure the AC power plug so it will be difficult for
people to pull on the power cord or unplug the power supply from the AC
power outlet.
•
When you are powering the UNIVERGE WL AP from a PoE source
(UNIVERGE WL Wireless Controller, another network device, or a PoE
injector/hub), you do not need to route a separate power cable to the
UNIVERGE WL AP, because the UNIVERGE WL AP will receive its power
across the CAT-5 Ethernet cable. Return the power supply to the
wireless network planner/manager.

NOTE
NOTE
Because the UNIVERGE WL AP internal antennas have been designed to
reduce inter-floor interference, it is strongly recommended that you
mount the UNIVERGE WL AP standing or hanging straight up or down.
You can mount the UNIVERGE WL APs in the ceiling plenum or below the
ceiling using the ceiling mount base or wall mount brackets, but the
UNIVERGE WL APs perform best when mounted below the ceiling.
•
When you are mounting the UNIVERGE WL AP in the middle of a ceiling,
hallway, or ceiling plenum, you will typically use the color-coordinated
ceiling-mount base to stabilize the UNIVERGE WL AP after it is mounted.
Use the mounting base to mark the sheet metal, drywall, or other screw
locations.
The mounting base attaches to the bottom of the UNIVERGE WL AP with
two supplied screws, and then the assembly slides and locks onto two
sheet metal, drywall, or other screws.
•
When you are mounting the UNIVERGE WL AP out from a wall (flat sides
along the room or hallway), use the projection-mount L-bracket
supplied with the UNIVERGE WL AP. Use the L-bracket to mark the sheet
metal, drywall, or other screw locations.
•
When you are mounting the UNIVERGE WL AP against a wall (flat Side A
toward the inside of the building), use the flush-mount bracket supplied
with the UNIVERGE WL AP. The flush-mount L-bracket is the one with
one long and one short leg. Use the L-bracket to mark the sheet metal,
drywall, or other screw locations.
