Huawei eKitEngine AP160 Access Point

Product Overview
Huawei eKitEngine AP160 is a Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) wall plate 86×86 access point (AP) with an 8 mm ultra-thin panel. It provides services
simultaneously on the 2.4 GHz (2×2 MIMO) and 5 GHz (2×2 MIMO) frequency bands, achieving a maximum device rate of 1.775 Gbps. This
AP features high bandwidth, high concurrency, and compact size, facilitating flexible deployment and saving customer investment. It is ideal
for indoor coverage scenarios such as enterprise workplaces, commercial real estates, and budget chain hotels.
AP160 (White)
⚫ Dual-radio mode: 2.4 GHz (2×2) + 5 GHz (2×2), providing a maximum rate of 575 Mbps and 1.2 Gbps, respectively, and a rate of up to
1.775 Gbps for the device.
⚫ 1 x GE uplink electrical port + 1 x GE downlink electrical port.
⚫ International 86 mm x 86 mm size: easy AP installation on an exposed or embedded junction box (86 mm x 86 mm) with a minimum
depth of 35 mm.
⚫ Ultra-thin panel: 8 mm, slotting seamlessly into the power socket.
⚫ Built-in smart antenna: automatically adjusts the coverage direction and signal strength based on the intelligent switchover algorithm.
Such capability enables the AP to flexibly adapt to the application environment changes, providing accurate and stable coverage as
STAs move. Users can enjoy full signal strength when moving around in the coverage space without any network disconnection or
⚫ Working modes: Fit, Fat, and cloud management.
⚫ Deployment and O&M through the HUAWEI eKit app.

Feature Descriptions
Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard
⚫ As the latest Wi-Fi standard defined in IEEE 802.11, 802.11ax improves the user access capacity and bandwidth in high-density access
scenarios, reducing service latency and enhancing user experience.
⚫ 802.11ax supports multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, allowing
an AP to transmit data to and receive data from multiple STAs simultaneously and multiplying the utilization of radio spectrum
⚫ 802.11ax supports 1024-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), improving data transmission efficiency by 25% compared with
802.11ac (supporting 256-QAM).
⚫ Orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) technology enables the AP to transmit data to multiple STAs at the same time
using different subcarriers, reducing latency and improving network efficiency.
⚫ Spatial reuse (SR) technology uses basic service set (BSS) coloring to enable APs and STAs to distinguish overlapping BSSs, minimizing
co-channel interference.
The AP supports MU-MIMO and a maximum of four spatial streams, two spatial streams at 2.4 GHz and two spatial streams at 5 GHz. The
MU-MIMO technology enables an AP to send data to multiple STAs simultaneously, which doubles the radio spectrum resource usage,
increases the number of access users and bandwidth, and improves user experience in high-density access scenarios.

High-speed access
The AP supports 80 MHz frequency bandwidth, which increases the number of available data subcarriers and extends transmission
channels. In addition, the AP uses 1024-QAM and MU-MIMO technologies to achieve a rate of up to 0.575 Gbps on the 2.4 GHz frequency
band and 1.2 Gbps on the 5 GHz frequency band, and 1.775 Gbps for the device.
High Density Boost technology
Huawei uses the following technologies to address challenges in high-density scenarios, including access problems, data congestion, and
poor roaming experience:
5G-prior access
⚫ The AP supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands. The 5G-prior access function enables the AP to steer STAs to the 5 GHz
frequency band preferentially, which reduces loads and interference on the 2.4 GHz frequency band, improving user experience.
Wired and wireless dual security guarantee
To ensure data security, Huawei APs integrate wired and wireless security measures and provide comprehensive security protection.
Authentication and encryption for wireless access
⚫ The AP supports WEP, WPA/WPA2-PSK, WPA3-SAE, WPA/WPA2-PPSK, and WPA/WPA2/WPA3-802.1X authentication/encryption
modes to ensure wireless network security. The authentication mechanism is used to authenticate user identities so that only
authorized users can access network resources. The encryption mechanism is used to encrypt data transmitted over wireless links to
ensure that data can only be received and parsed by authorized users.
Wired access authentication and encryption for the AP
⚫ The AP access control ensures validity of APs. The Control and Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) link protection and
DTLS encryption provide security assurance, improving data transmission security between the AP and the WLAN AC (WAC).
Automatic radio calibration
Automatic radio calibration allows an AP to collect signal strength and channel parameters of surrounding APs and generate an AP topology
according to the collected data. Based on the interference caused by authorized APs, rogue APs, and non-Wi-Fi interference sources, and
their loads, the AP automatically adjusts its transmit power and working channel to make the network operate at the optimal performance.
In this way, network reliability and user experience are improved.
Cloud-based management
The AP supports cloud-based management. It provides various authentication functions, such as PSK, Portal, SMS, and social media
authentication, without the need of a WAC or an authentication server. This greatly simplifies networking and reduces CAPEX. In addition,
the AP can be deployed on a cloud management platform to implement cloud-based network planning, deployment, inspection, and O&M.
In multi-branch deployment scenarios, after cloud APs are pre-configured on the cloud management platform, deployment personnel only
need to power on the cloud APs on site, connect them to network ports of switches, and scan their QR codes to implement the plug-andplay function. Then the pre-configurations are automatically delivered to the APs. This mode greatly accelerates network deployment. The
cloud management platform can monitor the network status, device status, and STA connection status at all sites of tenants in a
comprehensive and intuitive manner.
