Huawei ACU2 Overview

Huawei Access Controller Unit 2 (ACU2) is a WLAN service unit installed on Huawei S12700/S9700/S7700 switches, and provides Access Controller (AC) functions. The ACU2 can be used to provide wireless services on large enterprise or campus networks. It features large capacity, high reliability, various types of services, and works with Huawei wireless Access Points (APs) to deliver large-scale, high-density access services.A WLAN can be built rapidly by adding ACU2s to wired network switches. This shortens WLAN construction costs and time, and reduces the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Huawei ACU2 leads the industry with the capacity to manage 2,048 APs. It provides flexible data forwarding, fine-grained user group management control policies, comprehensive radio management, and end-to-end QoS guarantees.

Differentiators
1: Flexible deployment and data forwarding include inline or bypass deployment, direct (local or distributed) forwarding, and tunnel (centralized) forwarding
2: Large-capacity, high-performance AC with 40 Gbit/s line-speed centralized forwarding, 2K managed APs, and 32K access users
3: As an independent service unit, the ACU2 adds easy deployment, centralized management, and seamless expansion
4: Fine-grained user rights management with user-and role-based access controls; rich authentication mechanisms minimize WLAN security threats
