This MIB defines the configuration and statistic information of
Standard to encourage interoperability among
wireless networking equipment.
Access point (AP)
Transmitter/receiver (transceiver) device
that commonly connects and transports data
between a wireless network and a wired network.
Access control (AC)
To control and manage multi-APs, it will bridge
wireless and wired network.
Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points Protocol
The short name of protocol is CAPWAP. AC will control
and manage AP by CAPWAP tunnel protocol defined by IETF.
Also, a data tunnel will be set up between AC and AP.
IEEE 802.11 Basic Service Set (Radio Cell). The
BSS of an AP comprises of the stations directly
associated with the AP.
station (Client Station)
A wireless device in a wireless network
associated with an access point.
Message Integrity Check. A MIC can, optionally,
be added to WEP-encrypted 802.11 frames.
Radio Service Set ID. It is used for identification
A non-AP 802.11 wireless station.
Wired Equivalent Privacy. 'WEP' is generally used
to refer to 802.11 encryption.
It is the received signal strength indication.
It suggests the quality of received signal.
Request to Send, it is used to gain control of the medium
for the transmission of 'large' frames, in which 'large'
is defined by the RTS threshold in the network card driver.
Clear to Send, it is used to answer RTS frames.
The authentication and key management method defined by
802.11i, and which includes 802.1x and pre-shared key.
