1310 AP Deployment Questions


We have a 4402 Controller which has 50 1310 LAPs.

Our New deployment will be a mesh mode. Since 1310 AP don't support mesh mode they will be in autonomous mode.

I will deploy 5 Etsi config 1310. 2 will be 10 dbi Yagi anten and they will act as root AP. 3 of 1310s will be Repeater or Non-Root mode and will have 2506 5.2 omni anten. The repetaer aps are mobile.


1. I have tried to config the 1310 aps as WDS for Roaming but 1310 seems don't support wds configuration. I don't see wds commands on cli neither on gui.I have upgraded them to latest ios and read the versions configuration user guide and see that that version support wds. But I still cannot run commands What can I do for roaming? There will be no radius server and the authentication will be psk.

2. On repater mode there will be no need to worry for roaming??? but on non-root mode the roaming will be problem.

3. If I use 3 aps as repeater mode can I carry the wireless signal faraway as on root - non-root mode. The location will be 800 meters and 2 root aps will be on edges. Repeater aps are between them

4. The repater or non-root aps will be mobile. There is a great command for that "mobile station" but I can not run this on 1310. I tried several versions of ios but same problem. So when a ap moves to close to other root ap it must be associate with it because it's signal rate will be higher. Is there a solution for it on 1310 aps?

Here is the version info:

ROM: Bootstrap program is C1310 boot loader
BOOTLDR: C1310 Boot Loader (C1310-BOOT-M) Version 12.3(2)JA4, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

ap uptime is 33 minutes
System returned to ROM by power-on
System image file is "flash:/c1310-k9w7-mx.124-21a.JA1/c1310-k9w7-mx.124-21a.JA1"
