The HP A5800 Access Controller Module (ACM) for 64–256 access points (APs) supports up to 64 APs by default. After adding an upgrade license for 32 additional users (up to six licenses for 32 additional users are supported), it can support up to 256 APs.

The HP A5800 Access Controller Module (ACM) for 64–256 access points (APs) supports up to 64 APs by default. After adding an upgrade license for 32 additional users (up to six licenses for 32 additional users are supported), it can support up to 256 APs, and thus can satisfy the deployment requirements of large-size wireless networks. The module is applicable for two models of the HP A5800 Switch series: A5820-14XG-SFP+ Switch with 2 Slots and A5800-48G Switch with 2 Slots.
Features of the HP A5800 Access Controller OAA Module
End-to-end QoS: based on the Comware V5 platform, the A5800 ACM (for 64–256 APs) supports not only the DiffServ standard but also the IPv6 QoS; the QoS DiffServ model includes traffic classification and traffic policing, completely implementing the six groups of services—EF, AF1 through AF4, and BE; this enables ISPs to provide differentiated services for users, making the Internet a true integrated network carrying data, voice, and video services at the same time
Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ
Automatic radio power adjustment: automatic AP power adjustment features analyze user access status in real time, adapting power requirements based on environmental changes and providing high-quality user access signal coverage
Automatic radio channel adjustment: intelligent channel switching and real-time interference detection provide the allocation of a high-quality channel to each AP, reducing adjacent channel interference
Load balancing: intelligent load-sharing analyzes the locations of wireless clients in real time, providing high-quality client throughput regardless of location or number of online sessions
Rogue AP detection: regular scans for rogue APs help confirm that the network is secure
Enterprise network management: is supported by the Web-based, enterprise-class HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) network management platform and Wireless Service Management (WSM), which effectively integrate traditionally disparate management tools into one easy-to-use interface
IPv6: IPv6 host: enables controllers to be managed and deployed at the IPv6 network's edge. Dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6): transitions from IPv4 to IPv6, supporting connectivity for both protocols. MLD snooping: IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface, preventing traffic flooding. IPv6 ACL/QoS: supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic.
IEEE 802.11h International Telecommunication Union (ITU) compliant: employs Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) to automatically select another channel and adjust transmit power to reduce interference with systems such as radar, if detected on that same channel
Flexible forwarding modes: the A5800 ACM (for 64–256 APs) supports both distributed forwardingmode and centralized forwarding mode; you can set SSID-based forwarding type as needed; in a wireless network of centralized forwarding mode, all wireless traffic is sent to an AC for processing; if there is a wireless network where APs are deployed at branches, ACs are deployed at the headquarters, and APs and ACs are connected over a WAN, the distributed mode will be necessary
Carrier-class wireless user access control: user-based access control is a feature of the A5800 ACM (for 64–256 APs); for different application scenarios, you can configure different items in a user profile, such as Committed Access Rate (CAR) and QoS policies
Fast roaming: supports Layer 3 roaming and fast roaming, satisfying the most demanding voice service requirements
High performance: robust switching capacity and wire-speed processing provide powerful forwarding capacity for medium and large enterprise-size wireless LANs (WLANs)
High reliability: the A5800 ACM (for 64–256 APs) supports 1+1, N+1, and N+N backup; the 1+1 redundancy configuration of the A5800 ACM (for 64–256 APs) supports subsecond level failover; fit APs establish CAPWAP links with both ACs, but only the links to the active AC are active; when the active AC fails, the heartbeat mechanism between the two ACs ensures that the standby AC can sense the failure within 300 ms and then inform APs to use links to it, thus ensuring service continuity
