Title: CONTROL METHOD AND APPARATUS OF WIRELESS ACCESS POINT
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a control method and an apparatus of a wireless access point (AP). The method comprises: a network element of a cellular network obtaining a number of user equipments for which a data service occurs; if the number of the user equipments for which the data service occurs is less than a first threshold, sending a first notification message for closing APs in coverage of a cell to an AC so as to enable the AC to send an instruction message for closing a radio frequency module to APs in an AP list of APs to be closed, wherein the cell is a cell in coverage of the AC; if the number of the user equipments for which the data service occurs is greater than a second threshold, sending a second notification message for opening the APs in the coverage of the cell to the AC so as to enable the AC to send an instruction message for opening the radio frequency module to APs in an AP list of APs to be opened, wherein the second threshold is not less than the first threshold. The present invention implements that a cellular network is used to identify moments for opening and closing APs, thus implementing intelligence in opening and closing the radio frequency module of APs.
