Wireless Distribution System (WDS) allows you to make a completely wireless infrastructure. Normally, the access points must be connected with a wire (LAN). These access points create cells allowing a wireless connection. The WDS feature allows the access points to be wirelessly connected. This feature is normally used in large, open areas where pulling a wire is restricted or not cost effective and in residential circumstances

W-stands for Indian broad gauge, D stands for Diesel, S-Used for shunting (Also known as switching engines or switchers in United states and some other countries). Shunting locomotives (Also known as switching engines): * WDS 1 (First widely deployed and successful diesel locomotives used in India. Imported in 1944-45. currently out of service. 386 hp) * WDS 2 (currently out of service.) * WDS 3 (All locomotives of this class were rebuilt and reclassified as WDS 4C in 1976-78. 618 hp) * WDS 4,WDS 4A,WDS 4B,WDS 4D (Designed by Chittaranjan Locomotive Works. 600-700 hp) * WDS 4C (Rebuilt WDS 3 locos as mentioned above) * WDS 5 * WDS 6 * WDS 8 Note: There is no electric shunting engine in India. Classes from WDS 1 to WDS 4D have hydraulic transmission. The WDS 4, 4A, 4B, 4C and 4D are the only still existing broad gauge locomotives with diesel-hydraulic transmission.
