To deploy a network for a new branch, a WiFi network "SSID-FREE" is provided for external personnel for free. The WLAN for clients on floor 3 is divided into VLAN 10, and the WLAN for clients on floor 4 is divided into VLAN 20. The roaming function is supported, and the uplink and downlink rates of all clients are limited to 100 Kbps.
