DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) for Each VLAN
The DHCP server hands out custom IP addresses for every SSID, so you can allot different content-filtering parameters to each SSID. This saves you the hassle of having to assign individual IP addresses to every user.
- IP addresses given to students on SSID #1 can be filtered one way
- IP addresses belonging to staff on SSID #2 can be filtered another
Allows traffic on one SSID to travel to other SSIDs, the Internet, and different areas of your local area network. In other words, it can serve as your core router.
Multicast DNS (Domain Name System)
Permits communication between network-connected devices, applications, and services, no matter which SSID the user is on.
RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service)
An alternative to filtering through SSIDs. Users enter a username and password to authenticate their status (student, teacher, etc.) and are filtered accordingly.
Blocks guests and other “outsiders” from accessing your school’s local servers when they log on to your wireless network. It’s a secure way to keep your resources off limits to unauthorized users.
