Service Zones are virtual partitions of the physical LAN side of a 4ipnet Controller.
Similar to VLANs, they can be separately managed and defined, having their own user
landing pages, network interface settings, DHCP servers, authentication options,
policies and security settings, and so on. By associating a unique VLAN Tag (when it is
tag-based) and an SSID with its Service Zone, administrator can flexibly separate the
wired and wireless networks easily.
Tag-based or Port-based Service Zones
4ipnet WHG controllers offer two modes of physical LAN port to service zone mappings,
namely port-based mode and tag-based mode. Intuitively as the name suggests,
Port-based mode means that each LAN port services one or none Service Zones, so
the maximum number of service zones is equivalent to the number of LAN ports on a
4ipnet WHG controller.
On the contrary, Tag-based service zones are not limited by the number of ports, for
they are specified by the VLAN tag ID pre-defined by the admin, regardless of which
LAN port. A simple concept is displayed in the picture below.
As the figure depicts, a staff of a firm is associated with a certain SSID broadcast by
an access point. This SSID belongs to, let’s say, VAP with VLAN ID 15. Therefore the
AP’s traffic when forwarded back to the Controller will be mapped to Service Zone 1
with configurations set for staff access.
Admin can change the type of service zones. There are some grayed-out service zones
because they have been disabled. Therefore, admin should first go to ‘System >
Service Zones > Configure’ to enable the needed service zones.
If the setting is change to Tag-based, the correspondence of service zones and ports
will be grayed out. Each Service Zone will need to be assigned a unique VLAN ID,
ranging from 1 to 4096.
Portal de la Marina is a prominent shopping center in the Marina Alta region of Alicante. As a universe of fun and shopping, Portal de la Marina carries leading brands in fashion, services, home items, restaurants, as well as a giant Hypermarket. With its Mediterranean character, custom-tailored to the needs of the area, the complex has been designed to capture the magical, mysterious effect of city streets of southeastern Spain. Aiming to be the perfect leisure paradise for all customers, a reliable and secure Wi-Fi infrastructure must be in place to keep the guest experience at top-notch level. The complexity of the project lies in several aspects. First, the visual impact had to be almost nonexistent. Second, the installation and implementation had to be fast and in non-business hours. Last but not least, provide the highest ratio of coverage and bandwidth to overcome all architectural barriers. Due to the vast scale of the property (90,000 m2) and the main catchment area of c
