Zone Mapping

The Kiwire zone module allow you to define zone that group devices and infrastructure setting to logical groups. Each zone can contain any number of devices. A zone is define by grouping of NAS ID, IP address, VLAN and Wi-Fi SSID. A zone can mix SSID with other zone to create a sub zone or you can add more rules to create a master zone such as multiple VLAN, multiple SSID.  Zone allow you to easily manage your network or integrate Kiwire platform into your deployment. Kiwire Zone platform also allows you to apply policy to  limit maximum allowed concurrent login within the zone this is useful if you have limited bandwidth in the zone and only allow the zone to be able to accept a certain connected number of users.



How Kiwire Zone Works?

Zone are define by mixture of SSID, User’s IP address, NAS device and VLAN, it can be a mixture of any of the item, if a user traffic is define by the zone, it will go thru the specific zone policy created prior to connect to internet.

Example Zone Defination:
Zone VLAN IP Address SS ID NAS ID
Zone A 100
Zone B wifi1
Zone C 192.168.1.0/24
Zone D mynas1

  • A network traffic that is vlan 100 will be classified as Zone A.
  • A network traffic that is vlan 100 and have SSID “wifi1” will be Zone B.
  • A network traffic that source IP is 192.168.1.x subnet will be Zone C.
  • A network traffic that is from NAS ID “mynas1” will be Zone D.
