In this video we setup our site wide WiFi settings and then we adopt a switch and access point. We discuss the plan going forward a couple of times as I think about it out loud. The switch we adopt is the GWN7813P and the access point is the GWN7661. Descriptions below! Although Grandstream provided these devices I’m not paid for these videos by them – I do however get to keep the hardware.
