WiFi Mesh

Default WiFi mesh

Most Mesh Nodes are configured with a demonstration WiFi Mesh network, (e.g. 88.io) by default, this can be turned off from the web page of each Mesh Node, so they can take advantage of the services available on the local Campus Network immediately.

For example:

  1. Infinite Disk
  2. Geo Attest

Extensible Authentication Protocol

Different Virtual Private Meshes (VPMs) can decide on their own Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), however the default EAP to get onto most VPMs is EAP-TTLS-PAP.

When using EAP-TTLS-PAP the user:

  1. MUST ENABLE Server Certificate Validation to prevent fake WiFi access point advertising the same SSID.
  2. MUST NOT use the WiFi login username and password for anything else (e.g. create a new Dynamic Alias just for WiFi)
  3. is RECOMMENDED to turn on dynamic password protection for the WiFi login password.

Recommended Positioning


If the site is small and there is only one Mesh Staton, please it as much in the middle and as high as possible.

For larger sites place multiple Mesh Stations around the perimeter of the site (next to windows) to
