Hi all,
I have a client who would like to have an easy way to switch on/off one of WLAN. The client has two WLANs - one for employee and another one for guests. The ideal solution would be a switch or button. In this way a secretary can push the button and switch on an ofen WLAN for guests.

The client has a controller vSZ-E 3.6
Does anybody have an idea how it can be done?

Hi Igor,

These are several ways you can do this:

1. Use Scheduler, a build in feature to schedule WLAN operation based on time of the day and day of the week. This method would automatically turn on/off the WLAN based on parameters you give it. This is the easiest way to go.

It can be found in this document, on Page 132

2. Turn the WLAN on/off using CLI (SSH Command Line Interface)

In this method there would be some sort of script that would add or delete WLAN from the desired WLAN Group. Based on your OS implementation, it can be Bash or Power Shell scripts.

Use this document for reference:

3. Same as previous, only using SNMP


4. Same as #2, only using RESTful API


Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Alex
