The wireless network types Employee, Voice, and Guest are used when creating a new SSID. This article explains these network types.
Employee: This network type is designed for the corporate employees who can access the protected data of an enterprise through the employee network after successful authentication. It supports MAC based and 802.1X authentications. Any traffic from this network is subjected to the configured QoS. If no QoS is defined, the traffic would go without prioritization.
Voice: This network type is designed for VOIP clients. As voice traffic is time sensitive and may easily get disrupted due to congestion/interference in the network, it needs to be prioritized. Any traffic from this network gets prioritized as Voice.
Guest: This network type is designed for the guest users who use the enterprise Wi-Fi network. These users may require only a limited access to the network and to the internet. This network type uses captive portal authentication to allow access to the internet for the guest users.
