In this network upgrade, the company deployed two of the gateway SG-5110 and two stacked S5860-20SQ switches, and VRRP was configured to achieve reliable ingress and operation redundancy. Together they guarantee the uninterrupted working experience and easy management. LACP method was used among the access and core switches, so employees can enjoy stable and high-speed data transmission in the LAN network.

A wireless LAN controller also simplifies the monitoring of the APs.
