Future Setup

Assuming we get a pfsense box, that can do router-on-a-stick kinda setup (or if one of our switches does routing, great)

ISP VDSL modem → pfsense→ vlans → core switch → [details below]

vlan 1
# General vlan for member devices
# General wireless
# Any untagged traffic

vlan 2
# Space infrastructure
# file servers
# phones
# printers
# isvhsopen box

vlan 3
# Other servers

vlan 4
#iot network (possibly on it's own wireless device as well, right now served as a second ssid from cisco wap)

vlan 99
# management interface for network devices
