Setting up multiple networks

Table of contents
No headers
In environments where you have purchased multiple Devices to provide service for different locations, you have option to create different networks. Setting up different networks allows you to manage the network more efficiently and keep better statistics and records. Also, this is mandatory for SecurityAppliances, and only one MX or Z1 can be in a network. 

Follow the steps below to set up a network.


  1. Log in to Dashboard.
  2. Make sure the serial number of the device(s) do not belong in any other network.
  3. In the upper-right hand corner, there is a pull-down menu that allows you to Select a network. Choose "Create a new network".
  4. Follow the prompts to create a new network. 
  5. Add your device(s).
