    FAQ

    What is the VLAN Speed?

    VLAN will be limited by 500mbit as well. If you have heavy VLAN to VLAN traffic, we advise you to purchase the https://firewalla.com/purple or https://firewalla.com/gold.  The Purple SE CPU resource is limited, it is not capable of supporting high bandwidth VLAN to VLAN traffic.

    Can Firewalla WiFi SD work on the Purple SE?

    Yes. Same way as Gold.

    Can I take the Purple SE on the road?

    Yes. Please remember the Purple SE does NOT have wifi interfaces like the Purple. 

    Does the Purple SE have Bluetooth?

    Yes

    Does the Purple SE have Bluetooth so our phone App can connect to it for initial configurations or when the WAN link is not available?
