Network Attached Peripherals (NAP) Private VLANs provide a layer of additional protection for network attached peripherals including printers, electronic billboards, monitoring devices, door controllers and cameras against “network attacks” from non-UB networks and from UB ResNet, UB OpenPort and UB Wi-Fi networks. (Access to NAP VLAN's is allowed from UB Secure Wi-Fi, but not from other Wi-Fi SSID's.)
