External Servers#

Silicon Labs provides external DHCPv6 and authentication servers with configuration examples to give you the possibility of managing your network at a large scale, and to avoid using the internal default server that is meant for an out-of-the-box experience, and doesn’t allow too much flexibility in configuration.

The external DHCPv6 servers can help you unify the IPv6 routing around all your nodes, instead of having different prefixes set by each of your border routers. And having an external authentication server, will let you manage authentication on all your network using one server.
