-Friendly ​name of the site. This will show up as the site name in the controller.+Here you can tell the controller what name your site should be displayed asStandard it's marked ​as default, but especially when having multiple physical networks ​in a single ​controller, it can be useful to change this.
  
 === Country: === === Country: ===
  
-Physical location of site.+The country that the site resides in, defines a few things:\\ 
 +  * Each country has its own regulations regarding maximum output power and available channels. The US for instance, allows a maximum total power output of 36 dbi, while the Netherlands only allows 20 dbi. This is similar as with channels on both the 2.4 and 5 ghz radio'​s. 
 +  * It also is for assigning the location in your controller, so that you can distinguish between instances. 
 + 
 +//You might be thinking "well, i'll just change my settings to another country, so that I can crank up my power on my access points."​ But because each country comes with it's own channels, this usually doesn'​t work. Also keep in mind, when designing a network for use in situations where you might expect frequent visitors from other countries, that their equipment might not support all channels that are common in your country.//
   
 +=== Time Zone ===

 +Here you can select the time zone your network is in. This impacts the scheduling feature for updating firmware.
