two SSID values are being broadcast

My Xfinity wifi gateway is broadcasting two SSID's.  I set my SSID to "dummy" and I can see that there are two SSID values being broadcast "dummy" and "dummy_plus".  Where is "dummy_plus" coming from?

Hi itisivo. I can assist in checking on your gateways additional SSID broadcast. Without accessing gateway, I'm not able to tell you what this could be. To get started, please send me a private message and include your full name, service address, and account number so I can access your account.

If you have a dual band gateway device, one of them is probably the 2.4 GHz broadcast SSID and the other is probably the 5.0 GHz band broadcast SSID
