XFi Advanced Gateway xb7, what's special about the orange ethernet port?

Hey Guys - 

 

I just received the new gray/white XFi Advanced Gateway XB7 (Wifi-6). On the back of the router/access-point I see four ports, but only the fourth ethernet port has a orange sticker/mark.

 

Anyone know what's so special about it?

It means that that port is a 2.5 Gbps speed capable one rather than only a 1 Gbps speed capable one as are the others.
