We are excited to announce that we have launched our new Hive Community! HiveNation will remain as an archive, but all new posts, discussions, and articles will be created on Hive Community. You can visit our new community at thehivecommunity.aerohive.com
To give you a quick overview, Client Classification Policy can assign different policies for different clients/devices.
Probably the easiest way is to give you an example:
I am using it for a classic BYOD solution - to separate corporate devices and non-corporate devices having only one SSID
When you connect a device to the network, Access Point determines to which vlan assign the device: - if it's a corporate device (joined to the windows domain) - vlan 2 and full access - if non-corporate (non-domain PC) - vlan 3 and internet access only
But you can be even more specific: - if a cisco phone - vlan 4 and qos applied - if a samsung phone - vlan 5 and access to company intranet - if ipad - vlan 5 and block skype on Friday...
