Can anyone give me more details around Client Classification Policy.  How it works? and does this option resign the vlan for the reassigned user profile?

Hi Justine,

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...


Hope this gives you some idea :)
