Roles and Policies

The client in an Aruba user-centric network is associated with a user role, which determines the client’s network privileges, how often must they be re-authenticated, and which bandwidth contracts are applicable to each client. A policy is a set of rules that apply to the traffic that passes through the Aruba managed device. You can specify one or more policies for a user role. Finally, you can assign a user role to clients before or after they get authenticated to the system.
