Client Access Policy

A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address of the client for creating client access policy. Client devices can include VOIP phones, printers, laptops, desktop computers, mobile phones, tablets, and so on.

Client tags defined in the Clients > Clients Profile page are used to identify the device type or category. You can use the system-defined tags or create custom client tags in the Clients Profile page. Cloud Authentication and Policy supports Unprofiled tag, which helps you to allow a new client to access the enterprise network that does not have any client tags associated in Aruba Central.
