VLAN and roles can be assigned using the various means:
- Per switch (default for VLAN)
- Per client category (default for roles)
- Per client
- Using any arbitrary decision (if you use our perl extension points)
Also, the per-switch method can be combined with the others. For example, with a default PacketFence setup, a VLAN or a role can be assigned to your printers and your PCs (if categorized properly) based on what equipment they are connected to. This implies that you can easily have per-building per-device type VLANs.
