A profile's device interface configuration can be refined to support separate physical Ethernet configurations both unique and specific to each type of wireless controllers and service platforms. Ports vary depending on platform, but controller or service platform models do have some of the same physical interfaces.
Controllers, service platforms and access points require their Virtual Interface be configured for layer 3 (IP) access or layer 3 service on a VLAN.
A Virtual Interface defines which IP address is associated with each VLAN ID the device is connected to. If the profile is configured to support an access point radio, additional options are available unique to the radio's capabilities.
