Add a new device or edit an existing device basic configuration.
NoteDevice Overrides option is selected by default to ensure that device configurations receive periodic refinement automatically.
|MAC Address||Device MAC addressed assigned when adding the device. This field cannot be edited|
|Type||Device type selected when adding a device. This field cannot be edited|
|Name||Device name assigned to the selected device. Type or modify the device name using the Name field|
|Site||Device location. Use the drop-down list box to select a device site location|
|Profile||Assign a profile to the selected device. Profile allows admins to assign a common set of configuration parameters and policies to controllers, service platforms, and access points. Use the profile drop-down list box to assign a profile for the device|
|Area||Assign the physical area where the device is deployed. This can be a building, region, campus or other area that describes the deployment location|
|Floor||Assign the target a device a building Floor name representative of the location the access point, controller, or service platform was physically deployed. The name cannot exceed 64 characters. Assigning a building floor name is helpful when grouping devices within the same general coverage area|
|Floor number||Assign a numerical floor designation in respect to the floor's actual location within a building. The default setting is first floor|
|Latitude||Set the latitude coordinate where devices are deployed within a floor. When looking at a floor map, latitude lines specify the eastwest position of a point on the Earth's surface. The exact location of a device deployment can be ascertained by aligning the latitude and longitude points on the earth's surface|
|Longitude||Set the longitude coordinate where devices are deployed within a floor. When looking at a floor map, longitude lines specify the north-south position of a point on the Earth's surface. The exact location of a device deployment can be ascertained by aligning the longitude and latitude points on the earth's surface|
