Interface groups are logical groups of interfaces. Interface groups facilitate user configuration where the same interface group can be configured on multiple WLANs or while overriding a WLAN interface per AP group. An interface group can exclusively contain either quarantine or nonquarantine interfaces. An interface can be part of multiple interface groups.
A WLAN can be associated with an interface or interface group. The interface group name and the interface name cannot be the same.
This feature also enables you to associate a client to specific subnets based on the foreign controller that they are connected to. The anchor controller WLAN can be configured to maintain a mapping between the foreign controller MAC and a specific interface or interface group (Foreign maps) as needed. If this mapping is not configured, clients on that foreign controller get VLANs associated in a round-robin fashion from the interface group that is configured on the WLAN. This feature also enables you to receive VLAN overrides from the RADIUS server.
