|Only for domain-joined clients. Useful to reuse existing location configurations for office networks.
|Useful for distinguishing home office users in different countries or grouping clients when no further location information is available.
|Gateway MAC address
|An alternative to public IP addresses. Ideal for grouping clients in an office location that all use the same Default gateway.
