Device names when using Ethernet switches

Nokia WiFi Beacons support using Ethernet switches in its topology for both WAN and LAN networks. When a Layer2 Switch is used on the LAN side, there are some limitations.

Ethernet client devices differs in WEBGUI from Portal or Mobile App
When Ethernet clients connected via L2 Switch in the Nokia WiFi network, all of the Ethernet client names will be displayed on the Web GUI but the Nokia WiFi Portal and the mobile app might not show all of the device names in the same way. They will show device names based on MAC address per port.
