In Cisco Prime Infrastructure there is a tool called the Rail Line. It acts as a collection point for clients who constantly roam within a floor or outside an areas map, when they shouldn’t be.
Wireless clients within a specified distance to the rail line will be shown as connected at the line, rather than their actual location. This could be handy for hospitals to show devices around the beds, but not on them, or places like internet cafes,where many wireless clients cluster while remaining mobile.
Defining a rail line allows for your users to stay within certain parameters, although this does mean that when it is the actual location of a client, it will not show it with complete accuracy. It gives you a better idea for the clients that continually roam outside the areas that they really are.
