The first of a series of free tools offered for public use, IPTel have released the MAC Address Conversion Tool.
Ever needed to convert a multitude of different style MAC addresses to the format required for upload to Prime (which is in the format)?
Maybe you just take a bunch of MAC addresses and format them in the same way? This tool is here to help.
The MAC Address Converter tool can be found from this link: https://www.iptel.com.au/mac-address-converter.html
The tool is pretty simple, but offers a time saving way of ensuing all your MAC addresses are formatted the same, prior to using them for a CSV import.
The base entry screen is shown below – enter your MAC addresses and click the convert button. You can copy and paste into the tool if you want to convert a bunch of entries at once:
The example below details a number of sample MAC addresses in different formats being pasted into the tool. Click the convert button and they’re all changes to the quad hex digit format, separated by full stops. Note the tool does not check you have entered valid hex digits or enough characters (12 for a MAC address) – so just make sure you have the basics covered.
The output from the random different input formats is a consistent four digit dotted hex (aaaa.bbbb.cccc). Once updated, use the output in your CSV for upload to Prime.
We supply the tools on this website free of charge for the wireless community use. Note with all our tools the liability disclaimer – we do our best to make these tools as useful as we can, but accept no liability for their use or misuse:
