Providing a path for downloading 802.1X supplicant software

For clients that do not have the necessary 802.1X supplicant software, there is also the option to configure the 802.1X Open VLAN mode. This mode allows you to assign such clients to an isolated VLAN through which you can provide the necessary supplicant software these clients need to begin the authentication process (see 802.1X Open VLAN mode).
