i-tec Docker Pro, Software for Enterprise Docking
Universal docking stations; docking stations that are not associated to any particular notebook brand or model, are not capable of cloning the MAC address of the host notebook. They always submit their own LAN port MAC address to the corporate network. Technically, this means any notebook connected to the docking station can try to connect to the network, even those that do not have administrator permission. As a result, due to security concerns, universal docking stations can prove to be a bottleneck for IT Managers, especially in companies where network access and rights are tightly controlled.
i-tec Docker Pro provides MAC address cloning
A software extension allows the virtual replication of the notebook MAC address. This includes the MAC address of WiFi and Bluetooth adapters too, not only the LAN adapter address itself. This feature is enabled for all notebooks equipped with Windows 10, when used in conjunction with a i-tec docking station with a LAN port.
