Airwave report unique client definition and time fram

I currenty generated a report, and it show unique client in the report, and I knew that unique client means "The unique clients count is the total number of unique MAC addresses seen on that network during the given timeframe for the report."

But I didn't understand the methodolegy of how to count the unique MAC address, let say, if 10 people join the network in April and May, then we generate report of May, would it count 10 unique MAC address in May's report?

This sounds like a word problem!


So if Train A has 10 people on April 5th.  A report run for April 1 - May 1 would be expected to have at least 10 unique clients.


The unique client count is a count of all unique MAC addresses that were on the network during the time period of the reporting window.


Keep in mind that MAC addresses are usually unique between devices.  So if 10 people had used the same library computer, it would only register as 1 unique client.
