IOS8 vs ARM3.0 Virtual Beacon Report

Hi all, just going through October update from Michael Owen and am interested to know how IOS8 random MAC address on beacons will effect VBR and consecuently ARM3.0 decission.

Will Aruba introduce a filter for IOS8 or a permanent feature just in case other manufacturers follow?

No changes would be necessary at this time:  http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/09/25/apples-new-feature-to-curb-phone-tracking-wont-work-if-youre-actually-using-your-phone/

Hi Colin, i was under the impression that the random MAC address is used on Managments packets like Beacons.

If ARM 3.0 is using it's VBR database to make sound decissions than how will the rogue entries affect it's results and change frequency?
