What Is an NWAM Configuration?

An NWAM configuration consists of several components that work together to effect the network configuration of a system in as automated of a manner as possible. With the primary focus on mobility, NWAM is capable of dynamically changing a system's configuration, in response to different network events, or at a user's request. NWAM includes dynamic capabilities that address any changes in network conditions, for example, if your wired network interface becomes unplugged, or if a new wireless network becomes available.

Network configuration through NWAM is made up of properties and their values that are associated with several different types of profiles, which are also sometimes referred to as configuration objects.

These profiles and configuration objects include the following:
