The VLAN Mangement Policy Server (VMPS) system allows administrators to assign machines to a VLAN based on their MAC address. The protocol itself was designed by Cisco, and is only implemented on some Cisco switches.

FreeRADIUS added VMPS support in Release 2.0.0, and is currently the only actively maintained Open Source VMPS server.

VMPS policies can be stored in flat-text files, and a sample policy is shipped in the server as raddb/sites-available/vmps. The VLAN assignments can also be stored in SQL, which simplifies the management of thousands of devices.
