Corporate mobile devices are typically configured using MDM to already
have the company 802.1x profile so they "just work" on the corporate
WiFi.  Guest mobile devices will connect to another SSID, which
usually only allows access to the internet (sometimes after agreeing
to a AUP via a captive web portal).
