Location data is expressed either as a BSSID if the network adapter media type is Wireless LAN, or as a tuple <ChassisId, Port Number> if the network adapter type is Ethernet. The data is represented according to the LLDP protocol.

For examples of how to retrieve data represented by a LanIdentifier object, see How to retrieve network adapter and locality information.
