 +A client //profile// is a set of customization options that determine the features, policy settings, and behavior of the Open Mobile client. Profiles are created in the Open Mobile Portal.

 +
 +The Open Mobile Portal includes the following capabilities:

 +
 +    * Centrally manage your Open Mobile client profiles, including configuration, deployment, and testing.
 +    * View your open iPass Technical Support tickets.
 +    * Download important documentation.
